It is with great sorrow that we had to say goodbye to our black labrador Archibald yesterday. He was not only a loyal companion, best friend (and of course “hairy brother” to Eddie), but he was our inspiration. We all fell in love with this part of Northumberland together with long walks along Hadrian’s Wall, and his enthusiasm and energy was boundless. He was instrumental in our dream of setting up a B&B which was dog-friendly, and Layside will not be the same without him. Gone, but never forgotten.
