Once a week throughout the year Bernard's owner Graeme Hodge rowed across to Bernard's island to drop off feed for him.
But despite surviving his year-long ordeal, Bernard was badly injured after he left the island and the Hodge family had to make the tough decision to put him down.
Back Paddock reckons a fitting tribute to Bernard would be to name the island after him.
