You were always with us, everywhere we went. Then one day you got tired, very tired and in 2 days your were gone. We will always miss you and your bark of happiness to see us, hear our car drive up. You wouldn’t stop barking until a formal greeting and acknowledgement that you were there and loved, was done. You loved floating (not swimming) in our above ground pool! You really scared us the first time you climbed up the platform and jumped on a floatie all by yourself. (as a puppy) We had to get in the pool and make sure you knew how to swim to the steps. Hemangiosarcoma took you from us. A word we had never heard of in the previous 5 shelties we have had in over 40 years. All of them lived out their life to life expectancy. We guess you were special and it was time.
