I have an admirer, Far Side says I actually have a bunch of admirers..how lucky can one Border Collie be anyway? I have a admirer named "Sarah" who would love it if I came to live with her. Far Side and Far Guy are just not willing to part with me, the other day when I rolled in some fresh deer poop and turned partially green might have been a good time to go visit. I bet Sarah wouldn’t mind a bit. It is nice to know I have some Minnesota friends!
I got mail, from Danville, IL. from Rae. Far Side says that Rae is a special lady whose best four legged friend, Piper went to the rainbow bridge last month. It was a very, very sad time for Rae..but she is feeling a bit better now and went shopping for ME! Rae sent me a package, she said " A dog can never have enough balls! "
I am living proof that there can be happiness after a great loss. You see I followed the mourning that went on around here for three long lonely years after "Captain" died. Far Side felt like her heart had been ripped out and stomped on..she feels a whole lot better now…because of me. She will always have a special place in her heart for all her friends at the rainbow bridge, and someday I will have to go and leave her and Far Guy alone..they knew when they picked me out ( when I picked out Far Guy) that they would probably live much longer than me.
Today, they will throw my ball and I will run and chase it with wild abandon and then plop into my pool and run over to them and shake water droplets all over them..and they will smile. No one is guaranteed a tomorow, not a dog, and not a human either:)
