A good dog is leaving the world tonight.
Advertisements [?]
I'm not very good at losing animals. Second one this year. Duffy the consummate border collie is fading. I had scheduled a home euthanasia for Thursday, but I don't think he'll last the night. He was a rescue dog who spent two years in a shelter until a family member of mine took him home six years ago. When that family member got a toddler, Duffy came to live with me. About 2 1/2 years ago. He's a fun-loving, extremely GOOD dog. Strong as an ox, always game for whatever people may suggest.

I know the cats will breathe a sigh of relief when the herder is out of their lives. But gee, I'll miss him and his quirky ways.
