Please take care to think about your pets, folks. It's hot outside thoughout
most states right now.

Our border collie "Angel" died today. I believe she died of the heat while
outside. She had a very thick black coat and being 16 1/2 years old....
It did not take long for the heat to affect an old pup like her. :(

My wife and I will miss her very much. She was a stray puppy we found just
before our wedding.

Smartest dog I ever had. But lots of health issues later in life. But she
was still happy and mobile.

Sorry for your loss..

My Alex passed 7/2008 still miss her..




Dear Master,

You have been my teacher, my friend and most beloved companion. I was like your child, totally dependent on you for all my needs. But I never grew up and moved away as children do, I just grew to love and need you more each day, each month, each year.
I never went hungry because you gave me dinner and gave me water each day. When the weather was bad I found comfort in the warmth and safety of your home. I delighted you by learning tricks, but what you may not have realized is that I loved learning from you because I lived to please you.
The touch of your hand stroking my fur made my life worthwhile. Though I barked at noises in the night, the postman's footsteps and the ringing of the doorbell; the voice of my master was the one sound that I cherished most. Your moods became my moods. When you were sad or lonely, I nuzzled closer to comfort you .
There were times when you became upset with me because I soiled the carpet, chewed on a piece of furniture, or barked too much. But do not feel bad about those times when you scolded me - I needed to learn right from wrong, and I always understood when things weren't going your way or when you'd had an unpleasant day at work. There is no need for you to harbor guilt or remorse on my behalf.
You loved me and blessed me with more happiness than most animals will ever know. Instead of wondering what you could have done differently, remember the funny things I did and the happy times we shared together. Though it is hard for you to understand, I was ready to pass on from this life.
Our time together was short, but if we'd had fifty years together, you still would have not been ready for me to leave.
So please, Master, share your life with others. Do not refuse the opportunity to give another lucky pet the love you have given me. No other animal will ever take my place in your heart, but there is another one who needs you and will grow to love you as much as I did.
I am now at peace and no longer feel pain. You gave me a wonderful home and a happy existence on this earth. So please be happy - go on with your life and give your love to others.
Although I no longer share your world, I will always live in your heart, and you in mine.
Farewell, Dear Master

Heh Teddy,

sorry for your loss, Border Collies are a special breed, have a friend who had "Lady". My friend says Lady would go sit by the door as I was driving down the street, they knew it was me coming when Lady did that.

Remember the joy you brought each other.
