Remembering an old friend who died many years ago in the spring 1997 at the old age of 14.Â A collie / shepherd mix she was a one of a kind treasure of a dog.Â She literally saved my life, but that is a story I will tell in another blog at another time.
She was with us through our entire marriage and unfortunately was only around for a short two and one half years after our daughter was born so they barely got to know each other. She was loving, loyal, a true companion and a trusted friend.Â She was always with us on many trips all over the Northwest from the mountains (in bear country) to the sea and she always was a protector and a source of joy! She loved the beach but was not to fond of the water. :)Â We miss you Shilo!
A couple of years after she died I created this video tribute below and posted it to my YouTube channel, “Shilo, With the Dawn”
