Remembering an old friend who died many years ago in the spring 1997 at the old age of 14. A collie / shepherd mix she was a one of a kind treasure of a dog. 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. 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. 🙂 We miss you Shilo!
