This pic does her justice because it shows her dirty tongue from carrying sticks! So happy, so forgiving. Just what a good dog is. She could push my buttons! From being a little pup she had the Chessie attitude and it continued to her adulthood. Obstinate! Oh, yeah! As much as I had to admonish her for various misdeeds, she never held a grudge, never pouted, and was always ready to just throw a stick in my way so I could throw it for her.
Our neighbor lost their springer spaniel just before Christmas and it colored the whole season. It took until spring to unlock that mystery. All the time of wondering, hoping, PRAYING, before she was found along the shore of the Mississippi not a mile from home. Now our neighbor grieves with us over our loss. That's friendship over the lives of these four-legged wonders.
Our new best friend has yet to be born. She will come from Red Branch Kennel in Wisconsin Rapids. We will anxiously await the birth of the next Catfish Corner Andy's_______. Haven't got a name yet!
Something nordic and simple that can carry by voice over the creek that she will love to swim.
