When we got a new sheep dog, we had no idea what an impact it would have on our lives. Sheep dogs have always been a part of my life and lifestyle; they have all been a pleasure to own, but this one, well, this one was different. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not a soppy person, but to say I was proud of him would be an understatement.
What is more fun than being able to go and pick out a new puppy? It’s heaven for a dog lover. It’s exiting and sometimes I wonder who chooses who in fact. 😉
Having a dog is just wonderful. How you can teach him things and communicate with him brings joy every day.
In this book the author tells the story through the eyes of Traigh. It’s about his life with his humans. The humans are certain they are the ones being in command but I think dogs have us trained as well. We teach them how to make us see that they have to go outside for example, but as soon as they give us the sign, we jump up to open the door. LOL. It’s something that I only realized while reading this book.
I recognized certain situations in my own dog’s behavior. The look in his eyes when I make a joke and I am convinced that I see him thinking: ‘What on earth are you talking about’. 🙂
Spending time with your dog is golden, but there are also sad moments. My previous dog died almost 15 months ago and it still hurts. I have a new one now and I love him to bits, but you never forget the other one(s).
This is a great story that warmed and broke my heart at the same time. 5 stars
