Today my family sadly said good-bye to our beloved dog, Aussie.
I have many great Aussie memories. She was my barn dog while I taught horseback riding lessons. Aussie was a natural herder and kept the horses in line when the kids were out in the pasture catching them. She also took more than a few hooves to the head preventing my students and I from being squashed by stampeding horses. She was always protective. After I sold my horses, Aussie retired from farm work to become what I like to call a “cabin dog.”
She loved to go for walks in the woods, a dip in the lake and fetch her stick. Since I believe in doggie Heaven, I know she’s doing all her favorite things.
Aussie, you will be missed.
