I had a rough night. I dreamed about Ginger, and the whole dream was about me protecting her from various dangers. I woke up sobbing. Gut wrenching sobbing. I can just feel her in my arms, and smell her. All of it. I am crying again as I type this. I miss her so much. Some people probably would not understand my connection to my animals, and it is true, some animals you are connected to more than others. Ginger was one. Through it all with me for so many years. I did not mind taking extra care of her in her senior years, and I felt it my duty. I miss you so much Ginger. I am glad you came to me last night in my dreams, love you and miss you.
What was interesting to me this morning, was this video that popped up in my queue
I cried all over again. All this talk these days about breeding in sheep dogs, and good trial dogs and God knows what else, we never talk about their loyalty, and devotion. It is their BEST attribute- I do not CARE how many trials they win, or how many nice dogs that are produced by them. I care that these dogs will risk their lives for us, and are loyal until the end, and we should be too.
