My beloved Mini Australian Shepherd is MISSING, since Dec. 18! We don't know if he is still lost alone, or more probably someone has kept him! Keep your eyes peeled for him EVERYWHERE, with someone.
He is Small, 17 lbs, has 2 Brown Eyes and a Full Fluffy Tail (white-ish color). He is a Blue Merle, which means mottled Black and White, wih Brown only in his face and back legs.
This weekend was absolutely beautiful - but still a little cold. We took our gal to the river in North Vancouver on Saturday - so many dogs were out with their human parents - running around, sticks in mouths, tails wagging!
There is something about the water that makes our gal positively wired - she runs in circles and barks and can't wait to immerse herself - she doesn't seem to notice how cold the water still is. She is mesmerized by all the rocks, and sticks, and trees, and smells in the air. She could stay at the river all day if we let her.
Today we headed over to Queen Elizabeth Park for a romp around the trees. We are blessed with so many beautiful parks in Vancouver ... so it was a good day with our dog, lots of sun, and the chill in the soon to be spring air. Have a good week!
This is Elsa and I last summer - she loves giving kisses - We've had the pleasure of walking Elsa since she found her forever family a little over 18 months ago. When I said goodbye to her on Thursday after our walk, I would never have thought it was going to be the last time I was going to see this beautiful soul.
I was sitting at our kitchen table with my partner mid-day on Sunday - our gal Indy was outside enjoying the sun ... nose in the air, taking in all the smells of the coming spring when our phone rang.
I answered it immediately - upon hearing the news, my heart sank, and tears started rolling down my face. Elsa's parents had to make the brave decision that all of us who love our dogs, cats, and critters, dread, but know that it is inevitable. What we don't expect, ever, is that this heartbreaking decision is made when our loved one is only two years old.
For Elsa's brief life, she was surrounded by so much love, kindness and consistency ... she had the best human parents any dog could ask for. I am grateful that I got to share part of Elsa's life with her and get to know her human parents. As a dog walker, especially because I focus on one-on-one dog walking, there is lots of talking and attention - I get to know each of my doggy clients individually and love them all so much ... so when we lose one, a little piece of me goes with them.
Rest in peace sweet girl ... I wish you an unending supply of carrots and celery and pools and beaches and lots of other doggy friends to play with.
