She’s the best puppy in the town
She’ll come when you call ‘er
She’ll get down when you hollar
Callie’s the best puppy in the town.
Our sweet docile Callie died this morning. She was a Sheltie and had just turned seven. Late this Spring we learned that she was suffering from an enlarged heart and despite medication she did not get better. She was a fabulous dog. She would stay in the yard without being fenced in or on a leash, she wasn’t a big barker, she loved us and was loyal and true and a loving friend to all of us. She wasn’t the bravest dog on the block but that was part of her charm. She will be greatly missed by our family.
And yes, that really is a little tune we made up about her long ago (sung to the tune of She’ll be Comin’ Round the Mountain). We have a song for our cat Daisy too (hey what can I say – my brother and his kids made up songs for their pets also – I guess it is a genetic thing) but I’ll save that for another day since today is for Callie. I miss you sweet pup.
