Lost a friend last night. *Blue* 15 years 7 months.
He was an Australian Shepard we got as a runt at 8 weeks old.
He was a great companion and enjoyed being with the family, no matter what we did. When he was younger He went everywhere. In the summer he'd ride in the boat all day, and the winter it was in the desert riding in the truck. He was a trooper and up for anything we did as long as he was with us.
The wife works out of the house, and as he got older and more mature he became her buddy, He became an inside dog, and they fell into a rhythm , learning each others patterns. Being there for each other. The bond with her became very close over the last few years. It's been great to see them together.
Old age had caught up with him, his bright eyes showing age, the sharp contrast in his coat now shadowed with grey, his footing not as sure.
vaya con dios Blue.

Added a pic of the same two many years ago. They really were buddies till the end.
I hate to start this dog thread too, but we have to remember our companions that are no longer with us.
Stingray, Im sorry you had to be the leader for this, and I wish you and your family peace in your loss. I hope he went without pain.
Ive had humans betray me all my life, but never a dog. I guess thats why I am such a dog lover.
