Our pup Smitty
Sebago, Dave, & Smitty. (who was on the 1st BBO)
I am sad to post that a member of our family has passed away. Smitty my 12 year old Shepard died last Sunday. He was sick with cancer and died outside under a tree. I knew he was sick but couldn't do anything for him other than sit with him outside and pat his head. I don't think he was in any pain. I was extremely sad about it and am still sad now that I am writing this because he was a big part of this family.
Smitty left behind his sister, Sebago. The other dogs play with her more, I think they know she lost her friend. If you have tears, sorry, so do I! I didn't want this to be sad so I am going to tell a funny Smitty story!
Smity loved to swim!
When we first bought this building it was, um to be nice, not very nice! There were wild cats everywhere and a wild rooster. The guys next door in the body shop fed this rooster. It even had a name, Darryl. He had a mirror on the fence so he could look at himself and think he had a friend.
One day Smitty came over and we were walking out back and Smitty met Darryl, or should I say Darryl met Smitty!! Instantly Smitty went flying after him and of course I go flying after Smitty. It must have look so funny to see Smitty chasing the rooster and me chasing Smitty. I finally got him but not before he took a bite of Darryl. The rooster ran away so I figured he was alright even though Smitty had a mouth full of feathers!
Swimming down the cape.
The next day I came over and saw the rooster by the mirror and though oh he looks fine. When ever he turned around I almost fell over. His entire butt was bald!! It looked like raw chicken from the grocery store!
From then on we said, "What's for supper tonight, Smitty's Delight".
Smitty was a good dog and we all loved him, now he will get to chase all the chickens he wants!
