Thank you everyone. I've always been a lurker on this thread.Sad times but there is another dog out there just waiting for you
We have a second dog. Our son's wife left him, took the cat and chickens and left a miniature Spitze behind. She had demanded the dog and he caved. He always said he'd never have a small dog because he's 195cm and thinks men his height look silly with tiny dogs.
Well, we started doing doggy daycare when he was at work, and when he went to teach at the School we wound up keeping the spoilt bitch.
Mr. Collie got on with her like a house on fire. They were like an old married couple. She was with him when he passed.
