    Lost my old pal Jake over the weekend. He was the last of the buddies I brought with me from NC.

    He was my best bud for almost 15yrs.

    A working Border Collie that loved to work and was a great house pet to boot. Got him at 10 months when his owner decided he didn't want him anymore.

    He spent the first 10 months of his life in a dogpen out back. Guy didn't need a dog. A cement lawn ornament would have been better.

    Jake turned into a great trial dog and was super on the sheep.

    He is greatly missed and always will be. One grand dog.

    So sorry to hear that Claudette. It's so sad to loose a pet, especially when they're part of the family!

    We have a 17 yr old wire-haired dachshund/terrior mix we got at the pound when he was only about a year old. He's not doing too well right now :(. We expect him to go just about any time, he's my husbands best bud.

    RIP, Jake. When my neighbor got a new puppy, and brought it over for a visit, I asked what breed. He proudly announced it was a "borderline collie."

    :(

    That's the third pet lost from someone on here within the week.

    It's so hard when it's their time to go . . . . .
