Kinda Weird

Kearney - It has been kinda weird this last week.  We had two fabulous weekends in a row with Chase and me cleaning up at the herding trials and then Lowri cleaning up at the Knoxville shows.  TM was feeling almost guilty about our successes.  I tried to tell her that with Chase and me, she has worked really, really hard and earned all the rewards, but it took one of TM's clients to ask how this year balances with last year. 

This is a picture of Miss Dora earning her Dual Championship.  You can see she is shaved from all the testing that was done to determine she had lymphoma and to start treating her.  We lost her in March, 2010.  She was six years old.  (Don't tell TM, but while I liked Miss Dora a lot, she could really be a bitch.  I guess it is cause she got sick right after I came to live with TM.)

This is my brother, Angus.  He was in the kitchen (you can see Miss Dora's head behind him).  TM had them locked up while she was cleaning.  My brother always had his head resting on something. 

He was working towards his Dual Championship when he got sick.  TM lost him in June, 2010.  He had only shown symptoms for 9 days before she lost him.  He was four years old.

Fortunately, TM had me, PR and MC.  We were able give her lots of love.  Then Lowri joined us in February. 

I think it is kinda weird that really big successes can suddenly make you sad.  People are strange.  It is much better to be a dog.  We enjoy life and stay happy.

This is Lowri and me from earlier this year.  Looking at us makes TM smile. 


  1. I'm so glad that TM has you two to help her heart heal!

  2. You know Kearney, before Nicky came to live with us, my father went to the Rainbow Bridge. It was a really hard, sad time. Nicky brought a lot of the joy back into my life - he and Rufus are so loving and sweet that it's hard to be sad. There will always be a sad spot in my heart, but I have to remember that my dad is in a much better place! Good for you and Lowri for helping keep TM in smiles!
