My Old Cattle Dog --- (Australian Cattle Dog for you amateurs) is getting real old and ugly; his name is 'Chief. I love Chief, he used to run miles-and-miles every day bringing in my milk cows, He LOVES to play 'Frisbee' --- ever seen one of those farm dogs that jump 8 feet in the air to catch anything you are willing to throw???? Well Chief now has a crippled leg, a sad face, won't shed his hair this year --- and is giving me those "longing" eyes just about every minute of his days. Chief is gonna die soon and a big portion of my life is gonna pass with him. Thanks for letting me unload that.
