Tribute to Mac

In one of my past lives I trained stock dogs for a living. It was during this time that I built my first skoolie to travel to field trials. Mac was my first Border Collie. I didn't think there were very many pictures of him. I've been going through all of our old snapshots and found enough to make this tribute to him. The verse I started about 1997 , but wouldn't write the last verse until after he died in 1998. I finally finished editing after using a box of kleenex. He was very special to me.

Dick, always had stock dogs from this guy: 5H Stockdogs

Amazing the bond you get with a working dog. Sadly, I've been in your shoes!!

Great tribute.

lol my dog has a 10x10 kennel. But she needs even more space.
I'm not into crates or keeping animals cooped up.

Buddy goes to work with me, and sleeps in his open crate... It's not for punishment, it's for discipline and his safety. "Get in bed" works very well with him. I refuse to lock him up!

He'll go out to pee many times a day when several of the workers go out to smoke at different intervals. Whole shop loves him!!!

In the bus, he has free range... In my truck, he has free range.

That's cool you and your dog are happy together, man.
My bus landlords just rescued a rare husky that looks like some sort of giant fox. The previous owner kept it in a crate in an apartment. The crate was for a dog buddy's size.The dog was in there so much that the crate was bulged to "fit" the dog. It couldn't stand all the way up or even turn around. The douche who owned it paid $1200 for this dog only to neglect it in his downtown orlando apartment. THe day I meet that previous owner I'm GONNA punch him right in the face.

I've never understood people and their "pets"....
Me & Buddy saw a dog today in a yard on a chain... Maybe 10' at the most, and it probably had an 8 inch ditch dug into the ground in a circle.

Some people don't deserve animals!
If I can't provide for a pet, I don't need a pet!

I have had to come to terms with Buddy's shedding, but with his personality it's been very easy to overcome. (Coming from 12+ years of non-shedding poodles)

I got him on loan from Humane Society on Black Friday until paperwork could be processed on Monday.... His little friend was sure glad to see him on Monday!
It was really hard to walk away from picking up a second dog, but I think it would have been too much to handle.
