Our Dog Hunter
You were so unlike your name - one of the gentlest dogs that ever was. And one of the most handsome. You made a person feel so wanted, as if they were the only one in the world for you. Men could learn a thing or too from you.
Sometimes I would stare at you in wonder. Was this big daft dog the tiny puppy that came home one day. Yes, you were a little daft. But so were all of us, and that is why we miss your daftness so much. I hope you are in doggy heaven.
