She never once put a foot wrong
in almost 17 years....even stealing the Christmas meat (twice) seemed more of an amusing escapade than a annoyance (especially after a dunk under the tap and cutting off the chewed bits - no-one was any wiser).....but now she is gone. Lila, my lovely, gentle, brilliant collie. We are taking her to the woods tomorrow, to bury her and will be looking for a special tree over the summer. Heartbroken.
