Our almost 16-year old dog, Merlin, passed away on Monday, the 8th. He was a quirky dog, smart, grumpy, and did his best to keep us all herded together, like a good herding dog. He was half Labrador, and half Queensland Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog), and his coat was a gorgeous ‘red merle’ of rusty orange and white splotched and speckles.
This is my favorite photo of him, just sitting there happily, with his tongue hanging out.
It took us a number of years to get him out of his ‘snipping’ phase but in his later years we turned him into a real mush.Â 🙂
See you on the other side, Merlin!
