I got a terribly sad email this morning. One of my dearest and oldest friends - Angus - died in his sleep last night. He was the sheltie to Andrew's collie. They were a beautiful couple to behold and they reigned court over Point Pleasant Park at 12pm and 4pm for many years with their Dad Glenn. I was blessed to share some of their walking time for a couple of years with Charlie and his sister Leonard, and we learned a lot during that time, and we got to meet a lot of great people - but we also got to get to know a couple of super dogs.
Andrew left Angus in 2006 - but Angus soldiered on without him until last night. I wrote up a little something for Andrew when he passed in 2006 and there's some more photos of them together in that post at http://dogkisser.blogspot.com/2006/06/passing-of-very-special-animal.html
Glenn took exceptional care of his animals to be able to share his life with them for that long - he's a lucky guy when you look at it from certain angles - but losing an animal is never easy - I hope there is a place where Angus and Andrew are together again, that would be sweet.
