When I was a girl, I loved "Lassie's" series♡♡♡
When I was having fertility treatment around 30 years ago, this furry baby was the one comforted me mentally. He was a surprise present from my husband. He knew I loved the Lassie; coincidentally, Sheltie was popular at that time and my husband thought medium-sized one was proper to have as we can have them outside and not too big for me to walk with.
He told me he had an appointment one Sunday and came back with the baby dog. Haha, I thought he looked different form Lassie when I saw him at first. Well, he only had about 5 years of life. He died of filaria. Only if we knew about the vaccination then. It was right after I gave up the treatment which lasted over 5 years. His name was Tony; named after the astronaut from the tv drama "I Dream of Jeannie" I loved when young p;)
Everyday my husband came home, he let me know barking a couple of minutes before his car comes into the garage. Tony could distinguish sounds of our car but it was the only trouble we had with him thinking about the neighborhood.
