10 good things about Mac

There is a children's book, it is suppose to help a child cope with grief- it's really very good- not maudlin at all. And I woke up with the line of that book in my head. The title is " Ten Good Things about Charlie"
So here are ten good things about Mac
1. He had soft floppy ears,softer than silk.
2. He had a brave heart.
3.He knew twenty different words and could tell Baby from Hedgehog and would bring you which toy you asked for.
4. He knew all kinds of tricks- from the Vietnam crawl to Bang-play dead.
5. He was a beautiful black and white with pink feet
6. He was an excellent guard dog- too good sometimes.
7. He would ask for a bath-he liked to go into our walk in shower for his bi-weekly scrubbing.
8. He didn't bark at just anything-he always had a reason.
9. People would point at us when we drove past in the truck- his big head and my small one in the front seat. 
10.He was my dog... always.

I'm sorry for your loss of Mac. I lost my horse, Beauty, this summer and I still cry for her. Maybe I'll do a post 10 good things about Beauty someday. You have my sympathy and prayers. I know what you are going through.
