One of Smoke’s favorite ploys was to start a ruckus or do something like lead the charge to dump over the Christmas tree and then stand there acting like nothing happened. When I would point it out he would look at the other collies like “do you know what he is talking about?” Then he and they would look at me and I would point to what had been done. Then he would look at each of them “did you do it?” and then look at me like “I don’t know how it happened. I had to laugh….. Then Smoke would walk off and take a nap… and smile as he dreamed about his triumph! Good ol’ Smoke…. We love him dearly and miss him. How can a home full of collies seem so empty right now?
I will miss you Smoke…… I don’t understand why you had to leave us so soon….. you were a good boy…. a rascal when you were younger you turned out to be a great Alpha…… RIP my dear Friend and Family member…..
