We bought her as a pup. Her owner was headed for China. His girlfriend gave her to him. She already had a name. Oreo. Sometimes I used to think he moved to China just to get away from her- the dog. She came with a crate and a pre-paid obedience course. She needed the training. She still does.
That was more than fourteen years ago. We grew old together. She got older faster. Dog years and all of that. We stopped by the vet's office today. It's time to know where we're headed.
Looks like I'm going to be digging a hole in the backyard. Time to start getting ready. A Dalmatian will need a petty good size hole. I'll have plenty of time to think and remember and prepare.
I'm going to have some growing to do.
