There are no words to describe the emptiness I have felt since losing this great dog and his loss will be carried with me to the end of my days.  Six years was simply not long enough.  I stood Marty at stud for just two years out of the six and in that short period of time he made a tremendous positive impact on his breed.  He consistently produced multiple National and Specialty winners including a
ASSA National Best of Breed son:

Ch Hannalore Home Run, ROM

ASSA National RWB daughter:

BISS Ch Fairwin Westar’s Essence, ROM

I can still see Marty in his descendants of today.

During the last month (2011) of my Dad’s life he kept seeing a sable Sheltie by my side.  On my visits Dad would reach down and snap his fingers and call the dog but the dog obediently remained by my side.  I would tell Dad that I didn’t bring a dog with me on those visits but Dad insisted he could see the dog.  This was prior to Dad being placed on heavy pain meds so there were no hallucinations.

I have lost many dogs over the years but in my heart I have known for quite some time which one follows me around in spirit.
My mind has caught up with my heart and now I know this to be true.
We never loose unconditional love.
Love follows us around forever.
