Wow! Many of my Rainbow Angel friends barked me awake this morning to the news that I am Dog of the Day!
Despite my passage to the Bridge in June, 2005, my family still talks of me frequently!
I was known as Mother Tyler, for my nurturing qualities and the Stealth Dog, for my ability to steal food from a victim's plate without the person noticing.
As some sort of Mixed Breed, probably shepherd, I had a double coat. This was one of Mom's favorite things to do:
I was quite the shedder, sending off great billowing clouds of white all over the house, or preferable outside.
Mom would brush me while she was waiting for the bus to pick Middle Lad up for school. She would stand in the driveway, brushing me, and great clouds of white would fill the air. When the bus passed, the children on the bus would see me and all that fur flying about and laugh hysterically. At the time, our street was a cul de sac, so the bus would turn back around, and the children would laugh again as they got their second chance to see the great fur clouds.
One Spring, Mom was trimming bushes in front of the house and discovered two bird nests, left from the summer before. Each bird nest was lined white with Tyler fur insulation! (So I nurtured others as well as my family.)
After I was gone, Mom went on to have Mulligan (who has joined me at the bridge) and now has Sophie and Pennie, both of whom actively update their Dogster pages.
