LAD - ISDS 201994
7 / 2-2008: It is with sadness that today I had to say the last goodbye to old Lad.
After many years of good work, he moved to Thea, where he spent his last 7 years as a pensioner. The last time he suffered a bit of arthritis in his legs but there was still a twinkle in his eye if he came with me out to the sheep.
The last 3 days he had to be helped to get up to stand, and since I have always had the attitude that dogs should not be kept unnecessarily alive with an unworthy treatment, the decision to give him peace was made today.
I owe Thea many thanks for taking care of him over the years. He will be missed by both of us.
Born May 18th. -1992
LAD was my first dog and will forever be remembered as something very special. It was with him by my side that I started my shepherd dog career and he has patiently put up with my mistakes and mistakes as a novice shepherd.
He was both clever and strong, and could move both sheep and cattle.
