We enjoyed my baby brother and his bride's dog all summer. Stiney was a frequent visitor when they went hiking the trails...he had his own water dish and knew right where to find it under our patio table. Stiney would run the perimeter of our yard...his nose collecting all the news. Here and there would be a flash of the little black dog. Sometimes on his rounds after a drink he would come over to get his back scratched...he knew I was always game. After another round or two he would settle happily down for a short rest.
He was a frequent visitor on our trail cameras.
Here Stiney is held safely in Beth's arms getting a ride back home. Stiney had good days and some bad days all summer....old age and liver problems.
Earlier this month Stiney appeared on the trail camera...he was looking for my baby brother. Shortly after this they all went to Oregon for a visit...sadly yesterday Stiney went to the Rainbow Bridge. ( I think the Rainbow Bridge might be a bit like Minnesota for Stiney as he loved it here.)
My baby brother and his bride will miss this little black dog very much. Me too.
