Allie was struck and killed in front of our house last night. She was never very good at looking both ways before running into the road and this time one of Doug’s workers was going too fast to avoid her. The impact broke her back.
Allie was such a nice dog. She was affectionate and always has a big doggie smile on her face. She was great with visitors, never barking or jumping up on them. She loved ‘herding’ the chickens, wearing a path around the chicken yard. We only had her for a short time, but she left a big hole in our hearts.
As we finished burying her, the full moon was just coming up over the trees. There were a few clouds scudding across that face of it. Mary turned around, and said “ Oh, Look. There she goes running across the moon.”
