Laddie: 1983-1999

I know that all of you who knew our dog, Laddie, were saddened to hear that he passed away in the summer of ’99. As a registered Border Collie, he was bred for heart and courage as well as the working ability of herding sheep. He would put his herding instincts to use when going out with a group of skiers. During the summer, he would herd the campers, especially when they were playing volleyball or soccer. His heart and courage were apparent to everyone throughout the entire year. He was a very gentle, patient dog and especially good with children. The following sentiment, taken from a poster size card given to us by the Spanish campers, sums up our feelings quite well: “I am very sorry about Laddie. The good thing is, he lived a long and happy life.” Yes, he certainly did.
