Our dog Casey is 17 today!
We had John's dog Trooper at the time, and would sadly lose him 2 weeks later. John was selling cars then and told me he couldn't face coming home and not having his dog running up to meet him. Casey, he pointed out, hadn't learned to do that yet. I waited for his car to pull up, then gave Casey this little scooch towards the door when I heard him outside. But I gave her too much of a scooch and she tumbled head over heels. She landed just as John walked in the door, so excited to see Casey having "run" to the door to meet him!
He's always been her favorite, and trusts him completely. They have a great, unique bond, right from the beginning. They used to play this game we called "Bounce". He'd turn her on her back on the bed, then spread his hand over her middle. Then he'd bounce her like a ball! She loved it! As long as he did it....
We've been through a lot together and I pray every year to please give us more with her.
