Goodbye Smoke

Our cyber-paw pal Chuck's collie Smoke crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, 17 August.  Smoke was only 8½ years old.  Dog Dad told me the ones that cross the bridge young make one very sad. 

From the stories we've read about Smoke, he was a character.   The fact that Smoke was such a character reminded Dog Dad a lot of Uncle Deacon.  If you want to say a kind word or two, click the following hyper-link, Collies of The Meadow.  The link will take you to post about remembering Smoke.  
Smoke - You Will Be Missed By Your Pack
We can imagine Smoke and Uncle Deacon romping around in the fields across the Rainbow Bridge.  Both of them with having one of those strange Collie grins.  The ones where you know they were up to something, but can't quite figure out what.

Dog Speed Smoke,

Sherman & Dog Dad

Sorry about Smoke :-( I can see why he was named Smoke after looking at his coat. I hope we can see our animals in Heaven when we get would be so very cool to have a big sparkling condo on a street of gold with our animals waiting for us in the window :-)

I'm sorry to hear about Smoke. Seems way too young even for a bigger dog.
