My mom is watching all 4 dogs today. She sent me a message and just had to share with me what just happened.
Backgroud: My blue heeler is the Alpha female, and she is the smallest. She has arthritis, and she doesn't move so fast much anymore. She will wander off with the other 3, and it takes her a while to come back.
All 4 dogs were down at the front gate. They decided to come back up to the house. My mom was watching from the window. Bo and Precious just trotted back side by side, just like they always do. Luke proceeded to follow after them, then he stopped, turned around, and noticed that Sassy wasn't coming as fast. He waited for her to catch up, then walked right next to her the whole way back up to the house.
Now according to my mom, "He may not have been the 'chosen one', but he is the best one" in her opinion.
Bo does have his good points, but Luke is just a really kind dog. It just makes me tear up.
Luke you are special...
What a sweetheart.
Murphy, Riley, and Piper
what a kind doggie you have there.
oh how sweet!
And it just dawned on me that Luke and Sassy have become really good buddies recently. He has been sleeping next to her a lot. (see siggy pic for proof.) I plan to give him a big :-* when I get home.
Awww. how sweet!
his true soul is coming out .....what a sweet sweet boy
Awwww good boy Luke :-*
