She wasn't any thing special to look at, all though she showed good form, a first cross springer/labrador, purchased some 10 years or more ago, a fluke mating of two class gun dogs. we first met when she was six weeks old, she approached me, undid my boot laces and I fell for her. We have been friends, unseperable friends since that day. Until today, today she died, and I am, well I don't know how I feel, glad she's not suffering any more, but sad that I will not enjoy her company again. She was the best gundog you could have wished for, never will another come close to being such a loyal friend, I have fond memories, but that won't bring her back, I have a young bitch from a litter five years since, but Fluke was Fluke, and if you knew her you would understand, she was outstanding.
She's gone now, I will miss her, shooting without her will never be the same, but she's gone.
My best friend has gone and I feel alone.
A wee dram, to say thanks to her and goodbye, see you in the here after girl, I loved you.
