Happy 50th Dody

Happy 50th birthday to my childhood pet Dody. She was a Border Collie mix.

Dody was my constant companion for 16 years. She followed me everywhere I went, playing, and school, everywhere.

Dody and my father were best of friends when I wasn’t around.

I got her at age five after my father felt sorry for me for trying to get my cat to act like a dog. We parted when I went off to college.

Dody was another great role model in my life.

Awwww. I loved our Doty. She was the first really "good dog" I ever knew. She was smart and obeyed if she was able to understand what you wanted from her. I always remember if Mama or Daddy let her out real early in the morning they would say "don't bark" and she wouldn't. Otherwise she greeted out doors with a loud bark.

Yeah Dody did have that signature "hello world!" bark unless she was instructed otherwise.

I still have the sketch of Dody you did Judy. The one that was on Daddy's desk so many years.

She was so very cute too! Clearly you were very close to her. And you've gone on to allow other dogs to hold a place in your heart. This is something I've not yet reconciled myself. I keep wanting for another dog, but can't seem to bring myself to "replace" Shelby yet. I'm getting close though!
