RIP Sir Joey Whiteflint

It just doesn’t seem the same around here.  Our good dog, friend and fellow goatherd Joey has passed away. 

It happened a couple of weeks ago.  I’d noticed that he appeared to be unusually sluggish for a couple of mornings, but (having heard him barking during the night) I just assumed he was tired.  But on Sunday morning he had little energy and I knew he was sick.  I was still hoping it wasn’t anything serious.  But within a few hours he was gone.

Joey walked over the waterer and laid down.  All around him were the goats he’s protected for years, on a day we had lots of kids being born.  He died comfortably, among his friends.

He will be greatly missed.
