But, I am lamenting the loss of a wonderful companion, friend and team mate.
Cobalt died this week due to poisoning from a toad.
It all happened very quickly, in less than an hour, after an encounter with a toad in her area.
It was her curious/playful nature to try and get the toad close to her that brought her into contact with it.
My greatest weakness is that I become too emotionally attached to my canine family. It is for that reason, that I find their passing so difficult.
Cobalt was very unique in her way of communicating with me.
It wasn't a bark, nor a howl but a rather an unusual way of her talking, more like a squawk.
She was always watching the patio/glass door in the chalet and would always talk to me when I would pass it.
She would be the first to greet me in the morning and the last in the evening at bed time.
She was a genital soul who loved to run, especially at Lead.
We spent many hours together with me sitting on top of her house petting her.
It was always a game that I would try to stroke her feet and she would retract them under her body so I couldn't tickle them.
Cobalt, I miss you my sweet, little girl.
Until we meet again........
