I just lost my best mate

 At just three years old we have lost Millie our working sheepdog, and companion. We had Millie as a pup and spent two years training her and she has been my constant companion in almost anything I have done for the past three and a half years.
She would do anything for me ,always was keen to please and never let me down.

Millie was gathering sheep with her usual enthusiasm and style. When and rounded a bush out of sight and must have ran into a sharp branch or similar, she damaged her skull and the vet thinks she had a brain haemorrhage. She some how managed to get back to me but collapsed at my feet. She never stood again. Millie died in my arms on the way to the vet.
We are left with a huge Millie shaped hole in our lives. Some say you only get one really good dog  in your life, if that's the case I've just had mine.
