Here is my brother, Angus Fala (2001-2015), back from this very week 12 years ago. March 2003. Here Angus, not quite 2 years old, is with the canine love of his life, his Golden Retriever sister, Lady (1993-2008). Angus was so close to Lady that it took Lady’s death for Mama to realize how attached Angus was to Lady. The first thunder storm that rolled through after Lady died, tough little Angus was terrified and hung next to Mama. It suddenly dawned on Mama that was why Angus was always next to Lady during storms.
You can tell in this picture that Angus was a less dominating with Lady than Angus was ever to me. Hoomans don’t remember the exact circumstances of this pic, but imagine that they were probably holding a tennis ball. Lady, being a retriever, was always a good ball retriever. But Angus was even more ball obsessed. A fact that irritated Lady – because Angus could chase balls literally all day long. Lady would quit after a dozen throws or so.
Hope you enjoy my post today. I’m sorry for the wistful memory of a lonely sister. Ainsley
