Ghost Train

**This is only going to be a short story** ~ It's been 4 1/2 months since I lost him. November 29th, 2007. He was 17, almost 18. He was partially blind and a little deaf. He could hear a bit. His name was Brandy. At the time I was 8 years old, so it really upset me to lose my dog. A week after dad came home in March 2008, he said he was recently talking to a friend of his, and he had 2 Shetland sheepdogs for sale but he'd give one to me for free. His name was Walter and his wife's name was Shiloh. We could choose between Jersey, a 7month old and Swish, a 4month old. When we went to get him, we had quite an interesting journey... Read to find out! :)


2. Chapter 2~ Losing my best friend

The day that Brandy passed away, none of us were expecting it.. He was down in the field with me and dad that morning working with Spirit. He was following us around like our shadow, happy to do anything for an ear scratch or a treat, we should've known he was trying to say goodbye. Dad put him outdoors to do his pee or whatever he needed to do, and when mom came home from work about 10 minutes later, we weren't expecting to here what she said...

"Ken! Some things wrong with Brandy!" my mom, Virginia, ran in and said.

"I'm coming!" dad grabbed him jacket next to him and ran outside with her. They told me to stay inside.

I went upstairs to my room and lay on my bed thinking, 'what might happen to him.' I didn't think I'd lose my best friend that night. I somehow fell asleep thinking about him and had wonderful dreams of all the memories I had with him.

I woke up the next morning, this is Sunday now, I walked down stairs to see how brandy was.

"Morning mom, dad, how's Brandy?" I asked. They looked at each other sadly.

Dad bent down to be at eye level with me, "Brandy's gone, honey. He passed away last night."

I had no words to say. The tears started to well up in my eyes and mom and dad just hugged me tightly, crying as well. I only knew Brandy for 7 years, that's how old I am. But mom and dad have had him since he was an 8 week old puppy. I couldn't imagine how they feel.
