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! :)


4. Chapter 4~ A BIG Surprise!

The next few weeks were really hard for all of us. We didn't really do much, we just tried to keep occupied so we wouldn't think about Brandy. Christmas was especially hard this year. I didn't ask for anything only for Brandy to be back, happy and healthy..

January 2nd is when dad went away to Alberta to work for the Winter until March. He works on the oil rigs. He was on rig 27 that year. 

My dream dog since I was 4 or 5 years old was a Shetland Sheepdog. I loved the sable colored ones(tan with white markings and black swished through). I thought they were the most beautiful dogs I've ever seen! Well besides Brandy that is. So, when dad came home a little over 2 months later on March 5th, he said we were going to Windy Meadows Kennels in Branch, Newfoundland to pick up a Shetland Sheepdog puppy!!
