Over at Bite the Apple Moi has a nice pictorial from this week's Mute Monday from a trip she took on the Missouri River. There is a statue of a dog. That dog is Old Shep. I was going to try to tell the story but thought I'd just post this link that does a great job of telling the story.
All of my Montana followers are familiar with the story as Old Shep is a legend but those of you who don't live here need to take a minute and read this great story. Its short, but get the tissues close by. This is the reason that if there aren't dogs in Heaven, there should be.
Thanks to Moi for her post that gave me this idea.
