This was my Laddie, "Mistylain's Celtic Wee Lad, CDX,RE, AX, AXJ, NJP, EJC-JH, EAC-JH, NGC, CGC, BHI, Delta Society Pet Partner".  My once-in-a-lifetime dog.  My heart dog.  The dog who inspired me to start SC Sheltie Rescue.  He changed my life.  He introduced me to the world of positive training, which has led me to my second career of dog training. He was my daughter's loving companion and eased her through those difficult middle school years. There was no need for words, we understood each other, always.  I lost him too soon from bladder cancer when he was nearly 12 years old.  My heart hurts every day from missing him.

I created a video tribute to him at:

"Every once in a while, a dog enters your life and changes everything." RiP my Laddie.
