I've four of the greatest dogs I've ever owned at the moment.
six years old,
sensitive and tough.
Five years old,
Prick eared and always reliable.
maybe a bit sticky eyed,
knows her lines,
She'd gather sheep through an artillery range,
Sharps the word and quick's the action.
three years old,
head strong and brilliant.
Three years old,
The vet described the cause of her blindness as a massive bacterial infection,
That caused her ocular nerves to swell,
and to her guessing,
made her blind within a few hours.
named after the patron saint of ocular diseases....
Is now forever blind.
She is my greatest sorrow...
and still my greatest joy.
