This week we lost Helen – our dear old German Shepherd cross.  She was a wonderful, gentle soul – sadly abandoned at the local pound in her old age when my husband found her.


She lived with us for the last 18 months of her life.  During that time, she enjoyed therapeutic massages at the vet for her arthritis – which were miraculous in easing her pain and increasing her mobility (she actually ran from time to time!)

Helen loved roaming around the Cat Ranch, and especially seemed to enjoy snowy, cold weather – with her thick fur, she often found it very warm indoors.  I took this photo last November, we were out for less than 10 minutes before she was covered in snow.



Helen also enjoyed being the ‘boss dog’ in charge of all the little ones – though you’d never guess it from this photo below (given that the little ones are in her bed, again!)  Being a gentle spirit – she was a benevolent dictator. (I also think she found it cooler on the bare floor. )

Les brought this big dog bed home for Helen – our aging German Shepherd cross – but as you can see, she gets the hard floor while the younger pups hog the bed.  Penny the Poodle would rather have it to herself, but little Piglet never lets Penny go anywhere alone.

And… as soon as the young pups vacate the bed, little Buddy moves in for his turn…

If she ever actually gets a turn, I’ll post one of Helen using her own bed. 😉
