Vera was a lovely girl! Social, friendly and pretty calm to be a kelpie… She loved playing with toys and chasing balls. We mainly trainied obedience. Vera passed the swedish caracter test MH in June 2012 and the finnish BH-test in 2014. She was hip scored A, elbows 0.
Unfortunately Vera was sick for a long time, without us knowing why. It was confirmed that she suffered from anaplasmos (ehrlichia) and she was on antibiotics and painkillers. Vera was put to sleep 7.11.2014.
We miss her so much and she will forever be in our hearts.
We have a secret, you and I
that no one else shall know,
for who but I can see you lie
each night in fire glow?
And who but I can reach my hand
before we go to bed
and feel the living warmth of you
and touch your silken head?
And only I walk woodland paths
and see ahead of me,
your small form racing with the wind
so young again, and free.
And only I can see you swim
in every brook I pass
and when I call, no one but I
can see the bending grass.
