"To call him
a dog hardly seems to do him justice,
Though in as much as he had four legs, a tail, and barked,
I admit he was, to all outward appearances.
But to those of us who knew him well, he was a perfect gentleman."
Gingold [1897 - 1987]
The Assiniboine Chief Grey Wolf,
was rewarded for his valour by being called to the hunting grounds of the
gods. He set out toward the setting sun with his wife and sons and
his dog. The trail was difficult, and one by one his sons fell behind.
Finally his wife stumbled and fell, returning to find her sons.
Grey Wolf continued to the call of the gods, followed by his faithful dog.
When he arrived at the hunting ground
of the gods, the Great Spirit asked "Where is your family ?"
Grey Wolf said " They had tired and fallen asleep on the way."
" Who is the little shadow following you ?" asked the Great Spirit.
" It is my dog, and he has never left my side." answered Grey Wolf.
" Let Him enter "
said the Great Spirit, " for he has earned
his place, and a place for all of His Tribe, in the Land of Shadows."
Our alarm clock,
Our best friend ...
Our sweet dog
will be missed
in so many ways ...
