CBS ran a story that was so heartwarming. It was about Ashapoo the family dog, also a border collie, who decided he needed to stay glued to Peyton, the 2-year-old grandson of Ashapoo's owner. I can just see it, the little boy running around and Ashapoo following right after him, guarding him. When Peyton wandered away while his grandfather had his back turned for a minute, he already had a built in protector, in Ashapoo.
4 1/2 hours later, they found Peyton curled up asleep in a barn. How did they find him? Ashapoo approached the search team and ran away barking toward the barn, leading them to the child. He had been with him the whole time, just watching him and making sure he was OK. When I hear stories like this, I give Evee an extra treat and an extra pat. I have to wonder how my life would be without her.
