Along the way I came to have a companion - a Jack Russell - the smartest of all dogs I have ever met.
He came by his name honestly. Einstein was one smart man's best friend! Many a time he was my lone companion as I toiled at the cottage lot, and so he gets a post all to himself.
A faithful companion he was ever so helpful. I mean not in the "holding that board while a cut it", or "steadying the ladder so I don't fall", kind of help.
No, he helped in his own, more useful, canine way, like only Einstein could help.
Like helping to find shade...
Or keeping the ladies entertained...
I'll miss him!
