Ida Walls Page
My Dog Child
by Ida Walls Page  Monday, July 11, 2011

Skye Page born December 29, 1997 : died July 11, 2011. She was the beloved dogchild of Ida Page and the only child left at home. She was a faithful, loving, and constant companion to Ida through the years of school, developing a business and empty nest syndrome. She helped Jessica to learn to walk and tolerated all of the playfulness of all of the Grands. She was a dutiful dog and herded her chickens everyday and would tell me when they needed food or water. I have never known another dog that fully understood English. She played with me, grieved with me,tolerated being ignored for paperwork and meetings. She played with grand-puppies and even played with her little sister Flicka. Skye was a wonderful and understanding friend. She will be missed by all who knew her to be the gentle, well mannered, and intelligent dog that she was.

30 Days Of Truth
Day 11 – Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
I think people seem to compliment me on my sense of humor.
Sometimes people think I’m being funny when I am not intending
to be funny…☺.
I don’t think of myself as funny…but it is okay…better to be thought of
as funny, than mean, depressing or annoying !
