         I’ve been fortunate to
      have  had  a  handful  of  good
      dogs throughout my lifetime.
      Some have been good stock
      dogs, while others have sim-
      ply been loyal and loving
      companions. My current best
      friend is Bernie, who would
      have to be described as a so-so
      stock dog, but close to the top
      of the list in the “always-by-
      my-side” dependability rat-
      ing…until last week.
         Bernie has called our
      farm, home, for the past eight
