This is Gryffon, my first bi-black Sheltie. He was a ball hound, just an absolute fanatic about them. He also loved water but didn't like to swim. From the first time I saw him, he was mine.
But I lost Gryffon at just 7 and half years old. He had been treated for a gastrointestinal infection, bladder stones, ulcers but it turned out after exploratory surgery that he had an abdominal wall infection. He survived the surgery but not the post operation period.
Gryffon was very shy with people but of all my dogs, I always thought he was the one who would have protected me. After he passed, this song There's a Hero by Billy Gilman became Gryffon's song.
I'm sure Gryffon was hero, even if he didn't show that to most people.
