The bag of bone meal and the bottle of fish emulsion no longer need to be locked up in the garden shed. The lizards and grasshoppers are safe from being chased. When I'm travelling to and fro, it no longer matters whether the gate from backyard to frontyard is latched. When I am outside taking care of the garden I look up but don't see my furry companion walking down the stepping stones. I'm going to miss my Andy Dog.
