Where Good Dogs Are Buried
For if the dog be well remembered,
if sometimes he leaps through your dreams actual as in life,
eyes kindling, laughing, begging,
it matters not where the dog sleeps.
On a hill where the wind is unrebuked and the trees are roaring,
or beside a stream he knew in puppyhood,
or somewhere in the flatness of a land where most exhilarating
It is one to the dog, and all one to you,
and nothing is gained and nothing is lost--if memory lives.
But there is one best place to bury a dog.
If you bury him in this spot he will come to you when you call---
come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death,
and down the well remembered path to your side again.
And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel they shall not growl
nor resent him coming, for he belongs there.
People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by
who hear no whimper, people who may never really have had a dog.
Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from
The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master!

Justin was a producer of Champion,
Obedience, Agility & Flyball Titled Offspring
Justin will always live very deep
within our hearts. His sire ASCA Ch Hisaws Justin Roper ("Roper" -
#5 Conformation Dog in 1995-96) was our very first Australian Shepherd. Unfortunately
Roper passed away at a very young age. Justin had all the same qualities about him that
his Dad had...he was ready to hop in that van and go to the next show, or just hang out with
us and play ball. Justin gave true meaning to the words "best friend"!!
Justin won "1st" in the
Open Blue Merle Dog Class at the 2000 AKC National Speciality over a class entry of 30
dogs under AKC Judge Dr. Harry Smith!
