Cara Gets the Paper for Daddy Every Morning

Hi everyone,
As I have written, I lost my Cara in July. There is a tribute to her in the Rainbow Bridge thread. But....I just remembered that I had posted on Youtube a video in 2013 of Cara going down to the edge of the driveway to get the paper for me every morning. I had trained Cara that she could never, never cross the barrier from the driveway onto the beginning of the road unless I was there and said 'Okay'. The paper would always land just where she could get it or perhaps...she would have to stick a paw out (after looking both ways for cars).. to drag it to the 'safe zone' and then carry it back into the house You can just click on the link below or put it in your will take you to the short video.

That is so cute. She looks so pleased with herself. Lovely to have these memories on video.

That's so cute, to bring it back all in one piece!. Barnaby would have shredded it....
