Default Good Old Hitch

Hitch will be 10 soon (2 months is soon to me) and he is just as lively as the first day he came into my life. I hate to retire him this year but I don't want to burn him out. He is getting neutered in 2 weeks and then he will be retired from breeding as well (I hope i hope I hope POe turns out to be breeding worthy). He hasent be doing to many runs lately as i want to transition him out of it.

Anyways this afternoon I was laying on the couch after both runs and just relaxing before I had to start getting things together for their lunch. Pakak has transitioned to the barn which he did well and he still spends alot of time in the house but he is just so big and he enjoys his outdoor time more. And Poe has been being kept outside in the barn kennels with his mum since he was 10 weeks. Anyways to the point I moved Hitch inside so he can live out his years sleeping on beds instead of sawdust and straw.

To my point lol I was laying there starting to fall asleep when I felt weight on the couch and then paws and a head on my chest. I opened my eyes to see Hitch he was laying/standing there just staring off into space with heavy eyes. I started to pet his head and he started to make his happy moan. He then pulled his paws down and just sat there next to the couch looking at me with just love in his eyes and wagging his tail.

I just love that dog its like I can read his mind and he can read mine. He often reminds me of Tosser ( Tosser is his uncle) in so many ways i often wonder if Tosser just took over his body. He is my Partner in everything sleddog and we have had many memories not all pleasent from the trail i will never forget. Though Hitch is now retired and no longer a "working dog" I will never let him feel useless. And I hope to have atleast 6 more years with this wonderful dog .

Why is it, allmost everytime, when you do a post of one of your dogs I get a great big grin?

Hitch sounds like he's going to enjoy being your companion indoors now enjoying his life inside.

It was so nice of you to bring Hitch inside as I'm sure he will enjoy all the attention you will be giving him now that he is retired. Your story was very touching and I too understand how dogs can read your eyes. I recently lost my 11-yr old Australian Shepherd (Partner) which was one of my 5 dogs and they all definitely have eye contact and sometimes seem to read your mind without speaking. Partner was 75lbs and would always have always have to have a big hug from me when I came home and each time before he was let out of the house along with the others, he would stop while they others ran out just for his hug and would actually jump up to give me a very tight hug if I did not immediately lean down to give him one. I miss him terribly and would just like to say "give Hitch lots of hugs and enjoy every moment with him".

Yes he is a sweet boy and he is so great inside it seems he's not sure which room he can cannot go in (He's welcome anywhere as my other dogs are). Such a sweet soul.

I don't know who I love more, Pits, you or your dogs - but you and your dogs are so much one spirit that I guess it doesn't matter
