Smudgy was a Border Collie mix who was probably born around 1992. He was wandering the streets of the Toronto suburbs when Cheryl rescued him in 1994. He had been burned with cigarettes, thrown from a car, and who knows what else. It took him a long time to learn to trust people but, after much TLC he became a happy, lovable dog.

Smudgy aged very gracefully. As he became older, the long runs while Cheryl was on her roller blades turned to long walks then shorter walks and finally to sitting in the yard watching the other dogs play. He was the king in his kingdom and quite pleased about it.

Smudgy lived longer than most border collies but finally his body just gave out and he left us for the Rainbow Bridge on August 16, 2006.
