Patches was a working dog who left her mark on all who met her—from humans to cows to cats and other dogs. She managed to make the world around her a happier place, and if all dogs were allowed to do this, the planet would be better for it. When Patches introduced herself to people, the first thing they saw was a smiling black and white border collie with long, silky hair. But Patches quickly established herself as an unusual dog—she innately understood others’ emotions and intentions and communicated with her soft, expressive eyes and entertaining mannerisms. She pulled you into her orbit and brought you joy, and these stories will do the same.
