"Mac" is for Jamie. Mac, a collie, is one of those dogs that are practically human. He can communicate almost as if he could talk! He has been the faithful companion of Jamie's parents for 13 years, and they call him a "Velcro dog" because he stays attached to Jamie's dad whenever possible. He used to crawl in their laps too--all 70 pounds of fur. He is very patient even now that there are two little kids added to mix. He is a truly amazing dog. Although he is sick now, he sure loved playing and "herding" his people as a young dog.
