Ghost, a quiet dog usually

I promise I will not go on and on about Ghost but I need to write down things as I remember them so I can do a substantial scrapbook.

Ghost was not a noisy dog.  He didn’t bark at every advancing person or every little noise.  Oh yeah, he may have grumbled a bit when people were taking too long to get out of the car and come into the tasting room to pet him.  But when he did bark, there was a reason.  Either something or someone was where he/it didn’t belong or he really DID need to go to the bathroom and he had a bladder as big as Hagg Lake.

But I remember a time when he let us know he was not happy.  One evening I was closing the tasting room and RJ was out on the tractor (rare siting for sure, ha!).  I was ready to leave and I have no idea why I didn’t take Ghost with me but I let him out on the porch of the tasting room and left.  He could not see RJ and he didn’t know he was around.  RJ was mowing the south property and heard a strange noise so he stopped the tractor.  Ghost was on the porch wailing because he thought we had left him.  It was the saddest thing.  RJ called for him and once he saw RJ, he sat down on the porch and waited for RJ to finish his work.  From then on we have been careful to leave Ghost somewhere where he knows we are still around.
