BLOGGER ROY RECENTLY LOST HIS DOG. My bet: Hearing "GENTLEMAN JIM' REEVES recite this one will "give ya the sniffles."

(Tige you were faithful faithful to the end, Tige now I miss you you were my best friend) - -

Three years of Army Service done and I was headin' home at last -- I got to thinking bout my dog and things long gone and passed -- How old Tige pulled me from the creek when I had no pulse or breath -- How he saved me from the chargin' bull that gored my Dad to death--As a kid I'd dream of bears and tremble to my toes --Till old Tige come up to my bed and nudge me with his nose -- Then my fears would melt away and Tige would go lie down I'd drift on back to sleep without another sound --The big bus stopped I got off it was awful dark and thick with fog -- Then something gently nuzzled me and there stood Tige my dog - wondered if my faithful dog had met the bus each day --And all the dreary winter nights since I'd been away -- Have Tige meet me here like this I was I was really glad -- Cause I hadn't needed Tige so much since the day they'd burried Dad -- Two long miles still lay ahead but what I didn't know -- A giant Dam was being built where the old road used to go -- I thank the Lord for sending Tige and I followed where he led -- Knowing well without his help that I'd be good as dead -- Tige inched along this way and that going rough and slow -- And I could hear the water lappin' at the ledges far below -- Then through the mist I saw a light and mother in her chair -- And I reached down to pet old Tige but he wasn't there -- I'm thankful Mom you had old Tige these three lonely years I owe my life to him tonight I couldn't help my tears You say you wrote me bout the Dam well God was sure with us -- I didn't get your letter Mom but old Tige met the bus -- I hate to tell you son she said but now you've got to know -- When you left it broke his heart Tige died three years ago --(You were my best friend)

DO YOU BELIEVE SUCH THINGS REALLY HAPPEN? WAS TIGE AN ANGEL IN THIS STORY?
