Boundless fidelity and memory of

This history began far from here, in one small small village almost on the very brink of light, in times when time as to any child of my age was subject to me, and life was not framed with problems. It was so long ago that I will not remember all events, but images of the past remain in my heart to this day. One of them - the one who came from nowhere. And also returned in Anywhere...

Since the earliest childhood us with the grandmother was taken out to the village where there passed the whole summer before the first school days in school. It was time without cares and problems, time of smiles, bright impressions and dreams. Every winter I looked forward to arrival of a warm season to be somewhat quicker far from the city where there is no civilization where only you and the sky...

Once (I already also do not remember, how and when) in the village it appeared - a smart dog of the West Siberian laika. Yes, most that nayest thoroughbred dog. From where he there as it appeared - did not know nobody. And did not want to know.

He chose by

our house where at once fell in love with it and sheltered, gave a roof and food. Also became the devoted friend, the Trump Ace as we called it, the Ace, Tuzy, Tuzy and the Jolly-boat.

the Ace was surprisingly quick-witted

, every time thoughtfully listened when he something was told, and with some inhuman wisdom looked in eyes. It accompanied me everywhere, whether it be walk to the river or a campaign in the wood. He preserved, warned bark about dangers - the approaching car or pack of dogs. It brought in a bad weather out of the wood when lost hope to leave to the village. And it consoled when it seemed that the world falls. It was possible to leave at night from the house to walk and be sure that you under reliable protection - the Ace will not leave, it will always protect, he will never betray. He was always nearby, my most loyal friend...

So there passed not one summer. For several years the Ace was near, like the Guardian angel. But once it was decided to be left in the village with the grandmother for the fall that she did not long one. He saw off us on the bus and was already ready to go. “Remain, go home, you are still necessary here, - I whisper to it on an ear. - We will meet soon. Very soon. I will wait for you the house...“ He understood everything. Also ran back.

But any more never though we also waited for it returned...

it were broken off by wolves on the autumn road. And only scraps of wool were found several days later by our neighbor...

Ya still I remember his eyes full of wisdom of the Universe, I remember its heroic acts, I remember graceful gait and boundless devotion. To this day I regret that did not take away it then with themselves, and I so wanted...

of Second it will never be any more. I remember you, I still wait for you, my most loyal friend.
