Current Events

We lost a valuable part of Oakdale on January 7th when Red Dog fell thru the ice on the pond and died.

This is what one of Red Dog's Boarder friends wrote about him:


Ode to Red Dog


You exited as you arrived

An unanswered question

In the beginning you were a vision

Something people saw at a distance

Then you became a dog

Finally you became Red Dog

We didnít know your name

Not that it was important

Because you finally grew to trust us

Never completely

Except for a trusted few people

Then there were the other dogs

They were your friends

And you theirs

Forming a little group

Who took care of one another

We could see things in your eyes

We didnít want to know

As you came to trust me

I counted it as special

Because you were careful

About just who was your friend

You always kept a distance

So you could escape

If the problem occurred again

Your buddies at the farm left you

As they passed on

They were waiting for you

When your time came

As you left us here

Wondering why

Knowing there is no answer

Iíll still look for you

Because you will always be

The official greeter at the farm

Thanks for sharing

A part of your short time with me
