Well Richard,
If you had taken good care of your dog companion earlier on, he would not have been loaded with fleas and ticks. Probably took off to find a person who'd relieve him of the fleas and ticks. Since you miss your old dog, find another dog to companion with, and take care of that one.

  Friends, or not,

  I am reminded of the time that I blew up, cussing the bloodsucking, starving army of fleas and ticks that the dog was bringing into the house, day after day, bedroom in particular. My old, dear dog heard me raising L, cussing, and carrying on louder and madder than I had before, or since for that matter. Inside the house was lousy with fleas and ticks.  Well, he up and left on his own, out fear or hurt never did know. 

  The fleas and ticks remained though. Some say they can survive seven years without blood, all I know is that they keep stealing enough of mine. As those buddhists say, I am still suffering; and, I am damned unhappy about it. Gonna fumigate the house, again; ain't gonna listen to buddhism according to fleas and ticks while they dine.

  Problem is still I miss the dog, it was a source of joy, a quiet companion at times, and even vigilant. Be nice to have the grungy stud return, but it does need flea and tick collars regularly as well as an occasional bath. Most of all, it needs to realize that bloodsucking persistent parasites are part of a dog's life but they really rile me and a few others.
