We Got Shilo After My Last Dog Samba, Also A Border Collie, Died. Samba Was The Love Of My Life And Even Though It Is 7 Years Since He Passed I Still Miss Him. Shilo Came Into My Life And Helped Me Live Through The Loss And Loneliness Of Losing Samba Just Like Neill Diamond's Imaginary Friend Came To Him In The Song. Thankfully There's Nothing Imaginary About Shilo! He's A Beautiful, Funny, Smart, Loving And Loyal Dog Who Is My Best Friend. I Love Him So Much.
