My dog has disguised himself as three cats.
Extremely clever dog.
Loki is running the whole show here in my house. He's a very proud little guy. He's fiercely loyal and very protective of us. Where ever we go we bring him with us. He's just a funny lovable spirited dog. We bring him to certain gigs and he runs out on the stage and stands next to me. He's got a standing ovation on a couple gigs. Here I am on stage thinking people are digging the band and in reality the crowd is applauding Loki running out on stage! He's been a huge blessing in my life.
Well since we're also listing the dearly departed let me introduce you to Rocky.
A more loyal, smart and fun loving dog you'll never meet.
Rocky went to Doggy Heaven 7 years ago
Seeing as how many of you (us) miss our dogs---
In "Mr. Bojangles", there's a part that goes,
"he talked about how his dog and him,
travelled the South.
Then the dog up and died, up and died,
and after twenty years he still grieves."
That line always hits home for me.
I still get teary thinking about my three big goobers. I grew u[ with Doxies, but since then, I've always had mutts, Lab /Samoyed, a Lab/Pyrenees, and some mix of sheepdog/St. Bernard. All of them were 125#, and just big, hairy lap dogs. Each one of them chose me, picked me out of a room full of people and other dogs. The best way to get over the loss of a dog is to get a new puppy. They won't let you cry. With me working so many late nights, it was nice coming home at 2 or 3 AM and having someone happy to meet me at the door. I enjoyed many late night walks with them. I knew my wife and daughter were safe with them in the house. Sadly, I can't keep up with a dog anymore. The COPD makes it hard to walk, and it wouldn't be fair to a dog not to get out for exercise and playtime. Still hurts not having a fuzzy buddy. My daughter has one, but he's definitely her dog. She rescued him from a guy who literally abandoned the little goofball.
Putting a dog down is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I couldn't just dump them off and leave. Had to stay till the light in their eyes went out. After all the love they gave me, it's all I could do to make their passing easier. They're only around for a part of your life. You're their entire entire life.
They're our first domesticated animal, our oldest friends. The bond between dogs and humans is the strongest of any other creature. They know what we're thinking, seemingly. They know when we're happy or sad. They're attuned to us completely.
What did we ever do to deserve dogs?
Dog is the reflection of God. They show us what unconditional love is all about.
Beautiful post. God bless you.
Punkin' Pie. She's the boss.
Jackson. He thinks he's people.
But sometimes he gets tired waiting and wondering why nobody's bringing him a plate for dinner.
Thank you. I have been blessed---with three great dogs.
I can relate to this.......
Bunyip, or Bunny. Aussie terrier, snake and rat killer.
Ed should meet Mrs Fluffypants.
Here’s an action shot of Mrs Fluffypants and Ella. It’s all “Go go go” for these two.
My Shih Tzu Buster
This is bigsby. Hes a euro great Dane/neapolitan mastiff. Hes not allowed around the guitars. Dude could swallow a 6120 like it was a treat. Hahaha.
This is Nikita as a nine week old puppy and then full grown. She was an adorable puppy. Forty pounds of roly poly fluff with very stout little legs.
As Wabash Slim said, above:

As Mark Twain said:
"The more I know about people, the more I like my dog! "
My wife and I would be pleased to welcome a dog as we welcome cats in our garden...
But we think that we wouldn't have enough time to deserve to a dog to make him happy as it should, so we don't...
Maybe later ?
I had a great Dane, seriously lovely dogs, would love to get another one down the line but it would mean a bit of a lifestyle change again with such a big dog.
I’m between best pals at the moment. Here’s little buddy Buster, who left us in November
I realize it’s not one of my Gretsches but Wallace was asking me to turn it down...
