Dogs of my past.

It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are - Unknown

Sweet Sofie..

..treasure each moment because sometimes, they are gone too soon.

Sofie found hers
to make us smile

My heart dog

Pierre (1962-1980)

Sweet little fur ball

my college buddy

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they have invaded your territory.
Take naps and stretch before rising.
Run, romp and play daily.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you are not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close and nuzzle them gently.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shade tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you are scolded do not carry guilt, but run right back and start new.
Bond with your pack.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Long after you are gone, remain a memory in your solemate's dreams.
