CONGRATS SD! Sam is awesome!
Snowdragon, that's about the cutest thing I've seen in long time. She wasn't real fond of that video camera though. LOL
"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'Woo Hoo! What a Ride!'"
Congrats on the new addition SnowDragon!! What a cutie

Blue I caught bit and pieces but it sounds like you lost a good friend if not family member....I am so sorry, my deepest condolences. All I know is Morandir said he just went through it last week and I just went through about a month and half ago.
We just got back from our first walk, what should have taken 10 minutes took 2 hours. I got her a nice pink harness and paired it up with a retractable cord leash. We spent the first 15 minutes chewing on the cord, then we worked on our crocodile rolling skills, followed by the zig-zag, drop, "I'm not going any further" and whine. All in all I thought she did great considering it was the longest walk of her life and the first time on a leash.
Hahaha Snow, I can just picture it! Fun... meantime I'm living here with a chicken they sold me saying it was a dog. He shakes so hard by the time we get to the street, we stop because we think he's gonna have convulsions!! Mine's just a little cuddle baby,scaredy cat, you know, one of those that will bark ferociously until someone goes to pet him. And then he has to hide under the coffee table. God I love him though! Carry him around the house like a baby!
Awwwww... I know some day down the road (a ways), a new member will join the family... My son has kinda been wanting a puppy to raise of his own ever since he was 3 or 4, so once enough time has passed and we get through some of our current issues, a new friend will come join us.
And thanks, SD. Agreed, its' never easy, despite being so predictable (in terms of short lifespans, not meaning accidents or disease). And yet we keep doing it over and over again. It's just too incredible an experience not to repeat.
I'm sure whenever that day comes, part of me will feel guilty, and Smidget will be jealous for a little bit, but she's up there with Pewter (first dog, dad named it that as a pun so he could call it by saying 'Come, Pewter!'), Puddles (yes, peed on the carpet a lot), Winkle (slept all the time), and Scratch (my cat, that I had gotten when I was DJ-ing, not due to any issues on the cat's part), and I'm sure they're all having fun waiting for me when it's my time to join them.

Blue, I have quite a few waiting for me as well. I understand about the guilt thing but, you know in your heart that she will not be replaced...you're just giving another the love it deserves.
Snow...nothing better than a rescue!! All of mine are/were rescued. I used to transport for various rescue groups..I was the one who had to get them from the pound and start them on their journey. I would talk to the ones who had to stay, crying and apologizing that I couldn't take them all. It was heartbreaking some days.
I agree with Mystic, they seem to know. I've seen statistics that say about 25% of shelter dogs are pure bred.

I went to a cat shelter once when I was in a position to get very own cat. I had to leave without taking any - how could I take just one ??? I love them all.
Yes, that's right: in Australia, vapour has a 'u' in it, centre ends in re and atomiser is spelt with an S not Z. .Your Truth is not my Truth. Your Truth is true for you, my Truth is true for me.
This does not make either of us wrong or right, just different
Sam is so cute! I could almost smell the puppy breath!
