She has been riding in the pickup since she was a pup, but HATED the big truck.

Just a shot of Gus n Cash to keep this thread from falling too many pages behind.

They have been this close since they were puppies a year apart.

RIP Chase. Thanks for sharing that Jeff ! I said it before in this thread, " Dogs are good people" 

 I have 2 best friends, my wife and my dog👩🐕

 

I have said it many times to my dog, “you are one of my favourite people”

Nicky likes to hold long treats such as dental sticks in her mouth for a while before devouring them, she looks like she’s smoking a cigar

I think someone wore himself out doing dog stuff like taking naps etc. For a small dog he manages to take up a lot of prime real estate aka my recliner

"Army Pack : Horrie the Wog Dog, 2/1 Australian Machine Gun Battalion"

IIRC he could hear the incoming German aircraft before the men and used to sit pointing and howling as a warning

That story was terrible!

I have mixed feelings on the Australian thing. If I remember correctly, the current law states imported dogs have to be quarantined for something like six months before getting their "freedom". Is that right?

I briefly flirted with taking a job in Europe once. Moving the dogs was going to be a nightmare. I was leaning towards taking the Queen Mary 2, as opposed to flying them in crates in baggage.

Of course a lot of people would throw a "therapy dog" vest on them and put them in the cabin!

.......no picture....but there is an advert   on behalf of one particular  ''dog shelter ' ...somewhere in NZ...this on TV, which I see down at my ''happy place '' 

The add  has nice quiet music...starts and .pans in on an old man by his wifes new headstone...You  get the drift....Then you see him  heading home...not particulaly  happy...obviously.....then you see him at the ''dog  shelter'' looking  at various     hounds.....He wanders around..then laboriously  gets  down , on one knee  ..to look at an old hound , missing a front leg..

They leave...the old bloke...with his new hound,  short of one front leg......then the camera pans on them both , down  on a beach..walking together in the sand....the old man is in shorts this time...he has prosthetic leg....from'' hip to toe''....

Kind  of neat, I thought...

It's a neat ad Mike. And one that I like amongst so many pretty dumb attempts these days. Shows a softer side of life that relates to some one actually caring.

Are you getting another? Our yorkie passed October '18, it kicked the helll out of us, but there was this faint flame of something missing whenever we came home and in May of '19 we found joe, nutbar but man another smile maker.

The saddest thing is losing a friend after years of enjoyment, but the one thing we always did is go with them to the office stay with them through the procedure and be the last thing they looked at, I always put myself in their shoes, laying somewhere surrounded by strangers being my last sight, not for us, another option was the vet coming to our house and let the passing happen at home, my gurl did that with her pug, getting all misty here, I'm done.
