My Beastly Boy

Here's a lovely picture some of the good folks on's A-Team (Angel Team) created for my Little Guy after he passed:
I like the kind of oil-painted look it's got (necessary, as that wasn't a digital pic but a rather old, tiny, scanned-in photo).

I miss my doggie. The cats are nice, but they aren't dogs (sorry, Emily).

So sorry about Little Guy. It sounds as if he had a good, long life with you and that it was a very happy one. Thanks for adding Diva to your Dogster friends! I know what you mean - we have a cat too, who is very loving, but cats are not dogs, and can't take their place. You need both!

Awwww (((((Amanda)))) that is really beautiful.

My boy is 14, and we know his time left with us is growing shorter. :(

So sorry for your loss. I still miss Ladybug (half-Pyrenes/half-Rotweiller) and Columbo (chocolate Labrador), and it's been nearly four years for each. One May 2004, the other November 2004).

Maui, Angel, and rlbates, thank you all. It's been a little under two months, so I still go through these "grief spurts."

I adore my kitties. I feel bad when I remind them they're not dogs (a fact for which they're likely eternally grateful, LOL). I just need both :)

The dog will wait a couple more years, though, until Little Satan (my younger brother's nickname for my younger son) is about six, and a bit more able to handle having a small puppy in the house.
