    Much as I disagree with Bush on just about everything, I thought his two dogs were pretty cute. There's something about a presidential dog I really like. They can disobey and even piss on the most powerful man in the world, and get away with it! Who else could claim that?

    There's something about losing a dog that's just a real gut-ripper. BTDT, didn't like it.

    I just wish people could be as loyal as dogs to the rules they learn when young...Then again, maybe they are, and that's the problem.

    That's sad. I lost my cat last June and it still is upsetting. I had problems waking up my 12.5 year old cat this morning. I'm dreading her dying.

    I know I want to empathize here, since I lost a loyal and faithful family pet many years ago myself. I had a (even the vet wasn't sure) dog that was a mix (best guess) Husky, Shepard, Coyote, and who knows what else. She was a beautiful animal and watched over my kids as they grew up, protecting and playing with them as her own pups. No matter where I went during my explorations (Southern California DWG volunteer) she always seemed to climb and go where ever she wanted, So the name I gave her was "Chiva" (Spanish for goat) because she would go places during our excursion to the desert that I wouldn't even try to go. When she reached 16 she developed arthritis in her hip and sometimes couldn't even come to her food dish. I had to carry her outside and back inside so she could go potty. Finally we decided she was in so much pain and there were no drugs I could get for her, my son (now 16 years old) and I decided to put her down. I still get teary eyed when I think of her..... as I am right now, as we loved her as much as a member of the family would be.

    Good-bye Spot I know you will be in good company.
