I was really moved by Dan's post over at the Moxie blog on his dear dog Shade. Moved to tears as I always am when it comes to loving dogs. Dan, I hardly know you, but I will be thinking of you and your pup today.
I thought I would post a picture of of my Chickie Dog as a pup.
He was a very good boy. And so tiny when we got him from the Human Society, we never imagined he would get to be 60lbs. He had a cruelly docked tail, still scabbed over and the bone sticking out, and had been dropped on his head at some point. He was deaf in one ear and blind in one eye and pretty darn dumb. He had a habit of sitting by your feet and leaning on your leg. But he was a good, good boy. The sweetest, most loving dog I have ever known.
I miss him alot.
