Murphy, a year and a half old:



What a coincidence! Here's a picture of our sainted Murphy who has been dead these past 4 years.



I really miss him.

Not very good pictures, but this is Star, my daughters dog. 

Breed: Heinz 57(not sure what she is)
Age:  10 years
weight:  estimate of 50+ lbs
likes:  jumping in the lake, running, ice cream(I started her on ice cream as a puppy)
dislikes:  My new son in law(he is not too fond of the dog)
unusual trait:  thinks she is a lap dog

Background:  My daughter brought her home when she lived with us while attending college.  She lived with us for a few years until my daughter moved out.  She took to me pretty well especially since I fed her from the table.  My wife and I are thinking about taking her in.  She is crated a lot and stays outside a lot(fenced).  At our house she would sleep where she wants and of course I would spoil her.
That is my son on the couch with Star.

Beautiful Dog.  Reports to the cat. :D  I guess that backs up the saying in Homeward Bound -  'Cats rule - dogs drool.

There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Small world indeed.  Mrs. C. and I have been pretty clear on the fact that once he is gone, we will never get another.  There is no earthly way we will ever have a dog as good and well-behaved as Murphy.

I find Corgi crosses very amusing to look at. They look just like corgi versions of the other dog and it's great, heh.

So I had a friend of mine do a portrait of our dog that I plan to give to my mom on her birthday. I think she did an awesome job.

Keep in mind, the image of the portrait was taken with a cellphone camera. It looks darker than it really is.

D'awwww...

Anyways, I'll will be getting a new dog very soon. It's a chihuahua papillon mix. We don't have it yet, but I've seen a photo and it looks kind of like this:

Corgis are the greatest, I say.  Such a fun breed that you can't stay mad at forever and you can't say no every time you see their face and they bring you lots of joy.  Here's my corgi, his name is Spartacus (my older sister named him).

All the mentioning anc pics of the Corgies has brought back to mind my pet store working experience. This story may be pertinent to this thread.  When I was 19 I worked at one of those mall pet shops, this one was called 'Pass Pets'. It was neat because I love animals and it was a cool way to get to play with the exotic birds, snakes, lizards and so forth without having to actually own them. But I HATED the fact that the dogs and cats were caged in these little crates all friggin' day....basically until they sold sometimes for months.

So the deal was every dog when it arrived was assigned a letter code and each letter represented a number, and that was the 'minimum' the store would sell the dog for. They'd mark them up and then ask you to sell them.

Well, if a family was interested in a dog you'd get it out for them and then let them go into a room with it to play with them and what not. It was a private setting ...so I'd enter that room and lay the scoop down. Is tell them the deal....the store wants (let's say) $500 for the dog, but I know the minimum they'll take is $100. I'd petition them to 'free' the dog from its crate fate and take it home for the minimum. Honestly, I sold the crap out of those dogs with that method. I mean, if you could get a full blood boxer for $200 instead of $1000 wouldn't you do it?

But, it didn't take long for management to realize what I was doing and for me to get a stern talking to about changing my tactics. I didn't and honestly I can't remember if I was fired or just quit....but in the four or five months I worked there I was a dog freeing mo' fo'

Something else that always bothered me was we would get 'shipments' of puppies. Literally a truck would pull up to the back door....it'd be full of small cages with an assortment of breeds....and they'd bring them in. Some shady Vet would be in the back room and inspect each one for a minute or two and either 'pass' or 'fail' them. Those that passed were given thier code and ready to sell, those that didn't were handed back to the truck driver and.....I always wondered what happened to those poor pups.

BTW....I ended up with a Boston Terrier from that job....Gabe. He was awesome, I'll try to dig some pics of him out. He ended up as my mothers dog so to speak but he was a cool little fella. I wouldn't mind owning another Boston Terrier some day.

Me and the Old gal at the beach the other day.  We walked about a mile like normal, but this time she was just wiped out later.  She really seemed out of it that night.  It makes me sad realizing THAT time probably isn't that far off.  She's going on 14...that in itself is just awesome!!!!
