I love my dogs, both current and past. They embody nobility of spirit, pure motives, and unconditional love. They have taught me the value of a good long walk every day. I can talk to them, and sing and dance with them, for they do not judge my clumsiness, they are not critical of my off-key voice, and they forgive my improvised wording. Their patience while waiting for me to understand something they are trying to tell me is profound.
My pets have always found me, usually by showing up at my home, abandoned or lost. Currently catless, I am seeing two older dogs through their senior years. Maybe it's as George Carlin says, "Life is a Series of Dogs". I do believe there is a dog for everyone.
I thought it might be fun to guess what dogs a few other bloggers who've been kind enough to stop by my fledgling blog might have. Feel free to correct my guesses ... or, tell me why your dog is the best in the world. This is my feeble effort to thank you all for your support:

Kvatch, can you go from Blog Bondage to Dog Bondage? Is there a Frog Dog?
And, here's a few friends & family disguised as their dogs. You know who you are. You mean the world to me:
