Comments28/06/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergWhat a wonderful piece of storytelling, Barbara, especially for dog lovers like me. I had a Golden Retriever named Lucky when I was a kid. He had such a good nature and was so lovable. That is, excluding the times he would run away. Lucky was a big dog and could rest his paws on my shoulders when he stood of his hind legs (I wasn't yet a teenager at that time). Lucky weighed about 80 pounds. He was also every strategic and sneaky about escaping (or busting out, as we called it).
Lucky would lie on the floor in the foyer all quiet and unsuspecting. Then when someone came to the house he would time the exact moment before the screen door closed to spring forward and bust out in one fell swoop like a burst of lightening. We think he had a girlfriend in the neighborhood.
And while we were always worried about Lucky when he was gone for hours and couldn't find him, Lucky would always return home safely (thank goodness). May Lucky rest in peace up in canine heaven; I miss you, pal!
Thanks for the memories, Barbara, and keep buzzing!

New York City Subway banned dogs unless they fit in a bag and the people of New York did not disappoint.
i WISH WE COULD DO THIS IN Australia !
I used to take my 8 week old dachshund puppy into the supermarket in a Green Bag' till he got too big.
Comments07/06/2017 #1 Wayne YoshidaI think this is a good idea, especially if someone brought in a drooling or smelly old dog into a subway, that cannot be good. Some people are scared of dogs, or allergic to them.
I would love to see someone bring their Mastiff or Great Dane aboard the subway in a carrying bag!

Comments03/06/2017 #4 Charlene Norman@Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee I have been a dog owner for only 22 years. Because hubby has allergies, we can only have purebred, non-allergenic dogs. Bichons are our preferred choice. I remember being interviewed by the breeder for our first dog to determine if we were suitable parents. I thought it was odd but eventually came to understand completely the why. I guess we were suitable because we eventually become foster parents to her champion male stud. Your loving testament to the world of dogs is beautiful and oh so truthful. It is clear you were one of the best kinds of breeders. My heart aches for the holes you still have. I am so glad the memories of your fur babies are still vivid and thank you for your gift of so poignantly sharing with us.
Comments01/06/2017 #20 Renée 🐝 Cormier#18 Yes. I can teach them anything very quickly, as long as they are interested. They love to learn the names of new objects and pick them out on command. Buster is particularly fond of animal noises, so he quacks, oinks, barks, meows and clucks like a chicken. Good fun!

Runnin' down the road
My dog drops a load
From his little hairy behind.
Then he's gotta slow me
When he's gotta go pee
On every weed and bush he finds.
