I just wanted to wish all of you who have dogs as friends in their lives a happy dog day. I can't imagine life without an animal best friend.

When I saw that headline, I thought it was about hot dogs.

Oh maybe I should have made the headline to dog and puppy? I do love a dirty water Coney Island dog though

I did not know this, thanks for the alert and the kind wishes!

I will say that if I could not share my time here with dogs, then I would not want to be here.

I’ve never known a doggy companion, I’ve had the honor of working next to a blind gentleman who would let me pet his lab when he was off leash. I learned to love all things doggy from him, but alas, every apartment I’ve ever lived in would only allow cats, so I’m a Catwoman.

Maybe someday but I don’t think I will ever be able to afford a living arrangement that will allow a doggy companion. So hugs and kisses to those out there who are blessed with them

Buddy was 16 years 10 months old when he died April 20 of this year. I still cry when I think of him.

If you want a friend, get a dog. Our 5 year old pit mix started limping a few weeks back and an x-ray revealed she has severe arthritis in her hip joints and lower spine. Rather unusual for a fairly young pooch, and of course not a whimper of pain from her due to the breed.
My theory is a previous owner ran her too hard when she was a puppy, or it's just a genetic thing. The vet put her on a NSAID medication which helps the condition. She's a big cuddle bug, and every day is Dog Day around here.

Our last two dogs each lived to 15+ and it really hurts when they go. I know the feeling.

Yes, he's a retired racer. He was a failure on the track having won zero races, but he is a great success as a pet because he has completely won my heart.

We had an operation last week. She had a dislocated toe and the vet said it was easier to take it off at the joint than try to fix it.

For most of my 71 years, I was completely ambivalent, if not downright hostile toward dogs. All my siblings and their kids have dogs and they love them.

In May, my wife called from a pet shop in Delray and told me that she fell in love "with that doggie in the window" and would I object if she bought him home. Being in a benevolent mood, I uncharacteristically acquiesced. She came home and dropped him in my lap. I immediately fell in love with a cockapoo. We call him Bailey as his fur is the same color as a shot of Bailey's Irish Cream. I love the little guy. We're taking him to Atlanta and introduce him to the family.

Ah I love cats too, but just not the same degree as dogs. I do have a cat right now, a grey tabby, she’s just short of a wild cat, and watching her and the dog go at it is so much fun. Sadly I think she has aggressive cancer in both of her eyes, it’s very visible, so I’m not sure how much time she may have left.

Animal companions are just the best though!

Glad you finally found a friend in Bailey.
My wife brought Semper and Fi home from work in a box. One of her coworkers was going to take them to the pound. My wife could not let that happen. So I guess they are rescued dogs.
