Mashable ^ | July 6, 2014 | Dennis Green

Little Carter has what everyone wishes they had as a kid: a real-life teddy bear in the form of an extremely affectionate and loving pup.

Toby, a rescue dog, is sweet and affectionate to the toddler. The pair are undoubtedly best friends and have been pretty much inseparable since before they ever even met.

When our daughter was a baby, about 40+ years ago, a couple we often visited had a German Shepherd named Buggar. He was a sweet, slightly “affected” dog, but the minute we first walked through the door with our baby (they had no kids yet) Buggar was attached to Jannah at the hip! He would not go off the blanket. He’d get taken off, then he’d creep back over slowly until he was lying next to her. When she could walk, they were inseparable! They kept Jannah for us for those few “dates” we had...we were in the military then...and Buggar would be at the door BEFORE the car actually arrived, waiting patiently for her to come through the door. Once Debbie told Buggar to make sure Jannah did not go up the stairs. Jannah did, and as soon as she got up the stairs, Buggar sat down to block the steps and then barked so Debbie would know. They would play in the toilet together! (There was one tiny BR toilet left for Buggar to drink from...his own toilet to play in and he and Jannah frequented the toilet together!) It was so cute! She missed Buggar after we moved from there (when my husband got out of the military and returned to college). Sweet memories.

Most definitely not purebred, but most definitely heavily GS! Maybe with a bit of terrier or other smallish breed mixed in (Podengo?), with that snippy snout and proportional yet weak ear.

Hello,

I used to be able to post here often, job now keeps me away a lot. With all the insanity happening now, I wondered if I should post to you that in about 30 minutes my husband will be home to bury my sweetest Cricket in our backyard. She died yesterday, only 7, too early. It’s a long story, but I loved that little girl so much. I can’t stop crying. I have never known a better little dog, all of 6 pounds, that loved life, loved us and gave so much.

I am so sorry for your loss — think of all the good times you had with Cricket and wherever she is she still loves you.

I am sure you’ve see it, but you may want to reread it anyway:

Dear MOgirl.. I have tears running down my face.. The pain of losing a beloved dog is as deep as it is for any human being we love. Cricket was so young. I am deeply sorry for the loss you are going through. You are in my thoughts and prayers. *Hugs*

Not bad, but probably more Shiba. Akitas too big and bulky. That dog is very snippy in profile.

Hello,

Thank you so much. All of the posts I got from kind and wonderful FRiends does help. The long story is that Cricket would still be here if the vet I trusted had found something very basic, so losing her at age 7 is really hard to handle. I have gotten through today without crying, which is an improvement, but there were moments that I thought I couldn’t do it. Thanks again.
