Default Dog Lovers Chat

Thought I'd start a thread for pooch enthusiasts like myself since I didn't see one I could peruse for my doggo fix. Please post anything dog here. Thanks. I miss my rottie, Roxy. She passed away at 12 years old on December 8th 2017 and I miss her sooooo much. Talking to other folks that are crazy about dogs is therapeutic for me.

I don't know how to share photos BUT if you search "Dodger the therapy husky" on Facebook you can find my dogs page. He passed away a year ago this oct at age 15

He was my best friend. My world. I still have a hard time without him.

I do have another dog, he is also 15 now. He's my anxiety support dog. Goes to all my therapy sessions with me

Dogs are great therapy. I love walking them or petting them or just sitting in quiet with them.

My dog is a cairn terrier mix from the humane society and he makes my day better whenever he greets me as I return home from work. 🐕

I'm so sorry for your loss. There's just something about dogs that makes losing them especially sorrowful and difficult to accept. Maybe it's because their love is so pure and they don't hold back in giving it to us. They spend their short lives wanting to please us above all. It seems so unfair that they should have to experience death and sickness.

What's your other pup's name? And, wow...two 15 year old dogs? That's exceptional. Do you have any tips for longevity? Do you do anything special?

I'm going to go over to check out Dodger's FB page. Give your furbaby some love for me. Thanks for sharing.

Awww...that's awesome that you got him from the Humane Society! What's his name?
And I know what you mean, coming home to a dog is one of the greatest joys in life in my opinion.
