 And each dogs and cats have different talent !!  :o  :D

It's hard to believe that a poll that asked which were better, Cats or Dogs, has been going for almost 13 years.

Well, it just sort of turned into a general Cats AND Dogs thread! ;D

Way back when this thread was young, there was a young Bug (Boston Terrier/Pug) named Katie. Katie loved to eat (especially spaghetti), enjoyed long (but not too long) walks, and laying in front of the fireplace. But, she loved people the most. She actually had a sense of humor, showing a huge smile whenever anyone was laughing nearby or talking to her.  She struggled with her health the last 18 months of her life, but never stopped smiling. When her legs gave out on her, she enjoyed being carried around. Her hearing diminished to where she could only hear the loudest sounds, and her vision had gotten equally bad.  When her bladder and bowels went, I knew it was time to put her down. My next-door neighbor had a dog that Katie enjoyed being around, so I took her next door to say goodbye, and as if it was divine intervention, my neighbor insisted on adopting her. He and his girlfriend had been discussing adopting an elderly dog, and here I was with mine to say goodbye, ready to put her down. They took Katie, and she was right next door where I could visit, and I did. They bought a cart for her back legs so she could still get around, but Katie wouldn't use it. So they bought her a baby-stroller, and that she loved. They enjoyed her for about a year. Katie was blessed to have two families that loved her and treated her like a queen. 

Katie passed on today at the age of 16. She's left many broken hearts behind.  I found this article a while ago, and bookmarked it. I knew it would be good to add here someday, so for everyone who has lost a beloved pet: Why Your Dog’s Death May Be The Most Difficult Event Of Your Life

Awwww, so sorry, Matt. I still have a picture of her as a puppy on my refrigerator. I looked at it just yesterday and wondered whether she was still hanging in there.

R.I.P, dear little Katie. Why are these pure and perfect souls granted such a short span on earth, compared with so many wicked human beings?

Very sorry to hear that, Matt. I remember you posting about her years ago. So glad she was able to be around a while longer.

My oldest dog is 13 and I wonder how much longer she'll be around. The dog we had before her lived to be almost 15 (he was hit by a car on May 2004 and had to be put down).

I adopted/inherited my dad's cat, "Baby". Don't know if I've shared him here before.

Yes, he has very cool eyes!

The dog I mentioned in the post above is still around--she'll be 16 in a couple weeks.

All right, best not to ask why I am researching the St. Bernard dog breed as part of my library job, but ... your "Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww" moment of the day:



As an aside, this breed used to be known for its prowess at rescuing people from blizzards in the Alps ... they were "rescue dogs." What do we call them nowadays, since "rescue dog" seems to have shifted meaning, and is now used almost exclusively to designate a pup who has been liberated from a dog pound or shelter? ???

Love this breed! Funny you mention that about rescue dogs, because you're right -- and yet I still think of these "working dogs" as simply rescue dogs. Google tells me they're SAR (Search and Rescue Dogs) now.

Don't know that I've shared this story before, but I was shocked to find my French Bulldog, Penny, (about as far from a SAR as any) has an innate desire to rescue. Back when Katie was still around, she had gotten herself under a bed full of storage, and was unable to back herself out. She was stuck under the bed with boxes blocking her path, and started crying. Penny heard her, ran to her, poked under the bed, assessed her situation, ran to the other side of the bed and started pulling out everything that was blocking Katie's path until she was able to move forward the rest of the way out from under the bed. I just stood back and watched, as it was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen a dog do. Then there was the the time I was running downhill with Penny, tripped and wiped out and for a good couple of minutes couldn't move. She was in terror, trying to find help, licking my face, and finally so relieved when I got up again. Dogs are amazing creatures.  My SAR:
