Big Dog Tribute

We were so sorry to learn about the passing of our Australian friend, Charlie, aka Chuck-Z-Bux aka Big Dog. He was a special friend, and we loved his antics - pushing the bucket with his head, running in circles through the house and back outside again, and kvetching about "stupid" stuff -- like his SHD (stupid human dad), SHM (stupid human mom), and sister Opy.

Big Charlie was a dog with 'tude, as they say. And because our Charlie is too, they became internet buds.

His parents, of course, are the founders of Dogs with Blogs -- Greg and Brooke -- two wonderful people who've created a community out of a rag-tag bunch of dog bloggers. I know they're hurting right now, so stop by Opy's or Charlie's when you can and say a few words.

Run free, Big Dog - you're missed by more people than you ever knew!

Well Pawed Golden Charlie!

We are still numb...

Keeping pawing that but it is the truth...

At least we have each other to leak with...

We are so sad to learn of Charlie's sudden passing. Please share this little poem with Brooke, Greg and Opy. We find some comfort in it and hope, in time, they will too. (We could not post on their site) Thank you. C-pup and her humans.

And if I go, while you are still here...
Know that I still live on,
Vibrating to a different measure,
Behind a thin veil that you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart,

I will be there.
