They're our best buddies. They never judge us. They always love us. They make a shitty day great, and a great day awesome. Unfortunately, they die. This thread is a tribute to all our best friends and the awesomeness they brought to our lives in their short but unforgettable time with us. Post pics of your beloved cat, dog, bird, snake, rodent, fish...whatever. Tell a little bit about 'em and why they rocked. ________________________________________________________________ This is was my dog Pepper. She was my first and only dog. The runt of her litter. The owners weren't specific, but I think she was a flat-coated retriever. She LOVED water like a fat kid loves cake. She would dive right into anything, go to the bottom, and dig up huge ass rocks and bring them to the shore...drop 'em, and go get more. A real excavator! She loved to go get crap I would throw in the woods. She always came to greet me when I got home from school. I didn't have a lot of friends growing up, so she was always there...just sitting beside me, nuzzling my arm for hugs and belly rubs. She never bit anyone. Never heard her growl at anyone. When I was a little 9-year-old shit, I would pull her tail and she would only groan and look at me like "You gonna leave my ass alone, or what?" Most docile dog ever. She finally got real old and died when I was 23 (I'm 26 now). I literally cried on and off for like 3 days straight. I love her so much. I miss her. I miss chasing cows with her in the pasture (and running from them lol). I just wish I could rub her fat little belly one more time and give her nice ear scratches.
