Cash, the Dog in Black, is not Rex at all, but he certainly took Callie's mind off her troubles and he is a dear dog. And when I think of the awful things that could have happened to him...
There are plenty of beautiful animals out there in need of a loving home who will bring joy to your heart, please adopt one if you can. I'll be looking for another faithful friend to share the journey with in time.
I read your post saying about Sheeba going for a ride after the show in Monterrey and thought you were referring to your dog. It's a tough thing to lose unconditional love. My heart goes out to you and hope you find a special way to remember her.
so sorry for your loss. I lost my Rex at almost 16 last year and still miss him, despite the many distractions presented by the new young dog who came to distract the grieving Callie. Who's now an old lady herself.
Safe passage to Sheba, and happy reunions to us all down the line.
My 18 year old dog Sheba passed away 1o/21/11. She had been with me to Grateful Dead shows in Eugene, Portland, and Seattle- a couple The Dead shows- a few Ratdog shows- a Rhythm Devils and a 7 Walkers show- and a Furthur show in Monterrey. Our last road trip after Monterrey was quite special. She lived years longer than I expected and looked good and stayed active right to the end, but it had been getting tough for a while. I'd been up with her since 2 in the morning the day she passed and could tell this was the moment I'd been dreading for a long time, I finally got her to swallow one of her pain pills about 5 am, then at 7am as day was breaking I played her a song on the guitar and while I was still playing she kicked her legs back a couple times like she was making a leap to go join that band of Angels on the other side, then I just held her and she was soon gone. She faced death with courage and strength, just as she lived.
I'm trying to win $1000 in a competition to donate to bushfire victims in Australia. All I need to do is have the biggest group on facebook before feb 15th.

and condolences to his family.
Our much loved male cat Sixto, a white, gray, black and brown shorthair, with six toes on his paws almost made it to his twentieth year. We had to euthanizie him after he suffered some neural damage and couldn't walk anymore without falling over. I knew he was getting old and had gone deaf but I hoped he would make it through the summer. It was his favorite season. He would pad out to our backyard and sleep under the patio table in the grass. I miss him.
