I've got a golden retriever that I named "Cosmo" after Cosmic Charlie. As soon as I adopted him, my wife thought I was going to name him Jerry, but I said that was too obvious. So I started reeling off characters from Dead songs and we considered a few others from literature (i.e., "Scout" from "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Hunter" from Robert Hunter and Hunter Thompson) and from the area that we live in near Philly (i.e., "Franklin" for Ben Franklin and "Franklin's Tower" and "Parker" since we got him in Parkesburg, PA), but my wife liked Cosmic Charlie, and she suggested Cosmo as a morph of that name, and it stuck. And if it's possible for a dog to live up to a name like Cosmo, well, he does it admirably.

Sure miss my dog Lucky, he sure was a real Grateful Dead dog though, his fav hiking spot and amp. was Red Rocks. I had to put him down in Late March for he had cancer real bad. I sure do miss him lots ;(.......the day he got put down ( vet came and did at home), we laid on the deck together and listened to Ladder to The Stars, the all live 2-cd set off all Live Dylan songs from the Dead and JGB
... was incredible! I don't even scoop as often as he did! and he brushed out my Princess's coat and used my bottled water to fill her water fountain thing. $18/day for a 45 minute visit. I will have him back now every time I go out of town for the weekend.
What an incredible letter- brings tears to my eyes. izzie, you are a very lucky lady to have found such a wonderful cat sitter.
Thanks for sharing the letter-
What a list of cool animals.My husband and I have 3 dogs Monkey,Macy and Charlie.We hope to get a few chickens and ducks this summer.You have my dream,I would love to have a farm full of friends.
I have 1 Dog and 4 cats
The Dog is a 3 month old Alsation called Nico
The Cats are called simi, Snowie, Harley and Gabriella
Auggie looks cool. I almost got a burnese mtn dog, they're smart....but opted for a mutt because the b.m.d. that I was looking at was like $700.
The bigger the breed of dog, the shorter their lifespans are....sorry for your loss.
Hi folks! That's my best buddy Earl in my picture.
My feeble, get-rich-quick attempts:
Deepest sympathies on losing Auggie. They do leave such a hole in your heart when they go. My Rex is pushing 13 and in generally good health, but I sure do cherish every day I have with him.
