not sure where to put this..

when charlie was a puppy we met ringo. ringo was a dingo cross and was a real little spunk and was 10yrs when we met. he had a great spirit. when his owner johnathan went anywhere, ringo could not be left, he would just escape and walk to every house he knew until he found johnathan, he showed up at our door a few times, he would wander in to the house or yard, have a look, no johnathan, he would move onto the next place. he used to show up at our training course every day for a year and sit outside with charlie (also kept her company at parties, the doggies used to have their own parties while we had ours). oh boy did charlie love him, she used to jump all over him in her puppy joy, and he always tolerated her. ringo also only ate curry most of his life, he ate anything johnathan ate and he travelled australia in their modified camping van. (and he never once had a bath only swims, you should have smelt him he was so cute).
on the weekend i saw ringos old mum. i immeadiatly asked for him and sadly was told he passed in the year of 2000. oh boy it is sad, i cried for him, he had a good life but it is still a friend that has passed. he died happily in the arms of his dad under a beautiful tree in the pine forest, just where he would have loved. it made me sad to hear, although it was a few years ago he was a good little mate and a beautiful spirit (i get so close to my doggy friends and remember them all esp cuddles). i have written this so we can all share the beautiful memory of a fun, oh so loved and happy dingo. i know his beautiful spirit will go on forever, and i will never forget him.

Although sad Mel it sounds like he passed in one of the most special ways and places possible to his heart and soul!

R.I.P Ringo ......sounds like a great puppy dog, and very similar to my friends dog.
For anyone who knows Scarborough (westhill) He lived near the guild inn for many years with his parents when he moved out he took his dog jessy with him to a house near Lawrence and Manse Rd. He set up jessy with a dog house out back chained him up and said his goodbyes in the morning and off to work he went. He was a cab driver so he could come back periodicly to check on him at 9:00 am he came back to check on him and he was gone.
He called everyone he knew to see if Jessy had showed up to no avail. His parents were away in Spain at the time, but a neighbour called him and said that Jessy had shown up at his parents place around 3;30pm and was in the back yard. You see my friend had taken Jessy everywhere and used to ride through Morningside Park all the time, seems Jessy just did a little backtracking and figured he would find his master at the old place.....lol
Some dogs seem to be very smart that way :)

I'm not in scarborough anymore, I grew up in Scarborough though my last place I lived was McCowan and Ellesmere until I moved up here 5 years ago to country livin :)
When I was a kid I lived on Birkdale Dr. then moved to Van -Lee (McCowan and Eglington then off to Mornelle court as a teen (morningside Park was my weekend hangout as I had kids at a young age and the park was our little haven) it was nice there then can't say much for it now it has changed drastically :(
I lived in Pickering for a spell then yes finally McCowan and Ellesmere my kids went to Bendale P.S. then J.S woodsworth

i feel so lucky sometimes, i have been lucky to have met some of the most beautiful creatures god could make, it sucks that they go away eventually but i wouldnt trade this happiness for anything, even with all the heart break.
i love all my doggy friends, even with all the comments and strange looks, i dont care, i would not trade it for the world.
boy some dogs are truly smart, i think charlie is really clever but she has no road sense, ringo and jesse had alot of road sense, i wonder why some dogs are so darn clever, it is like they truly have a mind of their own.
