This was his growing up buddy Hobbes the cat......as you probably guessed yup....Calvin & Hobbes :D notice where Hobbes' front paw is :cloud9:

The first pic I took of Cally :lovestruck: after I met him at 4 years old. He was a Dalmatian Black Lab cross but all Dalmatian :lovestruck:

Mischief was the first of the two cats to accept this hyper-growly-cat-chasing-dog into the house :D
50498

Proof of the hierarchy :laughing: Dog on the towel Cat on the blanket. He soon learned unlike his 1st buddy Hobbes, the cats in this house don't like to be chased
50499

The 3 musketeers :laughing: The cats were on the couch first & Cally took the opportunity to join them :sleepy:

Cally loved the jacket (fleece lined & waterproof), not so much the boots but once he realised the snow wasn't cold on his toes anymore, he tolerated them cuz Cally loved snow almost as much as he did the sunbeams :D

Duffy & Cally were the very best of buddies ~ cuddly, playful & teasing. You could literally see them teasing each other & laughing about it, but he always knew she was The Boss. :D

The Last Photo of my :angel2: Cally

I feel him with me every day, every where I go, sometimes I still instinctively move to walk past people with dogs so they pass on my right, as if he was beside me at heel on my left.

Cally 4 Apr 1992 - 26 Aug 2004 :rip: I miss you & your grumbling growls :cry2:

Thanks Scuba :D

Seeing as I missed the first 4 years of his life, fell in love as soon I met him at 4 yrs, adopted him at 6 yrs I'm grateful to have the few puppy pics I have :lovestruck:

I didn't know you had a dog either. He was a handsome guy. They never really leave us after they've gone, do they?

Thanks everyone for the compliments :)

Growler, what a handsome boy he was. You are lucky to have had him in your life for as long as you did.

That he certainly was. :lovestruck: Unfortunately even 6 years wasn't long enough :sad:

What a beautiful boy. You'd never guess he was a cat chaser, he looks very content and cuddly with them :lovestruck:

The cat chasing was just a game between Cally & Hobbes, it's how they played. :D I was nanny for the family when I met Cally so i got to see first hand that there was nothing serious to it. :) Cally tried that with Mischief & Duffy and they showed him they weren't gonna play that one :laughing: No scratches, blood or hard feelings though they both refused to run & stood up to him :D

Cally even had a white chin when he was a puppy :lovestruck: :cloud9:.

Yes he did :lovestruck: it led down to the dalmatian spots patch on his throat & chest :D

Growler,I didn't even know you once had a dog,Cally looks wonderful,but the kitties truly rule:laughing:

No they don't ever leave :cloud9:

Cally was one of 3 dogs in my life: http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=42416

What a beautiful visual story. For whatever reason the wisdom in the face of an older dog has always appealed to me. There is something so warm and 'knowing' when I see those that are having great lives.

You know Growler, when I go to see the older guys and gals at the HS - I can't look the other way - I end up pulling them out and finding forever retirement homes for them.

Very beautiful story you have in your gentleman.
