My wife and I have been, thankfully, spared the loss of a child.
But
we have lost some dogs over the years. My wife was not always the
dog lover I am. We got our first dog when our youngest of two sons
was an infant so she had her priorities and it wasn't a new dog,
that
was mine. Fast forward about 26 years and we got a dog after going
about five years without one. My wife named her Maya and she
was an
awesome dog. She was a bear-coat Shar Pei which you don't see
often

Wow! :-) I've never seen such a dog! Thanks for sharing the
photographs.

Maya died two years ago at the age of 5 1/2. To say my wife was
devastated is an understatement. She was attached to that dog in a
way I had never seen. There are days where I still find her crying
over Maya.
I'm saddened to learn of your loss. I, too, have cried over the loss
of my pets over the years. They do, as you know, become a part of
you.

They certainly do become part of us. We have two now, Bella and
Bubba.
Bubba is from the same litter as Maya was. Bella is six months
younger
from the same father but different mother. We haven't had Bubba
since
he was a pup, we only had Maya at the time. Bella came six months
later. A family on Long Island not far from us bought Bubba. Three
years ago they decided they had to give him up. The couple who
bought
him had a baby at the time and three years later had another one.
Her
mother was going to care for the two children while the mother
went back
to work but she was allergic to dogs so they gave him up. When you
buy
a dog from the breeder we got them from, you agree that if you
decide to
give up the dog for any reason then you must give the breeder first
opportunity to take the dog. The breeder is in North Carolina,
quite a
distance from Long Island. The couple was being difficult and
they were
adamant that they would give the breeder one week to come and get the
dog or else they would send him to a shelter. She was upset about
this
because she couldn't get to Long Island within a week - she has a
family
and a job and what-not to attend to. She asked us if we would take
Bubba until a suitable place was found for him. We agreed immediately
and after having him for a day, we decided we would keep him. He's a
timid dog but a good boy. I wonder what causes him to be so timid
because he avoids being pet most of the time, as if he is afraid. I
wonder how he was treated by his other family.

Stunning Shar Peis you have! I love the asian breeds Shar Pei, Akita
and Chow Chow. I've had Chows for the past 30+ years

A fellow hobbyist photog I know has a champion Chow-Chow he calls
Gus-Gus and he's a beautiful dog. On a shot where we met for the
first time, his wife came along and they brought the Chow-Chow they
had at the time. Those dogs have a reputation for being nasty but
their Chow-Chow was a friendly laid-back dog. Chow-Chows are on some
insurance company lists of breeds that, if the home owner has one,
the company will not provide homeowner's insurance for. I've met a
few Chow-Chows and none of them were nasty.



The name Gus-Gus sounds familiar. Do you recall the breeder's kennel
name?
There were some ill bred Chows in the '80s when they were very popular.
They are not a dog for idiots. They need to be socialized from a very
young age.
At times they have been the 'bad dog' of the press along with the
GSD, Rott, Dobe and
the current Pitt Bull. They don't accept abuse willingly and demand
respect. I never met one that was aggressively mean. Typically they
weren't friendly to strangers if I wasn't around. They weren't
generally fond of salesmen at the door either.


One of my friends chow had the wanderlust. It barely knew me, but when
he saw my car, he would happily jump right in, and bring him home.
When I was around he was a sweeet as could be, to everybody. His owner
was amazed, as with most others he was highly territorial. Go figger.


A lady I know has a Pug. They're a friendly breed but her Pug is very
wary of strangers and scared of them. The first time I went to her home
her dog wouldn't leave me alone, he even tried jumping on my lap.
