We interrupt the regular stream of yammering about rss, wikis, flickr, tags, learning objects, eportfolios, spam (actually it’s been a while for that, don’t ask why) for something meaningful to me (well it is my blog).

It’s been more than 3 months since my companion and subject for the “dog” part of this site, Mickey, the Labrador Retriever, left the house. I must have gotten more comments from that (sans phentermine related items) than anything else written here, so blogs are need not just be about the “news” we write.

It was a week or so ago, I quietly brought Mickey’s graphic back from the 70% transparency at the CpgDogBlog masthead.

I finally got around to working up a tribute to a sweet dog who had a short life– see Mickey’s Tribute or see the story in pictures (also at flickr).

Dogs (and cat too I guess) get right in your heart.

Profile Picture for Alan Levine aka CogDog
An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.


  1. Oh how your tribute to Mickey made me hooowl !! So sorry and so sad, Alan, but what a beautiful tribute. Rainbow bridge reference just turned the taps on afresh !

  2. I was so sorry to hear about Mickey’s beautiful yet incredibly tragic life. Mickey is beautiful and lives on. The spirit of Mickey is still definitely alive in cogdogblog … Thank you for sharing.
