While I revel in the joy of life changed with the introduction of my newish dog Felix, my calendar bittersweetly reminds me today is the day 23 years ago I put down my first dog, Dominoe. She too was adopted, though not via a shelter, but via co-workers of my friend and them apartment-mate, Kevin, […]
Upon arriving home today I found the photo above on a postcard from my sister- on the back it reads “Couldn’t resist!” She’s referring to my first dog, Dominoe, who traveled with me out to Arizona in 1987. With some sad irony, yesterday marked the day she passed on to Rainbow Bridge. I have to […]

Interestingly, I spotted 53212 photos found by searching on “dalmatian” sorted by interestingness (well I did not actually count, I used […]
If you’ve clicked by my 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell Story you will know I have told the same old dog story 50+ times, so it was a refreshing suprise when I got an email tonight from Claudia Ceraso describing a novel way she used Dominoe’s flickr set as a way to have her […]
cc licensed flickr photo shared by cogdogblog Today (July 24) is my day to honor my first and most special dog, Dominoe, who left this world in 1993. Is it really 17 years? That’s a full generation. And it was long after that that I told her story like 50 million times. cc licensed flickr […]
