    Re: Who was your greatest dog ever?

    My wife had this little terrier mix named Sammy when we met and got married. She rescued (took him) from a yard where he was chained up and nearly starved to death. I am an avid bird hunter who loves pointing breeds and am not really a small dog type guy. That dog made me love him and we were best of buds until he died of cancer, and I cried like a little kid. I used to take him everywhere with me (as long as it didn't involve waiting in a car for long periods of time). It ****** my wife off because he then preferred me over her. I miss that little dog.

    Re: Who was your greatest dog ever?

    How can you tell if your wife or your dog loves you the most?

    Lock 'em both in the trunk of your car for an hour. When you open the trunk, see which one is happiest to see you!

    (This is a joke)

    Re: Who was your greatest dog ever?

    For me, it's a little mutt that my parents have (one of three dogs in the house, currently). We picked her up as a stray and kept her when it was pretty clear she'd be neglected/beaten by her previous owners (she was always very scared when you'd put a hand out to touch her and she rarely came when you called). She's got some black lab in her, but she's very small in stature. She licks almost all the time, which is probably the worst thing she does. Otherwise, she's pretty mellow when she's in the house, but she's got plenty of energy to make for a good playmate with our other two dogs (pure black lab and pure blue heeler). The heeler's not bad, either; definitely boisterous, but she's very friendly and loves to play.

    The lab is the newest, only about 9 months old, and I really don't care for him. Maybe it's just because my parents got him right when I was no longer living at home for extended periods of time, but he also is just kind of a *******. Barges his way into your grill when you're petting one of the other two, but he doesn't do it to get attention. He just breaks it up and goes off and does his own thing, usually sending the others off to do something else.

    Re: Who was your greatest dog ever?

    My wife had a yellow lab when we first dated and got married who was awesome. He never barked. Never ate shoes. Stayed off the furniture. Pee'd on command (like a girl). When he was a puppy (less than 2 years old) whenever my MIL would visit he would go in the spare room when she wasn't there and bring out her underwear and lay them in front of the fire place. Then when she would get up and start chasing him he'd pick them up and scamper around the house. The MIL was not quick or agile and so she could never catch him. I could watch that for days.

    But the real reason he was the greatest is that in May 2010 my wife was in a car accident and she ended up in a coma. While she was in the hospital the dog got sick. The kennel took him to the vet who removed a grapefruit sized tumor from his liver. Afterwards he would go to on with life to see my wife during her rehab, and he would sit by her bed. He would walk next to her wheelchair. He would sit quietly during her therapy. she learned to move her right arm by petting him. She learned to walk by walking him and he would walk slowly by her without tugging on the leash or anything. After four months she came home, and he followed her around the house everywhere she went. In January 2011 my wife reached a point where she got a lot of her independence back. She could walk around without assistance, could take care of herself and would soon be back driving. At that point he stopped following her around all the time and then shortly thereafter he had a major seizure and some other issues (he'd been diabetic for a long time but never had any problems like that). We thought maybe his insulin had gotten out of whack so I took him to ISU on a Friday night. They said his kidneys were shutting down and there was nothing they could do for him. He died that weekend. We allowed Iowa State to do an autopsy. They called us afterwards and wanted to confirm what the records said from when he was admitted that he'd become suddenly ill but that he'd been fine since he'd had the tumor removed the previous may. They said that they couldn't hardly believe that he had functioned for eight months since his first surgery because when he died there was more cancer inside his body than there were organs. It had spread to every single organ and his brain. They said that he must have been in incredible pain for months. It's sentimental sap but I always felt like he stuck around long enough to make sure she was okay and when he knew she was going to make it that was when he decided it was time. Such a great dog.
