A Life Well Lived

Blog Mom says she has to download and resize pictures from Passover and she's pretty tired right now, so I guess we won't be able to post about that until tomorrow or the next night, It was lots of fun, though.

I don't really mind waiting because I've been meaning to post about this story that we saw  at the USA Today Paw Print Post the other day. On the one paw it made us sad because Reddog, the Shar Pei in the story, has crossed over, but on the other paw, it made us happy that he had a long, good life. Look at him smiling on his 14th birthday. Speaking as a Shar Pei, if you could guarantee me 14 and a half good years I'd have to take the deal.

Most of the humans in the furryshpere would probably do as much for us as Reddog's Mom did for him. I know mine would, but it's good to point out ways they can be creative while making sure we're as happy and feel as loved as possible. You know we'd do the same for them, within the limits of our abilities.

We hope that Reddog's human finds another Pei so they can make each other as happy as she and Reddog were together.


  1. What a wonderful story! My grandma had a sheltie that liked to ride in a baby stroller. Got to go out and smell smells and see people and not get too warn out!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. That picture speaks a thousand words about what a wonderful boy Reddog must have been. His smile is beautiful :)

  3. Reddog sure had a wonderful life... 14 years for a sharpei is like 100 hooman years, you know what I mean... we are blessed to have caring hoomans with us.

  4. We knew a greyhound whose people made her a special wagon to ride around in after she survived cancer treatment because she still loved to go out for walks so much! That story reminded us of her.
