When I pictured what kind of dog I wanted to get, there were a few special dogs I've known that stuck in my head as "perfect pets"...because of their unique combination of personality, size, love for people, the way they run, sleep, have dreams...just the awesome love they have for life.
Today I found out that one of my favorite all-time dogs has passed on. He lived a long and happy life in the mountains of Colorado with a family who loved him like crazy. He hosted lots of people like me at his home, always graciously sharing his couch with us all. Bacchus loved running and playing and he knew how to work it when it came to treats....for everyone!
He easily makes my top 5 dog list as one of the best tempered, most fun and loving animals I've had the pleasure of knowing. I know that lots of you reading this remember Bacchus (Mr. Wonderful, Senor Fabuloso, Bucket, etc) as an A+ dog. Lets all raise a glass tonight in memory of this loving friend.
My thoughts are with the Owen family. Thanks for sharing your awesome animals always.
One last note: Bacchus is my dog Sawdust's "Dog Father" and carries on his love for pizza and "action dreams".
