It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Bart - A Better Day

Thanks to heavy drugs, Bart had a better day today. But the vet says he'll be up and down for the next couple of weeks. Each day is a gift. It is a relief to see him more comfortable and interested in life again. Today he had a nice little walk in the yard and was able to eat some small meals again.

His favorite place is with me in my home office. 

Today he rested comfortably on his bed while I worked.

Thanks to Denali's tailoring skills during her puppyhood, none of our many dog beds have covers with working zippers. Fortunately, Bart doesn't mind! He helped raise Denali so he knows what he's dealing with!

Wow, we've known you since not long after you brought Bart home...such a long time but so short when it's time with a friend.

That's right. Bart joined us in September 1997 and in August 1998 Miss Bouncy (a.k.a. Kenai) came home!

Bart has raised three puppies, considering that Elbee was only 1 year old, but hadn't seen anything of the world when she came to us! And of course Kenai never stopped being a puppy in so many ways.

He's been a very fine Alpha Dog.
