JohnnyB.... I got your trophy dude.

That was a pretty good banquet. The roast was good, the slide show was good, the food was good, and my 3 and 1/2 hour drive home sucked.

Johnny, REALLY sorry to hear that.

I had to endure the same situation not long ago, I am going to apologize in advance for bringing a tear to anyone's (everyones) eyes. THIS is the best tribute to Dog I have ever read.

sorry for your loss brother.

"... the best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son and daughter that he has reared with loving care may become ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him when he may need it most. Man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees and do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our head.

The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his DOG. A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground,where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wing and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an outcast into the cold, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard him against danger, and to fight against his enemies. When the last scene of all comes, and death takes his master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws and his eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death."

-Senator George Vest, 1870

Sorry for your loss John.
My male is now ten y/o (above the breed average). Going to face this soon too. Sucks.

Thanks everyone...Bonnie will miss you all too. She loved vistors in the pits. She even met Champ's pup once.

This winter would have been hell for her.

Going to have to add another tiny R.I.P. date on my Clever Dog stickers.

In tribute...here is a movie of the original Clever Dogs (Elvis and Bonnie) taking part in a test run down the street...note that they are faster than the bike. Good sound so turn it up. Watch the far side of the road for the blazing fast dogs.

Sever is slow...might be best to right click and download before viewing.

Cool Vid JB.
I liked how you could see the dogs flash by while you could hear you coming down the street.
They were racing you, no doubt.

GODSPEED BONNIE
