Well I guess let me start from the start to properly explain the story.

My wife and I bought a house a couple of years ago and I wanted to get a dog right away. my wife was at the time not a dog person, except for really tiny dogs which I am not a big fan of -no offense to all you "tiny dog" owners . so we were at a stand still. I wanted a big dog, so I convinced her (a ketchup popsicle Richard? hope some one gets that joke) that big dogs aren't scary. we wanted a puppy that was something we agreed on, and we also wanted to rescue a dog. so we looked and looked and found a boxer-mastiff mix puppy in a shelter. we drove two and a half hours to get him. when we saw him we knew he was gonna be an awesome dog, and we dubbed him Hopkins, after "the lightin Hopkins" (I love music). for the two years that we were blessed to have him it was glorious. my wife fell in love with him and turned out to be a dog person. and of course as did I.

Now the hard part.
We had to put him down right at the start of the summer. it really messed me up, and my wife. we buried him at 7 in the morning on a sunday right before I had to work. animal lovers can understand the pain, it sucks!!!
I knew I wanted another puppy, my wife needed time so that's what was given. we talked about it and felt we were ready to get another one. so we looked and found one. we raced up the road picked him up last night!!!!!

here he is




he is a Catahoula leopard dog and his name is Sullivan

Sorry about the grammar I know some of you are sticklers for that

Great looking pup - congratulations!cheers cheers

Really, really hurts when you lose a dog. We have had dogs since we were married and I've always cried when they died - it broke my heart every time. They become such an integral part of your life.

BTW I get the Popsicle joke - over here it's normally referred to as the 'rocket' or 'lipstick'.

Losing a pet is losing a family member. As proof, some people put them down as dependents. After they get out, they and their pet walk the straight and narrow. Smile

As to self appoint forum police critiquing, tell'em where the sun don't shine. Nothing wrong with your writing that I can see. Pretty disgusting when they can cause anxiety that limits a member's sharing.

That is a beautiful little puppy. He looks to be a good pal. Scruffle his ears for me and enjoy him. Sorry to hear about the loss of your Hopkins.

Fine looking pup! Sorry for your loss of Hopkins. 

I came close to having to put my baby boy down just recently.  He has spinal stenosis just like I do...his x-ray looked a lot like mine.  He was "saved" from being put down by a fantastic vet and his pharmacist who came up with the answer...morphine for the dog.  Something called bupernorphine. He gets a little in the mouth and it worked instantly.  He is now dancing down the hallway to my complete and utter joy.  He is 16 and we rescued him as a pup from a real asshole (pardon my language, but there is no other way to put it).

I've had a number of rescue dogs...they are wonderful and great for your heart (until they go).

Long live your baby and enjoy him every day.

My heart always goes out to anyone that loses a pet. The new little guy is one FINE lookin' pup, though. I friend of mine has a Catahoula and she is one awesome, awesome dog. Just make sure you have work for Sullivan to do and/or get him out and about a lot - they are definitely "doers."
