   Leave a bone for Homer - RIP 1998-2009

Homer, Homie, Homeslice, the best dog, buddy

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

April 1st 1998

His mama and biscuits.

Squirrels and any mention of a b-a-t-h. He also hates the word "stinky" as it is associated with the dreaded 'b-a-t-h.'

Favorite Toy:
Frisbee, stuffed groundhog, kong, and the cat.

Favorite Food:
Pizza and raw carrots. Toast crusts in the morning.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere off leash. Delaware Park on Saturday and Sunday. Chasing squirrels up the trees in the neighborhood.

Best Tricks:
Walking himself - he carries his own leash! High-fives, and getting the newspaper every morning.

Arrival Story:
Homer was the best dog in the whole world. He was being raised on a farm in WNY, living in an outdoor stall in the barn with his 8 brothers and sisters, where his mother was supplementing the puppies' food with wild-caught animals. He was covered in mange and smelled awful when we brought him home.

Homer was a bone-a- fide dalbrador (or labmatian). He is the most amazing dog. He has a terrific vocabulary (over 100 words that he knows well!) and is the most handsome, dignified and well behaved dog. He carries his own leash when we go for walks and is known and loved throughout the neighborhood. When we walk down the street, people driving by roll down their car windows and call 'Hello' to Homer. Homer is getting older now and has some trouble with his knees, so we have to limit his frisbee time, but he still loves to play.

Homer's Diary

We had to put Homer down unexpectedly yesterday (July 9, 2008). He fell and broke his femur in his left leg on Wednesday night and they determined that it was due to bone cancer on Thursday morning. There is no cure for that, and his leg could not be fixed. He died peacefully, with his mom and dad by his side.

Homer was my best friend. I will miss him greatly.

"Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made." ~Roger Caras

I was Love Tagged by Barney - a good pal of mine who had surgery just like me and who is beautiful and has recovered nicely!! I send the love right back to him!

Here are the rules:
Pick 3 dogsters you think are really pawriffic and paw a little about why & let them know how much they are loved with a rosette or a p mail!

Besides Barney, I would like to tag Iggy, who is a spectacular fellow and who has also suffered through orthopedic sugrey and come out on top! He has a terrific spirit and zest for life.

I would also like to tag Angus, a GREAT great dane, who also went through knee surgery and recovered so well! He competes in agility now and doesn't seem to have any problems at all. What a beautiful big dog!

One more dog I'd like to tag - Rudi. He had his knee worked on, too and is in recovery. What a gorgeous coat you have, Rudi! We hope you are up and running soon.

My buddy Barney tagged me, so I will write the rules down;

I get to choose 7 of my pals to tag. Here are the rules I was given for the game: Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a p-mail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

Here are 7 facts about me:

1) I was born in a barn.
2) I love frisbees, but I can't play with them anymore.
3) I have had both of my back knees operated on.
4) I went for a swim in Science Lake at Allegany State Park this weekend.
5) Squirrels are my favorite thing to chase.
6) Nobody but me messes with my sister Sophie. I mean nobody.
7) l am a Momma's boy through and through.

I tag:
6.Madelyn Louise
7. Homer

Have fun!
