BALL,BALL,BALL and Mommy!!!

Cats, men in hats, loud television commercials.

Favorite Toy:
BALL, only ball. He did like the occasional bone to chew on.

Favorite Food:
ANYTHING EDIBLE! Rotten chicken, glass, a whole lemon, 2 pounds of chocolate,dried worms, garbage, you name it, he'd eat it. So fast you'd miss it go in.

Favorite Walk:
He loved to walk anywhere...he liked Mission Bay in San Diego and he loved to just walk the neighborhood when we lived in Northern California.

Best Tricks:
Uppies, sit,stay,lay down and be cute.

Arrival Story:
He was found at the Dog Beach Dog wash in Ocean Beach San Diego. He was sick, had terrible eye infections, cuts, bruises and more and was scared. We put up signs, but it became clear that his "owner" had severely abused him. So... about a week later, he was on meds and recuperating, his "owner" found me walking him down the street. As soon as the guy approached me and Diggz, Diggz cowered on the ground shaking. I told the guy he'd have to go through me to get this dog back. It took a few to convince him to not even TRY to take my boy back.....but he got it. So....I got my sweet baby boy.

Apparantly, he was born in Minnesota, and was driven out to California in a motorhome when he was about 1. He came into my life shortly thereafter. To Diggz: Diggz my darling love, you were my best friend for over 13 years. Since the day I found your scraggly arse behind the dog wash just looking for someone to love you forever. Those chocolate eyes so mournful, your black and white spotted coat almost solid brown. A little soap and water revealed the most handsome Dalmatian/Lab there ever was. You were with me in the darkest days of my life and later in the most happiest days, always faithful, always a friend. You were such a stoic boy, so proud, so handsome. People would stop their cars and pull over just to say how cool you were, and you were Diggz, you were so very cool. I'd have done just about anything to have you with me forever and ever and when you died I was heartbroken. But I realized that you were in fact with me and have been everyday since. In my heart, alive in memories. I thank you my handsome boy for sharing yourself with me all those years and giving me such tremendous joy. For licking the tears from my face when I was sad, making me laugh when I was mad and never failing to greet me each and everyday with a smile. I love you still and always will.

Forums Motto:
Where's the Ball at?

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone, Silence the pianos and with muffled drum Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come... He was my North, my South, my East and West, My working week and my Sunday rest, My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song; I though that love would last forever: I was wrong. The stars are not wanted now: put out every one; Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun; Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood. For nothing now can ever come to any good. ~W.H. Auden

3 years ago today you went to the Bridge my sweet boy and I have missed you every day since. And I always will. You'd have loved your little sis Birdy, she's a ham. You'd have kept her in check.

I miss your crazy tail that you'd swing around and around in wild circles of joy!!!!

I hope you are free and having fun at the bridge with all the loving wonderful doggies that are there with you.

I love you my sweet boy, so very much.

2 years ago today you left us to go to the Bridge.

I miss you so much Diggz. You were such an angel. And now you really are. I love you more than words my best buddy. I am sending you hugs and kisses and all my love.

Birdy says Hi. So does Daddy, he misses you so much too.

We talked about you today how much we miss your smile, your giggle inspiring farts and your mesmerizing chocolate brown eyes that you used to your advantage on many an occasion.

Thank you so much for blessing me for 13 years, for giving me such perfect unconditional love and for standing beside me through the good and the bad. I will love you forever.

2 years and I can still feel you here beside me. I always will.

Love you big boy.

16 years ago I came around the corner of the Dog Beach Dog Wash and saw the most sad face I had ever seen. Dirty, hurt, sick and tired, you looked at me with those chocolate eyes and you grabbed my heart with all your might. You had it then and you have it now.

And except for the "handmade Christmas chocolate baskets" incident of '94, you were the best dog a girl could have.

You were there to lick the tears from my cheeks when I was sad and there to make me smile when I was mad. You made me laugh everyday and brought joy to all those who knew you.

You stood at my side when I married your "Daddy" and I think I saw you wink. You were there through so many important chnages in my life, steadfast and always strong.

You gave to me a best friend, a cuddle buddy and a foot warmer on those cold winter nights. I confidant, a sounding board and a walking partner. You took care of me when I was sick and ran at my side when I was well.

Mr. Diggz, my silly bean, I miss you so very much right now.

You'd have loved Birdy very much, she reminds me of you, you know, that selective hearing thing. BOL.

I'm glad I was there with you when you went to The Bridge, and that the last words you heard were that we loved you so very much.

We do, your Daddy and I, Diggz we still love you very much.

I hope there IS a Bridge, and that you are there with an endless supply of tennis balls and steaks.

Hugs baby boy.
