When my sister was a manager at Taco Bell she found him as a pup in the parking lot and brought him home. Even though he was a family dog he was Tammy's dog. When ever she was home he would shadow her every move and sleep in her room. We gave him about 12 years of good living. Sis nursed him and stayed by his side constantly his last month.
He loved to play even up to his last day. He was a touchy feely kind of dog, Always needing to be either laying next to or on some part of you.
He was a lot of fun too. Give him a squeaky plush toy and he would play for hours. He would go to his pile of toys and pull different ones out depending on his mood.
Every Christmas we would wrap a new toy for him and let him do the rest. He always looked for new toys when Sis brought home Pet Smart bags.
His favorite activity was playing fetch. He was one of the fastest dogs I have ever seen. He would play fetch until he was exhausted.
I miss him so much. I don't believe I can have another dog. Going through this hurt way too much.
