Always major sorrow when a loved pet passes. One of the reasons I chose not to have one… and I hate stepping in dog shit!

Does the missus barking to me… go to the shop, dog… qualify?

Unlike Grumpy… I’m partial to a pussy.

Nice looking dog. I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your last shop helper. I know a new dog doesn’t replace a lost one, but they definitely have a way of enriching your life.

My shop dog passed 15 years ago. He would follow me anywhere and especially liked the shop. He would lay there and get covered with saw dust. He acted like it was his quiet time and would take a nap. Until we came upstairs and the wife would see all the sawdust, then we both ran.
The dog we have now has nothing to do with the shop. The closest he’s ever came to the shop was looking in by the door. When you turn on a power tool he runs for it. LOL.

I can’t remember any time in my life where we didn’t have at least one dog, and can’t imagine not having one. For those who have lost theirs – and think it’s too painful to get another, just think of what a difference you made in their life, and what the alternative could had been for them had they not found you. There are plenty more out there looking for you.

Cheers,
Brad

This is Gracie. She is a 5 year old English Creme Golden Retriever. I would like to say she is my shop dog, but in reality, she is too much of a princess. She comes in to see me and whatever friends I have in there, but leaves right away. I don’t know if it’s too loud or a lack of padding from the sofa or bed…...She is a very good girl but has zero athletic ability. She is our third Golden. All the others have been very athletic, running, jumping and catching a ball. Gracie is clumsy, falls sometimes when she runs, and can’t even catch food. WTH? They say that is typical of English cremes or often called European Goldens. All that said, I think we might get another…..maybe this one could come out to the shop while Gracie stays in with her Mom.

We’ve had several dogs and cats that would visit the shop. Our present one will venture in but just to insure that all’s well. Then she meanders out.
Had a tiger striped cat that loved the shop. He’d sleep on the bench until I went to the table saw. He’d wait until I was ripping, then he jump from the bench to my shoulder. Then, he’d stay there, licking my ear. The first time he did that, it gave me a start. Got used to it, though.

Here’s mine after stealing my Texas A&M blanket. She’s my little buddy and is to smart for her own good. We have taught her to recognize words that are spelled out during conversation. She knows about 40 words. I will tell anyone who tries this that it is a mistake to do. Once they learn there is no going back and spelling out words like ride,shop,outside etc is useless. It’s funny to watch the in laws spell out words she knows forgetting she knows them. Then she responses accordingly like r.i.d.e she goes to her harness and sits down and looks at it then whoever spelled it then back and forth until they complete their side of the command. I love my little buddy and would do anything to help her and she does the same for me.

Mine stalks squirrels. By stalk I mean set up a half blind with sticks and use the grill for body cover (to smart)then full speed out of the blind after them. It’s fun to watch ,she’s not allowed to touch the fence so she just runs down it. She could snag one off the fence if she would to have the fence.

We looked for a couple years for a dog and when I held her I knew she was the one.

My best shop dog is Kiddoo who sleeps under the table I have my miter saw mounted to (on some blanklets to keep her comfortable). She will be 12 in January

Our younger one gets bored but will settle, typically right by me (she just turned 2) – right by my shop stool

My current two: an 11 yr old black pug Sumo and a 4 yr old rat terrier Sweet Pea. This pic is a couple of yrs old, Sumo has much more gray and is going blind. His time is near, and he will be replaced. I have had many dogs over my lifetime and will continue to replace them. Yes it hurts, they do become family members, but I have great memories of all of them.” ‘Tis better to have loved and lost than to have never loved”. They are great conversationalists – they listen so much better and don’t talk back much.

My sister lives in Owen Sound and we would take our dog Merlin up there. Sarge is the white Goldendoodle in the back. He passed away in the spring at 13 1/2, Merlin passed away in the summer at 12 1/2. I miss them both.

Thanks,

They were so funny, there was so much snow one year, my brother in law had to make a path with little cut out sections for the dogs to use, so Sarge would go and routinely pee on each spot and Merlin would have to follow and neutralize the spots after him.
