Thank you.

My dad is really upset, he cried (so did my mom). Then my dad said "Who's going to keep me company now? That boy always stayed with me. Now I'm alone."

and then when he was at the kitchen table, the puppy, Dulcinea, went into his bedroom and settled down to wait for him just like Sarge used to always do.

Sometimes I think dogs are too good for us

 

They are. But they've hitched their wagon to ours, they love us and they need us and they love needing us.

Sometimes we come through. A handful of us go above and beyond.

But too many times we've failed them. But that's the thing about dogs, they are always ready to forgive us, give us another chance, and always ready to love us still.

By some stroke of providence we were given the best companions, the best friends, the best comfort and in a lonely universe we are not alone. Something I am amazed by and grateful for more and more the older I get.

So the simple conclusion is humans collectively just have to be better to them and do better by them.

would like to petition the hive mind for some decent lady dog names ... something in the venn overlap of “people” names and something cool and not totally basic/normie. bonus points for references to badass genre characters/and or political radicals

Well said, and my sincerest condolences.  Sorry so late.

My go-to is Penny.  SHE MUST LIVE ON.  I think Leia or Sasha are good names too.  As are Ari (Ariel) or Jazz (Jazmine), depending on the breed.  But now I think I might just be naming strippers even though I hate strip clubs.  Sorry.

Congrats!  Couldn't name my dog something that will be Jo, he/she'd get too confused with me yelling at the television in the morning.

You end up calling your dog something that sounds like their real name? :o

I think that ended up happening twice, both times whilst in was a teen.

 

ETA:

Rimsky => Ruff (dunno how, it was before I could talk)

Tasha => Mustache => Mo / Muzz

Bobby => King Bob / Bobbadog

Kea => Kea

Kaimai => Kaiser => Bill

Pippa => Pipsqueak => Squeaker => Jiffy

Grace => Gru

Harvey => Harvey Dent => Arthur Dent => Arthur => Wartdog / 42

Guinness => Goo

Talisker => Tiddler / Taddles / Toodles
