S: Bach - Our Boxer Dog

FC: Bach

1: Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.” -Milan Kundera | Bach "Ba"- Balk "ch" - Buchholz Born June 15, 2004 Male Fawn Boxer

2: “A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” -John Grogan, Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog

4: "Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer.” - Dean Koontz, False Memory

5: “I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.” -John Steinbeck

6: Bach's First Birthday | The dog is the most faithful of animals and would be much esteemed were it not so common. Our Lord God has made his greatest gift the commonest. -Martin Luther

9: “Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.” -John Grogan, Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog

12: “If you don't own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life.” -Roger Caras | I believe in integrity. Dogs have it. Humans are sometimes lacking it.” -Cesar Millan

13: “Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place with curators in museums; others we take for walks.” - Roger Caras

14: Bach and Cooper | Cooper aka: Black dog, Coopy, Gray Beard | We would "borrow" Cooper to run off all the puppy energy. | Cooper and Bach - neighbors and friends.

15: “The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too.” -Samuel Butler | “After years of having a dog, you know him. You know the meaning of his snuffs and grunts and barks. Every twitch of the ears is a question or statement, every wag of the tail is an exclamation.” -Robert R. McCammon, Boy's Life

17: A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won't be too bad. -Robert Wagner

18: Billie Holiday's Grocery List: "cigarettes, gin, dog food."

19: Dogs have so many friends because they wag their tails, not their tongues. -Proverb | If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons. -James Thurber

20: I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive. -Gilda Radner | If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man. -Mark Twain

21: “A dog can express more with his tail in minutes than an owner can express with his tongue in hours.” - Karen Davison | "You can usually tell that a man is good if he has a dog who loves him.” - W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog's Journey

22: Bach's Surgery | Therapy

23: Acupuncture

24: “It's just the most amazing thing to love a dog, isn't it? It makes our relationships with people seem as boring as a bowl of oatmeal.” -John Grogan, Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog

25: "If dogs could talk it would take a lot of the fun out of owning one." - Andy Rooney | “The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.” - Charles de Gaulle

28: “No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish - consciously or unconsciously - that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown.” - Dean Koontz, A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog

29: "The dog's kennel is not the place to keep a sausage." - Danish Proverb | “Owning a dog is slightly less expensive than being addicted to crack.” - Jen Lancaster, Bitter is the New Black : Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smart-Ass, or Why You Should Never Carry a Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office : A Memoir

31: “A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down.” - Robert Benchley | “I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.” -Doris Day

32: “After years of having a dog, you know him. You know the meaning of his snuffs and grunts and barks. Every twitch of the ears is a question or statement, every wag of the tail is an exclamation.” - Robert R. McCammon, Boy's Life
