Clancey - One Beautiful Dog

This is a picture of Clancey, our Irish Setter back when I was in high school and college. Clancey and I were down at the spillway between Spring Lake and Forest Lake in Columbia SC, and he had been for a swim. I have no idea what he was looking at.

I can relate to the one stanza of Mr. Bojangles, except I guess I would have to say "after thirty years." Clancey was a great dog.

Of Mr. Bojangles, the song says:

"He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
throughout the south
He spoke through tears of 15 years how his dog and him
traveled about
The dog up and died, he up and died
And after 20 years he still grieves"

I like pet dog very much. It is sad that there are so many people that don’t realize that, that cute puppy in the window came from a sad, sick, never been loved, tired mother behind bars! Both of my boys were adopted and I have taken in a few stray kittens.

Such a pity that so much dog politics can get in the way of 'pure' dog appreciation! All this info sounds a little familiar to some of what I have read about Schipperkes and the national shows that occur here. Both my dogs are tail-less, (not born that way!) because of the 'standard', I asked if my first dog, just a couple of weeks old then, if they would leave her tail insitu, but apparently they took it on day 3 of her life. Such a shame! Now of course this is illegal and Schipperkes are allowed to keep their tails, and such cute little tails they are! The Border Collie is such a gracious and stunning looking animal.

I love it. Our mom tells us stories about past pets and stories about us all the time. Usually it is when we are out walking (where we are alone so no one has Mom sent to a psych ward), but she feels that it is good for us to hear her tell us stories about past pets as well as ourselves. We like to listen but never comment.

My favorite animal is a dog. I have seen truth in their eyes, love for their owners. And that is enough for me to bring a Pomeranian in my house. I have been living with my dog very happily.
