I am the Pupster Dog

In honor of our beloved Spike (01/??/2002 - 08/22/2011)

As many of you may know I am a Radio-head— and being such I tend to make up my own lyrics to popular songs.

I must admit that our Dog inspired many songs— one of which I will attempt to convey to you so you have a better understanding of how special he was.

If you are familiar with the Smurf's Theme Song, then you can sing along with the lyrics to one of Spike's Theme Song:

I am the Pupster Dog
the Pupster Diddle Dog

I am the Pupster Dog
the Pupster Diddle Dog

My wife took this song one step further by singing it in the style of Doris Day— which gave it a sultry yet funny quality.

We both will miss our companion. I do not know of any other pet who has inspired so many different songs and nicknames. Our pack feels a bit emptier now and we'll just have to remember all the things that he did to inspire us to keep us going.

I have collected some pictures of Spike so that you can look at them and perhaps see how great a dog he is to us:

Even though a picture is worth a thousand words, no words can express our grief.

My heart aches for you. That was a great dog (it's pretty obvious). I am so sorry for your loss. When we lose a dog, it's a loss of a member of a family, but he will forever live in your memories and great photos!

Awww. I'm a dog person too. We have two mutts and a chihuahua.

I'm sorry. It hits harder than one would expect.

*woof, woof*

In honor of your Spike.
