Janis Joplin*


Janis Joplin, originally uploaded by bbum.

Just the sweetest old dog.
One of the best I've known.
She lived her life fully -
Usually with a frisbee close at hand.
We had the pleasure of having her live
up the street from us for several years...
Just fell in love with her during that time.
~
She loved her people and was loved by many more
Rest in peace, my furry friend,
Rest in peace!
~
Janis Joplin*
1996-2009

    Take it!
    Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!
    Oh, oh, break it!
    Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    Oh, oh, have a!
    Have another little piece of my heart now, baby,
    You know you got it if it makes you feel good,
    Oh, yes indeed."
    RIP, JJ

  12. I love that all of the people commenting understand the importance of our furry friends. When they pass there is a loss. Keep on barking JJ. Maybe you and your namesake can make sweet music together now.

  18. Beautiful dog. Loss of dogs always make me sad. My mutt was born in 1996. He has a little Border Colllie in him. I wonder about his lifespan. In the past year he's really started to show age.
