    Here is my pup. He is a holy terror but what he gives out in unconditional love more than makes up for anything stupid he may do.



    And doing a little gif jig, ok more like headbanging to the music coming from the shop:

    Two adorable puppies!!!! And Sam, I am sorry for your loss. Some of my greatest losses of this life were from the death of furry loved ones.

    More adorable pups! Thank you all for sharing!

    Just because it needs repeating, National Black Dog Day is a VERY important day. Not only to highlight cute dogs, it main reason is to bring awareness to the plight of black dogs. The second link in my original post goes to an article that explains this well. I will paste it below for the click lazy:

    "Did you know statistics show that black dogs are among the first to be euthanized at crowded animal shelters? Did you know that black dogs are among the last to be adopted?
    That's one of the reasons National Black Dog Day was started: to bring awareness to the plight of black dogs.
    We have three black dogs at home: two pugs, Lillian Mae and Veronica Pearl; and a Shlab (Shar-Pei/Lab mix), Betsey. Both Lilly and Pearl came from kill shelters where they were days away from euthanasia. Indeed, Lilly was two days over, but her dark color may have saved her as she was curled in the back of the kennel. She was pulled from Etowah County's shelter by Peace Love & Dog Paws animal rescue, and we adopted her.
    Pearl, meanwhile, was at the Terrebonne Parish (La.) Animal Shelter, and my wife, after seeing a photograph, adopted her long distance. Pearl was at Dallas-Fort Worth Pug Rescue for a few months before coming to us. She's a special-needs pug who will soon have her own set of wheels.
    According to the official National Black Dog Day website, the day was started because "too often, black dogs are overlooked because of many stigmas such as; the color black is evil (the same stigma that cats have), black dogs do not show up as well in photographs as muti-colored or light colored dogs and black dogs look scary and intimidating because you cannot see their facial expressions as easily ... This special day is devoted to creating public awareness about these beautiful, shiny fur babies that offer just as much unconditional love as any other dog and deserve just as much love back. ... Please adopt a black dog and show the world how much light they have inside and out!" "

    I never knew people had a "prejudice" against the color of a dog. Thanks for sharing that.

    A lot of people don't. Hence why I feel it is important to get the word out. I am a weird one who appreciates my time spent with dogs probably more than I do with other humans. If only we as humans could love as they do.

    I must have missed the memo,I've had three dogs as an adult, all black shelter dogs. A black chow / border collie mix, a rottie / shepherd, and my current Aussie / Border collie.
