    I don't currently have a picture of him on my computer, he has actually passed though. He was in too much pain from cancer in his shoulder, so we had to euthanize him. He could barely walk without yipping in pain. It was a very sad time for us. I actually cried so much when he was gone. I went to the vet with him and held on to him until the very last second and then I broke down. I'll get off the sad topic though.

    He had an awesome personality. He was part Chow Chow and part Samoyed, which was nice because then he didn't have the pushed in face that pure bred Chow Chow's have. Whenever we would walk across the kitchen with food, he would start doing what we would call "the bear dance." Since he was so hairy, he could've been comparable to a bear. But he would stand up on his hind legs and actually hop around the kitchen. It was so adorable. He was a very laid back type of dog. He especially enjoyed chasing bunnies in the back yard.

    Actually, yes he did catch some of the bunnies. It was pretty horrible clean up, but at least he had fun. I will always remember him and it's horrible because I feel like I try to compare any other dog to him, even though all dogs have their own personalities.

    I sometimes compare some dogs to our previous dogs but usually it was just part of remembering them seeing other dogs.
    Harry seems to be really energetic chasing those bunnies and fun to be with.

    Well dkramarczyk if you are still into dogs as is apparent from your postings on this forum I suggest a collie cross. They are a fabulous breed and going from your profile photo you have children, this breed will not bite or injure your kids as Harry may have from your description of his interest in bunnies. How did you cope?

    Sad stories aside. Losing a dog can be devastating. I've experienced it myself. I'm pretty sure Harry had a great life with you.

    I can relate to the bear dance. Some dogs will do anything to be fed. One of my dogs thought that because the puppies were fond of jumping at me, they were being fed more often than he was. So now, he is imitating what they are doing thinking that I am feeding him because he's trying his best to be cute and adorable when in fact he was on the right track when he didn't do the jumping.

    Since argon_0 mentioned it, do you have another dog?
