Top 10 Dog Tributes

Updated on April 29, 2015

In Loving Tribute to Many Dogs

When starting out as the angel in the Dog neighbourhood it never struck me how passionately most squids who have pets are about them until I read these stories. If they don't bring a tear to your eye or a glow to your heart then you are not a pet owner.

Picking the top 10 in this category is a challenge in itself and I have put a poll at the bottom for you to vote on your favorite to help me out. You can also leave some comments in another module about what you feel as you read through them and vote on the statement you like the best.

Pictured is my little girl Mini, now 14 years old. Isn't she gorgeous?

In Love and Remembering Old and New Pets

The joy of owning a pet is increased enormously when we pay tribute to them here in Squidoo. With love, understand and gratitude the following lenses were written by the many who know what it is like to loose your heart to a furry friend.

Many pets have sadly passed on or are suffering terminal disease Some lenses are extremely touching, others share their love and humour. But all pets are part of the family and the grieving may continue as we remember. But there are others who pay tribute to their pets or even wild animals. They might be artists, handlers or carers who write with passion while spending their lives educating, training and being there for pets in need or otherwise.

      This is a really sweet lens, it's good to see all the dog tribute lenses in one place, and nicely done too. I have had a couple of really great dogs myself too. Blessed.

      Love this lens and hope it is an inspiration to others. Creating a tribute lens to your pet is a great tool to help in healing. Hopefully by getting some of these stories together in one place others will see this and add their stories to lens in the future. Thank you so much for including my lens honoring Morgan. Hugs....Joanie and Morgan and Subtle.
