Melon Man was sitting watching some television tonight before he left to go to work and can you believe this dog? He just climbed right up on the sofa and sat there like a human watching tv and being close to Daddy. He is just the sweetest dog ever. We love him so much! It's hard to think that his little life is about 1/2 over. Since he's part lab and presumably part great dane, he will only likely live about 9 to 11 years. It will be very hard on me when he dies. He's my shadow...constantly by my side, especially when Melon Man is at work. He's so loving and tender, but fun too. He's a crack up but gentle. I love you, Dog!
