    The worst thing to do with your backhoe

    Last week I had to use my backhoe to bury my dog Joey. He was a wonderful companion for me to the end. He will be missed for sure.

    Wow, that would be a difficult job to do Steve. I am very sorry for your loss. I know not everyone likes cats but we have 3 cats and life would not be the same at home without them. I have contemplated looking for a dog in the last year too. Joey reminds me of a dog that I had when I was growing up. Was he a chow/shepherd mix?

    I'm very sorry for you. The down side of pets is their shorter life. The up side is they pack so much joy into everyone's life while they are here. I'm sure you know this but I'll remind you that with time, the good memories will scour away the grief.

    Thanks for the replies guys,

    I found Joey after a long search in a no kill shelter in Los Angeles CA. Drove over to pick him up in Feb. 2006 expecting a young dog, got there and found out differently, he was about 5 years old. He had been in the shelter for over 3 years, made the decision to adopt him anyway as it appeared no one else was going to. So I had Joey for five wonderful years, he never caused me any problems, never made any messes or damaged anything. Rode shotgun with me often and guarded my trucks and premises starting with the first day on.

    Joey was a Husky Chow mix and was my second of this breed. Both of these were such good dogs I will be searching for another one, hopefully a puppy this time.
    Steve,
