    A Dog Named Beau

    He never came to me when I would call
    Unless I had a tennis ball,
    Or he felt like it,
    But mostly he didn't come at all.

    When he was young
    He never learned to heel
    Or sit or stay,
    He did things his way.

    Discipline was not his bag
    But when you were with him things sure didn't drag.
    He'd dig up a rosebush just to spite me,
    And when I'd grab him, he'd turn and bite me.

    He bit lots of folks from day to day,
    The delivery boy was his favorite prey.
    The gas man wouldn't read our meter,
    He said we owned a real man-eater.

    He set the house on fire
    But the story's long to tell.
    Suffice it to say that he survived
    And the house survived as well.

    On the evening walks, and Gloria took him,
    He was always first out the door.
    The Old One and I brought up the rear
    Because our bones were sore.

    He would charge up the street with Mom hanging on,
    What a beautiful pair they were!
    And if it was still light and the tourists were out,
    They created a bit of a stir.

    But every once in a while, he would stop in his tracks
    And with a frown on his face look around.
    It was just to make sure that the Old One was there
    And would follow him where he was bound.

    We are early-to-bedders at our house -- I guess I'm the first to retire.
    And as I'd leave the room he'd look at me
    And get up from his place by the fire.
    He knew where the tennis balls were upstairs,

    And I'd give him one for a while.
    He would push it under the bed with his nose
    And I'd fish it out with a smile.
    And before very long He'd tire of the ball

    And be asleep in his corner In no time at all.
    And there were nights when I'd feel him Climb upon our bed
    And lie between us,
    And I'd pat his head.

    And there were nights when I'd feel this stare
    And I'd wake up and he'd be sitting there
    And I reach out my hand and stroke his hair.
    And sometimes I'd feel him sigh and I think I know the reason why.

    He would wake up at night
    And he would have this fear
    Of the dark, of life, of lots of things,
    And he'd be glad to have me near.

    And now he's dead.
    And there are nights when I think I feel him
    Climb upon our bed and lie between us,
    And I pat his head.

    And there are nights when I think I feel that stare
    And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair,
    But he's not there.
    Oh, how I wish that wasn't so,

    I'll always love a dog named Beau.

    [Video] A Florida dog put a car into reverse and drove it in circles for nearly an hour
    A Florida dog put a car into reverse and drove it in circles for nearly an hour

    Anne Sabol’s cul-de-sac in Port St. Lucie, Florida, is fairly quiet.

    Well, it was, until a dog hopped in its owner’s running car, kicked it in reverse, drove in circles for an hour and smashed a neighbor’s mailbox before safely exiting the vehicle without so much as a scratch.

    But Sabol didn’t know who was behind the wheel when she first spotted the car, whirling around the block like an inept student driver might.

    “At first I thought I saw somebody backing up, but then they kept going, and I’m like, ‘Ok, what’re they doing?'” she told CNN affiliate WPBF.

    But then the cops came, then the fire department. Authorities watched from a distance as the driving dog did donuts.

    Finally, the vehicle stopped, and Sabol saw a large black Labrador retriever hop out of the driver’s seat.

    Video shows a man rescuing neighbor's dog after its leash got stuck in elevator doors
    Video shows a man rescuing neighbor's dog after its leash got stuck in elevator doors - CNN

    A man saved his neighbor's dog after its leash got caught in an elevator door on Monday and their apartment security cameras captured the rescue.

    Johnny Mathis, 27, was coming home from work in Houston, Texas and had just parked his car in his apartment complex's underground garage. Mathis lives on the ground floor of his community so he took the elevator up to his floor. As soon as he got off, a woman and her dog were trying to get on.

    "When she got on, I was looking at the dog, because it was a cute dog," Mathis told CNN. "I noticed the leash was kinda long but I didn't think it wasn't going to make it on the elevator or anything."

    In the 39-second clip Mathis posted on Twitter, you see him leaving the elevator but quickly coming back to pick up the Pomeranian once he saw the owner was gone and it was still stuck there alone.

    Got my boy about 1.5 year ago not only as a family pet but as a hiking companion, stone daft and absolute lump of a dog for a lab at 40kg's.

    Sweet Emma passed away this early morning. Emma was so loved. We are heart broken, but knowing she is at peace helps. The picture was taken just last night. ILY

    More to say later. She was with us for only a short while. She came to us while I was walking my other dogs.
