I am saddened to report that on the night of Dec.20/2011 Max passed away peacefully and unexpectedly in his daddy's arms at the age of 14 1/2. You could see the confusion in Emmy as she went to bed in their crate alone . . .
Over the last few years Max even when exhausted demonstrated he was always up for more if it involved his people.
He was loved and he will be missed . . . Sad !!

Thanks guys.
Yes when you lose someone who was part of your life for 14 1/2 years and who taught you so much, you can't help to saddened. When Max was gotten, Lana had come into a small payout from her dad's insurance when he passed - she decided at that time I needed another Dachshund and the rest is a long friendship.
As humans with the lifespan of dogs we keep putting ourselves through the grieving process when they pass - but as Lana noted without these animals our lives would be empty.
As for Max while we were cuddling he gave a spasm and I didn'y even know he had passed - at least his last experience was being loved . . .

Nice picture with a very creative angle of view.

@mo
Thanks. I always liked dogs better than cats. But I always had the impression that cats like being photographed much more than dogs do.

@Olivier
He's actually a couch potato who sometimes likes to go out by himself for long runs in the country. But when he's not running (2-3 hours a day) he's on the sofa, sleeping. Anyway, it would be really hard to cut his nails, he doesn't like that very much.

That's right.
My dog always look elsewhere when he sees I want to photograph him...
Cats stare at the camera, wash themselves, surely to look handsome Smile

Apologies if I posted a picture of my pet before, I really can't remember.

This is Denis (yes, spelt with one N as he's named after Denis Law, the King of Old Trafford) my Chilean Fire Tarantula.

Pet is just a meter right from the tree.
That is why it's called BLACK russian terrier.
