My Treasured pet is no longer with me. He died 2 years ago on May 1st. I'm not posting this to make anyone sad or depressed but as a celebration of our little Fur-Boys life. His name was Doc and he was a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He had a beautiful black shiny coat with a white chest (like a tuxedo) and white tips on his front paws. A magnificent smile, beautiful gentle brown eyes, was an avid fan of licking everyone and was a very good soccer player. My son bought him home as a pup and he stole our hearts. My son taught him how to play soccer with a small hard rubber ball but he couldn't do it unless he had his Kong toy in his mouth at the same time. He would bat the ball to you and then it was your turn and he would talk to you until you returned the ball. He was the most beautiful soul I have ever encountered and I miss seeing him waiting at the top of the stairs for me when I return home. Unfortunately they are a much maligned breed but as every "Staffy" family will tell you they are very special and beautiful animals. Our "Staffy" was certainly loved dearly and returned our love a hundred fold. He loved everyone and even put up with being terrorised by my daughters black poodle "Sophie". He was so funny if you told him Sophie was coming he went and hid in the bedroom. Sophie is a toy poodle mind you!!
Doc is pictured with a dear family friend, in his "Queenslander" coat and with his beloved Kong toy.

I have had to post early as I have an early Yoga class. I'll be back later to meet your friends. Thanks Melody for the chance to share our special boy with you all.
Have a great day,
