They DO remember!! My dad lived with us when we got our current pup Dalai 15 months ago. She was only 8 weeks old and dad remained with us until our move to NC last April. Dalai was only 10 months old when we moved. He came for a visit in September and Dalai didn't leave his side the entire time. The day he arrived, she was wild with excitement and spent the entire afternoon in his lap. Dogs are such devoted companions.

Many years ago I heard a story of a dog who was adopted out and the former owner was walking on the sidewalk toward the dog (w/ its new owner) and the dog rem'd its old owner. Wish I could remember more details but it was a long time ago, I think the dog was w/ the new owner for several years, I imagine their short reunion was bittersweet for all. Sure they remember ;-)

I recently gave my dog to a new home recommended by my vet due to my illness. My illness is fixed, and it has been about six weeks. I have humbled myself considerably and pleaded to them to let me have the dog back. I knew her from before birth to 17 months. They have had her about five to six weeks. They are not relenting and angry with me for asking. I gave her, not sold her, and now that I have a hope of living many more years, I want my girl back, but I think I have no way to do it. Please help if you can with ideas. I have written and called without being harrassing, been very kind to them.

That pic is SO CUTE!!! They are certainly vicious beasts! Thanks for posting!

Barbij: That's a tough situation. Even though you didn't "sell" her, after 6 weeks I'm sure her new owners have grown attached to her. I feel for you, but I can understand them not wanting to give her back. I'm sure they went into it thinking they were making a committment to the dog for her life, which is a GOOD thing.
