One thing I find interesting? ADV riders seem to have in common is the love for their pets and life. I have no real tangible evidence but I would say many of us who ride have dogs. Having said that want to find my soft spot? Loving my dogs and then having to say good bye. I work in an industry where death and dying happens everyday. Human beings I mean. I cope with that professionally but I feel that perhaps witnessing all that pain and suffering comes out in me when I lose a dog.
“I was on my way to the funeral with my mom,” Bitney told HuffPost Live in the above clip, “and I received a phone call from one of his relatives letting me know that if I tried to show up his father and uncle were going to attack me… I know that grief can cause people to do things they wouldn’t normally do. But I never imagined that [his mother] would try to erase me from existence.”
What can you say about dogs? Well, before moving to Canada I, meaning Leslie was a cat person. Since meeting Cheryl we have a house full of dogs now. Large, medium and small in size and all have such different personalities. I can never imagine our lives without a dog now. Some say they unconditionally love you. I disagree. They love you if you care for them and love them back. The condition is just respect and mutual affection.

We hope you find the joy in these pics, the sadness and devotion both man and dog have for one another. Each tells its own story! Continue reading “DOGS!”
