Chow was a good looking dog Chris! A wonderful image and a very sad story! #1465419

Poor Chow. I agree with John. She had a very sweet face. I am glad she got to stay in the family after your folks were gone. It's so sad losing our pets. I'm very sorry to hear this, Chris.

Love, Laura xo #10154614

What a sweet capture to remember Chow by, Chris! She got a lot of love for 17 years, first with your parents, then with your sister. And there's no doubt she gave just as much love in return.

When the sadness of losing her finally begins to lift, photos of Chow's happy, friendly face will bring her back to you and your family again and again...

Thanks for your comments on Chow's passing. She was a funny one, she really belonged to Dad, when he was no longer around she moved on to Mum & wouldn't let her out of the house, she'd stand behind Mum & hold on to her clothes so we couldn't take her out. Then she took over my sister & kept a close eye on her for the past 6 years, making sure she wasn't going to leave her. Many thanks to you all. #10158544

Thanks so much. Only the day before, there she was getting around the yard with the other dogs, wearing her little coat. #10160489

Very sad to hear that, Chris! What a beautiful dog & you captured the beauty wonderfully, my friened! #10163806

Kirsten Kiki Kjaer level-classic 5/31/2012 10:00:43 PM

What an adorable face and expression. What a great loss this must be, Chris. #10163951

Chris Ebben level-classic 5/31/2012 11:28:29 PM

Thanks Patrick & Kiki, Chow had lots of character, when she first came to live with my parents, she run along the back of the lounge & pull Mum's hair, then run back & sit next to Dad like she knew nothing about it. #10164021

You have a wonderful portrait to remember her by. It would be nice to have the picture in a photo book. You have great memories as she sounds very playful. #10165770

Ellen Hodges level-classic 6/3/2012 12:45:15 PM

Very cute capture of your family's little buddy, Chris!! You all made a great life for Chow! Sorry for your loss!!!! Funny, playful, story, too. #10167013

Chris Ebben level-classic 6/4/2012 4:14:10 PM

Thank you both. I have lots of funny stories about Chow, like after Dad passed away Chow really liked it when my cousin Glenda & her husband Johnny came to visit. Chow would sleep between them every-time, she never did that to anyone else. #10168317

Jorgen Jensen level-classic 6/6/2012 4:37:12 AM

Chow was a cute dog :-) #10170252

Ann Coates level-classic 6/9/2012 11:40:13 AM

So sad to hear about Chow. She certainly sounded like quite a character. It's never easy when they pass. A gorgeous capture of her Chris. #10174234

Jyri Vissak 6/9/2012 12:37:55 PM

Very cute! #10174250

Chris Ebben 6/10/2012 6:13:20 PM

Thanks so very much. #10175487

Debbie Bray 6/12/2012 5:00:00 AM

How terrible - 17 years old is a part of the furniture!! You really miss a pet after having them that long, you turn around, and they're not there. I bet there were some tears!! Cute capture of Chow. #10177287

Chris Ebben 6/12/2012 4:18:20 PM

Thanks Debbie. It was a very trying time, being sad at chow's passing away & putting on a brave face for the surprise party. #10177989

Avril Young level-classic 6/13/2012 7:56:37 PM

just so sad, such a darling face, wonderful to know that she was so loved and well cared for...but she will be forever in your hearts!! #10179445

Chris Ebben 6/16/2012 3:19:05 AM

Thanks Avril, we will all laugh when we talk about her, that's for sure. #10182230

Thomas E. Hinds 6/16/2012 6:43:32 AM

So sorry to hear about Chow, Chris! It is always difficult to lose such a friend. Chow was so fortunate to have lots of love around her. 17 years is a great life for a pup, though it seems way too short sometimes. #10182437

Chris Ebben 6/16/2012 3:33:52 PM

Thanks Thomas, you should have seen how she played on the floor with my cousin's Grandson who was in a wheelchair. She even crawled along on her belly to be down low like him. #10182983

Jill Odice level-classic 6/19/2012 8:53:46 AM

Sorry for your loss, She looked like a happy little dog! #10188929

Graham Robards level-classic 7/6/2012 7:26:39 AM

Oh Chris, this is so sad, very sad, to reach the grand old age of 17, far too short, our Bo who we recently lost was 171/2.
