Very sorry for you. I still miss the only dog I ever had. He died decades ago.

So sorry. The loss of a beloved pet can be very disheartening.

They stay with us for far too short a time.

Sorry, Pinotlvr...

Agree with Board-O. My last dog died ten years ago, and I still miss her. Get a puppy when the sad feelings wane. Nothing like a puppy licking your face to cheer you up.

Thanks all...and yes, no doubt, I'm sure there will be another in the future..might be good for wife's birthday in September. The house will seem pretty quiet now without Angel ruling the roost.

I thought I was a cat person for the longest time, but also realize I might not want to risk our leather furniture to cats. But there is certainly something special between a human and dog for sure!
Bad week for dogs. Our daughter took her grandmothers ( my wife's mom) dog when she died over two years ago. The dog died this week and it took our entire family back emotionally two years when mom/grandmother passed.

Our pets are truly part of the family in so many ways.

Pinot, sorry for your loss.

Yeah, no kidding. Condolences to his friends and family.

For me his most memorable performance was as The Elephant Man, but I also have a soft spot for his role as The Storyteller in the late 1980s Jim Henson TV series The Storyteller.

Within the last few months, I was flipping channels and found Mannix on some channel. It was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid, so I decided to watch a couple of episodes. A far cry from what is on TV these days, but I thought it actually held up fairly well. Fight scenes were a bit hokey looking, but overall it held up better than other series from that time that I've seen later in my adult life. And Joe Mannix was still cool.

I always loved everything I saw him in.

With all the great roles he played, I think it says something wrong about me that his one performance (other than Alien) that really sticks out in my mind was this one.

A talented actor who played a wide range of characters, but his giving birth on the table in Alien is the image I will retain of him.

War Doctor on Doctor Who
Ollivander in the Harry Potter movies

And his most apt role given current events - High Chancellor Adam Sutler in V for Vendetta

Having watched it when I was a small child, I would call it nightmare inducing more than heartfelt - but I don't disagree
For the second time in 6 weeks, a friend from what I call my "age-peer group". Most recently a former co-worker after being in the hospital 9 months with multiple ailments, and prior to that a friend of 28 years to her second war with cancer. One has a daughter in college, and the other left behind two in college. A good reminder to show appreciation for those you care about when you have the chance.

Yeah, it's definitely not a child's movie, more like young teen.

My mother Minette aka Mickey--88. What a ride she had. Never would have moved to CA if she hadn't "grown up" and left Chicago when she was 50. Also the reason I'm into art, film and reading.

Forget to mention there was one negative I inherited from her--Foot in Mouth Disease. Yes, it is apparently passed on in the genes!

I'm so sorry to hear this, and please accept our condolences. But I'm glad to hear that she lived a rich, full life!
