Devo - Everybody's Pal

It's been three years today since Devo lost his fight with cancer. I have to say that time (and Lady) have helped smooth the emotional rough edges of his departure. I still think about him every day. That's just how it is with our heart dogs. You all know what I mean, so I'll just get to the nostalgic pictures and say thanks to all our friends who stop by to see what's happening with Lady and/or what might have been on my mind that day. If you happen to have your speakers on, I'd like to thank Waylon and Roy for writing the perfect songs.

Shout out to Ben (the gentle one) and his peeps for turning me on to this wonderful observation by Cheryl Zuccaro.


“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.”
