Remembering Dodge (December 12, 1997 – March 1, 2010)

Today is the anniversary of Dodgy’s passing. Four years ago today I lost my “road trip buddy.” As noted in My Spirit Dogs – Part 2, Dodgy went everywhere with me after Maggie & Harry passed. He got so spoiled because we spent his next 10 months road-tripping — not very far, mind you, but every trip out was an adventure for him, even if it was just to run errands. Speaking of running errands, one day I just had to run to the post office and naturally Dodge came with me. We were gone all of 15 minutes and when I pulled back into the garage and opened the back of my truck, Dodgy refused to budge. He just laid there and looked at me. He would not get out of the truck! He was demanding a longer ride. So silly he was. I know he’s up there in the heavens now, riding the winds and lovin’ every second of it!

My Roger-Dodger, my big Lug-Nut, how I miss you! Remembering you today…and every day.

    • Thanks for reading my post Shari! And especially thanks for leaving a comment. Going to go over and check yours out tomorrow. About to fall asleep here now 🙂


  1. Hi, Michele!

    I see this is a repost from 2014. I am so sorry you lost your road trip buddy Dodge, gone eight years now. That’s a funny story about dodge holding out for a longer ride in your truck. You collected some excellent pictures of him over the 12+ years he shared his life with you. It will soon be five years since I lost my Toto. I think about her and miss her every single day.

    Thank you for remembering your precious hound Dodge, dear friend Michele!

    • Hi Tom,
      Wow, how did you happen upon this post? What a surprise. Dodgy was a trip. He’s was a good boy. Very lovable. A big lug! I wish we would’ve had 12 years together. I adopted him when he was 2 or 3. I can’t remember exactly the date we got him. Dodge visits me often in my dreams and I’m always so happy to see him when he does!

      Re: your Toto: you know she’s with you every day all the time. Not only do they continue to live on in our hearts but their precious spirits hangs around watching over us.
