Bad to the Bone - A Celebration of Bogart Handsome Devil

Bogart spent his life in the public eye via this blog.  His little fuzzy mug insisted that we start this way back when he first arrived 11 years ago.  The idea of a dog with a blog was new territory back then, and a dog's blog from his own perspective?  Nobody else was doing it.  So with a crappy camera, a rudimentary knowledge of blogging software, and a dream, this blog was born.  We've captured almost every major (and minor) bit of Bogart's life for eleven years - and made friends around the world because of it.

Now that he's gone, it is an amazing resource for me to look back on, and smile.  That boy had THE LIFE.  And when it was time to put together a tribute video to celebrate his life, well, it was invaluable.  I have many thousands of photos and videos haphazardly saved amongst various hard drives, old computers, and flash drives, but the blog was a great source of photos from puppyhood all the way through his golden years.

And so this blog ends after 11 years of AIREdventures.  It's been a helluva ride.

I hope you will enjoy seeing this, cry a little, and smile at the badass adventures of Notorious BHD.

We will never forget Bogart. He was one of our first friends in Blogland.
Run fast and free and we sure hope there is a bountiful supply of twigs, branches, trees and forests at the Rainbow Bridge. xx

Dear Lulu. Yours was the first Airedale blog I found when I searched for information on how to cope with a then 1 year old Fletcher. Your photography, wit, whimsy and writing were so engaging. Though I didn't know the I grieved for you following the death of your partner and worried when you moved. I have missed Bogeys switch from pine cones to sticks. Glad you had him in your life. Fletcher died three weeks ago which is why I have been visiting Airedale sites in his memory. Lynn in Hamilton Ontario Canada
