Do you remember your first dog?

Tzumpi - Tzumpi is the first dog I remember. I loved him very much.

Hello, dog lovers. For everyone there was a "first dog". Maybe our love for dogs comes from this particular dog. For me, Tzumpi will allways be a special character of my childhood. He wasn't my dog, he was my grandparents dog, but I loved him a lot. Our love was mutual, he was allways so glad to meet me. He used to follow me everywhere. He died when I was 9, and then I promise myself I will allways have a dog close to my heart. What about your first dog? Would you like to share memories of this special dog for you?

In my memory, the first dog that I have was when I was really small dog. He looked huge at that time. And my only memory of him, I was once poo when he approached me. I was scare stiff and cried for help. He really looked huge then.

Your first memories about dogs don't seem very pleasant. I hope you aren't scared of dogs now, as they don't look huge to you any more.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your lost. I know how it feels when you loose a four legged friend. My beloved Nera passed away last December. Maybe now they play together in a happier place, where they don't suffer any more. Kowle, and Gheyske, and "Paduke", and Tzumpi...

You know, Katie, I think everybody loves the first dog. No matter it was pure breed or only a mongrel. As you have seen in the picture, Tzumpi was a white sweet mongrel, but it doesn't mean he wasn't loved.

Well, i still live with my first dog. I always want a dog when i was a kid, but never had one. When i grow up and start to live in a house it was one of the first things i did. She is really a lovely dog. Sometimes i wonder how will gonna be the things when she die, but i am sure i will gonna have more dogs.

Oh yes, I remember, when I was a child we used to have a dog named ewax. I don't remember her that much since I was a child back then. But I loved that dog that until now I could still remember her.

It is true, as a child, you don't keep so many memories. Only the most important things remain in memory. And the first dog seems to be such an important thing for a child. I don't remember many things from that age, but if I close my eyes I can see how me and Tzumpi used to run together, play together, jump over the fences together, eat together...

It is nice you still have your first dog with you. It seems to me that you and Vicky spend a lot of time together. I hope he eats from his own plate when you two eat Roti. lol I remember how I used to steal bread from my grandmother's kitchen to share it with Tzumpi. I was 6 and it didn't matter to me that we took bite after bite: me - one bite, Tzumpi - another bite, me - one bite...^_^
