Hey Norf A lost dog that looked very similar to yours showed up at my house a few days back. I got pretty attached taking care of it and it was very hard to let him go when I found the owner. I did a painting of him and put the full story in the description on my page.
Looks like my Lilu from several years back, actually! Though since Lu's a black lab-weimerimerwhatever, yours seems to have a longer snout. Lilu does have a similar taste for fine, cushiony chairs, and the same "Yeah? You're not holding food and you're looking at me with something" look.
i used to have an alaskan malamute we had to put him down though due ti old age an hipdisplasia i knew him since i was 2 he was 13 in human years when my parents put him down (sniffle) still makes me cry when i think about him.(didn't even get to say good bye) starts crying missing shadow.
