18 November 2009


So sorry for the delay in posting bootlegs, replying & posting comments, & just being here.
I have been in the county jail clearing up a probation "issue",
and when I got out I learned that Princess had been KILLED.
(by the so-called friends who were watching her!)
Please give me some time to mourn,
I will post ALL comments that are on hold already for review soon.....
as well as any new ones that come in.

Feb 2001 - Nov 2009

You will always be remembered
You were my best friend

My deepest condolences. Reading through the archives recently it was obvious how much she meant to you (& you to her no doubt). Time may/will lessen the hurt, but she will always be in your heart.

jesselun said...

Unbelievable! So Sorry man...seriously

Post some pix of Princess!

Losing any love is the most pain one can feel. Like 'Innocent Bystander wrote' "Reading through the archives recently it was obvious how much she meant to you"
She was lovingly included in your life. I'm sure she misses you and all of your family as well!
With heartfelt peace ....a friend.

Dino -- Dedicate this one to Princess:

So Many Roads
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

Thought I heard a blackird singing
Up on Bluebird Hill
Call me a whinin' boy if you will
Born where the sun don't shine
And I don't deny my name
Got no place to go, ain't that a shame?

Thought I heard that KC whistle
Moaning sweet and low
Thought I heard that KC when she blow
Down where the sun don't shine
Underneath the Kokomo
Whinin' boy got no place to go

So many roads I tell you
So many roads I know
So many roads, so many roads
Mountain high, river wide
So many roads to ride
So many roads, so many roads

Thought I heard a jug band playin'
"If you don't... who else will?"
From over on the far side of the hill
All I know the sun don't shine
And the rain refused to fall
And you don't seem to hear me when I call (note 1)

Wind inside and the wind outside
Tangled in the window blind
Tell me why you treat me so unkind
Down where the sun don't shine
Lonely and I call your name
No place left to go, ain't that a shame?

So many roads I tell you
New York to San Francisco
So many roads I know
All I want is one to take me home
From the high road to the low
So many roads I know
So many roads so many roads

From the land of the midnight sun
Where the ice blue roses grow
Along those roads of gold and silver snow
Howlin' wide or moaning low
So many roads I know
So many roads to ease my soul

Sorry to hear about your loss. An animal can be closer to you than most people realize, but you were lucky to have such a friend all these years.

Take all the time you need to mourn, and thanks for all you share on your blog.

Colin Gillman said...

I'm really sorry to hear of such a shocking thing man. What mofo would kill a dog that he was looking after?
Maybe it's time for you to get yourself some new friends? Some people are just assholes. Once again, sorry to hear of your bad news. Take your time brother.

Totally gutted for you mate. Look after yourself.

Normski said...

I whole heartedly concur with LakerCrazy's earlier comments. We lost our cat(a family member of 18 yrs) this year and it truly cut us to pieces for some time. 10 months later I enjoy the memories and the many photos.
Hang in there Dino and Janice, all of us out here are thinking of you. Take all the time you need, we ain't goin anywhere.

Zed said...

Terrible news! Very Sad!
So sorry, Dino. My deepest condolences.


starchild said...

my deepest condolances.

as Bobby Weir said in the intro to his show back on 8/9/1995

"our departed friend, if he taught us anything, he taught us, that good music can make the sad times better"

Anonymous said...

Sorry for your loss. Sometimes things happen for a reason but you just don't see it right away. Be thankful that you did not have to see her do the downward spiral as they get old. The best medicine now is to get a new pup. It won't replace Princess but it can fill part of the void. Get a rescue dog.

diamonddave said...

So sorry to hear about Princess. Time will heal. Really. try putting on your favourite music and turn it up loud. It won't make the pain go away but it sure helps. Best wishes.

I am so sorry about, I have never meet Princess, just by you, and I am sure she was part of your soul too, and you were part of her. Some tears fall from my eyes just now after I read the news. She will be always in your heart so in ours as well. She will be always with you, and a little bit also with all of us.
My deepest condolences.

I lost Blackie, the only dog I ever had and one of my best friends during my youth, about 30 years ago. Also Floyd, a very cool and spirited red tabby about 10 years ago. Blackie would be waiting for me on the porch of our house at the time I was walking home from school. The very moment we were close enough to see each other, he would take off at top speed down the sidewalk toward me, greeting me in the way only a dog can do. I really miss that! Floyd had a personality I've never come across in a cat, indescribable really. Some of the things he did had to be seen to be believed, and I truly miss the way he would curl up beside be in a compact little ball, and purr at decibels I previously thought impossible before knowing him. Thankfully I still have his counterpart, Angie. She has attributes equally as endearing as the others, more dog than cat really, if you know what I mean. They were barn cats(not siblings, but born about the same time) saved from a cold winter by a girlfriend at the time, I was elected for the task. The loss has never gone away(never will) but neither will the fond memories.
May they all, Blackie, Floyd, and Princess, rest in peace.
I wish they could know how important they are.
They could never be forgotten.

Deepest condolences to you on your loss. I've been following your blog for months now and enjoyed all the loving words you've shared with us about Princess. I'm so sorry for your loss. Stay strong.

rc19680207 said...

Again as I said earlier, I am saddened by the news as well. Some people just got no soul. Bottom line. I feel like I've known you for a while, pal. Even outside of this blog. I felt my stomach turn when I read the underlying story. Condolences my friend. Take all the time you need. You know how to get a hold of me outside of here, man. Peace!! AndGod bless!

So sad news to hear.

Hammer said...

Hello. I've been expecting you for quite some time.
Here, come sit beside us for awhile .
and let me tell you about this old friend of mine.
She might look tattered or maybe old
But I won't say goodbye until you've been told.
She had the brightest eyes I had ever seen,
And wore a beautiful fur coat that would out shine a queen .
She was never prissy but walked with an aire ......
And oh so polite, you could take her most anywhere.
She could run like the wind and could catch anything she chased
But she protected and sat with me when I had problems to face.
You could not find a friend nearly so dear.
Because no matter the trouble she always stayed near...
She has never asked for much from me;
Just to love and respect her and I think you'll agree .
To give her a good meal plus a nice warm bed is not much to ask ;
When she has given me all her love and to her this was no task.
Now I understand you have a schedule to keep.
But I have a small favor before she nods off to sleep.
Please fold your wings around her and let her feel young while in no pain ;
Dear Guardian Angel of Pets ,
please keep her safe and happy until I see her again.

So shocked and saddened to hear the horrible news about Princess. I am sorry for your loss.

Armando said...

I couldn't read all the messages your friends sent to you, because my eyes filled with tears thinking of how much she meant for you (and you for her, for sure). Dino, you're not alone, even though any word said to you know doesn't and cannot heal your pain. We bear the same name and we're brothers in pain. Keep up, man!
Dino (really)

Gary said...

So sorry to hear. I know what it's like to lose a loved one. Be strong brother.

Very sorry to hear about Princess. Stay strong, Dino. I'm sure she loved you with every minute she had. Your great work is a fitting tribute to her. RIP Princess.

Like everyone else has said on here, I'm really sorry to hear this terrible news Dino.

Keep strong and remember the good times with Princess if you can, I know it's hard right now (we're still mourning the loss of our best pal, Robbie Dog, who died almost four years ago.

They're part of the family and furniture in many ways - and more than that, the whole fabric of our being while they're around - and that never changes even after they leave us. Sigh....

Take your time in returning here, you know we'll all wait for you, even if you decide not to carry on adding to this wonderful site. We're all thinking of you, my friend.

Dino - Just read the news today on your blog - my heart breaks for you, and i hope that the happy memories with Princess help you get through this huge loss. Aside from the great music you kindly share, i also always enjoyed visiting here because of the presence of Princess, and your obvious love for her, means a lot to fellow dog lovers such as i.
Thoughts and prayers going out to you, you may see her and hug her again yet, someday!

Sorry about Princess...I often lend a hand to my local dog shelter...200 dogs in there. Go get another friend from a shelter ASAP...you'll do a big favor to you and to another living being who needs YOU.
