Usually, people fall asleep listening to stories about other people's pets. But, then again, not that many pet credentials include 'National Recording Artist'. BB really was a session musician. His work can be heard on Tom Mason's Where Shadows Fall & the upcoming Joe Nolan album Blue Turns Black. I dog-shit you not.
Unfortunately, his last work will be released posthumously. Yesterday, we had to have him put down. He was a great friend over the last 12 years. He loved being buried in leaves & snow, having a shop-vac run over his fur, & eating walnuts. I took to him because he didn't mind the smell of my cigar. In his declining years, he was perhaps a little less affectionate, but still, the most patient dog I've ever known.
I never got him that male-symbol ID tag, but I think he had a little more class than that.
For those of you who knew him, I thought you'd like to know. For those of you who didn't, here are a few pictures of him in the studio.
