Since I saw Bowie's name on TV I liked it, and I said that when I have a male dog that will be his name, now my guardian is my Bowie.

My blond labradoodle named Bowie died a couple of weeks ago. He was beautiful. Hell always be in my heart. I never knew that the name means yellow haired. Serendipity, I guess. Enjoy your Bowies.
