One of my favorites from Johnny Carson… Jimmy Stewart’s dog named Beau.
I have written many posts about our dog named Beau. Jimmy Stewart, the actor, had a similar dog with the same name. He wrote a poem that he read on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show back in 1981. It is funny and more. Click on the link below. I expect that you will be glad to have the experience.

I love this clip, gets me every time I see it.
Me, too. I have Carson’s DVD set and if memory serves, he preceded this poem with a story about him and Lassie. I wish I knew how I could post that passage up!
I don’t know if I’ve seen that one. But I’ve seen him and Beau before. Get’s me every single time. I love Jimmy Stewart. Classy guy.
And you know he piloted bombers during WWII, yes?
Yes, I do. It’s amazing that so many of our great veteran’s are not even known for that service, but for something else.
I had a dog named Beau, a black lab, he listened to me more than Stewart’s did – brought back many wonderful memories.
Dogs always do that, don’t they? Imagine how much happiness they bring to wonder vets… ☺
I’ve never seen this clip before. It’s very moving. Thanks so much for sharing it, Koji! :))
What was sad was at the end of his life, Johnny remorsed that while he was successful in communicating to millions of strangers, he failed with his family…
I always loved this. Jimmy Stewart was always one of my favorites.
He is one of the few of whom I’ve heard no “dirt” on. He was a good American.
I remember the night he read that on Carson. Yes, I was up that late at that young an age…lol
We are always young…at heart.
Thanks – I have not seen Jimmy Stewart on any shows ( I know, I know…)- but I do like him and each year my husband always insist we watch “it’s a wonderful life” at xmas – and of course “a christmas carol” –
