It all started when Victoria Vanoffs Black Lab, Governor, passed away on what some say could “only happen in Hollywood.” It happened on Halloween. Anyone who knew them knew he was the pride and joy of the Vanoff family. Although the couple is going through a divorce, they have joint custody of the dog. With the loss of the leader of their animal pack, their ‘second in command,’ Senator, steps up, although he never feels quite right in this position. After six months of grieving and the finally healing, Victoria convinces her husband, Nick Vanoff, to get another puppy. The problems began when she had taken in her sister’s dog, a Golden-doodle, something her husband refers to as a “1940’s pilot who still has his goggles on.” He was a good dog, but not a pure breed Labrador, what they had always had and wanted. That is, until they met Prince Salmon Gomez. He changed their lives forever.
It has been said that you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you cannot pick your friend's nose. The exception, of course, is when you and your friend share that special feeling of camaraderie, because face it; you'd do anything for those guys. When friendship just doesn't cut it, BFFs is so last year, and intimacy is just a step too far, camaraderie gets your point across without making you seem jealously clingy.
Camaraderie expresses more than a mere feeling of friendship, and should be used primarily in the context of those with whom one connects the most closely Though the word may be used with respect to family members ("The brothers shared a deep camaraderie"), it is most commonly spoken in reference to groups of individuals who share a different type of relationship, through work, sports, or other activities.
Etymology: Camarade, the French word for our modern comrade, inspired camaraderie, which shows up first in English usage around 1840. Comradery, the attempt to anglicize the word, is seen infrequently as well.
