Default Dogs got Soul........

My belief is that when the first mongrul that man tamed he gave it part of his own soul. To which the dog is always faithfull. I lost three yellow labs, and one wolf sheppard mix. Sorry for your loss. Wills

Thanks all of you. I had a few good cries today at the vet, with the wife and with the kids when we all buried her. I appreciate your kind thoughts and compassion. In time a new puppy will come along to accompany me on my outings but I will dread the raising. Old Dutch in her puppy days, totally chewed up and DESTROYED a Baby crib, a few pairs of shoes/boots, left indelible marks on woodwork and even helped herself once to an unattended pork butt left out to cool. I think I'll make it, she might be gone but will never be forgotten. Thanks again FTF friends.

Sorry for your loss.
I had to put my beagle, Tucker down 3 years ago and it still bothers me. I held him as he fell asleep and stopped breathing. He was suffering from bladder cancer at only 9 years old. Good dogs are hard to find and even harder to get over.

My deepest sympathies for your loss brother. I am going to be a wreck if my big guy passes before I do and can't imagine the pain. Stupid allergies.

God speed to Dutchie, may she forever be young and vibrant playing all the others until you again are reunited.

Sorry for your loss plinker.


You should try cats; you will probably get less attached to them (unless you are deranged).

Sorry for you loss, bro. I sobbed when my dog died, though I was 11 then. Haven't ever cried like that, even when people I know have died.

When I held my 17 year old Cocker while she was euthanized, I cried and I'm not ashamed to admit it. She loved me more than I ever deserved and I still miss her.

556, I feel for you brother. Rest in peace Dutchie.
I've cried more for the dogs I have lost, than any human family member, it's especially tough if you are holding them when it happens.
I keep telling myself I will never get another dog, but I got one now. I guess they just make me a better person! Sorry for your loss
