Great story my friend. So sorry for your loss.
I wish dogs outlived us. But unfortunately as owners we can go through this many times in our lifetime. Go out and find a new pup, when you are ready.

My blue tic's dad. Full blood peanut beagle named Rusty. Rusty was supposed to be my wife's dog, that didn't go well. He's my buddy.

what is the value of life?
how does one measure the love and the unconditional affection and love a dog feels for its pack members.
I have known true friendship and true loyalty only from my dogs, now dont get me wrong, I love my dear fellow humans, but in comparison, we people can give out very few of what they can give to us.
I am a better person, and have understood many things I once ignored ever since I`ve had them walking with me on my darkest hours through the lightless paths, and in the end, when everyone else was gone, they remained.

We have evolved together, proof is in the fleas!
great post OP, humanity is and has been the same, ever since we became what we are today, discoveries like these should give us a good idea about the fact that we are no different than they, all that has changed are our supposed comforts, but humanity remains the same.

We are no different and will be no different than men in the future, and I can bet dogs will be with them as well.
great post OP!

Tomorrow I have to visit the Vet's Office, my four 6-week-old Shiba Inu pups are due for their first shots. This will be their first taste of how "humans" treat them outside of their own home, it is sort of sad but thankfully I will be there to soothe the sore bums!

Then, in less than three weeks, they will be homed except for one of them; this is an exciting time and I look forward to the "peace" to return in my home!

Shiba Inu puppies are like raising wolf pups; they bite and they mean business! They are so adorably cute but they are considered a "primitive" breed. They should be kept "grain free" as they are intolerant of that kind of diet.

The oldest Shiba found is dated to 8000 BC and has changed little in all of that time. I can certainly attest to their Nature. The Shiba Inu is not a pet for the average person seeking a dog, but they sure are cute!

This one is Michio (I named him after Michio Kaku)

Here is a friend who proves his worth
Without conceit or pride of birth.
Let want or plenty play the host,
He gets the least and gives the most—
He's just a dog.

He's ever faithful, kind and true;
He never questions what I do,
And whether I may go or stay,
He's always ready to obey
'Cause he's a dog.

Such meager fare his want supplies!
A hand caress, and from his eyes
There beams more love than mortals know;
Meanwhile he wags his tail to show
That he's my dog.

He watches me all through the day,
And nothing coaxes him away;
And through the night-long slumber deep
He guards the home wherein I sleep—
And he's a dog.

I wonder if I'd be content
To follow where my master went,
And where he rode—as needs he must—
Would I run after in his dust
Like other dogs.

How strange if things were quite reversed—
The man debased, the dog put first.
I often wonder how 'twould be
Were he the master 'stead of me—
And I the dog.

A world of deep devotion lies
Behind the windows of his eyes;
Yet love is only half his charm—
He'd die to shield my life from harm.
Yet he's a dog.

If dogs were fashioned out of men
What breed of dog would I have been?
And would I e'er deserve caress,
Or be extolled for faithfulness
Like my dog here?

As mortals go, how few possess
Of courage, trust, and faithfulness
Enough from which to undertake,
Without some borrowed traits, to make
A decent dog!

So many loved dogs out there! It's devastating when you lose one but at least the dogs mentioned in the thread have been much loved.

I wonder how far we would of got without dogs? I've been wondering if we'd of ever managed to make it past the hunter gatherer phase without them

Nice collie
I have a border collie bitch 17yrs old and still running for England


Just two comma's and you would have sounded like an American rapper. And sounded pretty offensive, actually:-)

Thanks, Versa, and all that added to thread.
What a nice read, but SAD too
(I had my tissues already at hand, and YES me did need them
.)

Sorry for all that have lost there friends.
I too had to say goodbye to 1 of my female golden labrador a year and a week ago( but Im not counting)

Tirra, was her name.
She too is buried with all of the things she loved in life and is buried out the backyard facing the house.

Im lucky I still have my 15yr old Golden Lab, to keep me SANE.
But when he moves on to his next plane of existence, I will have him cremated. Then i will put some of His ashes In a key ring and carry him by myside forever, just like he was on earth.

Dogs are mystical little beings, and without them we would be lost

S&F for you

Dogs are awesome and most definitely have a soul. I have a 6 year old Doberman which I got from a Doberman Rescue about 2 years ago. This dog was meant for my family. How do I know?? We visited the Rescue a couple of times I knew that I wanted a Doberman and needed to find the right one. We interacted with several dogs and were on the fence about which dog was the right one. As we were getting in the car to leave Rocky came bounding up and jumped up on my drivers door and stuck his head in looking at me as if to say where are you going without me?? He hasn't left our side since. He is a 110 pound beautiful family member.

Dobes are gorgeous, there was a Doberman x called Donnie that used to arrange his toys in groups that was fascinating.

Thanks again for a good read, and for photo.
If they only had camera's back then, Im sure we would see many photos just like the ones everyone sent into this thread.

I never understood why people liked dogs so much.
IMO they're smelly, hairy, loud and extremely disgusting creatures. I've had several dogs and I have never been able to bond with them the way you guys do
So I just shot them or let them go, but I love turtles and I think turtles are AWESOME.

When I had my first baby, my in-laws were going crazy that my border collie would hurt the baby, I knew my dog so well that she wouldn’t hurt anyone of us.

I got home from hospital went straight to my dog, she was so happy to see me, I then showed her the baby, she was so gentle to her. Every day after that the dog slept under her cot and never left her side.


That's exactly what I did with my collie and my baby girl
Sadie (my collie) is 17 now and just had to go to the vets for the first time for an ear problem, my daughter (2yrs old) is in charge of handing out the cheese covered tablets so they're both very happy with the whole medication issue at the moment

Funny....they probably felt the same about you.


Oh...and yes it takes a big man to shoot a dog.

You sound like a great person, your mother must be proud
