I lost my best friend tonight. My companion of 8 years. He was my jester, my comforter, my protector.

I held his head as he passed on. My big ole 80 lb baby of 2 wks ago now just skin and bones.

I rescued my Hooch 8 years ago. I didn't think I was ready for another dog since I'd just had to have my 15 year old bulldog put down. I brought Hooch inside to give him a drink of water...and I guess I brought him into my heart at the same time.

I don't why I came here to share all this but putting it in "black and white" seems to help a little bit. My house is SOOOO empty and this place kind of feels like "home".

Thanks for listening. I gotta go. I'm a mess right now.

Im sorry for your loss of your Hooch. He was very lucky to find you.

I know this may sound odd but when I was a kid and our dog passed I use to think of the movie "All Dogs Go To Heaven" and it made me smile to know my Rosebud was in heaven with the other dogs having a good old time and wasn't suffering anymore.

HUGS to you.

Sorry for your loss. No doubt dogs and pets in general are a huge part of our lives, and surely more than just an animal. Losing a beloved animal companion can be just as painful as losing a person who is close to you. As is the case with all things, time will heal your pain. May the good times you had with Hooch be forever in your mind and heart! Once again sorry for your loss friend

You gave him many years of love and happiness. I am so sorry for your loss. I have lost many precious pets through the years and it is never easy. Take some of your favorite photos of him and buy nice frames for them. Plant something in a garden or even in a pot for your home in his memory.

I am sure Hooch is over the rainbow bridge sitting by a tall tree in the sunshine, in a better place.

Perhaps in time, you will be ready to rescue a homeless dog who desperately needs your love.

Dear TNTarheel,

Sorry to hear about your loss, it is always painful to be separated from loved ones. Dogs are fine companions for us and I have grieved each I have lost over the years. My best wishes and thoughts are with you.

I have parted with many of my friends and relatives over the past few years (Just today, I was at a friend's funeral), and it hurts like hell.
I consider myself fortunate in my firm belief that we all return to 'the soup', where we're all reconciled with our loved ones at the end of our lives.

I reckon it doesn't matter what species we are, we are all part of the same thing, and the only difference between us and our ancestors is the apparent seperateness which our senses bestow upon us.

Through the pain of grief, we can truly realise how fickle our disagreements are, and can move towards a broader perspective on life and each other.

I don't mean to come across as preachy or anything, but this is my belief, and if anyone else can benefit from it, I feel I have done something to make the world a better place, and the experience of grief is still fresh in my mind (Plus I'm a little bit drunk), so I may be rambling on a bit here.

I believe I have had direct experience of the hereafter, so that's what I mean by the previous stuff.

I really feel for you, and hope you feel better soon, as I know I will.

My advice is, get another dog (Or whatever) as soon as you feel capable of doing so, and provide it with the love and affection you have obviously given to your previous companions, and when it's your turn to shed this mortal coil, you'll have one hell of a greeting party when you get there.

All the best,

I.A.

I am so very sorry for your loss, TNT. It's really difficult to say goodbye to a furry friend. I like to believe that you now have a furry guardian angel watching over you. Thoughts and prayers your way!

Thank you so much for your kind words.

Hooch was much more than a pet to me. He had no idea he wasn't human, and I never told him.

Thank you, friend, for caring.

Thank you, Night Star, for the beauiful vision and the ideas.

I've sent my pictures of him off to be printed and I'll pick them up this afternoon.

I'm not at all sure my heart can handle another. I've dealt with so much death over the last few years that I just don't know. Perhaps, if another is sent into my life, maybe.

I A, you made me smile...and I didn't think I could. Hope...what a beautiful feeling. Thank you!

I'm so sorry about your friend. You're so right, human or otherwise, it hurts like hell.

Preachy? Not in the least. Thank you for taking time during your pain to try and help me with mine.

Thank you for your encouragement and prayers.

A "furry guardian angel" touched my heart and now that is the image I have of him. Thank you.

Thank you, all of you, for taking the time to send love and encouragement. I'll never be able to put into words how much it means to me.

Thank you for the beautiful visions and great ideas that have soothed my heart and given my mind something to work with.

Now I know why I was compelled to post my pain here...good, kind-hearted folks like all of you.

Thank you so very, very much.
