    These dog died threads are a bummer. Sorry, no doggies here but, have watched our beloved HUGO the family pet get ran over as a child. I ran to the hurting fella and he bit me in the leg as he was dying and in such pain. I still have the scar on my right thigh. Also walking my two year old German Shepard about 15 years ago lost contact of "Zeke" and he wandered into a highway and got struck in the head. Killed him instantly and the driver just sped away as I was freaking out. So I know the pain of loosing a dog. That's probably why I'll never own another one not to mention being a single guy I can't devote enough attention to one. They are NOT independent like many cats. They need attention. Sorry for your loss mate. It sucks and is very real.
    “This Is My Creed I believe first in God, the same God in which my ancestors believed. I believe in Jesus Christ and that he is my saviour. Second, I believe in the Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America, without interpretation, as it was written and meant to work. I have given my sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I intend to fulfill that oath. Third, I believe in the family unit and, in particular, my family unit. I have sworn that I will give my life, if it is required, in defense of God, the Constitution, or my family. Fourth, I believe that any man without principles that he is ready and willing to die for at any given moment is already dead and is of no use or consequence whatsoever.

    Gubba, my 4th black and tan Shepard, 3 years old.
    Had a bump grow on his muzzle over night last week, I was of course terrified it was a tumor but it turned out to be a tooth gone bad, just had it pulled today and he is still dragging his ass from being put under.
    Last one that died, Rooney, I was so messed up I could barely eat or sleep for a week, still not over it. I went to a dog forum that had grief support and it helped a bit but I found alot of posters there to be haughty snots and I literally told them to f off and never been back.

    When my 2nd dog Popper died I waited over a year until I got Roo.
    After he died my daughter talked me into getting another right away, I felt guilty as hell but she was right.

    Condolences, not much consolation but 13 years is indeed a good run for a large breed dog.

    Mark Twain wrote that the only shortcoming of dogs is that they don't live long enough.

    He also wrote that "Getting into Heaven is based on grace. If it were based on merit your dog would get in and you wouldn't".

    Condolences on your loss. We've had a few scares and know it will come.

    Here's two that always get to me from Rudyard Kipling . . .

    The Power of the Dog

    Rudyard Kipling, 1865 - 1936





    There is sorrow enough in the natural way
    From men and women to fill our day;
    And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
    Why do we always arrange for more?
    Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
    Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.


    Buy a pup and your money will buy
    Love unflinching that cannot lie–
    Perfect passion and worship fed
    By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
    Nevertheless it is hardly fair
    To risk your heart for a dog to tear.


    When the fourteen years which Nature permits
    Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
    And the vet’s unspoken prescription runs
    To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
    Then you will find–it’s your own affair–
    But … you’ve given your heart to a dog to tear.


    When the body that lived at your single will,
    With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!).
    When the spirit that answered your every mood
    Is gone–wherever it goes–for good,
    You will discover how much you care,
    And will give your heart to a dog to tear.


    We’ve sorrow enough in the natural way,
    When it comes to burying Christian clay.
    Our loves are not given, but only lent,
    At compound interest of cent per cent.
    Though it is not always the case, I believe,
    That the longer we’ve kept ’em, the more do we grieve:
    For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
    A short-time loan is as bad as a long–
    So why in–Heaven (before we are there)

    Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
    DINAH IN HEAVEN
    by Rudyard Kipling

    She did not know that she was dead
    But, when the pang was o'er,
    Sat down to wait her Master's tread
    Upon the Golden Floor,

    With ears full-cock and anxious eyes,
    Impatiently resigned;
    But ignorant that Paradise
    Did not admit her kind.

    There was one step along the Stair
    That led to Heaven's Gate;
    And, till she heard it, her affair
    Was -- she explained -- to wait.

    And she explained with flattened ear,
    Bared lip and milky tooth--
    Storming against Ithuriel's Spear
    That only proved her truth!

    Sudden -- far down the Bridge of Ghosts
    That anxious spirits clomb--
    She caught that step in all the hosts,
    And knew that he had come.

    She left them wondering what to do,
    But not a doubt had she.
    Swifter than her own squeal she flew
    Across the Glassy Sea;

    Flushing the Cherubs everywhere,
    And skidding as she ran,
    She refuged under Peter's Chair
    And waited for her man.

    * * * * * *

    There spoke a Spirit out of the press,
    'Said: -- "Have you any here
    That saved a fool from drunkenness,
    And a coward from his fear?

    "That turned a soul from dark to day
    When other help was vain;
    That snatched it from Wanhope and made
    A cur a man again?"

    "Enter and look," said Peter then,
    And set the Gate ajar.
    "If I know aught of women and men
    I trow she is not far."

    "Neither by virtue, speech nor art
    Nor hope of grace to win;
    But godless innocence of heart
    That never heard of sin:

    "Neither by beauty nor belief
    Nor white example shown.
    Something a wanton -- more a thief --
    But -- most of all -- mine own."

    "Enter and look," said Peter then,
    "And send you well to speed;
    But, for all that I know of women and men
    Your riddle is hard to read."

    Then flew Dinah from under the Chair,
    Into his arms she flew --
    And licked his face from chin to hair

    And Peter passed them through!

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Thank you young lady for this. I appreciate it very much. I am already feeling much better and still have my chocolate lab Coco. Coco and Marley were named by my children and am really glad I didn't have to say good bye to a snowflake or peaches! Thank you to all. Love this site and thank you for putting up with my moment of loss. Cheers to all

    Thanks Piratess! He was a beautiful Dog. Loved the dooky out of him, but he was as dumb as a box of Rocks! Have you ever heard of a water dog that was a fraud of the water? The slightest trickle of water would send him fleeing. In 13 years I don't think he ever caught a single treat. They would bounce off his face and he would pick them up off of the ground. PS he always TRIED to catch them, not like he wasn't interested. Cheers

    Man I do feel your pain, but you have the best attitude and that will make a difference with time. I found this grown up in the woods 2 years ago, during winter. He was all bones, could see his spine and ribs and he was so exhausted. Knowing a winter storm was coming, I could not leave him there. He is the best dog I ever have, my wife named him Lucky but it should have been Scooby My sympathy trdking.

    P.S: I have no idea how I put 2 pictures, as I have only one attachment?

    Ah the mysteries of computer operations. I have no idea what you did, but we now have two different perspectives

    Thanks for the well wishes. Dog rescues are always the best! Cheers
