I felt like you when I lost my first dog. He was special in every way. I learned so much from him - about dogs and about myself, about being a team, about trust. Sometimes I get teary thinking of him and it's 10 years now that he went to the bridge.

I guess it is supposed to be like that. But mostly I smile when I detect some little quirks of him in my boys. Olo love to bark at the fence with the neighbour's dog like Colin, he hated to go out in the rain just like Paddy and loved people, especially kids but despised unknown dogs just like Andy.

And when we are together as a family with my parents and my sister we often talk about him and allmthise things we experienced together. Anybody could talk to my younger sister without Olo screaming bloody murder at him or Olo pursuing a police officer and my mom frantically racing after him because sometimes he decided to stop the friendly act. And one day during agility class he decided to stay on the A-hurdle because he was the biggest and nobody could reach him. And I was desperately trying to get him down and all the other dog owners laughed at me.


It was a good time and wouldn't want to miss it. So today I can smile through my tears and think that my life would have less sadness if I never met him butcalso less joy.

Sorry for butchering the english language. I try to keep the mistakes to a minimum.

He's still with you in each and every one of those memories. Nothing wrong a memory generating a couple of tears. I always figure that there's a drought and we can use the water.

I just lost my best boy 2 days ago. I don't think I'll ever get over it either.

For now, all I'm doing is sitting, staring at the wall, wishing I had him back.

Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.

It is very hard and while time dulls the pain, one never truly forgets.

I understand how it is. On June 12th 2012 I lost Sabrina. I still see her coming down the stairs with one of her toys & in all of her spots in the house. Remembering for the moment is sweet but than you remember they have crossed & you are sad.
