  • We Have Decided

    Our last pair of dogs passed several years ago and there isn't a day that we don't miss them. We had them for 14 years and they died three months apart both with me holding them even though they were larger dogs. We just did not want to go through that again but we must be strange or something, life without dogs is really lonely to us. We are looking for two English Cream (white) Golden Retrievers now but wow are they costly. We must act soon or the dogs will outlive us.

    I miss not having pets too, but Penny and I both say the grief of losing them isn't worth the joy (and work) of having them around.

      When a Furkid passes is about the saddest part of having them. Years ago I had a Cocker that passed. I learned how quiet a house is without them and soon after got my first Sheltie.

        I can understand what BPofMD said about the grief is just to much to go through again. That's why we waited so long to decide to get another pair of dogs. Our second dog to pass was a Husky/Shepard mix he weighed 135 pounds when he died and I was holding his head in my lap at the time. Some of you may think I am crazy but at the very second his heart quit I felt it like a shock through my body, I've never experienced anything like that before or after. It ripped my heart out in a matter speaking. Now we think we are ready to give it a shot again.

          We have a GrandPup that visits us every day, and that is as close as we need to be to owning another dog. After the last 4 years without, and with our busy schedule and travel, we have found life very nice not having that extra responsibility to worry about. I would doubt that we will ever have a dog again. After 60 years of owning dogs, I find that hard to hear myself saying, but it is true....

            Bill, I don't think you're crazy, I just think you were just incredibly blessed to be a part of his spirit leaving his body for the next world, which I believe is the natural state of all living beings, human and otherwise. Your next dogs will be part of a very special family, with you.
            On another note, I like your signature, especially the last part. And I, for one, would love to hear about the mods you gave your truck...

              We lean toward the whole "When one starts to wear out get another..." and staying at 2-3 dogs. That said, as we near retirement I'm not sure we will do the replacing....

              That said, love those pups....

                Yep the grief of losing them, but pets are true friends. My Azzie, Maggie, died at 17-1/4 and Pounce my Maine Coon preceded her at only 6 years of age. Now have two young Tuxey cats. Black with white chests and feet. A barrel of fun. :-) But I long for my Golden Retriever, Abby. I miss my Maggie, My Abby, My Kobuk, My Tok, My Scamp, and more.................and of course Pounce. He was so much fun!
