My Doggy Died

  1. Apr 24, 2007 #1
    Today my parents phoned and said my dog died, we had been expecting it for awhile. I've had her since I was in grade 2 so she was quite old, and she had that hip displasia thing German Shepherds get really bad. She was a sweet old dog, with a very quirky kind of attitude. Poor old girl :cry: :cry:

    So sorry to hear that. She was a beautiful dog. It's always tough to lose a furry companion. :frown:

    I'm sorry to hear that Scorpa. It sounds like she had a very good and long life. You can feel good about that.

    I'm very sorry to hear that, Scorpa. The gophers are probably celebrating. It's always tough to lose a member of the family, and pets are definitely in that category.

    She was a lucky dog to have such a great human friend. I'm very sorry for your loss.

    It's never easy to lose those we love, even when expected.

    Sorry to hear about your doggy, Scorpa. It sounds like she had a nice long life for a dog, but it's still tough to loose a furry friend.

    It's inevitable that we lose our dear pets, but that doesn't make it a bit easier. My wife and I still can't bring ourselves to get another ferret, and it has been over 2 years since we lost Turbo. I'm thinking of you, scorpa.

    Cold nose in the snow,
    Gentle paw greets the lady,
    Find peace in wise eyes.

    I remember my best friend's dog. He was a black lab named Bear. He would hunt ducks with my friend until he got too old. Bear had a unique smell that filled the house. Sometimes he would knock on the door just to see what we were up to. A few minutes later he would go back downstairs. I remember his short coarse fur and how his skin felt smooth and rolled on his muscle when I rubbed his neck. His leg would twitch when you touched a certain spot on his belly. My friend and I would amuse ourselves making the dog's leg move. Bear didn't seem to mind. He had a tail like a whip and when he was excited about something you could always tell where he was by the sound of his tail lashing the doorways. When laying on the floor Bear felt it was an opportune time to lick my face just once or twice before moving off somewhere else. I loved that dog.

    I never had a dog of my own. Imagine how fortunate you are.

    Thanks everybody. I'll miss her but she had a good life at least. I'm glad I have that picture of her to remember her by :smile: My poor other dog will be lonely now....they were inseperable.
