Last time I wrote about this little dog was almost 10 years ago, he left us today with congestive heart failure. He was found in a ditch, maybe it was meant to be. He was such a loving little boy. Now he can cross that Rainbow Bridge to be with his playmate Princess who I lost 5 years ago. His name was Buddy, we miss You little boy.

You have my deepest sympathy, and I am sorry for your loss.  I still grieve for great dogs I have lost - some gone for several decades now... 


You are doing the right thing though - remembering the good times, and look forward to seeing him again in Heaven!

Kipling’s poem “Power of the Dog” :



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?

My heart hurts for you. I still feel sorrow when I think of dogs that have been gone for years now. NOTHING will help bring back those smiles like a puppy. Better yet, make it two puppies.
