My buddy Sal, short for Salvador, is passing away. Keeping him comfortable as possible. I'm so distraught i have no words. :weepy: I hope he passes soon to be on to a better place. I take him and Max for a walk, everyday.

I know what you are going through. My Australian shepherd passed last spring. He was king of our place, always going with me to do chores and guarding the place from deer and coyotes. Next month I’m taking home a new puppy from the same breeder where I got my last best friend. We have a lot of training and new things to experience and learn coming up next year. Condolences on the loss of your friend.

My thoughts are with you. After 15 years your house is pretty empty, I'm sure. It takes a while to realize that when you turn around they won't be standing sentinel.

You would not be sad if you did not have a heart. Our dog suffered an injury about two months back. There was two times I felt he may not make it. Yes, this Christian prayed for his dog. It is amazing the bond and love there can be. They sure have the ability to worry us, upset us, make us laugh and brag and they also can make us cry.

George Graham Vest speaking:

“Gentlemen of the jury, the best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter whom he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us — those whom we trust with our happiness and good name — may become traitors in their faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads. The one absolute, unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world — the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous — is his dog.

“Gentlemen of the jury, a man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and poverty, in health and sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow, and the snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.

“If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.”
