My mother passed and Pepsi and I were inseparable. A great "shop dog" and a true friend for fifteen years. When the day came to put her down, it was the saddest day of my life. To this day when ever I am in a supermarket and I pass by the soda isle and see Pepsi Cola on the shelves, I think of my buddy. I'm sorry for your loss because I know how it feels.
    Thanks for your thoughtful comment coupeute, sorry I didn't see before now.

    Things you miss...................

    The clink of the dog's tags you come home.
    The wet floor around his water bowl.
    Bringing home a doggy bag when you dine out.
    Muddy paw marks on your rugs and sofa.
    Strange and smelly things he brings inside.
    His nails clicking on your kitchen floor
    The cold wet nose at 4:00 AM
    The look when he is begging for food
    The howling at the fire sirens

    The long walks together around the neighborhood
    and the handwarmers he leaves for you to pick up.


    A Dog....................

    ...loves you unconditionally and asks only for a kind word or a pat on the head.
    ...doesn't care who you voted for.
    ...never plays politics or holds a grudge.
    ...will sleep by your feet when you have had a bad day.
    ...makes a house a home.
    ...will always greet you no matter how late you come home.
    ...knows when you are down and will come to comfort you.
    ...has an unspoken bond with you that words can never explain.
    ...is always ready for a walk even if you just went on one.
    ...teaches you to think of others and not just yourself.
    ...will give his life for you.
    ...can see into your soul but never judges you.
    ...makes your life complete.

    A dog loves you even when you fart

    Those writings I'm going to save Burnt Hands. Today was the first holiday we spent without my precious wife and our wonderful Toby who guarded us every night while we slept and looked after us while we were awake during the day, Toby's presence comforted us and helped make our family the best it could be, losing his unqualified love and the wonderful memories he gave us, some of which you wrote about, is heartbreaking, having and living 14 wonderful years with Toby was one the greatest blessings the Lord has bestowed on our family. I pray he is heaven with the wife and his three buddies who we also loved and were loved by and also left this world in the last two years. I want another Black Lab but I'm almost 74 and don't wish to befriend and love a dog only to die on him.

    I know exactly how you feel, it's a painful hurt that we dog lovers must endure, I can get along without having a lot of close friends, but I must have a dog in my life.

    Thanks sledsports, I appreciate your condolences and agree with you, our pets can be more painful to lose then some family members. Raccoons are beautiful animals, it's good to see you guys are such bosom buddies. .

    Animals have a funny way of weaseling into our hearts and becoming more of our family and loved ones than some of our family and loved ones. I feel your pain Tackit. I offer my condolences. I have a raccoon (Doodles) that is just that... my best friend, my partner in crime, sits and listens better than any human being could ever do. Click image for larger version

    When the time is right, get you another dog. It's never the same, but life's too short to be without one.

    He looks like he was a nice fella. Great smile.
    Thanks Helios and Noel. Toby was a great family dog, I never feared for the grandkids when they visited and went outside to play when Toby was with them, he never had to be taught to watch over them either.

    Toby was as gentle as lamb to those he knew, especially the grandkids' kids, but strangers were afraid to get out of their vehicles when they drove up the driveway, though he learned quick who was OK to be on the property and who wasn't.

    I still have two dogs, Toby trained our black golden retriever well, he's a good watchdog too, our other dog is Toby's daughter, she's like her father in many ways, I feel safe with both of them on the property. Like so many of us, I love dogs and could not imagine not having dogs in my life.

    Thanks, Franz and MetJunkie. I get a pain deep in my chest when I think about him being gone from me, I have to put my mind on other things so I don't get overwhelmed by his passing The Rainbow bridge is wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time, only time will heal this broken heart. Man it hurts.

    My condolences, as well, Tack. I have a 9 yr. old buddy with a bad heart, who is not expected to make it another year. I am beside myself. Every time I read the Rainbow Bridge thing, I get a little watery. Rest assured, you'll see him again.
