Dear God, It's Me The Dog - Page 9

post #241 of 291

You are so wrong. I'm not a religious person at all. I care a sh*t about religions. Can't you understand you are killing your beloved?

May be it's you who don't want to suffer.

Ordo, who wants to suffer? If you are a materialist at all I can not fathom how you can defer to a quantity over quality of life position. I would be happy to continue with you if we're to:

a) answer some of the questions asked of you
b) take it to PM

@ordo Crazy is what crazy says and I do not argue with crazy. I feel that you are more trying to troll this thread rather than place a legit and valid argument. Although one's thoughts and feelings are always valid, trying to legitimize your stance by making base statements with no real fact nor reasoning behind it just shows how callus and cruel one can be towards others pain of losing great and wonderful companions.

 

You sir (clap, clap) are out!

 

@AllanMcPherson Don't let a troll pull you in and waste your precious time.

oh, I and do understand that I have killed, to use your words, my pets. Instead of having them languish in a suffering that they could not comprehend. Everybody who has made that choice understands that as well. And they likely are torn up for it. Do you not understand that?

Ok.Let's calm down. I just expressed my opinion in a matter that i know pretty well, cause i've been on both sides of this discusiion. Let's go back to what we appreciate; our brotherhood with our beloved pets. No more "trolling".

I just wanted to thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.

I hope this thread circles back to it's origin.

This is our new friend from a local pound.

He's 4 yrs. old and maybe Henry or Norman for a name(on golden pond:D)

I would call him Lucky. He is lucky that there are people such as yourself that can look beyond the cute puppies and see the more experienced dog for what he has to offer. And you are lucky that you get a new friend. How great is that!

 

I use to be a volunteer at our local animal shelter. I would walk the dogs and people them. When I opened my restaurant I had to resign due to time constraints. My volunteer dog walking turned into three new best friends for me, probably just as well that I had to resign or God knows how many new best friends I would have by now!

 

How could anybody not love a dog?

My wife and 16 year old were visiting the breeder near Malaga yesterday. Just a couple of our sweety Ophila's relitives.

Well I gotta post a pic of our girl Holly. Technically not a Hound. But pretty dang close. I give to you, Holly the Catahoula.


-Woof!

post #260 of 291

@HappyHound

 I honestly had never been around a Catahoula until a couple of years ago. They are becoming very popular in South Texas. Just about everyone I know in Texas has a ranch somewhere.

I have some buddies that travel South a couple of times a year to go skunk pig hunting. The Catahoulas are very good dogs to hunt these. They are able to hold the pig trapped in a position so that one can use a bow and arrow or small caliper gun. I think the best thing about them is they seem to be a breed who can come off the dust and be a wonderful house dog, with children and strangers (although a bit protective).

Holly looks just like one of the hounds I fell in love with. So friendly and polite when not hunting. As we start a pit burn at dusk she will run around and has the craziest eyes.

Hollys a beauty.

 

PS not a big hunter. Especially when hunters with dogs keep them caged up.

He looks so right at home....he is at home! What a beautiful boy
Who rescued who?
What name did you finally decide on?
Does he go to the Ronald McDOnald house with you? a true win-win there.

Meet my brother-dog Cacho. He passed away years ago and was the most affective dog I've ever met. We enjoyed a long and loving brotherhood. He was not my dog, tho. My spiritual mentor, Mario, whose legs we see in the picture owned him.

 

 

BTW: I've been away from the forum due to some reasons.
My mother passed on last December and I suffered a retroactive emotional reaction.  Death is, in fact, something real and at the same time unconceivable.
Then I had to move to the old familiar house and proceed to take care of our familiar goods - we talk five generations of documents, furniture, all kind of objects, pictures, etc., etc.- an endless and exhausting task. This will last for one year or so, until all legal issues are cleared and we can sell the familiar house.  So, my participation in the forum will be restricted for a while.
My greetings to everybody.

Dear Ordo, 

 

What an amazing and most beautiful brother-dog to have in one's life. You must have some wonderful memories with him. I feel truly sad to hear about your mother and the emotional challenge you have ahead of you. My thoughts and positive energy are being sent your way everyday for the endurance. I hope you will be able to find happiness and joy within your life again very soon! Although we will miss your amazing and delicious dish contributions and wise counsel, we look forward to hearing from you on this forum in any capacity that you are able to offer.

For years I lived in apartments, in cities, and being a cook/chef I was gone for the vast majority of the day so I couldn't own a dog.  When the wife and I moved to Wisconsin and bought a house I told her that one of the first things I wanted to do is get a dog.  That is how Dodger entered our lives.

 

 

He was an English Springer Spaniel.  But my wife and I were away at work an awful lot so we thought that Dodger needed a buddy, so we found a beautiful Shepard/Husky mix puppy at a local shelter and Emma joined our pack.

 

 

They became the best of buds!

 

 

In September, 2012 we had to say good bye to Dodger.

 

 

The following winter we welcomed Dodger's protégé, Buford, another Springer Spaniel, to the pack, although Emma wasn't so thrilled to have a young pup around, although she finally warmed up to the little ball of energy.

 

 

 

Later that year, cancer took Emma.

 

 

In January, I heard about 5 year old Yellow Lab that had been surrendered to the Humane Society.  The woman who had owned him had to move and couldn't take him with her, and her Mom, having MS, could not handle a 95 pound, head strong Lab so we added Duke to the pack also.

 

 

The hope had been that maybe having an older, calmer dog around would rub off on Buford.  Boy we were wrong!!  After about 2 weeks of being on good behavior, Duke found his inner puppy and now he and Buford spend hours on end chasing each other around the yard and mouth fighting with each other!

 

While it is so hard to lose a dog and you cannot "replace" a lost dog with a new one, the joy they bring to our lives is immeasurable and I just cannot see our family without at least 1 dog in our lives, if not 2.

Life, sometimes it'll hit you in the face pretty hard, but with furry companionship, we all seem to muddle through, don't we?

I've just lost my APBT very suddenly tonight and don't have a lot of people to share with. I'm very sad and devastated.

I think I'm going to wait to tell my kids after school. I'm so sad.

That really sucks, man. I'm sorry to hear that.
