Buddy has been gone almost two years...tribute to all our lost animal friends

it's funny how animals can affect us in ways humans never will.In the last 5 years I have lost two grandparents..my stepfather..two uncles...and Buddy Guy.
To this day thinking about that big gump makes me more emotional than anyone or anything I have lost,including my marriage.

People who don't have pets could never relate...he meant more to me than 99% of the people I have known or met and all of us pet owners have had that *one* special friend....Buddy Guy was mine.

Tell your stories of your one true best animal friend...I want to hear them.

For me it was Buddy greeting me when he knew I had a rough day at work.After I showered I would lay down on the couch and he would wait for the ok to pounce on me and baby me....licking my face and laying on me.....215 pounds of dog pouncing leaves a mark btw.A St.Bernard doesn't play when it's time for hugs

I still miss him terribly

1. We lost our 12 year-old Golden Retriever Traveler a year ago today...

We still miss him so much...I know we always will. He was so sweet and loving, and we had so much fun with him. He loved to swim, chew sticks (the only thing he would ever chew,) and most of all to go for rides in the car with his daddy. He never met anyone he wasn't ready to love, especially kids. Good boy, Travvie.....I know you are somewhere over the rainbow having a good time and spreading love!

2. Mine just passed.

My Tony is gone.

I cried tonight. I was putting the puppies and my partner to bed, and I noticed a pink spot on the comforter. It was where he had bled on it when he tore into his tail. I remember being mad at him for bleeding on our brand new comforter. I just started crying. The worst is our dog, Marigny, who keeps trying to find him, and then cries when she can't. She doesn't do it as much now, but for almost a week ad half after Tony passed, she would race around the house trying to find him and then shake and cry. I had to let her sniff his collar before she'd calm down.

I still, sometimes, expect to see him waiting at my office door when I open it.

5. I know the feeling

 

Katie the Wonder Terrier was lost for about a month after we lost Buddy...I adopted Junior and it took her another good month to accept him.

NOW she likes Junior...she absolutely owns him.....he says how high every time she barks

4. My last hybrid wolf Jenna passed in January

... she was the last in a line going back almost 25 years.

I could write volumes about my wolves. Each had a very distinct and human personality. Very maternal/paternal with children, loyal, cunning hunters (rats, possums and the occasional cotton mouth snake never stood a chance), smart to a fault.

I've just now begun to consider a new dog - I may change it up - thinking about a border collie (wyldcollie?) but my wife still wants a wolf.
