This is just so beautiful...and of course true.

" who possessed Beauty without Vanity, Strength without Insolence, Courage without Ferocity, and all the Virtues of Man, without his Vices. This Praise... is but a just tribute to the Memory of [Lucky], a Dog."

I am at work and cying like a baby..... I saw my Greta-girl in every sentence. I nodded yes, yes, yes as i read on...... and tears began to stream.

I just lost her 4 months ago at age 13...... this beautiful piece really opened the grieving process again.

Simply beautiful, simply honest, and thank you.

Rescue ...Each one, reach one

You will learn the true measure of love - the steadfast, undying kind that says, "It doesn't matter where we are or what we do, or how life treats us as long as we are together." Respect this always. It is the most precious gift any living soul can give another. You will not find
it often among the human race.

This is what I will miss the most.
RIP Casey and Gypsy
Thank you for showing us the true measure of Love
We Love and Miss You So Much <3 <3
And of course our precious Kaiser too, who is grieving with us.
We are all lost without you.

Thank you for posting this, I had to say goodbye to my best friend last night and I am devastated. He wasn't a GSD, he was a chocolate Labrador Retriever named Cocoa and he gave me close to 13 years of love and devotion and I miss him so very much today, reading this has helped a little, it's hard right now, as I have just begun to go through the grieving process.

I'm hoping that my new puppy Tess, who will be 8 weeks old tomorrow, will help me get through some of the hard days ahead.

Rest in peace Cocoa, you will always be with me.

Thanks for being able to return to this post. I miss my Cody so. He was just so calmly accepting of me as he would never have thought of any other way. As I have read in many other writings, one of the many reasons it can be more upsetting losing our beloved pets than some of our people family. Truly our best friend.

It's so wonderful to have this saved here. I just shared with my broken hearted daughter. She just lost her child...her Lola..the Golden Retriever that his been her life for the past 8 years. It was suden and instant and she is so lost lost and suffering so much and I can't be with her physically because she is very far away. I hope this will help her a little ..
