    I never knew how much you would be missed the day you found me, so many years ago. You never asked for anything, you always gave more then you were given. But you knew your were loved. It's true that I knew your life would be gone in a blink of an eye, but in that blink you gave me more than twenty humans could ever try.

    I know how you feel. Lost two in the last couple years. The pain never goes away.

    It's so sad when a loved pet dies. I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope he didn't suffer much.

    Big, I don't know the backstory here, but I'm guessing pretty close to what happened to my brother. Harrison jumped into my brother's boat 24 years ago. They were in MI for a long weekend. The dog, mostly if not all Newfoundland, just attached himself to my brother, who was like, "Whose dog is this?" The locals said he'd been around for weeks, but never seemed to find an owner. He was extremely obedient regarding sit, stay, up, down, and come. No collar or tags. When my brother was pulling out his truck to go home, in the bed was Harrison. My brother stopped and took the dog out saying, "Go home!" Harrison jumped in bed again.

    When he got home, the wife said, "We've a newborn, and a 3 year old. 2 bedrooms. We cannot handle a 135 lb dog!" So they took out advertisements for a month for local papers. No calls.

    The dog pulled their youngest daughter at 18 months from a car in the street when she got out the front door. He killed a coyote that came up and made camp in their spa during the winter. The dog was a super protector. He bit a child predator, the kids uncle and pinned him until my brother came home. He was a hero. Best. damn. dog.

    I know how much pain there is involved with losing a good friend. I'm betting Sparky had a wonderful life and was happy every single day.

    Sorry for your loss Bigrebnc...

    That's why I will never have another dog. It just hurts too much to lose them.

    I lost my dog a year ago. I got her for my 16th birthday. I still think about her, actually looked at pictures of her today. I even cried about her about a week ago.
    I feel for ya! :( Dogs are the best!

    Do not watch Marley and Me any time soon, you will sob the whole movie.

    There never was and never will be a human as honest and faithful as a dog. Too bad their lives are so short.
