They are every bit as much family as siblings or children.Sorry to hear that. The buggers really get to us, it's hard. He was lucky to have you, and you him.
Thanks. Gordon was a rescue, and we have two more that are rescues still with us. As hard as it is to lose a fur friend, it's even worse to not have one at all.I am very sad for you, as all of my best friends have four legs and bark a bit. But they are still my best friends. All the dogs in my neighborhood come to me for recognition, and I hope it stays that way. It is so good that you gave a home to a dog with sight disabilities. I have been told by vets that dogs don’t see very well anyway. Unfortunately dogs don’t live as long as we do. As we have always had dogs, we have had many sad days, as you are having now. I would recommend that one way to recover from the grief would be to adopt a shelter or rescue dog. That is what your dog would have wanted you to do.
Thanks Mark. I'd encourage anyone to consider a special needs dog to adopt. They have as much to give as any, and watching them is an inspiration. Gordon never let his blindness or his dysplasia slow him down in the slightestThey're all special. They all leave us. I hate to say one has anything over another or that there are degrees of loss, but Gordon was a special guy taken in a loved by a special guy. Not a lot of folks get in line for a special needs puppy.
