I lost my best friend of 11yrs today. He had a tumor rupture in his head after he ran into a glass door on Friday night. He went into a seizures early Saturday morning, and after 48hrs at the vet he was unable to move anything from the neck down. He was my best friend, my companion, and my night watch, he loved my family and was loved heart and soul by us all. I made the hardest call I have ever made and watched as he fell asleep in my wifes arms at 1431 today. His name was Shadow and he was a Weimaraner, I know that he lived a good life and he was a blessing to me and my family. He was one of a kind and he will live forever in my heart. I am unsure why men have such an attachment to there K-9s, but I know that his lost will be with me for a long while.

My heart goes out to You Bro. I'm on My 2nd Weimmie and could not think of a more perfect companion.

Sorry for your loss Swarrick. It really sucks to lose a companion and friend unexpectedly. I know I miss my companion still. May Shadow rest in peace.

Re: Good night ol Boy

Very sorry Swarrick. At least we had a few weeks to prepare for the loss of our Dax.

It may sound trite but when you are ready, another pup will help you get over some of the ache you are feeling and is also an honor to Shadow's memory. He'd want you to have a companion and someone to mind the door.

He looks like a fine dog.

Re: Good night ol Boy

The only problem with dogs is they don't live long enough. I lost my 13 year old Lab/Weim a year ago and I still miss him. I think first dogs are like first girlfriends. You never really get over them.

Re: Good night ol Boy

Sorry for your loss. They are mans best friends.
Here you have some lines from Napoleon.(Sorry if there are any mistakes in translation)

“Perhaps it was the spirit of that time and place what affected me so much. But I can assure you that no other event of my battlefields impressed me so vividly. I did a stop in my trip to observe the spectacle and to reflect on what was it's meaning.
I understood that that soldier must have had friends at home and in his regiment; nevertheless, it was lying there left by all except for his dog... I had observed impassively battles that decided the future of nations. Without releasing not even a tear I had given orders that took thousands of men to the death, but here I was feeling affected, deeply affected, up to coming to the tears. Wherefore?. For the sadness of a dog.”
Napoleon Bonaparte, on finding a dog beside the body of his dead master.


"There are two kinds of fidelity, that of dogs and that of cats; you, gentleman, have the fidelity of cats who never leave the house."
Napoleon Bonaparte, to French courtiers who had not followed him to Elba, after he escaped from there.

Re: Good night ol Boy

Always hard when a good pet passes.

We had a great doggie, shepard, colly mix grew up with the kids a good friend always. My son went to feed him 4 years ago in the yard and he was gone, laying in his spot. He was 14, it sure was hard. We waited a year and saved another good doggie at the pound and she is great. She looks like the first doggie but short hair and blond. We have pics of the first one and he will always be with us as your Shawdow will be too..
