Comments15/07/2016 #24 Kim WheelerI have often pondered this question @Charles David Upchurch and as yet cannot come to a happy solution apart from we all are missing love..and irrespective of how this love comes to us, we all, all miss it when it's gone...with the added knowledge that sadly we cannot change time and go back but we have the memories and the photos which usually make me smile then make me weep, for the aforementioned loss of thats persons or pets love.....13/07/2016 #23 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#21 #22 Very interesting questions, @Charles David Upchurch. I know I thought that my first dog, Tangenyika, would be the only dog in my lifetime. I held that thought as truth until five days after her death....and then I decided to cauterize the wound with a replacement puppy. It still remains the single best and worst decision I ever made. Life is complex and I decided to follow the path that promised to yield more love.13/07/2016 #22 Charles David Upchurch... Why must we painfully miss the ones we love, when they are gone? Can't our love for them when they are with us be enough? I will always love my grandparents, for example, and the peace of their remembrance has gradually lessened the pain of missing them. Can it be the same with closer relatives, and with our animal children when they are no longer with us?13/07/2016 #21 Charles David UpchurchI'll include my beloved canine, my dog daughter Friendly, in an upcoming post, @Kim Wheeler. After 10 years, it's still hard to think about her without a few tears. I recently read a comment somewhere from a still-single mom (do they still call themselves widows?) who couldn't bring herself to accept a proposal from a wonderful man that she loves, because she is still so in love with her late husband, and can't let go.12/07/2016 #20 Kim Wheeler@Lacey @Lisa.........thank you both (in fact all) the kind thoughtful comments..i guess getting badly injured and taking forced retirement pointed me towards the life I now have and altho wracked in pain I still love walking and just adore the company of my dogs ....and cancer..yeah what a brutal vile illness...and what does a dog do to deserve such suffering........makes you wonder..thanks again for all the kind comments...cheers me up no end...x12/07/2016 #19 Lacey Wofford@Kim Wheeler, your story is amazing. I'm not only incredibly jealous that you get to roam such a beautiful countryside with your best friends (your incredible rescue pups), but the fact that you've accomplished so much in your life despite the hardships you faced is astounding. I'm also very sorry for your losses and can only imagine how painful it must be to lose your dogs to cancer. Thank you for sharing.12/07/2016 #18 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Kim Wheeler, your dogs are beautiful. I know you feel lucky to have them but they are just as lucky to have a human companion who loves them as deeply as yu do. I'm so sorry for your loss. The loss of a beloved pet is never easy. My cocker spaniel was only 7 when hit with cancer suddenly. She lived 3 months after her diagnosis and having to PherTS was one of the toughest things I've done, so I can truly feel your pain. I have a 13 year old Boston Terrier (old style.. ) who I worry about now as you do Big Bear. I wish a dog's life span was much longer but life is unpredictable. This is a great story for others suffering from physical trauma! Thanks for sharing and your dogs are beautiful.12/07/2016 #17 AnonymousI love this Buzz. It shows the true bond between humans and canines. A dog can absolutely be a motivator for humans. This is one of the reasons they are used in therapy. Dogs give us so much and we try to return what they give to us and try to be the human they think we are.11/07/2016 #15 Mickael Angelo Yusufidis@Kim Wheeler joy and peace to you, I'm eight weeks pain free after a decade bout of dealing with chronic pain illness. I've walked the depths of hell, all nine levels and I'm so very excited to explore the heavens, keep journeying...thank you for the inspiration.11/07/2016 #11 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI personally will never tire of reading about a person's bond with their dogs. There is something profoundly reliable in the love we share with our dogs. I am so glad to have given you the impetus to share your story and your 6 fantastic canine companions!
Keep on walking, @Kim Wheeler - perhaps we will get a take a stroll in the coming years!
Cães~ 100 buzzes
O cão (Canis lupus familiaris1 ), no Brasil também chamado de cachorro, é um mamífero canídeo, subespécie do lobo, e talvez o mais antigo animal domesticado pelo ser humano. Teorias postulam que surgiu do lobo cinzento no continente asiático há mais de 100 000 anos. Ao longo dos séculos, através da domesticação, o ser humano realizou uma seleção artificial dos cães por suas aptidões, características físicas ou tipos de comportamentos. O resultado foi uma grande diversidade de raças caninas, as quais variam em pelagem e tamanho dentro de suas próprias raças, atualmente classificadas em diferentes grupos ou categorias. As designações vira-lata (no Brasil) ou rafeiro (em Portugal) são dadas aos cães sem raça definida ou mestiços descendentes.
