    This morning my beautiful baby boy George Patton passed away. He was 14 years and 4 months old. I miss and love him so much, he brought love and joy to not just me but everyone he came in contact with. The world was a better place with him in it.

    I'm crying more now than I did when my parents died. Just can't stop.

    If you all could do me a favor, whenever you see a Golden Retriever will you please think of my boy?

    See you all down the road my friends.

    Anthony

    I am very sorry for your loss. Our little companion of 17 years died about a year ago, and when they are part of the family it is such a profound sadness. My sympathies.

    I'm sorry brother. Theses are the holes we're left with...that cannot be filled.

    Embrace them. They are what make you you. And remember them and smile. That's what they would want you to do.

    When my best mate and fur brother Tuk” passed, I cried even more than when my dad passed away. Dogs give unconditional love. I feel your pain. Sincere condolences.

    I’ve always thought Golden Retrievers were uniquely kind and human-like. RIP George.

    I still well up when I think about Shelby, my Rhodesian Ridgeback Chow mix, though it has been a decade and a half. So I really get it. I am sorry that you will need to continue the journey without him. Thanks to you he is somewhat famous here in this corner of the world called Strat-Talk. There will be little things that will spark your emotions and it will be the up and down rollercoaster for the next few weeks. Your were blessed to have been able to share 14 years with him. I have had others pass through my life since Shelby. They are all different. I am saddened by your loss and it brings a lump in my throat. But George had a life few dogs get. Thanks for being his human.

    - Sincerely,
    Bowmap
