    I try not to read these posts because they sadly bring back the memory of my best friends loss 10 years ago (at just about the same age).
    But then I think of the good times and chuckle about what silly and wonderful people dogs are.
    You'll aways have those memories.

    Peace.

    Your boy will wait for you.

    We saw houses falling from the sky Where the mountains lean down to the sand We saw blackbirds circling 'round an old castle keep And I stood on the cliff and held your hand

    We walked troubles brooding wind swept hills And we loved and we laughed the pain away At the end of the journey, when our last song is sung Will you meet me in Heaven someday

    Can't be sure of how's it's going to be When we walk into the light across the bar But I'll know you and you'll know me Out there beyond the stars

    We've seen the secret things revealed by God And we heard what the angels had to say Should you go first, or if you follow me Will you meet me in Heaven someday

    Living in a mansion on the streets of gold At the corner of Grace and Rapture Way In sweet ecstasy while the ages roll Will you meet me in Heaven someday

    In sweet ecstasy while the ages roll Will you meet in Heaven someday

    It doesn't matter that 14 is a pretty long life for a retriever, it is always so damned hard saying good-bye to a brother.


    My thoughts are with you today, Anthony.

    Best.

    Very sorry for your loss.
    You know, I don't think animals are born with souls, but if you love them, then you can endow them with a part of your own soul. Because of this, I'm sure you'll see your baby again one day...

    Even on Father's Day...:(:(:(
    I hate goodbyes so much I don't know how you are coping with it all , all I can say is that I will definitely think of that beautiful presence every time I see a Golden Retriever. They were already my favourite dogs that I loved so much, now thanks to you and George, seeing them will be even more special to me. You are awesome. George definitely inherited it from you... he'll be watching over you, sending much love if that helps...

    I just lost my best friend Buddy on Apr 21 and my heart still looks for him. . I miss him so much. It is a hard thing to go through when you are closer to them than family. I hope it gets easier for you. My heart breaks for you.

    So sorry for your loss. Our best friends are like our children, but they never grow up and leave home.

    My heart aches for you and George.

    Condolences, I understand the hurt. Course now it’s got me choked up as my 13 year old Yellow lab/ golden mix snores next to me and knowing one day (Hopefully not soon)I’ll be exactly where you are. Hang in there.

    My girl is a golden mix. She’s 14 and really slowing down lately, not eating as much and I fear I’m in the same boat. Sorry about your loss
