His owner, who was known in local dialect as "Maria tu lu campu" -- "Maria of the fields" -- had lived alone with Tommy and three other rescue dogs, who used to follow her faithfully on her daily rounds and have now been adopted by the village.
I just lost my dog of 9 years. He had to have surgery for a blockage after he got in the trash. It was heartbreaking since the vet called to say he made it through surgery, was doing fine, they had removed the blockage (plastic wrap and foil) and we could pick him up in a day or two. The next day, the vet called and said he had passed away in the night. This story makes me wonder if it was some error on their part. Unfortunately, we were not able to be present, so I guess we'll never know. But the hole in my heart will always be there. He was the sweetest, most gentle dog. He was a pit bull and changed a lot of people's minds about pits because he was just the exact opposite of the stereotype. My husband and I would give anything to have him back, so my condolences to these people who lost their cat.
i have always had dogs. i have two now and they are my best friends! it is so hard to lose one. one that i lost more than 20 years ago and i still grieve him. treat them well, no one will ever love you more.
Dogs are the most intelligent,loyal,and LOVING of animals in the world. I am not young and got my first dog at 46yrs of age. Number two came shortly thereafter. I have been continually amazed at their abitlity to express themselves to my family and I. We have two labradoodles and believe we were blesed with twice the smarts of regular dogs (poodle/labrador retriever) abilities. I will not know what to do with myself once they are gone. I pray that if they should go they go peacefully without pain.
dogs are one of the most loyalist friends anyone could ask for even if you die they will still wait for you to get dressed, to feed them, & to play with them. no matter what they will be by your side. they will always be in your heart and they will always be in yours. dogs will love you no matter what and you can't break a dog's love for you as they can't to yours. dogs are truly a mans best friend and that is that you can't change that years and years have gone by and dogs have been mans best friend since the beginning. they might not be able to talk but they can show you that they love you. not matter how far you go you can break the bond the dog has with you. your not just the dogs' friend your its family, companion, & love. no matter how long you are gone the dog will never forget you. no matter what you can't break the relationship of man and dog. not with a sword, a saw, or a piece of glass. when you are sick they will be your sunshine as you are to them. that is the way it has been for the beginning of time and to the end of time too.
thats why i love dogs, they love you no matter what happens , no money or death..
This is so heartbreaking when an animal grieves for their master to the point of dying of a broken heart. This is one of those stories that makes you cry and wish you could help the dog get past its grief. :(
In Edinburgh we have a statue to Greyfriar's Bobbie. He was a wonderful little dog who was totally devoted to his master. When the master died the dog sat on his grave daily
It is entirely too sad....regarding comment, from BostonPD, it'd be a fitting thing to do, regarding trying to help the dog....but it'd be a might bit difficult, since the dog has passed away over a year ago.....
Dogs like humans have feelings and are loyal to the owners. This is a sad thing to happen to an animal that gave its life as a carefree dog to help its owner. I do not take this lightly nor do I take the murder of innocent babies. That is the most horrible thing a human can do. Yet we let the Drs. etc. put in a clinic and butcher them by the thousands. Now our Gov. is for it, leave the animals alone and kill the babies is our motto. This is really a twisted Gov. and the people that support it are also. WE are to love all people and help anyone we can. The law says it is the womans body so she has a right to do as she sees fit. She has no rights to kill anyone. The right to not have a baby should be exercised before she has sex. If she does not want a baby she knows it, so it is simple to have some surgery and prevent it. Then she would be free to do as she pleases with her body. She will answer to God as we all will for sins. Many people have no thoughts when it comes to killing others. Mothers to be are no different if they murder, or the boy that killed the children at the schools. You cant seperate murder. It is all the same. It is a sin we must answer for.
Surgery to prevent pregnancy? And it's not as "simple" as you think; what if she changes her mind later? And what about the women that get raped? You can't put a condom on a rapist. Just saying.
