I just want to say that all of your pooches are adorable in their own ways. HOWEVER, I still defy you to prove me wrong that they are as handsome as my "BEAR".

I was a kid. She was a special dog. She was so friendly and good natured that she didn't mind when the little girls next door would dress her up and play house with her. Very gentle and very protective at the same time.

Try telling thse two that they're not the most handsome dogs going. (Or at least the most convincing con artists.) Casey on the left, Quinn on the right. All the proof I'll ever need that there's a loving and generous God up there.

so yours comes in a really close second.

Rudy's almost 5 now (as seen in your previous post) but just as cute as his puppy photo -- only he's half the stinker now than he was back then.

I guess Lab puppies have to be cute or we'd all lose our patience with them.

5? w/labs,that means he'll start acting his age anytime nowBenR

Our past golden retrievers seemed to mellow between 14 months and 2 years, although I've got one that seems to be going for a record. Must have some chocolate lab in her. Nice puppy picture.

my Casey. I had him almost 15 years. He was my best buddy. You shoulda seen him in his prime. I think he was about 12 in this pic. He must have been a baseball player in another life. He loved to play ball and he could catch anything. I still miss him and it's almost 10 years since I had to put him down. That was the toughest thing I have ever had to do. I had the vet come to the house. I couldn't stand the idea of dragging him down to the vet's office and having him go on a cold steel table. He hated the vet's office and would have been upset at being there. He went peacefully at home where he was at ease.

Thank you lazywriter for the wonderful thread!!!

I am partial to the German Shepherds, as I had them sleeping on my bed since I was 5 years old until I was 16...

Your "Bear" is very beautiful, and thank you to the other "gentle bastards" that posted their German Shepherds...

Thank you gentlemen!!!

Livesteam, that is the pain I am talking about...spankdoggie

My two best friends when I was young were my first two German Shepherds, pure breds... the first got hip dysplasia, and had to be put down when I was 16... I remember when my mom told me to go to the garage and say goodbye to her... my brother and sister were sobbing like the bastards they were, god bless them...

She knew she was being taken to go die. Somehow we knew that she knew... I kissed her on the nose, and hugged her, and then turned away; that was the last I saw her... she looked me in the eye as though she understood, and it seemed that she was more sad for me than I was for her...

Someday I will tell about the second purebred German Shepherd in my youth... someday... She was put to death in her prime due to a divorce dispute in my family...

But buckle up...spankdoggie

how much it must have hurt. I hate to hear about the mistreatment of animals.

It's difficult for non-animal lovers/owners to understand how hard one can take the loss of an animal. I think we end up feeling so bad because we always believe that somehow we could have done something different or something more for them, in order to get them better.

In many ways our ownership of an animal is selfish. Though we take good care of them, feed them and give them a warm place to sleep, we never can give them as much selfless love as they give to us. How many times I remember going out of the house knowing that Casey really wanted to come along, but I didn't want the burden of having to deal with him when hanging with my friends. I was young and stupid in HS. When I got older I learned to appreciate his company more.

Last year I had to put my cat down. He too was 15. As a bachelor, he was the only other sign of life at home for quite a while. My fiance saw how sad I was over his loss and went to the shelter to get me another little guy. Well he's not so little any more - now he's 23lbs of fun cat :O)

All I can say is that one is truly blessed when they have the loyalty and love of a pet.

Both of my parents are still living, so I can honestly say the absolute worst day of my life was when my 1st shepherd died back in '98. (I was getting uncomfortable just reading the story about yours.) At first, I said I'd never get another one, but after a year and a half, I missed having a shepherd around.

Here's the link to a more recent pic of mine from last week's thread: HouseMoney "LOOK AT MY BOY!!!!!!!" 11/5/03 6:31am

Socrates (said So-Krates. Named after Bill & Ted's Excelent adventure came out) is about to go. He's a Gordon Setter mix; with what I haven't a clue!

I had a roommate with a Dalmation whose kidneys failed. He went from a 50# dog to about 20# in less than 2 weeks. When he was put down, my roommate, his girlfriend, and I all cried like babies.

I was going to attach a picture here, but can't seem to figure out how to change it from a .bmp to .jpg and get it where I can find it... Oh well.
