Great pets everyone. Kind like our varied interest in knives. Lots of unique critters.
Not to single one out but Justin’s post hit home for me. Beautiful dog Justin and good on you Keith. Congratulations to both my friends.

She is great with my kids which are 8-5-3. We were talking one day and we were talking how the kids need a dog. He began to tell me about this pup he had picked out of his litter and was gonna keep for himself..... well as you can see that didn’t work out like he planned. He drove the dog all the way from Muleshoe TX to Unicoi TN. Thank you kindly kieth we all appreciate her.
My 11 year old chocolate lab was sick a couple weeks ago. Clogged nostrils and no energy. Figured it was a respitory thing but her stomach was swollen.
Basically within one week (who knows how long it was brewing), full blown cancer and internal bleeding. Too week and old for surgery or treatment. I asked doc what you do if it was your dog. I trust this doc very much. Kind of expected the answer. I loved that dog. In shock a bit. Figured her time was coming given her age but did not expect to have to put her down that day.
Lost a good friend that day.
My other dog just doesn’t understand why she is not there. Freaked out.
They say animals don’t have souls therefore cannot go to heaven. Could be misquoting that but I heard opinions on this.
Personally, I cannot believe a creature God made is not allowed in heaven. No reply required as I am not trying to start a theological discussion. Just mourning.
Miss her greatly. She was my best friend. Hope God has a spare shotgun I can borrow in heaven assuming I keep on the straight and narrow.

That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who leaves the world better than he found it; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in other's and gave the best he had.
