OLD DOGS DON'T DIE

Old dogs don't die; they can't. They've merely run up ahead; they're waiting for us just out of sight. Close your eyes late at night, and you may smell her musky odour, or perhaps hear her snuffle from the next room. Pay attention, and you may feel her nose on your hand or the back of your calf. When your final day comes, you can go on to meet her; she's never left you and never will, and when you close your eyes for the last time, you'll open them again to be met with her bright eyes and wagging tail.

Old dogs don't die, at least, not those dogs who take the biggest chunks of our hearts with them when they leave us. Those dogs are inextricably part of our souls, and they go with us wherever we are. Though we may not see them, we know they're there because our heart is still beating; we still breathe, and those of us who have been truly touched by a good dog know our lives really started the day we met them.

Magnificent dogs don't die. They shepherd our dreams and only allow the good ones through the gates of our consciousness. They watch over us much as they did in life, and that moment when we step just barely outside of death or disaster, it's because they moved our feet or they stopped short in front of us as they did in life.
You see, a good dog is something given to special people. They are a gift from the universe and, though they're with us only a short time, they never really leave us. They are loyalty and love perfected, and once we are graced with that sort of love, we can never lose it. We merely lose sight of it for a time, and that is our fault; for how can love like that ever go away?

It can't. It can't, and it never will. For these brave souls trade their hearts for ours, and they beat together beyond sickness, beyond death. They are ours, and we are theirs, for every sunrise and every sunset, until the sun blazes its last, and we once again join the stars.

And he was a lover of people, there wasn’t a person who could walk by without him wagging his tail, wanting to say hi to them OR hoping for a cookie in their pocket. So many great memories of our Casey, a beautiful soul…always loving someone close by

We couldn’t have asked for a more loving companion. He loved his walks where he could always find a discarded water bottle to bring home, a true lab retriever.

Our handsome boy was happiest just lying close to one of us always thinking he was a lap dog. Our hearts are so broken as he is so sadly missed by his loving family.

Buddy and I put a lot of kilometers on our feet and paws as Buddy lived for the walk, 300 km this year (up to a couple of days before her passing)

450 km last year when I started recording with a handheld GPS starting in May 2018. I can’t imagine the kilometers we have put on over her lifetime!

Up to the end even when the pace had slowed down she let me know that she was loving every minute of our walk.
