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.

"My parents protected and comforted me when I was scared, and I had a family and extended family who loved me unconditionally. I was loved so much and had a wonderful life."

Walker's adventures began as a sire for Cedarow Labradors. Here Fancy is flirting with him, and Walker is not impressed with her charms. He would be saving all his love for Charlie and Sydney.

This is a pic of him in his youth. He was known for his gorgeous, rich, golden colouring which was spectacular.

Young and proud...that was Walker. He would have his future with Charlie and Sydney, his new siblings.
