Well Done Thou Good And Faithful Servant.





We lost our beloved Faust this morning. No one's exactly sure what happened, but he fell gravely ill yesterday and was definitely in Septic Shock. We suspect he may have been suffering from ulcers, but the only way to know for sure, we'd have to do surgery and quite honestly, it was already too late. When we got to the animal hospital this morning, he'd given up and was no longer responding to anyone. So we made that tough decision and had him put down and he'll be cremated along with his "baby" (a stuffed dog that looked just like him that his Grammy gave him. He loved it and he loved her.) As I'm writing this, there are tears just pouring down my face. There was no one that ever met that dog that didn't think he was the most wonderful dog in the world. Even my grandma, who lived her 90 years around dogs, thought he was the most special dog she'd ever met.

Part of the reason, I think, that I fell in love with my husband originally was because he was the type of man who would adopt a dog because the shelter was about to put him down. And he loved that dog. In fact, on our first date he showed me the picture of Faust he keeps in his wallet. Faust was also in our engagement pictures.

There will never be another dog like Faust. And a light's gone out in this world.

I am so very sorry, what sad news. Animals are so much a part of our families, and have our complete hearts.

They give us so much, and enrich our lives, and ask for so little.

I'm saddened by the passing of your friend and family member. Don't know what I'd do without my roomies to keep me company!

Soon as I can, I'd like to have another canine friend...

So sorry you guys are going through this - it is incredibly hard to lose a pet. Hugs and prayers for you.

We are feeling your loss and sadness. It hurts so very bad, we know. We lost our old guy the end of March. We feel so blessed to have had him for 15 1/2 years but the hole in our hearts remains... But we are better everyday and will hope the same for you. Your dear dog sounded like he was an exceptional companion!

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Faust. He will be forever in your hearts and memories and will be waiting for you on the other side.

The love of an animal does not die with his body. You will feel him get on the bed, lick your check, or rub under your fingers. Just because we can't see the other realm does not mean it doesn't exist. Just because we think it can't be real, doesn't mean it isn't. The love of a dog, the joy of a dog, is so magically transforming. I am sorry for your loss, the emptiness and sorrow. My first visit here today, hope I haven't poked my nose in where it isn't wanted. Peace for all

First visit here and I'm so sorry for your loss. We too lost a dearly loved dog a few weeks ago, we've had to get another as his companion was pining.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know about the gratitude and faithfulness of rescue animals. I have 10 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats.

Your hearts are broken today, and you grieve. But somewhere, soon, you'll turn to another dog in desperate times, and it will be your reward.

its been three years since my best friend of 14 years "joe" left me. i still get choked up when i laook at his picture. we creamated joe because it was the rainy season in louisiana and the water table was to high to bury him. he rode with me in my 18 wheeler for 14 years and still rides in alittle wicker basket. we have another "baby" to take care of now and ive grown to love this girl(sunny) like i loved joe. my heart goes out to you. i fully understand the grief one feels when you lose and important member of your family.
