While organizing and sorting through pictures on my system, I came across a couple of pictures I took nearly two years ago, they brought a tear to my eye.

Before I show them, a little background is needed:



We lost our family dog, Chewy, suddenly and unexpectedly back in November of 2004. He had become sick one weekend, and was only in the vet for 4 or so days. Even though he fought hard, it was over pretty quickly. They suspected cancer or organ failure, but never gave us a certain answer. We brought him home and buried him in his favorite spot in the backyard.

Our other dog, Frio, who found and adopted us earlier in 2004, was still a young pup and didn't really understand what had happened until a few days later..........................

















........the following pictures show Frio at Chewy's spot, on a morning 3 or 4 days after we lost him:

I believe Frio began to understand what had happened - she had lost her friend, her teacher, and her brother. She stared at Chewy's grave for minutes, outwardly talking to him in a way humans cannot perceive.

She was saying her goodbyes.








She then laid her head down in mourning for several minutes longer..........

These pictures really mean a lot to me, and I thought I'd share them with you all.

I think they speak a lot about the animals of which we share this planet with. I find it truely amazing how we bond with other species on this earth, how we grow to love our dogs, cats, etc., especially how they grow to love us and whatever animal companions they might be living with.

Now that I came across these pictures, I will make sure to tell Frio that I love her, and I'll know that she'll understand. Always cherish your loved ones, always. Thank you for reading.

My opinion is 100% aligned with yours. I've had such experiences in the past and completely recognize the power of animals' feelings. Thank you for posting this!  Smile

I agree with you 100%. I had a big Golden Retriver named Casey for 10 years, and as with your dog, Casey got sick one day last August, and 4 days later it was over, it turned out to be cancer which had spread extensively throughout his body. My aunt has a dog Tiki who always came over to play with Casey, when Casey died Tiki still comes over when my aunt goes away, however she always looks around for Casey, and we bring his mat out for her when she comes over because she seems to like to sleep on it now, something she never did in the past.

There's no doubt that there is a stong connection between animals as well as between animals and humans, I probably never appreciated how much I loved that dog until he was gone. But I guess that's the way life works, it's true, you never appreciate what you have until it's gone.

I remember when my beautiful cat Turbo died last August 25, and my other cat came up and layed down next to her and meowed many times in a way that sounded like a cry. She did this for so long, but her noise was drowned out by my tears. She not visits her grave almost everyday. Animals are definetely more intelligent than we give them credit.


Here is Turbo. RIP, sweetie.

No, we are too arrogant for our own good.
