Man’s best friend

My old Boxer has moved on and it has left a big hole in my life and the rest of the family too. If you try to analyse just what it is that bonds you to a dog their is no apparent logic. You house train them and socialise them and ensure that they cause no nuisance to other people and you feed and house them. In return they somehow enrich your life and offer unconditional feelings and companionship.

Just the simple things like not being in his bed or looking at you to take him for a walk or knocking his bowl for some more food all impact on you at a sub concious level.

Although he was unwell of late he always did his bit to get the family going and attempted not to show the discomfort he must have been in.

We will all miss him and I will also remember all those early morning walks and his canine wisdom on what we humans are doing to screw up our world.

You may like to read his blog at wooshus-boxer-dog-blog which had some interesting views on our world.

Bye for now old fella’ may the sun always be on your back, the grass green and lush, your belly full and the smells fresh

  3. Hi Jon,

    I felt so sad when I read this post about the passing of your friend and family member. Dogs can be such good friends, give them food & water,take them for a walk, the occasional treat and somewhere to sleep. When you get home late from work after a long day, your tied and cranky do they complain? No! They come up to you with a smile on their face because they are happy to see you. They eat the food that you throw in their bowl, they don’t complain because they didn’t get to go for their walk that day. Dogs are there for you, in the good and the bad, if only all friends were like that.

    Take Care.

    P.S. I am sure he will have found a nice sunny spot to lie in DoggyHeaven.
