Quite simply,
It's better to have Loved/ lost a dog
then never to have loved one at all.
They depend on us... The Willing of Heart!!!

My DH and I have come to the conclusion that we need a Dog in our life to complete us. We would each probably say about the other that he/she loves the dog more than me but we like it that way

My beloved pets were worth EVERY minute spent training, feeding, cleaning up after, playing with, vacuuming dog hair, giving meds, worrying about, car sickness, stolen toilet paper rolls, middle of the night potty runs, only staying at pet friendly hotels so that they could come on vacation too, etc............... I lost my Buddy last year on November 26th (almost his 1 yr Bridge Day), and I would give anything to have him back. Every pet I have ever had was WORTH it. They have made me a more loving, compassionate, and patient person. As a person without a pet right now (working on some health issues), I miss them in my life SO much. Consider yourself Blessed to be able to love and care like you do!

I've been enamored with EVERY dog I've ever helped raised, fostered, and/or owned!

I've kept fond memories and goofy photos of each of them, even the temporary ones.

My old boss's dog.. Chico the Chihuahua ..she brought him in when she first adopted him and have helped raised him every day at the office. now that I've left the company, I see him about once or twice a year, but he still remembers what my car looks like and comes to me right away shaking in excitement. My old boss (now my friend) would always say I was his "second mama"

And now my new munchkin... Hunter my GR ..

All of these babies have brought SUPER happy, funny, and heart aching feelings, but I don't regret any minute!

I think I'll be that crazy dog lover till I die.

We lost our family dogs when I was a kid. My sister and I just balled. Dad said "you hurt so much because you love that much." I couldn't quite wrap myself around that at the moment he said it, but I've thought about the truth in those words as an adult when I've lost beloved dogs and people I've loved. Personally, I don't differentiate much between dogs and people. Except that dogs are what mankind should aspire to be like: unconditionally loving, incapable of holding grudges, quick to forgive. A gift to mankind for anyone who can see ...

To grieve is to have loved..

I too lost my heart dog almost two years ago. I still grieve deepy for him. I have learned to treasure each day that we have Jenny, and yes, we will lose her too one day.
