on life, and Luther...

Why are we being punished? Why did Luther have to die? The last few years have been extremely trying times, to say the least. Now THIS? Why? It's not fair. Kim is devastated. This was her baby! Her Mighty Fortress! The leaning tower of Luther. You'd know what I mean if you ever met him, or any other Borzoi for that matter! I always thought that HE was going to finish ME off with all that hair! I was so allergic to that dog... But I too miss him dearly. I finally broke down and had a good cry after work tonight. I was researching plaques, stones, garden monuments and I just couldn't hold back any more. Damn dog! Dogs are my weak spot. I love all dogs. Even those that annoy me or threaten to give me an asthma attack! Those that pee and poop inside the house (they all do) or eat your food or lick you on the mouth are all game to me. I love dogs! I even play Nintendogs on my DS. Luther was special though! He was big and dumb! All fluff and big goofy woof! Oogly eyes! Crazy huffing dog. He was a very sweet, lovable lap dog. Yes, he always thought that he was a small cuddly lap dog as he was raised by 7 Jack Russell Terriers! You should have seen him the first time that he was in the ring! Talking and jumping about! Just like a Jack Russell puppy! It made everyone, including the judge, laugh but it surely didn't get him anywhere that day! Don't forget to check out the 'pictures' link to see some dog pix! Luther and friends... I miss him so much. Damn dog. I want to let Tammy and Tony know that he will always be loved. That he will always be with us and remembered fondly. He was a bright, white spot in our lives if even for a short while. Luther was a lover of all things! Car rides! The outdoors! Chasing things! Licking small children! Leaning on adults. Laying in the cool grass! Sleeping on a secluded slab of cold cement! What a fine dog he was. So cute. So cuddly. Utterly adorable. He will be missed...

bummer man. i'm sorry to hear that. i'm sure he's in dog heaven though, chasing bones that actually run away, and eating from endlessly refilling dog bowls!

One of my two cats died last January. I feel your pain, buddy. "Only animals," but boy is it awful. On the upside, the feline that remains has been spending his year basking in all the attention.
