    Very Sadened to hear this mate... there's very definitely something about a friendship with a dog, ever since they first shared a fire a tucker with us a millenia ago. Their Trust, basic needs, and forgiveness that makes it simple to understand why the relationship with us they have is so deep and enduring. because at the heart of it we're pretty simple too.

    Take comfort from the last point Red doesn't blame you for anything and would ask you to remember the good times instead. I'm sure there's been quite a few of us give our four legged friends and pot-lickers a extra hug or two this weekend after hearing your news. Glad to hear your still keen to share your fire with another one again shortly - they do enhance our lives.

    @gsp follower, how I know the pain...the things I think about are all the great things that Dog did, those memorable shooting trips up the river, our trialing experiences and all the rest...doesn't bring Dog back but some adventures certainly are enough to make you smile...one of the greatest comforts in all of these losses is getting a new puppy...not to be treated as a replacement, but a new hunting and home companion...
    ...amitie, respect mutuel et amour...

    ...le beau et le bon, cela rime avec Breton!...

    yep we make them immortal in our memories of a great day together or something silly they did.
    its what nonhunters dont get .about our sport they think its all about the killing
    its far from that there are birds and dog moments i,l never forget. .
    and when we share those things like on here for instance we make them live forever.

    Sorry mate, there are no words anyone can say that make things easier
    Hope you find him, and bring him home.
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    to be honest im in 2 minds i want to do him right but i dont want to see what will have become of him by now.
    as long as i live i,l never forget the look in his eyes as i tried to grab him before he went under:
