    RIP Choppa

    When I saw my beautiful 12yo GSP this morning I knew today was going to be one of the hardest I've ever had.
    The sparkle was no longer twinkling in his eye and his little stumpy tail had lost it's wag - he was just a shell of his former self.
    So we went for a walk in the paddock and sat for a while, just the two of us like old times in the hills.
    His head rested easy in my lap and my arm was wrapped around his deep chest as I tried to focus through teary eyes.
    Rest easy big fulla and thank you for the memories Chop Dog

    Sorry for your loss mate, RIP Choppa

    JUST A DOG.
    From time to time people tell me, lighten up it's just a dog or thatís a lot of money for just a dog. They donít understand the distance travelled, the time spent, or the costs involved for just a dog.

    Some of my proudest moments have come about with just a dog. Many hours have passed and my only company was just a dog, but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by just a dog and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of just a dog gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day. If you too, think itís just a dog, then you will probably understand phrases like just a friend, just a sunrise or just a promise.

    Just a dog brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. Just a dog brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

    Because of just a dog I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, itís not just a dog but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. Just a dog brings out whatís good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

    I hope that someday they can understand that itís not just a dog but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being just a man.

    So the next time you hear the phrase just a dog, just smile, because they just donít understand.
    (some one once sent me this its not mine to claim but I totally understand what it says)

    Short of family and friends, nothing else comes as close to cutting the heart of man as the loss of a good dog. I feel for you junkie.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I and my wife and kids bawled our bloody eyes out when we had to put our German Shepherd girl down. In fact I bawled more then than I did with either of my parents passing. That's not to say I had more grief for our dog, just it was different and with my olds I think I was able to keep a reasonable stiff upper lip whilst with the dog it just all came out which probably is a damn sight more healthy than the stiff upper lip. And it is just not about that moment of her passing, it is about all the memories of the girl thru different stages of my life Ė like kids growing up around her etc. Something that even with a replacement dog I will never experience again. My sympathies to you.

    He's a handsome bugger, talking about the one on 4 legs of course.
