This is a comfort i don’t have anymore but for eight years Simon was my friend. He was comfort for me. He felt like home wherever i was with him. I really miss him.
What happened to Simon?! He’s ADORABLE!!! Beautiful picture! 🙂
Thanks… He really was adorable… at eight he got an infection and a MURDERER vet gave us a wrong diagnosis saying he got hit somewhere and he was treated with the wrong medicine…He was in pain…so he is better now…
What an adorable shot of Simon! And I’m so very sorry he is gone and that the vet was the problem. Rest in peace, dear Simon. Run free! Thanks fo sharing this photo. Simon was indeed a beautiful boy.
Thanks Katie!!! 🙂 That’s really nice of you!!
Puppies are great comfort and this one certainly looks as though they are very comfy.
Very comfy!!! 🙂
Oh how sweet! Sorry you can’t be with him anymore. Hugs.
Thanks Linda!!! That’s it with dogs…They live much less than we do anyway so we gotta remember when they’re puppies that someday probably we’ll see them die…
This does look so comfy. I am saddened that Simon is no longer with you. He is adorable. As a pet owner/lover myself, I certainly sympathize. I will be heartbroken when my Pele is gone. BAD vet. I am so sorry for your loss.
Thank you dear…As i just said to Linda we always gotta remember dogs have much less time than us here…so we gotta be prepared anyway… sadly it was like that…but then again now he is in peace!! 🙂
For you Giulas, I hope you enjoy this.
George Graham Vest (1830-1904) served as U.S. Senator from Missouri from 1879 to 1903 and became one of the leading orators and debaters of his time. This delightful speech is from an earlier period in his life when he practiced law in a small Missouri town. It was given in court while representing a man who sued another for the killing of his dog. During the trial, Vest ignored the testimony, and when his turn came to present a summation to the jury, he made the following speech and won the case.
Gentlemen of the Jury: The best friend a man has in the world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has, he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honour when success is with us, may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads.
The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog. A man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer. He will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings, and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.
If fortune drives the master forth, an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him, to guard him against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes his master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by the graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even in death.
George Graham Vest – c. 1855
Thank you very much Val… I was really moved my these words and the fact you offered them to me. It was a friend’s gesture and it’s as truthful as it can get!!!! 🙂 Have a great week and may good be by your side!! 🙂
Adorable puppy. So quick to weave their way into our hearts. Sadly missed.
Thank you dear!!! 🙂
I’m glad you had a good dog, Giulas. Everyone should experience at least one good dog in his life. Sorry about the loss, though.
You at least have this photo of Simon, baring his puppy soul at you. Marvelous photo.
