Or maybe because I let them say goodbye before we took him to the vets they knew he was gone? He didn't just disappear, they saw that he was gone. And they each had the other 2 still, so I don't know.   Undecided
That is possible.  My Rocky knew when I was sick and he was totally different around me and to me after my surgery and even after my radiation treatment.

So sorry about Hendrix, Joel. Sad

Looks like he was very loved.  How old was he?

Did he used to take naps on the toilet?  Cute!

I had thought they would be always looking for him.  Maybe they just don't understand.   Embarrassed



Dogs don't think like human beings.

They don't "miss" other dogs or persons.

If you're gone tomorrow, your dog won't miss you, that's the truth.

If there's a good trainer taking care of your dog when you're gone, you won't be missed.

That's just the way it is.

The dog does recognize you however, but recognizing and missing someone is two different things.

It was a she.  Smiley

We had her when she was already around 9-12 yrs old. She was a stray. We had her for a little over 5 years. She was the sweetest cat. She would actually come to you when you call her and want nothing more than just your affection. She didn't always want treats (like most pets) she just wanted your company. She was content laying on your lap petting her til she fell asleep.
She had multiple health problems (probably from being a stray most her life, although she was spayed when we got her) like heart murmur and overactive thyroid. We knew right away that her time was short, but it is still difficult to cope with her loss. It's sad but I've dealt with the loss of my grandparents and uncle better than this. I know that sounds horrible but that's the truth. I was much closer to this cat than some of my family members.

Yeah, she took naps on the toilet seat (and everywhere else).

But how can you say this with such certainty Hedge?  We had a dog pass and the other one definitely seemed to grieve.  She was still getting the same (or more) exercise...and lots of love and attention...but when we were relaxing watching TV or something she would make some pretty sad sounds.  She was very vocal....She also kind of moped around.  After we got a new puppy that all stopped after a while.

I wish they didn't grieve or miss us.  But I really think they do.

Joel, thanks for giving Hendrix such good years at the end of her life.

I understand the difficulty of coping w/losing a pet and it seeming more painful than some family members dying.  I don't think you should feel guilty or weird about that.  You lived w/that cat...probably not w/your Grandparents.  She was a part of every one of your days and probably always in a positive way.

Hang in there Joel...each day will become a little less painful.  Take care.

Hmmm....disagree with this to some degree.

An animal in some instances (or most) has better senses.  I've seen when an animal in a pack of dogs die, the others react aware of the situation.  The become more calm, ears down, & heads lowered.  As humans we label them as being sad.  Now I don't think they're crying over their lost companion, but they do sense "loss".  Sure, it's not like humans where is goes for weeks or months....but I have seen on my own accord lasting a couple days.  It's more of a 'displaced' sense of behaviour.

Also, I know again from personal experience that when i was a kid growing up, my dog would sit in the window & would not leave until I came home.  If I went some where from a couple days to a week, the dog would continue to do that until I came home.  My parents would describe the dog as having a loss of appetite & wouldn't move from the window.  Now sure, not all animals do this & my current dog does not do this.  But how can you be so positive that dogs don't do this unless you've seen it first hand?  When I let for the Marines, my dog did this for the first week or so & then 'forgot' as you would say.  But when I came home to visit 6 months later or 1 year later, she sure was happy to see me.  So much so when I left again, she would sit in that window waiting for another week or so.

How do you explain this?  When you do, let me know because I never could.  It wasn't something I taught this dog.  It's just when you say "dogs" don't do this, I can understand because it's not typical, but also it's not 100% accurate.

RIP little Koolie-Bear  Cry

He was a g/f's little 14 year old Pom.  Sassy, frisky and adorable.  When he was a puppy, her husband accidentally ran over his tail.  They had it amputated and he did fine.  Over this past year or so his hearing and eyesight were declining, but he still acted like a puppy.  She came home last night and didn't see him and accidentally ran over him in her garage  Cry Cry Cry  His hips were broken and surgery really wasn't a realistic option.  Her 12 year old daughter was in the truck with her.  Tragic.


I don't have any pictures of him, but he looked like this.

Sorry to hear about the accident.

Man, that must be horrific to run over your own dog. I almost reversed over Dakota the other day. Looked in the rear vision mirror as i was slowly going back, and just saw the tip of his black tail behind the car. I yelled at him and he ran inside sulking, so i felt really bad. Freaks the shit out of you though, if i was rushing i would have gone right over him most likely  Sad

Tanktank, I am sad to say  has passed on.  He was the best friend I ever had.  He was 80% blind and fully retarded due to a parasite in his brain at an early age.   He never barked, growled or bit anyone, and only brought joy to everyones path he crossed.  He was quite a character and will be missed, but had an absolutely fantastic life.  He passed away naturally due to age.
