My Bestest Friend

my dog had been in my life since i can remember, my frist memory was coming home from a friends place and seeing him tied to the basketball hoop, with my brothers hypeing him up and my dad cursing cause he can't get the fence up. i sat with him all afternoon and i think that's one of the reasons i was so close to him. i loved taking him for walks and when i was older getting up early and running in the nice cool morning. i would sometimes sit outside with him for hours just talking and i know it sounds werid but just the way he looked at me was like he understood everything i was saying. he was always around, happily chasing birds but for some reason he was afraid of ducks, even though his bred are used to hunt with, stange really. anyway i would love it when we were younger we lived in a house in New Zealand and we had a big deck by the front door, my brothers and i and scooby would all crawl under the gap in the stairs and sit under the deck and talk, so my dad put a board up to stop us, but scooby and i could still squeze under, we would stay there all day, it was some of the best days of my life. he showed us how much he loved us when we moved to Austraila, we really couldn't afford to ship him over so we gave him to some friends of ours who had a farm. he howled all day and night and refused to eat anything, i was so glad becuse it meant that we had to ship him over, i was so happy i had my mate back. what was funny was when we went to get him at the airport he heard us and started jumping around in his box, he was so happy he nearly tiped the whole thing over. but as he got older i had to stop takeing him for runs as he was too old and had arthrites and finally he got cancer and we had to get him put down. i remember holding him as the vet injected him and just hugging him as he went off. it took me a while to let him go. i just didn't want to leave him. i took his lead collor, my brother has the collor. i have the sign off his doggy house on my bookshelf in my room and his lead hanging over it, i have lots of pictures of him everywhere and i still talk to him. i love my scooby and always will. he was my bestest friend.

I'm really sorry about Scooby. It's always very depressing when your best friend leaves you on Earth alone. But he will lead you to other wonderful creatures in life. Just think one day you'll be with him again. To him it probably takes a second then your with him but for us years. I know it sounds confusing but I believe that's the way it is. Anyway isn't love about letting go? Again I'm terribly sorry about Scooby. I'd feel the same way.

I am so sorry to hear about Corker, and what a blesing that he went so naturally. Be happy with the lovely memories you have of him.

My dog just died yesterday. I cried all the way through your story. My greatest fear of all was that something would happen and I would have to have Corker put to sleep. I glad that didn't happen at least. I glad he went naturally.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. <br />
<br />
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. <br />
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. <br />
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. <br />
<br />
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. <br />
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. <br />
<br />
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. <br />
<br />
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. <br />
<br />
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
