I'm so sorry for the loss of Porter he was a beauty. We loss our Duke some 20 years ago so don't wait that long to have a dobe you can fill their life and your life full of happy memories. We have a redhead female now that is the love of our life. Go get that puppy and share pics

Thank you so much, all of you.

Today is harder than yesterday. I didn't really expect that. I just had a complete breakdown because I saw the bags of his food we had stored in our basement. We expected to have him for so much longer.

Poor Porter. Not fair, buddy. Not fair.

I am so sorry for your loss. We never have them long enough. I lost my sweet Pit Bull "Spanky" almost 5 years ago, I was on the computer looking for a Doberman the next night. I purchased my wonderful Tango a few months later and he helped fill the hole left in my heart by Spanky passing. I cannot imagine my life without dogs in it. I am one of theos people who heal faster with another pup/dog to love on. I hope your new pup helps your heart heal.

I lost my boy in February and said never again,but I have just seen pictures of my new boy,born last week. I felt so disloyal but a friend said that Boysie would be flattered that he had been such a good ambassador for the breed that I wanted another. It's so so hard and I am not sure how I will react when I see him in the flesh. I have a wonderful GSD but Dobermen are just so special.

Gosh, I sat bawling after reading all these . I really am terribly sorry you lost Porter. I think it's really hard no matter what kind of pet we have, but dobermans are really special. Please don't beat yourself up for wanting another puppy. I think Porter would be happy that a little one found it's way into a good home filled with lots of love. He will never be replaced and he knows that, but he also knows you need the love of another and he will understand that. Rest in Peace Porter and run free at that bridge. You and your husband are in my thoughts and prayers.

Your feelings of wanting another Doberman are not wrong. Your heart will expand when your new Doberman arrives. Porter's place will never be taken.
Heal your heart quickly, and reflect on all the Dobermans in shelters, laying on concrete floors, looking out through a chain link fence as people pass them by. Save one (of any age) and you will be rescued.

Here is a page of our "Happy Tails" adoptions. Every one was pulled from shelters where they would have died without rescue, foster homes and adopting families. I photographed most of them, and I am always amazed by the new lease on life they've been given, and how they will make a great addition to their adoptive home.

There were times I anticipated never being able to live through that pain again, and that was even before Porter passed. It's surprising to find ourselves wanting another so soon - not as a replacement to Porter, because he can never, ever be replaced, but because we still have so much love inside us and just want the joy back. We just want that funny, smart, heartwarming Doberman energy in our lives again. Is this wrong? Is this an insult to Porter? I can't help feeling - stupidly, I'm sure - that he will wonder how we moved on so quickly.

Thank you for the beautiful pictures of Porter. It does take so long to heal broken hearts.

I lost my brother on Xmas-eve from a sudden MI in 1985. He was visiting us from Oklahoma. For years I was unable to put up a tree and it took great effort to even shop for the children's gifts.

It seems that all the years do help, but we never forget those we love.

Wish I could give you hugs. RIP sweet Porter.

I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. That's awfully sad. They say that time heals, and it does to an extent, but it seems like it's never quite fully.

Thanks for your kind words!

Of course you're not being a loser, it's perfectly normal to want to honour the memory of a much loved & missed pet. I still cry for my lost dobes, especially around the anniversary of their passing, but it does get easier with time.

Thank you for sharing pics of your Porter with us, what a handsome boy he was.

Hugs to you.

What a handsome fellow Porter was. I love the picture of him in the snow. I've always been a sucker for the head tilt. Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks everyone, for the kind words and for looking at Porter's pictures. He loved the camera. Back before camera phones, he would hear me turn on my digital camera and immediately sit to be photographed. What a ham!

A big thanks PortersMama, for posting & sharing more fab. photos of your Porter...tributes and honoring them (lit candle of memories), does help.
- the one pic. in the gray/black sweater looks special to me, such a happy boy / clearly loved by family

We both lost our senior dobes a few months apart (last year) & added new puppies a few months apart.
- I am sure now, Amy & Porter have found each other (in heaven) and are best friends...playing together daily & sharing our family secrets / fun stories.

Boy, did this make me SMILE. I surely hope so, because I can't think of a better friend for him to have than your Amy. Thanks for that comforting thought, Beaumont. And so glad you could see that Porter was loved.

Thanks for your kind words!
A lot of old people say in the end they just want to die because they have lost so many people that mean so much to them, and that they can't fix their broken hearts anymore. A parent who loses child is fighting constantly to stay with us.

The accumulation of losses can weigh heavily if you can't accept new love into your life and cherish the love you find with the love you lose.

So well said, Vivienne. The ability to open ourselves up again can be our saving grace.

Hi PortersMama,

I am so pleased I have been able to read all of these messages, as I have heard you speak about (well, read your words) Grizzly but now I know about Porter too! He was such a lovely handsome boy from his photos. Is Grizzly related to Porter? I agree with other opinions, the reason you wanted another boy so quick was because how wonderful Porter was and such a huge part of the family, he would be honoured. I hope Grizzly had been able to fill your hearts with love again.

Thank you so much! Grizzly has absolutely filled our hearts with love again. I think I just saw him as a distraction for the first couple of weeks, if I'm being honest. But I think that's at least half normal... But now...well, this guy is so much a part of my life that I don't know what I'd do without him. He is my little muffin.

Grizzly is related to Porter, yes. I had it wrong the first time around, but I think it's that Porter's dog-mama is Grizzly's dog-papa's grandmother... Making Porter his half-great-uncle, I think?

Weird that I've thought this through...
