2dobies So sorry for your loss. 14 years is a good long life for a Doberman. I just lost my DJ about a month ago, and she was just 3 weeks shy of her 8th birthday. I know how you feel when you say it's strange to walk into the house without your dobe beside you. It hurts. It leaves an unrealistic hollow spot inside. I truly believe that when we get to Heaven, our beloved dogs will be there waiting. The Bible may not specifically mention canines, but it does mention horses, lions, lambs etc in Heaven, so there definitely will be animals there. If there are animals in Heaven, then Dobermans should be at the top of the list.

VZ-Doberman I know there aren't any words that make it easier but I do know your pain. I also know it never goes away.....you just get used to it. You are lucky you had he as long as you did. I envy you for that......

PrairieGirl Oh Bug, I am so, so sorry for your loss of Toad and the fact your house is empty of Dobermans

scorning So very sorry for your loss, Dobermans leave such a big hole in our hearts and our homes when they leave but I also believe their presence stays with us always.

Artemis Dobebug... I am incredibly sorry to hear about your loss. He was a very special man, to you first and foremost but he was loved by many other people - just Sunday I pulled up a picture of him for someone who had never seen a fawn doberman.

It doesn't get any easier, no matter how many there were before them or how long we had them for. Whenever I talk about imagining the day I will lose Nadia, hopefully after a long full life, 14 is the amount of years I secretly imagine.

His life is too be celebrated. But that can come later... no doubt in my mind he not only went where the good dogs go, he has I'm sure, a very special place reserved for him there.

A farewell to the Toad who was more handsome than any Prince I know.

And poor Clark (the junior cat) is still looking for Toadie to come in the door with me any time I return from running errands.

Sigh...

I know Aunt B.

Hang in there.

Fitzmar Dobermans Awwww Bug - I am so sorry that Toad is gone, even knowing that he had a VERY long life for a Doberman. I think the worst part for me would be coming home to a dogless house.... I have not had to do that since I got our first Doberman in January of 1993...... and I know it has been a heck of a lot longer than that for you!! Hugs to you - I'm truly in tears.

Oh, Bug. I just can't imagine how that feels. I'm not much of a hugger, but I wish I could just give you a hug right now.
