I just absolutely love these dogs and the pictures. My favorite is the sun behind the dog. A super picture.

I am very sad to tell you that Indy had to be put to sleep this Monday at 11am 19th of December 2011, he would have been 14 next March. As you can see from the photographs Indy had a wonderful life and his passing was a loving and gentle experience. I could not ask for a finer companion and I hope if there is an afterlife we will one day be reunited because I miss him so much. I have had many hundreds of messages from all over the world, I knew he was special already but it is a comfort to know he touched so many lives. I don’t think so many Tears have been shed since Rin-Tin-Tin died. He will be reunited with Rob, our next door neighbour, who features in the above photos and who left us in March this year for Rainbow Bridge. .

Michael, our beloved Doberman, JJ had to be put down on December 19, 1992.  I always remember the date.  He was such a wonderful companion as was your Indy, I’m sure.

I know he will be sorely missed.   I miss my border collie  Lady Bug  ….who would be 15…… I also hope that thier is an afterlife so we may be reunited with all our loved ones…… You can tell by your beautiful photos that he was a special dog and much loved.  My Prayers go out to you…..

To Michael Haslem,

I lost my beloved Border Collie/mix over four years ago.  He had been by my side for 18 years.
The grief was almost more than I could bare. It penetrated every pore of my being and was in
every thought through out my days. I lived alone at the time, and could not get out of bed for days.

To my amazement, his yellow tennis balls started appearing in open areas in my bedroom and
when I peered out the window another ball was in the yard.  He had not been able to see or hear or smell for almost a year.  He had not played with the tennis balls for several years.  He had collected them and put them under our bed for safe keeping.  Yet, here they were around my bed, and in the yard.

One day, I heard him run up the stairs; something he had not been able to do in years.  I found myself waiting to see if he would run into the bedroom.  And, another day, as I stood in the kitchen, I heard him lapping water from a place where his bowl had once been.

I know now, he was trying to console me as best as he could.  He was saying, “listen, mom; can you hear me?  I can run up the stairs, again!  My health is restored.” 

My Mother passed ten years ago.  I frequently ask her to find my furry boy and throw a few tennis balls for him.  It was his favorite activity. 

Michael, take it one day at a time; then one week, then one month.  The precious memories will turn into gems of joy.  Keep these moments of joy close to your heart.  Then one day, we will find  ourselves at the rainbow bridge.  Your Indy will be waiting for you, as my furry son will be waiting for me.  Then, reunited, we will walk over the bridge together.

I was so touched to learn of your recent heartache, i to have felt the deep pain of losing  faithful friends… over the years, the only thing i can say is, that the pain does subside, ….. Try too focus on the many years of happiness and not the end, although i know it’s easier said than done——-Rememberance is love s last gift…

Thought i’d send you a little poem, hope you don’t mind——- IT BROKE MY HEART TO LOSE YOU, BUT YOU DID NOT GO ALONE, PART OF ME WENT WITH YOU THE DAY GOD TOOK YOU HOME, A MILLION TIMES I’VE THOUGHT OF YOU, A MILLION TIMES I’VE CRIED, IF LOVING COULD HAVE SAVED YOU, YOU’D STILL BE BY MY SIDE——-       take care from Paula.W

Thank you all for your beautiful comments, he was an amazing lad, being a collie he was a one man dog and all though he’s no longer with me physically he was so much part of me the pain of letting him go is tempered by the knowledge that I am a better and wiser person for knowing him for so many years. His last lesson was death is just a transition and the peace and love I felt for him when I looked in his eyes those last few minutes was a profound moment. All your comments have struck a chord of recognition in me and I thank you all for your compassion and empathy.
