That was heart-breakingly beautiful. What a lovely tribute.

I'm sure Angus is smiling right now at how much he was loved.

Anna, he is one beautiful boy, with such a loving, kind face. I can't begin to imagine the loss you feel. But how wonderful and proud it must make you to know that so many people get to share in the beauty of such a sweet, sweet soul such as your boy Angus. Hugs to you and your family and to Kay, for creating something you can keep forever to honor him.

Bless you all.

WOW. Kay, that was one of the sweetest things I have ever seen done before. What a loving tribute you paid to Angus, to Anna, Mark and the kids. Simply amazing.

<tears streaming down face>

Beautiful, simply beautiful.

Had to come back an add, I've always thought that Angus and Tubby had so much in common. They were both gentle old men who had been around. They just had that worldly "been there done that" aura about them. I haven't cried for Tubby lately and this video brought me to my knees, not just because of Angus, but because it reminded me of how much I miss Tubby. :(

I sure hope you two have meet at RB and are fast friends by now....

How fitting a tribute to such a wonderful and loved friend to all of us on Pet Talk! Kay you never seem to amaze me in your talent for designing things on the computer!

Anna, I cried as I watched this but with tears of joy and fond memories instead of grief and sadness. Thanks for sharing your wonderful Angus with us again through pictures you shared with Kay! I loved all the pictures but especially the one of him eating his ice cream cone! :D I still remember the picture on one of his birthdays of him eating his very own whopper! I was looking for it in the slide show.

Although, I have never seen Angus but this thread just broke my heart, he was a beautiful rottweiler boy and looked so sweet. Kay that video was great. R.I.P. Sweet boy :( ((((hugs)))))) I know from his pics he was well loved. Anna and Mark you gave him the best life he could ask for.

What an amazing and beautiful tribute to Angus. Extremely
well done.

05-05-2005, 07:51 PM
That was beautiful Kay,

05-05-2005, 09:52 PM
What a bitter sweet tribute. I cried throught he whole thing...yet laughed at the same time. Angus gave us all such memories, and you captured him perfectly.

Hi Angus baby..
I was thinking of you today and thought i'd stop by to say a quick hello. Have you met all the PT Angels? How about my aunt's sweet Teala? I'm sure you've been the gentleman you've always been and showed her around the bridge, huh?
Love ya and miss ya sweet man...

07-08-2005, 01:17 PM
Hey big boy..
It was your "little" brother's birthday the other day. I betcha were having a party at the bridge for him, weren't ya? Did you play with any of the balloons? I remember pictures of you playing with them, how cute! :D Just thought i'd stop by boy and wanted to say thank you for letting mom give me a picture of you for my site. You were a true epitome of your breed. :)

Sweet Angus Man~

Here I am thinking about you again today. I was having a conversation with Leslie (AdoreMyDogs) about you last night. Sweet boy I remember everything very clearly. Thank you for letting me feed you that can of food. Although a sad situation, it makes me smile that I was able to do that for you. Do you remember that sweet kitty that was in the vets office? He kept batting at your daddy's feet and made us all smile.

I just wanted to stop by and say "HI", this is my 18,000th post and I dedicate it to you. Your mommy and others have helped me get this far by being there for me and making this place what it is.

08-03-2005, 09:43 PM
Sweet boy..

I was at work yesterday making biscuits..
And the song I used for your slideshow came on. My mom and I both stopped what we were doing and wanted to burst into tears.
Everyone else was wondering why, and we told them, everyone was quiet until that song was over.. we were all thinking of you.

08-08-2005, 04:36 PM
Oh no! I am terribly sorry for the loss of Angus. My heart weeps for you.


R.I.P. Angus, everyone will miss you so much, please, protect and watch over Anna and her family

Steph and Jes

Your entries of thinking of Angus makes me want to cry even more. If you ever need to talk, I am open to you.

08-30-2005, 05:54 PM
your message about angus broke my heart. my prayers are with you and anna. RIP angus. you are dearly loved and remembered.

09-06-2006, 01:22 PM
Hey Angus!

Just thinking about you more than usual today so I wanted to stop by. Hope you're having fun up there with your big red ball, sweetie!

{{{HUGS}}} Anna & Mark

09-07-2006, 09:22 AM
I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved friend, Angus. I hope he has lots of buddies at the Rainbow Bridge and never has to feel pain again. xoxo

09-07-2006, 09:52 AM
Dear Anna and Mark,

No words can express my sincere condolence on the loss of such a beautiful, kind soul. I remember all the Findlay Park reunions. The first dog I couldn't wait to see was Angus. He was always there waiting for you to throw the ball.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies in the passing of a gentle giant.

RIP beautiful boy.

09-13-2006, 12:14 AM
Hi Angus, I didn't know you well but I would appreciate if you would listen for just a moment.

Someone that loved you very much is hurting right now and needs some help from the rainbow bridge. Could you guide Kiki back to her mommy, whatever you can do would be appreciated big guy.

I know Kay has a real soft spot for you so please help us.

I came here to do the same thing!!
Kay and Kiki need all the help they can get!!
Please help them Angus!
Please...... :(

I don't often come to dog memorial and almost never to this thread as it's to hard to deal with, but Mark had told me that this thread had been brought back up so I finally got up the courage to come and take a look at what had been posted.
It's so nice to see that my dear sweet boy is still thought of, and that he's even thought of in time of need. It really does my heart good to see this.

While I'm here I just thought I'd post that it's now been over 2 years since he's been gone.
I still feel that we didn't just loose a dog, we lost a member of our family...our son. He was and always will have a huge place in our hearts.

We think of your often sweet boy. I still keep my locket with your ashes around my neck as I can't bear to let you go.
Sometimes I think of you and smile because of all the wonderful times we've spent together, and other times I think of you and cry and can't wait to see your beautiful face again.
I keep hoping that hurt will go away, but it doesn't. I just don't think about you as often as I did in the beginning. So that in it's self makes your absence easier to deal with.
I sometimes feel guilty for thinking about you so much and not your sister Keisha. But I know she understands.
Just thinking of you both tonight....

09-25-2006, 10:27 PM
Oh Anna it must be so hard, I can totally understand how you feel. I truly think your boy helped kiki, you should feel proud.

09-26-2006, 03:32 AM
I totally understand how you feel, though it makes me sad that you're still feeling the pain after 2 years because I know it'll be the same pain I feel when Duke leaves me.

Angus had one of the best doggie smiles ever. I always loved seeing his pics.

09-26-2006, 04:45 AM
Anna {{hugs}}. I often think of Angus, in fact whenever I hear the word Rottie. To me that word means Angus, the dearest, sweetest ambassador for a breed that could ever be.
I never met him, still miss him, that is how special he was, is.

Rotties are getting so much bad press over here at the moment but you only have to look at this thread to know just how wrong people can be about the them.

Angus you are still a true ambassador for your gorgeous breed - I wish everyone had the chance to know you

09-29-2006, 07:49 PM
I do believe Angus was the first dog I cried about on Pet Talk. He was such a handsome boy and I know he is still sadly missed. Anna, I can believe that the hurting never goes away. Thank goodness we have memories. {hugs}

07-14-2007, 12:48 AM
Angus, I was watching your video (http://petevents.com/~simba/anguslove.wmv) today. I found it because there was a thread on another forum about memorial videos.

The tears are rolling... It's been nearly 3 years since the day I last saw you but you still cross my mind often. The smell of the vets office is still remembered. Your memorial, with the little Rottie stuffie and your bandana your mommy gave me, is still here in my room and will never be taken down.

It still amazes me how much you managed to touch my heart big boy.
Please send hugs to your mom and dad from me and tell Bon he's a good boy.

Love you.

07-14-2007, 09:16 AM
That's so sweet Kay.

I too remember everything that happened that weekend. The smell, how you fed him and of course the final goodbye. It stays so fresh in my mind.

I've thought many times about writing in this thread, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. No matter how long he's gone, the feelings I get about him are so strong. I guess it could be as Nancy said, he's still here and very attached to this family.

While I'm here I might as well say a few words (even though he already knows)....

Hello sweet Angus,
You know how I feel about you and thank you for all the wonderful years me and your dad were able to spend with you. Hardly a day goes by that I don't think about you, you were one of a kind. I don't cry like I used to, but only because I won't let myself .
I know you are happy and whole again, that little playful pup that used to run around the car and chase Keisha (do you two still do that? I hope so:)).
I also hope your keeping watch over those newbies up there (like Bowser & Sherman).

I want to thank you for being here for Bon. He's a scared little boy-not a fearless man like you were but we love him none the less.

Your always in my heart.

Love you big man (((HUGS))) Your momma

07-15-2007, 06:20 AM
Anna, I've been meaning to tell you that sometimes Dasher tilts his head and reminds me so much of Angus! Sometimes I can see Angus in his face. And I know how much you miss him. I'm afraid that's the way I'm going to be about Duke :(

07-15-2007, 12:57 PM
Everyone here still loves you, Angus...Kay, thanks for posting that video.

09-02-2007, 09:20 AM
I can hardly believe tomorrow will mark three years you've been gone. It seems like it's come and gone so fast, like it was only yesterday I was holding you in my arms and caressing your fur.

I'm going to the dog park today and will be thinking of you. I remember the last time you went. You were such a good boy.
You had such fun that day, I could see it in your face.
It's hard to think of you and look at these pictures today, but you know what? I just heard that there will be another rottie coming today. I'll be able to give her the love that I would have given you if you were here:)

I've been looking over the posts in this thread and It's all I can do not to cry (I can't do that, I've already put on makeup;))
I still wear you ashes around my neck and will be thinking of you and all the fun we had together.

OK, the tears are starting to come so I need to end this.

I love you Angus.

09-02-2007, 06:27 PM
I'm glad I'm not wearing makeup because the tears would have really ruined it. It doesn't seem like it's been that long already. I'm glad there will be another Rottie there. I agree with whomever said "When I hear Rottweiler, I think of Angus" I do that, too. I think he's a wonderful ambassador to the breed. I hope you're feeling his spirit there today.

09-02-2007, 07:52 PM
I am listening to such a sad song, and looking at these pictures of Sweet Angus makes me cry. I was not a part of Pet Talk long enough to see Angus or get to "know" him. Reading this thread, I can see that's really a shame for me. Angus looks like such an amazing boy and I can tell the bond you two had was powerful. He was such a handsome, handsome boy! I am so sorry you lost him.

RIP sweet Angus. :( I am so sorry.

09-02-2007, 08:04 PM
hi Big boy, don't you worry, I gave your momma a big hug for both of us today.
Thanks for visiting me in my communication with Kylie, I was very honored.
Say hi to Shaianne and my grandparents too would ya?
big hugs

09-03-2007, 09:10 AM
Anna, I can't believe, three years already. Angus was the sweetest boy. They never really leave us do they? Always in our hearts.{hugs}

09-03-2007, 04:05 PM
((((Anna & Mark))))) you will be in my thoughts.

09-03-2007, 05:54 PM
Anna, I put this in Duke's thread. I thought you'd want to see it. I think it's a sweet poem.

I was cleaning out my emails and found this poem. I've kept it since I found it in November 2004, two years before I had to say goodbye to my dear dog. I was going to wait on posting it but thought I might forget about it. I saved it because it expresses how I, and probably others, feel about our heart dogs. My locket is the bracelet I made from one of his old collars. I wear it always, along with an old tag and a silver heart.


Old dog in a locket
That lies next to my heart
I will always love you
As I did right from the start.
You were right beside me
Through the darkest of my days
It was your kind and gentle nature
That made me want to stay.
Now I hold you in my arms
Your breath still warm against my hand
Our hearts still beat together
And I wonder if you understand.
Through the hours that I held you
Before the light did leave your soul
I knew a way to keep you
Forever in my hold.
I snipped the hair from around your eyes
So I would always see
The beauty that surrounds me
Even in times of need.
I snipped the hair from around your ears
So I would always hear
Music in the distance
To quiet any fears.
I snipped the hair from across your back
To bring me strength in times of need
And the power of your essence
Would always be with me.
I snipped the hair from around your heart
That beats in time with mine
So I would know that love would find me
At some distant time.
And so, your life slipped out of mine
On a quiet, spring-like day
But I knew that part of you
Was always hear to stay.
Old dog in a locket
That lays next to my heart
I will always love you
Even though we had to part.

09-17-2007, 12:42 PM
wow. Three years. It doesn't seem like that long. I think about Angus sometimes. He was one of the first faces I started to recognise when I was new to the board years ago.

01-02-2008, 09:18 AM
Val, thanks for the poem. I couldn't read all of it, it still hurts so much when I think about him. I find it easier just to not think about him. I know it sounds mean, but it's the only thing that works for me.
Hey big boy,
You know I don't visit this thread often, there's still and always will be so much pain when I think of you leaving. But I do still think of you every day. I still wear my pendant with your ashes in it.
I know you know I love you. There doesn't have to be any words spoken.

One day we will see each other again and what a great time that will be:)

Lots of Love, Hugs and Kisses to you sweet man.

08-31-2008, 08:07 AM
Hey Bub,
Nancy told me you were around keeping watch, thanks big guy. You always did take care of me.

I woke up this morning crying and thinking of you.

Four years ago today is the day we were supposed to go to the Findlay dog park with you and the girls.
Your dad and I just couldn't leave you. And even though we weren't able to be with you all day, at least we could come visit.

This year I'm going to the park and taking the girls and Simba with me. Bon and daddy are going to be staying home, but I know that will be less stress on the big guy since it's going to be so hot.

I've got my shirt on that Kay made in honor of you big boy, and I'll be wearing it with pride.

I love you:love:

I'm in tears here, Anna. We all miss him so much. I know he's at the bridge happy and healthy. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

08-31-2008, 12:51 PM
Anna i am sobbing right now, i read the poem,,, (i know your pain)

08-31-2008, 02:07 PM
I made this 4 years ago when Felony and Angus both passed not too far apart..
Felony's 4 year passing anniversary was on August 24th.

08-31-2008, 02:35 PM
Wow, I cannot believe it's been four years. I still have his bandana that you gave me, and a little stuffed Rottie right on top of it, displayed in my room.

Love ya big boy.

09-01-2008, 08:51 AM
Four years. It seems so long ago,and just yesterday, at the same time. :(

09-01-2008, 09:16 AM
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I am going through the same thing with my lost cat Tricky. Blessings for Angus and his parents and auntie. Angus is in a harmless place now with no pain.

09-02-2008, 05:06 PM
{{{HUGS}}} to you, Mark and the fur crew.

11-10-2009, 03:08 PM
Hey Handsome man,
I just got done watching the video (your video (http://petevents.com/~simba/anguslove.wmv)) Kay made for you. It still makes me cry but the tears are not as much nor as sad as they used to be. It makes me smile more because you were such a great dog and we were so lucky to have you with us for as long as we did.
It also reminded me what great friends we have here at PT.

I just wanted to save some of the feelings I was feeling at this moment and luckily I can save them here.

Hugs and kisses to you & Keisha
Love your momma xoxo

Hi Angus, since I joined PT it seems like you were the first to go to the bridge, Big Guy. I know you have been the official greeter there for some time now. Such a handsome face to meet all our beloved pets there.

Have fun and play hard!!

11-10-2009, 11:05 PM
Today I sat and re-read this thread ......... and am unashamed to say the tears are rolling down my face still.

He sure was a marvelous boy .....

My doberman in the last 6 months has been starting to challange my rottie she just passed away. I dont know if it comes with age and maybe they are sensing that and the youngers try to take over

01-29-2010, 12:44 PM
Oh my goodness.... he sounds like he was a sweet boy. :(
I feel the pain of this because i lost my Beagle, Goldberg, three years ago right before christmas.

RIP Angus and Goldberg!!!

12-19-2010, 01:08 PM
It's been so long since I've posted in your thread. It's not because I don't think of you often that's for sure, but I came to find the post that our wonderful friend Phred wrote:)
I know he's there with you now. Let him know that we miss him here on this big dirt ball.
(((HUGS))) from your mom:love:

12-19-2010, 09:10 PM
I know that Angus would have been one of the first in the queue to welcome Phred :)
I think of Angus often too ..... he had a special place in my heart ...:)

Dreamt of Angus last night, Roxey was there too. So lovely to meet that big boy even if it wasn't for real.

Awwww that is so sweet. I hope you gave him a hug from me:)

09-14-2011, 08:35 AM
I still can't believe it's been 7 years since you left us sweet boy. I think about you so very often because I don't want to forget our special times together. I watch the videos of you and it still hurts, but not as much as it did. I'm thankful for that, but I know that pain is easing to make room for when the others pass.
Your always in my :love:

09-14-2011, 07:15 PM
Oh Anna - 7 years??? :(
I was thinking of him and you in the days leading up to letting my beloved Captain go in August.
I still remember the pics you took of him with his Big Red ball - oh my didn't he LOVE that!!

Thank you so very very much for the lovely card you send and the "re-gift" :). You really touched my heart.

Huge Huge Hugs today, and everyday.

09-14-2011, 07:52 PM
Wow, 7 years. Hard to believe. I have no doubt that he is up there playing with my Rocky, Jenny, & Ginger. :love: HUGS Anna. :love:

09-21-2011, 10:05 AM
I cannot believe it has been 7 years :(.

09-22-2011, 01:43 PM
I too cannot believe its been 7 years already. :( Angus was such an amazing, special dog with such a gentle spirit. Hugs to you, Anna. :love:
