    Anna - can you tell me about Angus?

    Every now and then I search through people's old posts to try and find out about their RB dogs. Today I went through looking for things about ChristiansMommy's Dale and I was bawling my eyes out. Anyway, when I saw one of your posts in his memorial thread I decided to look for Angus' memorial, but I couldn't find it.

    I just wanted to know more about him, because I know you said he was your "heart dog". That makes me think of Nova, because she is my heart dog, and I can't imagine how hard it must have been to lose him.

    I'm sorry if this brings up bad memories, but I was just hoping it would bring up good memories ... and a few photos as well


    Oh, and how was your surgery yesterday? Are you feeling okay?

    I was pretty new here when Angus passed on so I tried to go back and read that thread and I was crying too much what a special boy you were to everyone Angus.

    Oh my how seeing this instantly brings tears to my eyes. Not in a bad way though, just the thought that you would want to know about my boy (and me...yes my surgery was fine, thanks for asking!) makes me feel so very lucky to have such good friends.
    One of the reasons you probably couldn't find his thread is because it wasn't started by me, it was started by Robilee.

    Boy, even seeing that thread again makes me cry. But please don't feel bad. I just loved him so much and even after all this time to think of him very much makes me cry. It hurts just as much now as it did then.

    He was the best dog we've ever had. Yes, I love all the dogs we've had but he was something special, not to us but to the many people that knew him personally as well as the people who only knew him through my pictures and posts. A lot of my thoughts about him are in that thread, sorry I still can't bring myself to say or even type them out again. The thread may be long but if you look you'll find my posts (sorry to make you search)
    As for pictures, I have sooo many so here are a few of my favorites...
    Even at the age of 12 he was the most perfect boy to me, just look at that smile

    This was way before we ever had a digital camera, I think he was just under a year old here. One of my favorite pictures of him.

    I think he had the most beautiful eyes. Even when he was getting on in years they looked so full of life.


    He was definitely a beautiful boy.

    Some may not find him very appealing, but I think he was the most handsome dog I've ever seen

    Needless to say I could go on and on and post a million pictures (they make me smile) but here's his album. I have many more pictures of him in my other albums but that's the one I started for him.
    Thanks again for making me think of him today.

    And Dale...oh gosh how I cried for that boy and Robyn. He was a star in such a short time and he really crawled into my heart. I will always miss him.

    Huney, Bon & Simba-missed so very much

    Are you kidding, Anna? I do think your boy is beautiful. He was lucky to have you and your husband in his life.

    I will never forget Dale either, he was such a handsome boy, too.

    I read through his tribute and I am bawling again. He does sound like he was a wonderful boy. It seems like everyone here loved him, almost as if he was the epitome of Pet Talk and what everyone feels for each other's pets. I have certainly loved everything I have read about him, he has touched my heart.

    Thank you for posting those pictures. He was a beautiful Rottie boy. Every time I see your avatar it makes me smile because he just looks so happy (and also because I love reading your posts).

    How I wanted to see him so badly but never did. Here's a coupld of my favorites.

    Here's one after a gift swap. He had just eaten some treats I'd mailed and he's wearing a bandana I had made for them.

    There are these special dogs in our lives (Duke is mine) and they only come along once, I believe. Tears as I'm typing. I heard somewhere they're called heartdogs. I also like furry soulmate. So, if you do get one in your life, you're really lucky. I know I cherish my Duke.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.

    In my heart you'll forever be.

    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    I'm not Anna, but I will tell you he was one amazing boy.
    I still remember hand-feeding him wet food in the vet's office. It's something I will NEVER EVER forget. And how he so eagerly took treats from me when he was sick.

    Mu most favorite memory of Angus is when he let my goofy Nala rest her head on his bum, while sitting under a tree in Ohio with Robin, Tori, Mark, Anna, Angus, & the girls.





    *Edited* to add a second picture.

    This is one of my favorites of him and his ball. You can tell how happy he was to play with it. (Warning, it's rather large!)
