Good Bye Old Friend

Koda has been a faithful companion for many years, this morning was my old bird-dog's last.

Going to be hard, not having him walk beside me, not seeing him as I look out of my windows. He was getting up there in years. The last month has been the worst, lost most of his muscle mass, barely moved. We took our last walk early this morning, he never stopped wagging his tail.

So long my friend, may the birds be plentiful and the fields unending, you will be missed, terribly so.

  2. Very sorry to hear of your loss. Lost my dog of legends a year or so back. Man, that's hard to deal with :-(

    Get a puppy when the time is right and remember the good times :-)

  7. Dang. Sorry to hear that, AG. Dogs just don't live long enough. I have a GSP as well. They are really wonderful, remarkable dogs.
