So sorry for your loss, Bruce. Having lost our darling Alki last year, I know all too well how it feels to lose an old friend.

Thanks again, everyone for your comforting words, thoughts and prayers. Here is a picture of my sweetie. Her name is Alexandra, but we called her Missy A, Miss A or just Missy.

Sorry , Shane. Did not mean to hijack your thread with Alex's passing. But, in the theme, she was a rescue dog who made it clear that she had found her home-it just took me a little longer to realize it.

I know a lot of people say their rescue dogs are the best dogs ever, and it always puts me off a bit, because I think a carefully chosen pup that spends it's whole life with one family is actually the ideal situation. I have both - one of these dogs is a rescue, and one was purchased from a carefully selected breeder, from champion parents. We love them both equally, and they love each other. Here they are wrestling.

Never a hijack. Never even entered my mind.

This thread is all about Love. I can see you really Love Alex. I'll stand right next to you and cry.

The loayalty and love is both ways for a dog and his human.

In a final act of loyalty, Hawkeye, the dog of slain Navy SEAL U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Jon T. Tumilson walked up to his fallen master’s casket during the funeral in Rockford, Iowa, and then laid mournfully down beside the body for the rest of the proceedings. Friends and family of Tumilson, who was among the 30 Americans killed in the August 6 Chinook helicopter crash in Afghanistan, took photos of Hawkeye’s tear-jerking tribute. Some of these shots were made into a time lapse video, which you can watch below.

What a full gamut of emotions here. Wonderful thread and excellent posts. I have laughed and cried. Shane I especially liked your opening post of the shelter dog. I truly believe that pets are God's gifts to us. Here are two of ours that reached out and tugged on our heart strings.

I picked Orie out of a box of give-away puppies in front of Wal-Mart on the way to the Oregon International Rally when I went in for paper towels. Kee Kee walked into our garage when he was a tiny kitten and don't tell him but he thinks he is one of the dogs. He has permanently adopted us as his family. However our German Shepherds came from a breeder in Wisconsin, our late Max and now Koa.

There isn't a day that goes by where their playful antics or expressions of affection don't brighten our day. Some days I feel like we are like the herd in Ice Age. We are all different but we seem to travel everywhere together and get along just fine. DH has volunteered at an animal shelter in New Mexico and stayed for several months and also volunteered here at home at a local animal shelter before he found employment. We love animals. All kinds.
