Bridger 1997 - 2010

I lost my loyal hunting buddy to old age right before Thanksgiving this year.  He now rests behind the house in our CRP overlooking the Palouse.  Two roosters flushed from 30 feet away as I finished with the burial.  It was a fitting tribute that he would have thoroughly enjoyed...

Maddie Dog- Nov 1997- Dec 11 2010.

First of all the best dog ever!!!!, Great family dog, good hunting dog back in her days, great salmon fishing partner. You could walk Maddie with out a leash and she would stay by your side at all times. While camping she would have to go to the bathroom at night and the only thing I needed to do was to unzip the tent she would go out on her own and not wonder do her thing and then come back in the tent, if only I could have taught her to zip and unzip the tent. We would leave her in the backyard during summer and when we would get home guess who would be on the front porch? Neighbors said she had been sitting there all day not wondering around.

Maddie Girl you will be missed!!!!!

Otis 1995 to 2007 She was a puppy mill bitch. I thought I really messed up not doing my recearch on small type Labs. Someone put me in touch with a trainer named Brook. He helped make Otis the retierver I could have. She was a nice bird dog. Gone almost four years now. She died doing what she loved (lying on the cool concrete slab)

I have a story but too difficult to post. Might be able to eventually. All of the stories and pics are moving to say the least. Thanks for sharing. Sorry for all of your losses.

You could not ask for a better dog. Always loyal. Never aggressive. He could gently take a snack out of your hand and would never touch your fingers.

Had to put my 13 1/2 year old lab Tess down today. Hardest thing I have ever done. My wife has been telling me for weeks. But she was still following around the yard up till yesterday and wagged her tail till the end. I bought her for 500.00 as a eight week old pup. Trained her myself. She was my first and I always said I wish I had hunted with dogs sooner. She was a better hunter than I was. We spent 1000 of hours in the dark waiting for shooting hours together. The last two years she has had to stay home because her hearing was gone, and she would forget where I was. But she always followed along when I mowed the lawn. I was grateful that I had taught her hand singles because when her hearing was gone that is what we relied on.

She never met a person she did not like or a hunt that was long enough.

Spanky was never a hunting dog, but with some training he might have been.
Found him dead on the highway at 4am about two years ago will be missed buy all who knew him.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

I didn't see this one before I posted this on another thread but he deserves to be here too!  Our old Red Setter his last spring with our grandson.  He wasn't getting around much but tolerated this for a bit before moving.

Like others, I just spotted this thread and it brought back many memories. Our dog (Charlie) was killed by a resort owner's dog while my wife was walking him on a short leash. He was a great dog and like so many others, our dog meant the world to us. It hit me very hard, so I went to my shop and built a coffin for him. I took a brand new Corian counter top for a customer and cut it up to use my CNC machine on to make a headstone. He is buried on the sunny side of our home where he used to lay in the sun. There will never be another like him.
