Hey little sister who's your Superman?


It was just one year ago today that one of the most amazing dogs that ever lived stepped out of my life forever after he and I had spent the previous thirteen years virtually inseparable from each other.


Not a day goes by that I don’t think about Moby, and even now, a year later, I’ve been unable to bring myself to put his doggy bed in storage.

So there his bed sits, right in front of the stereo in the livingroom.

It may very well sit there forever.

Two days from now I’ll have an equally sad one year anniversary to commemorate.


happy moby

    And I don’t think there is anything wrong with keeping the bed.

    Leave it where it is…

    Congratulations on posting in mobys honor . Ripley will be proud also. I heard my springer spaniels tags tinkling for a year after she was gone . As long as you’re not sleeping in the dog bed you’re doing alright. Dwight Williamson

    Moby was a miraculous creature. The perfect embodiment of the canine. Loyal, loving, fierce. Gentle, caring, and ceaselessly concerned with the welfare of those in his charge. How fitting he should end up sharing his life with someone so like him. Pax sit super eum.

    They touch your heart and soul. “Man’s best friend”, an understatement. More like ‘Man’s true friend”. I feel your pain Scott.

    I feel your loss. My partner and I were parents to brother and sister boxers for 10 years before we lost Macie. Moe is still in our lives two years later and we cherish every day with him.

    I’ve never been able to understand people who say “It’s only an animal.” When you take on the joy of caring for a dog or cat, a bond develops that is unmistakable. You know that they eventually must leave, but if you are like me you never forget them. I lost my last dog over 15 years ago, but his photo is still on my desktop.

    Bison are only animals. Dogs are friends

    Have you ever considered getting another dog? Your heart is big enough to accept another

    Hey Scott
    Stay with it buddy – the bereavement and sometimes overwhelming grief are normal. They were your most faithful friends that deserve absolute remembrance. On many levels pets are so much better than humans. x

    There’s another pup out there somewhere who needs your love, Scott. And a bed.

    I as well lost my thirteen year companion on January 25. Like you I may never moved her doggie bed. Much sympathy

    I went another way.. when I had to have my dog (whom I had inherited from my mother) put down due to cancer, I cleared everything out. It all went to the local dog shelter.. bed.. everything. The pain of a visual reminder was too much. It’s unique… I feel for your loss.

    A year ago was tough for all of us, because you were so generous in sharing what you were going through. First George, then Moby, and Ripley. Most of us never had the pleasure of meeting these wonderful companions, but many of us have had companions of our own, and can relate to your loss. Be grateful that there are others out there, perhaps not quite like them, but possessing amazing personalities of their own, ready to claim you as theirs. In due time, it will happen, and they’ll knock your socks off.
