I haven't been posting since my introduction. Three weeks ago, they finally found out what was wrong with my dog Quincy (the rottweiler in my YouTube videos) ... she was diagnosed with bone cancer.
While she could still eat and walk a bit but was in pain I decided to let her go last Thursday.She passed away peacefully into my arms and on my lap on an early sunny winter afternoon.
Quincy will always light a sparkle in my heart when thinking of her and that's what I did the whole time I was playing this tune.
At the moment of playing, It's exactly 7 months ago that I started playing.

I'm sure she had a fantastic life! My heart goes out to you. They seem to take a piece of us with them when they go.
Our Betty, who is my avatar, passed 4 years back and her step sister just over a year ago. I still get a little misty on occasion.

Sorry for your loss. Your playing sounds good.
Sorry for your loss. I lost my yellow Lab Casey a couple of weeks ago. She would have been 15 in April. She lived a good life and is terribly missed.
So sorry for the loss of your pooch. I wish their lifespan was longer. Very tough to end 10-15 years of your life with them. There's always the good memories, though.
Only thing to help is to get another pup. Plenty out there wishing for you to come choose them.
Amos and Cooter send their condolences.
Thanks for the support and yes a new dog will help me out here.
There is this cross malinois -rottweiler in a shelter over the border with the Netherlands, fingers crossed I will find a way to pick her up in these weird corona times.
We had to put old Smoke down just over a year ago. I still see his shadow at the front door on cold nights waiting to be let in. Gets me every time.
I think your playing is excellent for the time you have been playing, I can feel your pain, its stuck inside and music will let it out eventually it will soar.
I prefer dogs to humans, I have had a few in my life and love and miss them all, some of them even after nearly thirty years I still dream about them, and when I wake I am sad.
Keep playing, you are getting there, well done.
Anja it is sad to see you playing without quincy behind you knowing why she isn't there...
I also have a dog and it is such a great friend for us!
your playing is very good
Thank you so much also , Black and banjopaolo. I miss her like crazy! And each time I play this tune now, I will think of her since she absolutely loved this song. I have a video of her last days where she is listening to my violin teacher playing the tune slowly, she enjoys every second of it.
The shelter dog that now has been reserved for me has been waiting for 1.5 years for a new owner.
I really hope there is this click between us!

This whole thread is hitting me in the feels.
How unlucky are those, who do not have a dog that fell asleep in their heart <3
Nice playing, Anja...sorry for your loss. I know when a beloved dog leaves, it leaves a huge hole in our hearts. Takes a lot of time to heal.
Thank you Peggy!
