Fate happened and my newly adopted dog Buck, passed away last week Tuesday in the morning, probably because of an underlying heart problem.
In the two months and one week she lived with me, we made long walks , I taught her a series of commands and tricks and just taught her how to swim, this was going to be the summer of her life.
She couldn't handle dogs, she couldn't handle most people, her attention span was short when I adopted her but here she found the rest she needed so much. She could stare at me for a long time and her attention span became the opposite of what it was, thanks to our trainings.

I hoped to have her for many years, after the death of my Quincy. She was perfect in every possible way.

This tune is the tune I was just teaching myself and I have been playing only this tune since she passed away.

Oh gosh...sorry to hear about that. At least you gave her a nice home for a little part of her life. So sorry. Music heals...nice fiddling.

Thank you... it hurts, but I have to go on. A new soulmate will help me. And music heals indeed.

Quincy - so sorry to hear of your loss. Last week we lost "Julian" to GI cancer. You can see him on my FHO avatar. Often hard to separate grief that comes from passing of our human and pet family loved ones. Hopefully music will help. I know Buck is listening.

So sorry Anja, that’s a hard one. I hope the best for you. Music will help a little. Your new violin sounds really good and you are playing it very well.

Pet is too small a word to describe the place these creatures hold in our lives and hearts. Don't give up .... there is another friend out there waiting for you.

Quincy ,

So sorry to hear about the loss of your dog. Early deaths like that are the hardest. Best wishes for you.

The Power of the Dog

THERE is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.
Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find - it's your own affair, -
But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!),
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone - wherever it goes - for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear!

We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent,
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve;
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long -
So why in - Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

Thank you all so much for the kind words.

Today I will pick up a 7 month old malinois pup at one of the animal shelters of my province. She was born in the shelter after police and animal protection confiscated several dogs from malicious working dog breeders. She was placed in a family , but they brought her back only a few months later. Some people don't see gold even when they are holding it in their hands, my luck.
I will name her Dixie <3

I’m very spray about your buck Quincy... I remember another dog left you non much time ago... it’s very sad!
Your playing anyway it’s improving fast: good intonation, double-face stop... great!

Then I love this song, you know? Also if it so famous that can get annoying...

I used to play it often with.a pArticular arrangement...
