God bless him. God rest his soul. Brave warrior and his loyal companion.

Oh how I pray we remove the internal enemey from the reigns of power in our nation. God grant that we are wise enough, strong enough, and numerous enough to overcome all the wiles, evil and manipulations of the enemy to do so.

One thing about it, they sure know how to show love and loyalty. What a handsome and apparently fine young man.
We can’t afford to lose men like this.

“One thing about it, they sure know how to show love and loyalty.”

They sure can. Friendship can last forever. Even in a Dog’s life

One such dog was portrayed in the movie, Hachi: a Dog’s Tale. Based on a true story of a dog, who waited the rest of his life for his deceased master to return. This was the saddest movie I ever saw.

GoD And DoG poem put to music Normally animated pics/films do not appeal to me but that song and video is so touching, I've listened/watched it several times. Thanks for that link

Touching because there is a lot of truth to it.

I just watched it again and sitting here bawling like a kid.

Is there a way to transfer Youtube vids to harddrives without registering?

I’m getting ready to post a ‘dog’ story that I just ran across on a news story. I’ll ping you...talk about touching. It’s mostly pics but it will be an enjoyable thread. I’ll ping you when I get it ready. (if you want..)

Oh, Lord then you better not see the movie, Hatchi: A Dog's Tale. I can't even watch the trailer without crying. My dog is very much like Hatchi, both in personality in the type of dog. Mine is a Shiba Inu, the dog that played the puppy Hatchi. (adult was an Akita). My dog would do the same I fear if I didn't return.

Not sure how to do the Youtube transfer. There is a way though. Do ping me.
