When animals go, it’s sometimes as bad as it gets.

Picture is of Dutch guarding my fathers grave.
Lost Dutch today, he was my fathers 85th birthday present.
Dad served in WWII as a staff sergeant.
Miss them both greatly.

Sorry for your loss. It’s especially sad as Dutch was your dads, and he’s gone now too. All the best to you, and yours.

Prayers up for you all.

Last year I lost my cat of 12 years that had been with me for a long time. I sat with her at the end and said “goodbye, I’ll see you again I hope afterwards”

We can hope that it’s possible. I think it is.

I’m sorry. My dad passed away Sunday before last. He was 88 and a WW2/Korea vet. The best generation of American’s is leaving us.

You didn’t lose a friend...your friend is saving a seat for you; Right next to your dad in Heaven. (God loves his animals and He loves His children, as well.)

Shed a tear, and then rejoice-—your loved ones are with your Father and they await you and are deliriously happy.

(NOW; go give a deserving abandoned dog or pup a beautiful life! You sound like a wonderful person who could make an abandoned dog the perfect friend.)

Prayers for you. My husband took a job overseas. My 17 year old daughter decided she didn’t want to live with me. My dog doesn’t leave my side. The only better friend is Jesus. No doubt it’s very painful for you.

I know how you feel. I have lost two Westie’s in the last twenty year’s and I missed them so much that I have a new Westie puppy.
I mourn the loss of mine and your beautiful little Dutch.
God Bless Dutch and your Dad.

Dutch is beautiful! He looks like my girl Tally, who I lost a few years ago. She was the best dog ever...I had to teach her to bark.

As one Westie lover to another....I'm sorry.

We've had three Westies.... 2 died after long (but not long enough) lives ('SASSY' and 'A GIRL NAMED BUBBA'). We cried long hours and days when they passed. We now have another ('BUBBA TOO'), but he's now getting tired and slow.

Suggestion ----> Get another one. It kinda eases the pain.

GOD Bless.

God is watching over Tally.
I wish to ask you if you had a Westie?
Mine have all barked full throttle up at most everything...:)

Sorry to hear of your loss, hate to see that generation pass.
Hope that we can instill an attitude that the present generation does not disregard the accomplishments of the past.

This hits close to home. Our family has a Dutch look-alike name Ripken.

My heartfelt sympathy to you for the loss of your beloved family members.

God Bless you and may He heal your sorrow.

Thanks to all, Dutch was a therapy dog to a group of individuals that were very appreciative of his presence. He dedicated many hours of service to people that otherwise would not have known his grace.

I think one of the wisest choices I've made in recent years was to record conversations with my grandfather and some of his friends and other relatives about their experiences during World War Two and Korea.

It is amazing some of the things they saw and did during the course of their lives. Not just their service in the military, but their enduring and overcoming the Great Depression and their exploits in the 1920's and 1930's.
