Oscar has Passed Away
Posted on 10/20/2002 11:30:07 AM PDT by Moleman
I apologize for the vanity- I am heartbroken today as my best friend and faithful companion has died. My tuff little Yorkie, Oscar, was killed last night by a coyote. The damn coyote snatched him right off of his rope in the backyard. Seems like the environmental nazi's want to keep all these killers alive so they can kill more domestic pets. He was my best friend in the whole world- his nickname was "Moleman"

I know how you feel and I'm so sorry.
I hope you find a way to kill that coyote.
Very sorry to hear about your pup.
Coyotes are particularly fearless and brazen unless they know they are being hunted. Count on them moving into more developed areas where they can't be. They're in all 48 lower states. Of course here in New Mexico we've got tons of them.
I'm so sorry to hear of it. I have a large dog of nearly 8 years. It's a breed that generally doesn't make it much past ten years of age. I'm already dreading the day...he's the dog of my childhood dreams and I can barely think of losing him to natural causes. I'd be even more devastated to lose a pet the way you did.
Sorry to hear about your buddy...
My best hunting buddy had a tough Yorkie...the little gun went after a wounded 12 pt. whitetail and the deer pinned him to the ground...
By the time we got to the barking dog the buck had him trapped in his horns ...amazingly he was untouched and my buddy finished off the deer..
The little guy would often take off at night and chase coons two or three times his size up trees and keep them there all night..he wouldnt come off...
Hard core coon hunters still talk about that little guy...
I know my buddy misses his Yorkie alot..
They are pretty special ...as was yours..

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my Huskie, Mick last year.

This is just too awful to even picture happening. I am so sorry for you and your best little buddy..

I'm sorry to hear this, my heart goes out to you.
I have a little fox terrier whom I love. We live in the country and I've seen coyotes around here and worried about this same thing happening to her. She's a fisty little dog but, would be no match for a coyote.

My heart is breaking for you. I cannot imagine the horror for poor little Oscar and for you. I have a Maltese, and he is my child, so I know how much you loved him.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
These little rascals (our pets) become family & the loss of one is never easy. I have walked in your shoes more than a few times, and know what you are experiencing now. Sorry about your loss
I'm awfully sorry, neighbor- I know what that feels like.

Sorry for your lose.
To: Moleman; Terriergal
I am sorry you lost your friend this way. Pets are a special gift from God and it hurts to lose one... especially this way...
I am pinging Terriergal because she will care too.
One of my cats dissapeared last month, on a nigt I heard coyotes running. I am going to kill more than my share of them this year.
Sorry you lost your friend. We all know how important a good pet can be in our lives. No need to apologize for the vanity -- thanks for sharing it with us.
We live on a golf course and my dog is a large male springer spaniel that we often keep tied on the back deck. One day, in the middle of the afternoon, the dog starting putting up a ruckus (not allowed on the golf course) and I went out to see what was going on. There, about five feet from the deck was a coyote. The darn thing didn't even move when it saw me. I had to scare the thing away.

It's pretty ridiculous when wild animals are stealing peoples' pets right out of their yards! The Left always seems to want a return to the Wild West days, except where it comes to folks' right to protect their property.
If it's any consolation, I plan to take a trip next spring to Western Nebraska to thin out the coyote population there.

We have lost four cats and a rather friendly skunk (it ate nightly on my back porch) to owls in our neighborhood. Two of the cats were mine. I was warned that the fine will break me if I kill an owl--they are protected. I saw two of them land at the pond behind my house one evening at dusk. Supposedly, they have a wingspan of five feet--I guess that's right because they were huge.

I am so sorry! :-(

As someone who loves their dogs to distraction, I send my heartfelt sympathies. We live in a remote area with LOTS of wildlife and our neighbors were losing pets to cougars, coyotes, etc., right and left. But then we got an Anatolian Shepherd and since he's been on patrol in our large fenced yard, not only have we not seen any of these predators, neighbors for about a half a mile haven't either. Not only is he a great deterrent for predators, he is the biggest baby in the world and I'm afraid we love him way too much.

I too, know how it feels and you have my sympathy. I lost my best friend over a year ago and although time does heal, I haven't forgotten how bad it hurts.
To: Fighter@heart; chadsworth
I am sobbing over your post, but thank you so much for sharing the Rainbow Bridge. I sure hope that is true.
A couple of months ago, someone poisoned my two dogs. They both died.
I empathize, trust me.

I know well the heartbreak of losing a beloved dog.
People who do not have a dog they love can not understand how you feel. They think you are crazy or foolish. NOT!
There is absolutely nothing on this earth that can love you like a dog will. My heart goes out to you.
When our dog died 10 years ago, my husband insisted on going to the breeder the next day to get a new puppy.
I thought he was nuts and a bit coldhearted. I was very wrong.
As miserable as we all were, buying that puppy was the best thing he could have done! She distracted us from the grief and made us laugh when we were sad.
We had her for years until she passed and I now have three of her babies (grown). They are pampered, spoiled, adored and cherished.
Maybe it was God's way of giving a puppy a new home. Best way I have found to say goodbye when losing a doggie is to make a new friend (or two). We got an dogpound pit bull when our yellow lab died and he never gave us much time to be sad. Best wishes. parsy, who is owned by a pit bull.

Did you come onto this thread just piss all over it? If you cannot understand how some of us feel about our furry family members, why did you click on the thread?
I have a large dog of nearly 8 years. It's a breed that generally doesn't make it much past ten years of age. My folks have a Boxer who will be 10 or 11 (I can't remember) this November. Boxers generally only live 7-10 years. My parents are dreading the day when he goes. He is their 3rd child, as far as they are concerned. Mess with Rocky, you mess with my dad.
What the hell is your problem? It's obvious you have one or maybe even more. I suggest you get that looked at.

I'm very sorry about your loss. Oscar was priviledged tio have you as his caring owner. I have no doubt he loved you alot. Hopefully we'll see all our loved ones in heaven, pets too!

Owls get that big? Wow!
I've never seen one in real life.
posted on 10/20/2002 12:43:39 PM PDT
So sorry to read of your loss. I know, if you could, you would have snatched little Oscar from those jaws of death.
But, you still can, somewhat. Get down to your local animal pound tomorrow, or as soon as you can and help rescue another little innocent from an equally cruel fate.
I'm sure that among all those little pairs of eyes, looking up at you, you'll find a new soulmate that needs your help and love. Try it, you won't come home alone.....

A pellet gun? You're far nicer than I am.

What a schmuck you are. Get out of the university, its corrupting your ability of relate to mankind.
Yes, this is a vanity post, isn't it? It's just a damn dog.
People who are cruel to animals or are indifferent to cruelty to animals are major risks as child molesters and serial killers.
Maybe you should not be teaching, or anywhere around decent people for that matter. I wonder how hard it will be to track your ass down and then your departmental supervisors given what you have so graciously provided in your profile.

I've had three dogs in my life and each of them lived to be 14-15 years yo. My heart broke each and every time one of them left, so you have my sincere sympathy Moleman.
What kind of lower than the bottom of a septic tank scum would poison a dog? Sometimes the human race is beyond my understanding.
posted on 10/20/2002 12:47:05 PM PDT
Sorry to hear that. Start shooting those coyote's, and put a few of their heads on poles around the property.
If you can't deal with that, buy yourself a good high compression pellet gun, and let them know they aint welcome. Works every time.
You are quite a lout.

There are no finer words, between dog and master. As Kipling said,
So why in Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
You know the answer. Best wishes to you.

Gee, xp38, that's quite a despicable thing to say, especially since you have this quote on your FR homepage "We pray that He will comfort and console those who now walk in sorrow."
I hope you are enough of a person to make an apology.
I was wondering what kind of a dog that would be, I like Retrievers, especially Goldens and so I found this:
Ottoman's Empire was killed defending the granddaughter of Bob Stevenson in a confrontation with a bear that decided to come toward her as she was playing with Otto on the porch at their family retreat. Both the dog and the bear died as a result of the defense. The best of vet care could not repair the damage but they will be forever grateful that Otto protected his friend and playmate, Emma, with his life.
May your wife, your best friend and your first born child. . .They're JUST people. . .
To: eddie willers
I know how you feel. My sympathies go out to you.
Sorry about your pet, they always add so much to living!
I feel for your loss. I've been there, losing my best friend, my lab.
The world turns upside down. I know.
Hang in there; you have friends here, too.
