    Lost my snow clearing buddy today. Got hit by a car and had to be put to sleep. It sure is different now plowing without him. Collar hangs on the rear view mirror. :cry:

    Hey Summit,

    There are pounds and rescue societies FULL of prospective plowing buddies just waiting for a second chance at a decent life. Some ended up there because of neglect and some ended up because thier owners had to move into apartments or other reasons. Dogs are always the first to go for non-dog people. Based on you posting about your tragic loss, I'd say you're dog people and you should go find a new buddy.

    Somethin to help with your grieving:

    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....

    I feel your pain. About 2 years ago I lost one special little dog named teddy. He was mostly a mut with collie mix and something else. We got him from a friend when he was 6 months old. The vet said he died of old age. He was 16 years old. To this day I have yet to replace him yet. I just do not have the heart.... :cry:

    Being a dog owner myself, I can only imagine your grief. I get choked up just thinking about losing my little Beagle buddy.
    I am very sorry for your loss.

    Sorry to hear about your loss, in time your grieving will turn to fond memories of your friend.
    Some people don't realize how much they become a part of your family.

    I'm sorry to hear about your buddy. The bond between a man and his dog goes way beyond the pet/owner relationship. I've had a few dogs that I swore could read my mind.
