I think that was a very sweet story - how could that offend.

When I read it to my roomie, she reminded me of the story of her dog from the past, Bronson, who after a day or so, dug up his pal, Squirty who had recently been buried. Bronson didn't bring her inside, but he wanted his friend back. Roomie said he just stood there at the unearthed grave - looking sad, like get up and play with me.

Animals have such strong emotional bonds that most humans could only hope to understand someday.

My Homeopath Vet made me realise the death of Duffys' best bud :dog: :rip: Cally & her life long companion :cat: :rip: Mischief most likely contributed to her getting HyperThyroidism (which is often associated w/loss & death).

The bond between buddies is not something to be taken lightly. :)

I know Spoutnik II would have done that to Zorro :rip:? had he been burried in the garden. As it is, we never discovered what happened to Zorro. He went out at midnight and was gone forever at 5 am :candle::cat: Spoutnik searched for days, going out from the house in all directions and back to the house in one-hour trips, obviously covering all the ground that he could. Needless to say, so did we, on foot, bicycle and by car, calling, searching, knocking on doors, calling the local vets etc ... no Zorro :confused: :sad:

I think it's a sweet story jiorji!

awww :cry: all your stories are all so sad. Kinda makes me glad that my kitties aren't that close. I'd hate to see them suffer such loss, especially since I'm not entirely sure animals understand "death". I think they see things differently, but how do they know their friend died and is to never come back??


:yell::yell::cry:

Before I buried my Peppi in the backyard,I left him for a bit in the carrier on the deck and it was really sweet to see Rocky sniff and lay down beside the carrier,as if waiting for Peppi to wake up,Chico was just a baby then.
Animals have no concept of death and dying,but I think they know if life has left a friend,no heartbeat,no breathing.
Rocky said his good-byes by laying beside Peppi.

Jiorji,that story was in no way offensive,more like a wonderful love-story:lovestruck:although finding my dead cat with the pup,whould have bothered me,but also amazed me.

Animals must "understand" death and dying in some way even though they don't have the same reasoning as humans. My folks bred Saint Bernards when I was really young, and they always tell a story about when they had to put Bradley (male) down. He had been sick for a while with a tumour, and they had gone back and forth out of town for surgeries and treatments but to no avail. When the returned from the vet for the last time without Bradley, they said that Josette (his mate) looked up hopefully and when she didn't see Bradley she "knew" he wasn't coming home and just laid and put her head down.
:rip: Bradley and Josette

This is a sweet story. I think it reinstates how intelligant animals are. And that they love wholeheartly. The bond that those two shared. The story makes you want to cry.

What a beautiful and touching story. I have two cats. When my tortie Natasha was sick and at a vet hospital for a few days, her sister Kiara looked everywhere for her. They share everything together, they are unseparable.
