Why Dogs Live less than Humans & Childs Answer
First, I would like to say, I did not write this. I wanted to share this with you all. Scroll down pass the photos of "Buster D" to read.
When my dog "Buster D" went to doggy heaven a client/friend shared this with me. He lived a great life and he was between 12 to 13 years old.
What trigger this post is that I found his old leash while I was decluttering my home office.
I have searched the internet to find out who did and I am able to find any information. If you guys have any information, please send my way.
It is one of the most beautiful things I have read. I wish I knew who did. I would give them a big bear hug!
When I lost my dog Buster D on May 2nd, 2011, I was a train wreck. I remember I had an appointment the very next day after I put him down to present an offer to my clients and my clients have 3 dogs. All the dogs were around me and I started to cry, like a baby.
A client shared this with me and I have been sending to my friends when I hear the news that their dog passed.
This for you Buster D. Miss you amigo, but will never forgot you.
HERE IS THE STORY
WHY DOGS LIVE LESS THAN HUMAN ? ANSWER OF A 6 YEAR OLD
This story Melt My heart I wanna Share it ! Must read .
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why."
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.
He said,"People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?" The Six-year-old continued,
"Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
