Just went thru the worst part of being a pet owner

Recommended Posts

Really sorry to hear that man. Our work cat (my cat) was run over by a car a few weeks ago. That was a really shitty time to need a shovel. If you are near me ill buy you a beer [emoji106]

I'm sorry for your loss. I've been there several times myself and it never gets any easier. For me personally I've found the best way to heal the heartache of a loss is to get another dog to put all my attention into. Not as a replacement but a good distraction.

Thanks all, its funny how you can tell a true pet owner from someone else , They get it,   Lizzy was the last of out 9 original pugs who which were all rescues , she was 16 and the one before that was 18  , but as you say even tho it is the worst part  I cant not see us never having a dog in our life .

You Did Me a Kindness 

When my legs grew too weak to carry me,

And my tired eyes could no longer see,

When it pained me to struggle for each new breath,

When my heart beat weaker, and I drew closer to death,

You did me the kindness of letting me go.

You didn't make me hang on when I was suffering so.

I promise I don't think that you loved me any less,

And I love you all the more for your selflessness.

You freed my spirit from its body so wracked with pain,

And let me run the fields of Heaven, where I'm sure we'll meet again.

Sorry to hear that FishNHard. I have been there too many times myself. My wife always said "no more dogs!"  We would wait a couple months then get another dog and start the

whole cycle over again!


You should start looking for another dog.

I'm truly sorry for your loss. We lost both of our dogs within a month of each other last year. It was traumatic and even now still hurts. But that pain does fade... slightly...over time. The good memories don't. And when it's time, you'll know when, you'll be ready to fill the void with another excited bundle of pooping wtf.

When we lost our family dog of 18 years my mom claimed never again will a furry animal cross foot in to the house hold. Fast forward 2 years and we now have 2 mangy mutts fighting for all of the attention in the house. It never gets easier but enjoy those furry lovable bastards while you can

I know how hard such a loss can be first hand and wish you and the family the best.


The Rainbow Bridge

inspired by a Norse legend

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

    • Can't go wrong with a Sig. At least I hope not as I just got one too. Now if we could only shoot them...... Congratulation!
    • A quick update, I picked up my gun yesterday from Jack at JT Custom Guns & Collectibles (https://www.jtcustomguns.com/).  The experience could not have been any better.  He was an hour and a half drive for me, which is far, but I would do it again in a heartbeat, and will probably have to when my wife's permits arrive.  I had never purchased a gun before and had only dealt with Jack over the phone and over the internet, so I was really nervous heading there initially, but his reputation on here and reviews online were exceptional.  Even so, it isn't every day you head over to a person's house to buy a gun....  As soon as I met Jack, my mind was at ease.  He was extremely friendly in person, very knowledgeable and professional.  Knowing that I was a first time gun buyer, he really went out of his way to make me feel at ease with the process and to educate me on my gun and guns in general.  He showed me how to take down the gun, how I would clean it, oil it and put it together.  We reviewed some issues I could experience when I'm at the range and how to troubleshoot it, reminding me several times that if I really get stuck to just give him a call or facetime him.  Knowing I had kids in the house, he provided me some literature regarding gun safety and security/education.  He then made a few suggestions on guns my wife could check out to ease her into the sport.  I don't really have a first hand point of reference, but talking to family members and friends, they never experienced the kind of patience and thorough 1-on-1 interaction with any gun dealers they've bought from.   Overall, if you have a good idea about what you want, I would highly recommend giving Jack a call.  His prices are good, he loves the sport and you can truly tell his priority is to make sure your gun buying experience is a good one. Here she is, I named her Stella.
    • should have built a 14.5 inch other    Worse case you pin a muzzle break and stock if things change.. but for now enjoy the fact it's an other.. 
    • There is nothing official from the ATF that states a brace must meet a 13.5" lop, so you don't have to follow that.  The brace is considered a removable accessory and has no bearing on the classification of the firearm.  Since its a brace, there is no LOP. Of all the ATF letters, not a single one measured lop.  
    • Ive used Mark Hartshorne from Pinnacle High Performance for revolver work and he has done a great job. He is in Quakerstown, PA. I have two revolvers in his shop now waiting for his bench.  https://pinnaclehighperformance.com
