My tear eyed grandfather once told me,

"He was born a dog,He has died a Man"

I am positive that applies here as well,Kind Regards, Terence.

This is a special grove for remembering pets at the Land of Medicine Buddha in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Next time I'm up there I will stop and give a prayer for Cush.

Sorry, Dean. Take solace in that Cush feels no pain now and runs with Skadi and the others in a peaceful place. My old Lucy is probably there too with my other beagles like Rocky and Maverick.

Life is a series of dogs. Losing one is never easy, ever! But I always seem to get more. I think we all do. But it hurts real bad every time the depart.

I know how you feel, take care of the family too. God blesses Cush now.

I'm so sorry, Dean.

There's no purer love or grief than that with one's dog.

This sh#t just rips my heart out.

CUSH may be gone physically but his infinite spirit will remain in your souls for the rest of your days here on earth.

Only a Dog can do that to us. That is why the Creator put them here on earth.

CUSH definitely lived a good life while he was here physically, thanks to you and your family and most certainly fulfilled this old wise epitaph of a well lived life:

Remember, it is not what you take with you to your grave that counts. It is what you leave behind for others that marks your life well lived.

Thanks for all the kind words here.

I am still struggling mightily with the loss of Cush, but when I get it together a bit, I will post a tribute to him.
