A Dog's Purpose? (from a 6-year-old). 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.'' Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. 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. Take naps. 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. Be loyal. 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.
There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING... Have a great life.
We had to say Goodbye to Aramis Dec, 11. 2016. He was 15+ Years old! Aramis was a Great Dog! He wasn't just a great Stud Dog, but he was a great Show dog! But the best of all he was my friend! He was so sweet and kind to all dogs as well to people! He was a king of his pack family and his pack loved him too. But when he was mad at someone he had a look that told them to stop what they was doing! I remember Z'Air was doing something he was not supposed to do and Aramis just looked at him never making a sound, Z'Air just dropped to the ground! He was never mean but he was the King!! Aramis loved to show, He always gave it his all!!! Many people knew him and loved him at the show Rings! He has many puppies on the earth, All sweet and loving like Aramis! His puppies act just like him!!
Aramis You will be greatly missed, I know you knew how much I loved you because I knew you loved us too. Go see your old pack on the Rainbow Bridge! Have fun and play!!!!
Our dearest Kimberly and Dale,
I was going to send you Merry Christmas greetings and saw the saddest news about our Daddy on your website. Our deepest condolences on the loss of the most gorgeous, noble and dignified Tervuren boy I ever saw. He was such a special guy. He was not a dog, he was "His Magesty", magnificient and magnanimous. I can't hold my tears thinking about Aramis...
I appologize for long silence. In September my grandmother passed away and it was the most painful loss for me. She was more than a mother for me. She was my real soul mate. I don't know, how I would survive if I would not have my most precious baby Takara next to me. I don't know how to express all my gratitude for my so special girl. She is a part of my heart, so smart, so intelligent, so beautiful and loving. It is simply almost impossible to be that amazing person when you are just 16 months old puppy. But she is!!!
My dear Kimberly and Dale, please, don't think that i might forget you. It will never happen, never. I feel so sorry for Aramis. Crying with you and praying for you.
With love and gratitude, always Tamara
I just read your website post announcing Aramis' passing in December. You wrote so wonderfully about him.
I want you to know that Aramis made a deep impression on me, and it was a wonderment to see him when we did. Will share with you and tell you my innermost thoughts about him, just as we were to embark on our ownership of our first Belgian Tervuren. As Aramis approached us, yes, I could see that wonderful personality he had--towards you, towards us as strangers in his midst, and towards the remaining three or four pups in the "S" litter. Bitzy was to be our seventh dog, preceded by six German Shepherds, and two more GSD's that our son and daughter own.... All eight have been wonderful. Our Bitzy was "new" of course, but I suspected she'd have a great future (Heh, she has too.).
But, my thought then: I knew that if Bitzy lived to be as old as Aramis, become as wonderful as she could be, then that would make her "even" with, but never surpassing, your wonderful dog. I knew I was seeing a miracle in that dog you had--as good as any dog anywhere could ever be.
Gael Vision Sen Vysociny CGC (June 24, 2005 - Oct. 25, 2013)
Gael, We will always love you and never forget you! You always ware so happy and playful! You are the most Beautiful Silver Belgian I have ever seen in my life! Go Play with Tessa, you two will have a great time in Heaven! Love Dale & Kimberly & All the Fuzzy Kids
Dearest Kimberly and Dale, It is with our deepest condolences to you, on your loss of your most precious Gael., Annabel.s Sire. It was always so fun to see her reaction to him when he would join the Halloween Party. She was mesmerized by him, she knew he was her daddy and loved him very much. We will miss seeing him at the puppy parties, but he will be in our lives forever through miss Annabel. We will be thinking and praying for you during this tough time. Until we see him again at the rainbow bridge. Run free Gael!!! Mike Lisa And Annabel.
Dearest Kim, Dale and ALL the fuzzy kids,, Of all the beautiful Belgians in your home, Gael took to me like a kindred spirit. From the first day I met Gael the “tug of war” was on. When I would visit he would wait only a few minute for me to say hello to his brothers and sisters and that was it. Whether the rope was dry or WET….. we played, back and forth, round and round, made no difference as long as he was on oneend and I was on the other.
I remember wishing I has a grand Belgian like Gael, he was literally a gentle giant…you will greatly missed but, what a grand legacy you leave behind… maybe one day we will meet again, keep the rope close by my 4 legged friend, I hope to see you in my dreams…
All out love, Donna, Lukkas and Leia…
Oh Kimberly, I am so sorry. Gael was such an amazing dog. Gared Vision Roberson (Rogan) will keep going in his footsteps. He is very playful, just like his Dad. Please know that we are thinking of you and your fuzzy kids and sending you love and support.
Love, Sharon and Rogan
Oh Kimberly, I am so, so very sorry. I know your heart is absolutely broken and I cannot express my sorrow for you. I am so glad that I got to come to your party and see him recentlly - he was a blessing and a true member of your family.
Take care of yourself. Michele
Kimberley, I am devastated. My heart goes out to you!!

Dearest Gael You have moved on to a greater place. But you are leaving behind so many friends and family. I have ask the Lord to please give you your wings a little early so that you can wrap them around Kimberly & Dale so they can feel your warmth to help ease them through this loss. You have been such a joy to have known. We will all miss you so very much. You take care of yourself and keep a watchful eye for all of those who are still here. We love you Gael. You will be missed!

So sorry to hear about Gael, losing a pet and good friend is so hard. My prayers are with you and husband.

Hello Kimberly and Dale, You've been in my thoughts lately with the news of Gael's passing. Life can be SO bittersweet at times. I hope you fill your days with the joyful memories Gael brought to you over the years and embrace the coming of the new little fuzzy Q kids. I keep checking your sight for photos of their arrival.
After I read the news about Gael I gave Phoebe a big loving hug and she returned the gesture as always. There's nothing that can replace the friendship and special moments that ultimately lead to the vacancy our hearts feel once a loving friend moves on to that great place in the sky.
Dear Gael give a big woof to our old friends, Summer, Jude, Loch, Ladd, Lebshin, Toby, Sally and Mae, they're up there too, watching over our family and probably rolling in something stinky! :)

Earlier this week, our beloved, beautiful Bentley (Indigo) went to Heaven.
He brought such joy into our lives and he was the best dog either of us have ever known. He had such an amazing personality he totally loved all of us and he was so intelligent and always wanting to please. He didn't have a mean bone in his body even when other dogs were aggressive or annoying, he always responded kindly and gently. He even loved our cat and the two of them would sit together every morning on the porch watching the butterflies in the garden. He loved life in every way - loved the beach, the snow and our long daily walks and he loved to play. The most unique thing about him was his sense of humor, I have never known any animal with a sense of humor, before. He would actually tease us and then look at us with laughing eyes. Here's a picture of when he climbed into our bed and got under the covers. And, he was so beautiful we never went anywhere without everyone commenting on how gorgeous he was. I don't know why such am amazing, beautiful, creature was taken away so early in his young life but we are totally heartbroken. But I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for, the wonderful time we had with him, which totally enriched our lives. We will never, ever forget him. Sorrowfull Daryl
Please give my warmest and heartfelt thoughts to Indigo's family. I know exactly their pain with the instant and unexpected loss almost a nine months ago of my boy Bruno. It's absolutely devastating that such a beautiful animal is lost whether it be by accident or just circumstance. The pain and grief for the first few weeks is almost unbearable and the loss of companionship is missed hourly. We ask God, "Why"? Why would you take such a beautiful animal away from us in their absolute beginning of prime? The only thing that I could tell myself was that "God need another perfect specimen of a Belgian in heaven". We get so attached to these dogs because of their beauty and their inherent intelligence. They win our hearts with one little cute gesture at a time, one little sweet action or there stare at us with those marvelous brown eyes. They steal your heart, then they intertwine their hearts and souls with ours. It's a magical thing that these dogs transform upon us and then having to pay such a high price by laying them on the altar of sacrifice is unbearable. Bruno will always be in my heart as I'm sure their beloved Indigo will be in his families' hearts. The promise that God makes us is that if we follow him, we'll all meet in heaven again someday. That's what keeps me going and comforts my feelings when times are the toughest. God bless all of our babies, especially Bruno and Indigo who are probably playing tug-o-war in heaven right now.

I am so sorry to hear that Bentley (Indigo) is no longer by your side. As I was out walking his brother, Idaho Hearts Rayce, on Sunday afternoon he looked up into the sky as if he was looking up into Heaven. Rayce has a super tracking noise and when he’s not running full blast, he has his noise to the ground . . . so looking up is something out of the norm for him. He looked puzzled like someone was calling him, but he couldn’t tell quite where the sound was coming from. Could it have been Bentley calling outto him? Thank you for the nice note telling us more about Indigo’s sweet spirit. Rayce is so much like him – full of joy, full of love, and very beautiful. Our hearts go out to you and your family. As for Indigo, I am sure he is in Heaven. For the time he was with you, he brought Heaven to Earth.
