Oh God... this brought back a lot of memories that I'd successfully forgotten.

A bit of drift

Nothing to do with boating - sorry for the drift, but when we lost our dear Springer Spaniel several years ago I was Googling "where do you bury a dog"(we live in town and this was a real concern) and found this editorial - it brought solace then, and I have shared it with several friends since. If you have lost a dog or have a friend that has lost one, I hope this helps you also:
Where Shall I Bury My Dog

There is one place to bury a dog. If you bury him in this spot he will come to you when you call – come to you over the grim dim frontiers of death and down the well remembered path to your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs they shall not growl at him nor resent his coming for he belongs there.
People may scoff at you who see no slightest blade of grass bent by his foot fall,who hear no whimper, people who never really had a dog. Smile at them for you know something that is hidden from them and which is well worth knowing.
The one place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.


Answer to the question “Where Shall I Bury My Dog” Editorial, Ontario Newspaper circa 1900

Does it make you feel like doing push ups?

LOL

How about this...

But men and officers must obey no matter at what cost to their feelings for obedience to orders instant and unhesitating is not only the lifeblood of the army but the security of the state.
