No, no Andy. Troy likes to get there fast so that he can pee.

Bess and I had to say goodbye to our old buddy Tivo tonight. Not the absolute best boating dog in the world, but he was a damn good friend for eight amazing years! Goodbye little buddy.

Oh, I'm so sorry for the loss of your good boy, Tivo. That 2nd pic where his face and muzzle have a touch of grey just melts my heart. I've always thought that people who truly grieve the loss of animals have hearts that make the world a better place. There's no doubt that Tivo loved you two just as much in return.

Sorry for the loss. Reading your post brought a tear to my eye thinking of some the good 'friends' in my life now gone. Find another to fill the void.

Tom and Bess, truly sorry to here of Tivo's passing. A good dog works his way into our hearts, and leaves a huge hole when he is gone.

Aww man.
I got a lump in my throat.
It takes so long to get over something like that.
Hang in there it does get better.

Sorry for your loss. It is so hard to let them go. We lost our dog-kid the Saturday before last, and we are both still moping about. Our boy was a superb sailor; we had him out in some very rough weather. He hated lightning and thunder, but never got seasick in rough seas.

Does anyone have a new friend?
We got one about a month after our two little friends passed.

You know we got the new dog before the second one passed.
I swear to god the old one passed things on to the new one. She does some of the same things in the same way.

When our old little friend got sick and had trouble standing. I swear the other one would stand next to her and let her lean on him. More than once.
He also gave up his spot next to me in my chair so she could sit there.

Sometimes I think they are more than we suspect.

I agree, they are more than we'll ever know. There will be more dogkids in our future...but not yet.

Thanks Everyone for the kind words. Tivo was really special...a very gentle soul. He really wasn't the best "boating" dog, more a dock-queen dog. He hated head seas and wakes the most! (don't we all?) But He was happy as long as we were all together..it didn't matter to him what we were doing, as long as we were together.

We initially thought "no more dogs" after losing Rex. That lasted about two hours. The love, loyalty and companionship of a dog is among the wonderful things life has to offer. I still grieve for all the canine friends I've had since childhood, but I would not like to have missed the experiences.
Somewhere out there right now is a dog who needs you as much as you will come to need him or her. Good luck in dealing with the loss of your pet. I know how you feel right now.

Thanks CC. I will never say no more dogs....not ever. I think we just need some time. The last time I lasted about 3 months.

GonzoF1,Vale Tivo, our sincere condolences. There is something beautiful about old dogs ("and children,and watermelon wine",as the song says). I`m sure your memories will be good ones, once the raw hurt of loss subsides.
