RE: Reggie
Hi me50,
Is this a story about apnea? I clicked on the link you have posted and tried to find the story amongst tuns of links, but I was unable to find the story, just links and an encouragement to join "Pentrist.".

It isn't about apnea so I posted it in off topic section. When you click on the link above it takes you to the story. I just clicked on it and I didn't see links and the encouragement to join Pentrist. So, I don't know what to say. It is a story about a dog.

RE: Reggie
I clicked on it. It is because it was shared off someone's Pinterest board. It opened up in my Pinterest account. Have seen it circulate through social media. I am an animal lover and most especially labs. So there is a real soft spot. We had two black labs now gone. And someone close to us lost in the way mentioned in the story. That one always gets me!

RE: Reggie
Sorry some of you were sad but I thought it was a great story to know that the dog found a great home! I know that is how it affected me. You just never know how people will react and sometimes the best intentioned things seem to back fire. Oh well. I don't guess we can win them all.

I'm not sad in a bad way me50. I read it everytime it comes across my devices. I like the story too. I have soft spots for these things.

I like it when a story has a happy ending and in this case, the dog had a great life with his first owner and they were both very happy with each other and the fact that the dog has a 2nd happy home is even better.

We have 3 rescue dogs and had a rescue dog before these 3 and a rescue cat as well before the current 3. Out of the 5 rescues we had, 3 of them lost their previous owner and they have a very happy life, are spoiled beyond belief and give us so much unconditional love and make us very happy as well. That is the moral of the story!

I get it, no worries. I've just lost four (furry) kids in the 5yrs (old age) plus my father in-law, and recently my mother in-law - been a rough time lately plus a lot of hospital time for me. We're waiting for 'life' to get better for a while.

If you happen to like a multiple dog house, be sure to spread their ages out further apart - we currently have a 5yr old, a 3yr old, and the baby is just nine months old (all are rescues).

RE: Reggie
I am so sorry for all of your losses.

Ours are 4, 7 and 10. The 4 year old is our child's dog that passed away almost 2 years ago. The 7 year old's previous owner passed away. The 10 year old, her family just decided that they were not dog people. Our first rescue was a beautiful black schnauzer who came to us because of a murder/suicide; he was 7 at the time. We lost him in 1995. Then we rescued a cat that sure was not a typical cat and lost him around 2 1/2 years ago when he was around 19 years old. They all gave us so much happiness and they were happy as well. The love from them was so great. They loved us no matter what we looked like, whether we were stinky from working in the yard, etc. When we would be gone and come home, they were so happy to see us. That is true love!

We had a traumatic death (a violent crime) and 2 years later lost mother-in-law. Before that, lost my brother in 1998, then my grandfather, grandmother, child was in the hospital 2 years and survived and was doing well. Then almost 2 years ago, lost our child and 3 weeks later my other brother. So, I do understand!
