Abner died today.

He was 11. I brought him home for my wife when he was 8 weeks as an early Christmas present. She wanted a female to name Abigail, but I couldn't find one (at least for a reasonable price) so I bought him and named him Abner. He was the cockiest little SOB I ever saw. He was 8 pounds, but thought he was 80. His bed was by my nightstand and now it's gone.

Im sorry.


But another dog needs a good man. Please rescue a dog and let this dog love you.

dogs make up for their short lifespan in their intensity of love for their 2 legged family


people whom say critters don't have emotion have never had a GSD

every GSD i had COULD fuck me up but followed me aground like I was a God and in many cases they were a lot smarter than I



something to be said for a being that IS OVERJOYED beyond reason with just you giving it some attention

I can't argue with Fluffy.

RIP lil Abner.

I hope your sorrow eases soon. (A dog in need might be just the tonic in due time)

Sorry for your loss OP.

After decades of owning big boys I learned to appreciate the little guys (They
never seem to realize that they ARE little).

Nice little mutt.
Remember the good times and make room for a new buddy when the time comes.

I thought he was going to live forever just to give me hell! Life span on Shih Tzu's is 10-16 years.

Coincidentally, I am picking up this guy tomorrow:



We made arrangements a couple of weeks ago before Abner's health started declining. He belongs to a coworker of my wife. They bought him, Dexter, and his brother at the same time. They decided that two Boxers is one too many and wanted to give him up. Abner was supposed to show him the ropes around our home and be his companion. I feel a guilty now.
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 8:37:58 PM EST
So sorry.

Man that sucks. Sorry about your buddy.

I am sorry for your loss. I hope that you, your family, and your new dog have a great future and happy days.

No need for feeling bad, but I get it. Abner would have had that boxer in line for sure.

Boxers are fiercely loyal and have human-level intelligence - he will become a loved part of your family. I witnessed, circa 1966 or so, our boxer, "Tinker", run and tackle my baby sister and stand over her to prevent her from running out in front of a car coming down the road until my dad got there and picked her up.
