    You are so wrong. I'm not a religious person at all. I care a sh*t about religions. Can't you understand you are killing your beloved?

    May be it's you who don't want to suffer.

    Ordo, who wants to suffer? If you are a materialist at all I can not fathom how you can defer to a quantity over quality of life position. I would be happy to continue with you if we're to:

    a) answer some of the questions asked of you
    b) take it to PM

    @ordo  Crazy is what crazy says and I do not argue with crazy. I feel that you are more trying to troll this thread rather than place a legit and valid argument. Although one's thoughts and feelings are always valid, trying to legitimize your stance by making base statements with no real fact nor reasoning behind it just shows how callus and cruel one can be towards others pain of losing great and wonderful companions.

    You sir (clap, clap) are out!

    @AllanMcPherson  Don't let a troll pull you in and waste your precious time.

    oh, I and do understand that I have killed, to use your words, my pets. Instead of having them languish in a suffering that they could not comprehend. Everybody who has made that choice understands that as well. And they likely are torn up for it. Do you not understand that?

    I just wanted to thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.

    I hope this thread circles back to it's origin.

    This is our new friend from a local pound.



    He's 4 yrs. old and maybe Henry or Norman for a name(on golden pond/img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif)

    I would call him Lucky. He is lucky that there are people such as yourself that can look beyond the cute puppies and see the more experienced dog for what he has to offer. And you are lucky that you get a new friend. How great is that!

    I use to be a volunteer at our local animal shelter. I would walk the dogs and people them. When I opened my restaurant I had to resign due to time constraints. My volunteer dog walking turned into three new best friends for me, probably just as well that I had to resign or God knows how many new best friends I would have by now!

    How could anybody not love a dog?

    Well I gotta post a pic of our girl Holly. Technically not a Hound. But pretty dang close. I give to you, Holly the Catahoula.

    @HappyHound

     I honestly had never been around a Catahoula until a couple of years ago. They are becoming very popular in South Texas. Just about everyone I know in Texas has a ranch somewhere.

    I have some buddies that travel South a couple of times a year to go skunk pig hunting. The Catahoulas are very good dogs to hunt these. They are able to hold the pig trapped in a position so that one can use a bow and arrow or small caliper gun. I think the best thing about them is they seem to be a breed who can come off the dust and be a wonderful house dog, with children and strangers (although a bit protective).

    Holly looks just like one of the hounds I fell in love with. So friendly and polite when not hunting. As we start a pit burn at dusk she will run around and has the craziest eyes.

    Hollys a beauty.

    PS not a big hunter. Especially when hunters with dogs keep them caged up.
