Loosing a dog

They tell you not to cry.

They tell you that it's just a dog, not a human being.

They tell you that the pain will be over.

They tell you that the animals don't know that they have to die.

They tell you that it's important not to let him suffer.

They tell you that you can have another one.

They tell you it's going to happen to you.

They tell you that there is more pain.

But they don't know how many times you've looked into your dog’s eyes.

They don't know how many times you and your dog have looked into darkness alone.

They don't know how many times your dog was the only one who was by your side.

They don't know how much fear you have at night when you wake up with your grief.

They don't know how many times your dog slept near you.

They don't know how much you've changed since the dog has become a part of your life.

They don't know how many times you hugged him when he was sick.

They don't know how many times you've acted like you didn't see his hair getting whiter.

They don't know how many times you've talked to your dog, the only one who really hears.

They don't know that it was just your dog who knew you were in pain.

They don't know what it feels like to see your old dog trying to get up to say hello.

They don't know that if things went wrong, the only one who didn't go is your dog.

They don't know that your dog trusts you every moment of his life, even in the last.

They don't know how much your dog loved you and how it is enough for him to be happy, because you loved him.

They don't know that crying for a dog is one of the most noble, significant, true, purest and warmest things you can do.

They don't know when the last time you moved him with trouble... making sure it didn’t hurt him.

They don't know what it felt like to pet their face in the last moments of their life.... In Memory of all those who went over the rainbow bridge. You all have a place forever in our hearts 💕 Photo Travis Patenaude. - author Emanuele Spud Grandi

Småen

Småen også kjent som Nord VV-14 Nuch Angel 

En fantastisk tispe som ble beholdt etter Tinka og Quattro, hun og ikke minst foreldrene har gitt oss utrolig mye glede og lært oss å kjenne rasen. 

Ett langt liv uten noe særlig andre vetrinærbesøk enn vaksinering og trekke en tann med bruddskader viser at det har vært en hund med god helse.

Småen fikk slippe når vi så at hun ikke lengre klarte å henge med flokken og ble usikker på ting rundt henne da hørsel og syn ble svekket en del det siste året. Det er alltid tøft å ta ett slikt valg men vi ønsker ikke at dyrene våres skal lide unødvendig 

Småen ble 15år og fik slippe 18/5-18

Tinka

Tinka eller Tinka La-Zita i papirene var vår først japaner valp.

Hun ble kjøpt fra en oppdretter på Voss som egentlig hadde tenkt å beholde henne selv. Tinka ble stilt en del men var også som Quattro en hund som gjorde det best som veteran på utstilliner. 

Tinka har vi beholdt Angel"Småen" etter. Tinka har hatt sine kull opp igjennom, denne gode damen fra Voss. Hun var en perfekt mor til sine avkom og bestemor for barnabarn. En tålmodig sjel som fint kunne finne på å stjele valpene til datteren og få melk til dem.

Hun har vært en god hund å ha i hus. Hun kunne fint oppdra de andre sine valper også ikke bare sine egne søte små. 

Tinka måtte vi ta den tunge veien med i mai-15 så det er ikke lenge siden. Tinka ble 15år gammel 

Quattro

Quattro eller La-Min-So's Quattro i papirene var vår første japaner.

Han kom i hus som en 7år gammle hund som trengte nytt hjem. Han ble med oss på en del utstillinger og jo eldre han ble jo bedre gjorde han det på utstiliger merkelig nok.

Han var en hærlig hannhund med hærlig gemytt. Han rakk i bli far til 2 kull før han døde 13.5 år gammel. Fra hans andre kull beholdt vil Angel"Småen"
