    a beautiful and fitting tribute – let the feelings flow and don’t hold back – when I loose a good friend like that – and there have been a few over the years – I cry like a little girl

    Wow. Thanks you all for the sweet words. She’d been with me for the past 13 years, 24/7. We were never apart. Traveled by car, stayed at only dog friendly hotels and she even came on my honeymoon.

    But her spirit in the strip reminded me what her life was about. She is, in a sense, immortal.

    I’m sorry – from the strip, she was a wonderful dog to have, and to grow up with.

    WOW! When was the last time Dog Eat Doug went to 146 comments? Just goes to show you, Brian, that while most may not comment day-by-day, your strip is read and enjoyed by a great many! We look forward to many more episodes of the eternal puppy shenanigans.

    I’m so sorry Brian. Sophie is up there, playing in the sun, chewing a good bone, wrestling with her pals, rolling in the green grass, napping in the warm sun, and waiting for the day the pack is made whole.

    Thank you for giving her a GREAT life and letting us be part of it.

    I wish someone had given Jesus a dog.As loyal and loving as mine.To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyesAnd adore Him for being divine.

    As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog,Would have followed Him all through the day.While He preached to the crowdsand made the sick wellAnd knelt in the garden to pray.It is sad to remember that Christ went away.To face death alone and apart.With no tender dog following close behind,To comfort its Master’s Heart.And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn,How happy He would have been,As His dog kissed His handand barked it’s delight,For The One who died for all men.

    Well, the Lord has a dog now,I just sent Him mine,The old pal so dear to me.And I smile through my tearson this first day alone,Knowing they’re in eternity.Day after day, the whole day through,Wherever my road inclined,Four feet said, “Wait,I’m coming with you!”And trotted along behind.

    Oh, it is so hard to loose a pet, and way before 13 years go by. I feel your pain, anyone who has ever loved a dog or cat that much knows that pain.Sorry for your loss of your little cutie. Those are so sweet pickers of her and even with little Dougie.

    You’ll see her again. Don’t worry. My best friend died in a car crash. My wife visited a psychic to talk to HER mom and my friend showed up and said that the first thing he was aware of in “the afterlife” was his childhood dog licking him on his hand. I am NOT afraid. Just be confident you will see your furry loved one again, and you will. One Love!

    Aw, I am so sorry. I have so enjoyed your portrayal of the special relationship between a boy and his dog. Or, a dog and her boy. You could just feel it was based on experience. Condolences to you and yours.

    I am so sorry. My puppy is 13 1/2. I have a ramp to help him into the truck to visit my grandkids. The folks at the shelter told us he might make 50 lbs. He topped out at 107. He is my bestest…
