    Very sorry to hear about Bill losing his friend DR. It's the sort of unforseeable accident that can occasionally happen. The poor man is probably tearing himself apart with "if onlys" at the moment.

    "I Loved You Best" is certainly a great poem when someone loses a special friend. Don't forget to give credit to the author Jim Willis.

    RIP little dog. How sad.

    I have an aversion to any bones a dog can actually get into its mouth. Once upon a time I was a veterinary noise and watched a Silky die on the table as myself and the Vet struggled to dislodge a bone caught at the back of his mouth. It was an horrific experience. The owners were beside themselves.

    I relented on this when the raw feeding craze began. I started to feed my Pugs chicken wings. Pugs being Pugs though insist on swallowing them whole. After many times of pulling the wing from their throats I decided to ban them again. My Pugs are only given large shank bones that they have no hope of ever getting in their mouths to actually eat. This keeps their teeth and jaw in good health. They get their calcium and phospherous from minced chicken carcasses.

    Stunning poem AF!

    The dog is now running free over Rainbow Bridge. Bill is not. I hope he gets through this loss of his beloved friend and companion. My heartfelt sympathy for the dog, but my stronger sympathy for the man who is left behind without her.

    That poem is so sad. Two years after losing my beloved baby and I still bawl at the drop of the hat when I read a poem about our best friends.

    Deep condolances for Bill.

    Very sad story. I am still very nervous giving Jenna bones. She is due to have one for breakfast in the morning, it is defrosting in the fridge tonight. I shall be watching nervously til she has finished and probably take it off her when it gets too small.

    Thanks everyone. I'll be seeing Bill next Saturday for our break up so will pass on all your thoughts. He would feel guilty in thinking he didn't do enough....poor man! It is not an experience I'd like to have. I am always around when my lot have bones but it can happen so easily and quickly. I'll be phoning Bill later in the day to see how he's coping.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.
