    Default If You Had to Pick

    What was the single most special moment you shared with you dog/s?

    Mine is when I was a kid I broke my arm and while I was crying wiating for someone to get me, Terry, Max (the dog we used to have) and Darcy (Aunties) all sat in my lap and lick my tears away.

    What about you? The most special or tender moment? If you had to pick one..No cheating and picking more

    When Roly was laying on the vet table, mucles twitching, paralyzed, and being told he most likely wont survive the night. It made me realise a lot of things.

    The amount of effort Lady puts in to please me. Any one of these moments are so special. Im so lucky to have her.

    No contest - the most difficult moment in my life.

    After caring for my terminally ill mother at home for 8 months, she finally had to go to a hospice, she was only there for a week when she passed away. My beautiful little silky cross girl Ammy (who will be 17 next month) was with me through it all, keeping me sane, and she was allowed to come to the hospice to visit (usually the staff would take her to visit the other patients). When the phone call came that morning, she came with me to say our final goodbyes. I place Ammy on the bed, and she gently walked up to Mum and gave her a little "kiss" on the cheek. THAT is my moment.

    Miss you Mum, will be 8 years on Thursday.

    My single most special moment would have to be the last moment before they leave this world and me.

    That is the strongest emotion of all, and the memory that stays forever.

    Mine would have been roughly a year ago. My bf of 4 years walked out on me and the kids. I was so low, he had hurt me in every way possible.
    I was really upset one particular day, I felt so alone, used, tired and just like no one in the entire world cared about me.
    Almost at that exact moment Kimba kinda woke from her sleep next to me and put her head on my lap and gazed up at me. I then knew that no matter what happened I'd always have a friend that thinks the world of me

    Sam - When he broke his leg. We had rushed him to the vet and the little trooper hadnt made a sound and we had gotten him into the table and while the vet was examining him I held his head in my arms and stroked his face and he just looked at me the whole time, not flinching once (and by god it must have been painful). All he wanted was me to nurse him. It was so sad and so beautiful. Even Dh was amazed.

    Sassy - When she was a little puppy is some of my best memories. I got her far too early (she was 5 weeks old from a BYB before I knew what one was ) and she would spend all day wimpering becuase she was scared I think, anyways I used to wrap her up in a warm blanket and bring her inside and she would fall alseep on my lap. I think she just wanted the contact with someone. Now she tries to sit on my lap and I keep trying to explain thats she a little big now.

    When Cappy died. As he went in to have his scan, he looked at me and I knew. All was forgiven, everything was love and he was going to go - it was his time.
