Thanks to all of you and some more information

First I want to start by saying THANK YOU to all of you who commented with wonderful sympathy to the recent and sudden passing of our baby puppy Clyde. It has been a heart break for us and we are dealing accordingly. I'm not one to cry and that seems to be all I have been doing lately. Again THANKS to all of you! I appreciate it!

Secondly, we (the wife and I) have learned that the world works in mysterious ways. After the passing of our dog early yesterday morning something strange happened to us. As we were sitting there after they took Clyde away after he passed a vet tech passes me walking a dog. A very cute dog. Looked to be in perfect health. As they were passing the dog stops... Turns around and lays his head in my lap. And just stays there. No amount of pulling on the vet techs part could get this dog to move. So I stroked his head and gave him a kiss. (as I am crying my eyes out) I looked at the wife kinda bewildered. It was like the dog knew my pain. The wife and I just kinda look at the dog then eachother and then the wife turns to the vet tech and the vet dr. and asks what is wrong with him. Apparently nothing is wrong with the dog. He is healthy and up to date on shots. Someone just left him at this place 2 weeks ago. And with no luck on finding him a new home after two weeks he was next in line after our Clyde to be put down. I was shocked! The wife turns to the doctor and asks how much! I was a little shocked, but didn't say anything becuz all the while I hadn't realized I was still petting this amazing beautiful dog! Needless to say and to make an already winded post short... We had to put one dog down but was able to save one as well. His name is Max and he is a pure breed Boxer. While I was unsure after such a tragic event I too couldn't fathom putting him to sleep just becuz they couldn't find him a home. So I have wondered if it wasn't the universe putting us there at the right moment in time to save this prescious bundle of joy.

The wife had her surgery as well today. It went fine. She is passed out right now on pain meds and I hope she stays that way til morning. I am spent! Ready to pass out writing to you all now! lol So for your sake of boredom and my sake of passing out I will sign off now and update you all sometime tomorrow. I know I will not have 2 1/2 hours to go thru blog roll and read all of your wonderful blogs tomorrow but maybe tomorrow night! Fair trade? lol
Signing off,
Sabrae Carter

Oh, I missed your Clyde post. I am oh so very sorry for your loss! How heartbreaking! I am so sorry you lost Clyde, but I am happy you were able to save a sweet and very special dog!

Wow, I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason...this is one of those times...all I can say is WOW.

I had something last year that I had to do, and at the time I didn't know why, but I just knew I had to do it. Now as the New Year starts I know why it happened. Things do happen for a reason. Sadly people/animls/things come and go from our lives.

As my mother always says "As one door closes, another one opens."

I think animals *can* feel our pain and I'm glad you were able to save sweet Max. I hope Amy makes quick progress on the recovery front. I'm sending good vibes your way!

Best wishes and a get well soon for the wife. What better way to honor Clyde's memory than saving a life.

Everything happens for a reason- great to see the good in it. Hope things get better!

Well, when one door closes another door opens! I'm happy you all came home with another dog. And, you know HE is happy he came home with you too! LOL!

I'm glad Amy is doing well after surgery.

That is beautiful. That dog totally CHOSE you! Animals have such amazing intuition. I'm so glad that he found you and your wife to be his new family.

And best wishes to the wife for a speedy recovery!

I'm so so sorry and yet what an amazing story. I want a dog again so much and yet I keep reminding myself that 1) I will have no help and 2) I'm likely to be gone a month in the summer and not able to take the dog with.

Your story is so amazing. I feel like I can't stop saying that. I'm so so so so so so happy for you guys.

Clyde is a true angel up there looking out for you both.

I missed your Clyde post.

I'm so very sorry that you lost him. *HUGS* to both you and your wife.

The part about the other dog is totally incredible. I'm so glad that you were able to give him a home.

Best wishes for a quick recovery from the surgery..

Oh my gosh, that's totally cool that he put his head in your lap. He connected with you!!! I think he felt your pain and wanted to help. I love that so much.

I hope your wife recovers quickly and I also hope that she lets you post pics of
