Born alone, Live alone, And die alone..


« on: April 04, 2007, 09:14:28 PM »

   That was his name on his papers..   My furbrother Mauser.  Tommorrow he will be gone six years.  He is the one that taught me
that dogs were MORE than possessions.  He showed me that they are as individual as people. Lymphomic Cancer .   Two weeks
after he was diagnosed was all it took.  His throat swelled up so bad that he could only breathe upright.  if he laid on his side he choked.

  I remember what Dr. James said right after he pushed the plunger down. ''  Now I gotta hang around and make sure his heart quits beating''
That was the closest that I have ever come to hitting someone and NOT doing it..   I really got bent out of shape over that.    Later, after
I had time to think about it I realized that he had to harden himself a long time ago to be able to do this.  I have no complaints about his/their
service to my animals. It is just that he had the bedside manner of a turd..  It probably did not cross his mind that I felt about Mauser like I did.
  My appearance and reputation does not even HINT that I could get attatched to a person, much less an animal.    I FELT his heart quit
beating.
     I used to lay on the floor watching a little tube and tell him '' I sure could use a pillow !!''  and he would come over, lie down and slide under
my head and we would nap together.  I spent a lot of hours listening to that old heart beat.  I know that the doctor had no way of knowing
that.   I know that I did what I had to do . I believe that Mauser knew it also.   I can live with it.   

   Every now and then I can see him in the edge of my vision and of course when I turn my head he is gone.  I know that it is just my
imagination. I am sure of this.    There WILL come a time when he will STILL be there . and that , I am sure , will be my  time to
leave. and it will be in good company.   

      There HAS to be a place like the rainbow bridge.  Or maybe by another name. Or no name at all.    But the whole idea of religion
as I understand it is to be happy forever.  Whether it is heaven  or Nervana  or Happy Hunting Ground  or the seventh level of something
the basic Idea is the same. and if  the presence of and old friend is required to make U happy,  He will be there.  And Shadowhawk
and little Buddy.       ......  And Dwarf..   

   It will last forever. so there is no hurry..      Doc Stan peace

 crying thanks doc, you have me in tears now. 
I am glad you had Mauser in your life to teach you about how special dogs are and what great companions they are.
I believe in Rainbow Bridge and know our dogs who have past are their for us.  I bet your Mauser is with you more than you know.  Love can do strange things in the universe. Heart

It's so hard reading what you've written.  I can feel the love you have for him still. 

It will be 6 yrs in july that my heart dog Ginger also went to rainbow bridge from cancer.  I miss her still.

Hopefully her and Baron and running and playing at Rainbow bridge.  I too believe there has to be something like that.

My dog is in my rearview mirror. Eight years in November. I don't often see his face there, but the back of his head, the cock of an ear, and the tilt, as he studies a passerby.....and then he pivots to make sure I'm still behind him.......

Awww, Doc, I'm just now seeing this. What a great tribute to Mauser, sure brought a tear to my eye and chills down my spine.  Boss's one year anniversary is coming up soon...April 18th, actually.  I know we will see them again, I just know it.

Thanx and I am sure that Boss will be waiting to see U when U get there.  whether now or centuries from now.. In Things like
these I believe that time means very little or nothing.
   Right now, Dwarf is feeding them supper . She feeds them a bowl of wet dog food that we prepare at home for them.   She
feeds them by spoon and they sit there like little crows in line. waiting their turn.   We fix it here for them after the dog food scare.
The reason for spoon feeding them is to make sure everybody gets the proper medicine. She places it on the top and shoves it in at
the right time.  All have medical problems of one sort or another.  The one with the least is daddy's little girl Kaya , the  girl we got
from rescue.  I think that it is because she is a Rottie mix.  She sleeps at the foot of the bed at my feet. nothing moves or makes a sound
that she don't check out.   Chopper's real name on paper is Justin Tyme Parker.. Dwarf started calling him Chopper and it stuck.
  He came from a ''reputable Breeder''  so much for reputable..   he was supposed to be suffering from allergies  to cause his eyes
to look so bad.   Entropian.. both eyes.. upper and lower.   The vet said that it was bad enough that he had to be operated on
or he would go blind or even die from infections.  Well he ain't blind or dead.. When I brought him home from the vet in that e-collar his eyes
looked so bad that Dwarf went all to pieces.  But I could tell that he was in a LOT less pain even as bad as it looked.  Then it was a tumor on his left lower leg that I had taken off.  Benign..  Just like Old Mauser's was .  a couple years before Cancer took him.  I could have taken Chopper back and traded him for a different pup.  But how do U  trade one of your children ?
   Then there is my little birthday present to myself.  Little Mauser.  AKC registered  Mauser Maxim Von Parker.   My 85 pound 300pound
wannabe.  A friend's house burnt down and the only building that did not burn was the shed that housed his litter of PUREBRED rottie
litter.  This little fellow checked out to have a heart murmer.  The vets wanted to euthanize him .  I bought him.  Dwarf and I just
wanted to keep him happy until it was his time to go.   The fellow needed the money and I needed a b-day present.  Dwarf kept
doctoring on him and watching the little monster and working her majic on him.  He has outgrown the murmer it seems . Now
when we take him to the vet it is not heard or so slight as to be about gone.
   I have been diagnosed with a bad heart  a little while back and maybe Dwarf can work her majic on me too.
 
    I like to entertain folks when I can with my stories and lies.   I try to find a little humor in the things and experiences that I run
into in every day life.   Sometimes I am real hard put to find any .  So there is a serious  or even pissed off side to me also. 
  In other words, Human..   We all have the feeling deep down that we are gonna be around forever.  But Old Mauser really changed
my way of felling about animals. Dogs in particular. They live and die just like us. They live with love, fears , hate, I guess and more loyalty
than I can believe.  He was a damn grouch from the word go. He bit the blood out of me several times.  ALL my fault.
I trained him hard .  he tried me hard . I almost shot him several times   He became my fur brother.   sometime Dwarf would tell to ''OUTSIDE''
and he would just ignore her. She was leery enough to leave him alone and wait for me to get home.   But when there was someone
around that he did not know he stayed between her and them. Just as it should be.
   Him and Shadow changed my way of thinking .  Now I don't even hunt anymore.   

    Forgive me for going on like this but a lot of folks have a ''dawg'' and think of them like I did .  A damn animal.   but when U grow up
and get your head out of your butt it has to dawn on U that he or she is the best friend that U can have.

   Doc Stan.. peace huh?

   Yesterday was another year that Mauser has been gone. April 5. That makes 7 years. I still miss the
grouchy old fart . The pain of remembering him ain't as sharp as it was but I am sure it will never get
easy.
  We have been through a lot since his passing.  Old Shadow ,his brother, has gone on to join him and
we got Chopper to take over for Mauser  and we got Little Mauser as a birthday present for me.
  Kaya[daddy's little girl] came by way of rescue. She has found her forever home here after being a
royal pain in the arse.    Finally..     
   AND we do a few transports for rescue from time to time.  Mauser taught me a lot.
I guess an old dog CAN teach an old fart new tricks..       Doc.. wink2

Doc, I miss my heart dog everyday and she passed about 7 or 8 yrs ago.  I cannot even remember anymore.
I know that everyday I still miss her with all my heart. 
I am glad Mauser was in your life to open your heart.  Now your heart is open to so much more and has helped so many more lives.

Eight years today.. Hard to believe that it has been that long already. I still remember and call his name on
his birthday and his ''passing'' day .
   I never had him ''fixed'' so he is probably keeping busy until Dwarf and I show up..  There ain't a day goes by
that he don't come up in one of our conversations.  It is probably unfair but he is what we use as a ''benchmark''
to measure other Rotties by.    Bigger than Mauser was.... Not as smart as Mauser was..Better disposition  than
Mauser's..  and so on.  We Miss the old bastard something awful still.  I, in particular , still mourn his passing.
   BUTT !! These other monsters keep me so agrivated and busy that I can't dwell on it for long at a time.

  U people have a good sunday and a Happy Easter. Remember what it represents..  Doc.. woof

Well, Gunnar was a big dog too, about 125 at his leanest, so the two of them can be buddies.  Gunnar was neutered tho, so Mauser will be boss dog!  angel
