Mot -

So good to see you back after a long absence. My regrets regarding Laser. It is always hard to loose a good friend.

Knowing you his casket will be a work of art fit for a King.

Best Regards,
David

Good to see you Tom, only wish there were better news. There’s nothing like an old friend and having lost a couple like Laser I can only express my regrets. I’m sure whatever you make will be worthy of such a companion and I’ll be looking forward to your tribute.

We lost our dog about 4 years ago and it was and it’s still is tough.
I think I know what you must be going through and I want to extend my sympathy’s to you and you family.
If you can provide for a new dog during holidays and the like I would suggest you focus on that once you have given your pal all the comfort you can.

Regards

Tom, I am sorry for the loss of Laser. This is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions that you will ever have to make but despite the pain of losing him you are doing what is best for him. We lost our chocolate lab exactly 2 years ago this month. It is hard, initially to lose them, but I would not trade the lifetime of memories and love that they leave behind to avoid the pain of making this decision.

Great idea on the box. I have planned something similar but simply have not gotten around to it yet. I will be looking forward to seeing a post on yours as an inspiration.

Thanks folks. It’s a somber day. I hope I can come up with something decent, but in looking at the amazing boxes on LJ, I think I’ll find a good match for sure!

Cheers!

Tom, I am sorry about Laser. My 7 year old golden retriever has cancer and I’m not looking forward to the day that is coming. We have to cherish every moment of every day with our frends.

I can certainly feel your pain….we all care deeply for our companions….mine follows me everywhere I go…and she loves to lay on the spot I fixed up for her in the shop and watch me work….you can’t measure the love and friendship you get from a pet….and the void you have when they are gone.

My deepest sympathy for your loss…

Hey old buddy. So darn sorry about Laser. I’ve got a Black Lab and it was my Wife’s dog, but with her working and me being home with Tar he’s gotten so he sleeps with me and just knows when I don’t feel well and will come up and lay his head on my knee. Anyone that says animals are dumb just are dumb themselves. You know Tom as good as you are on the Lathe I’m surprised you’re not making him a nice box on that. With some nice spalted maple or birdseye. As long as he’s being cremated you could even make a lid with a seal. Just a suggestion bud. Sorry again. Stay in touch, we miss you around here, hell, I miss you around here. Mike ps, this is my new grandson Logan. Cool huh?

Hey Tom nice to see you back on LJs but sorry for your loss. I just lost a 16 year old lap dog couple months ago and I never dreamed it would be such a big hole in my life. My heart goes out to you.

Hi Tom;

While it’s always good to hear from you, in this instance, I would prefer that Laser was fine, and there was no need to write.

I lost one of my dogs a while back, and all the macho stuff went right out the window.

Well, one way of getting over the loss of a friend, is to get a new one. They seem to have a way of making the loss easier.

Thanks guys. I thought about a new dog. I’ll wait a month or so to see how the family does. I loved that old pooch, but sitting around telling stories and laughing with my dad, this dog was really a pain in the neck. LOL…not really, but anyone who has a big dog knows what I mean. We’ll see. From the bad comes the good however, as I’m back in the shop.

Cheers!

Tom
Good to see you back on here…
I always find myself becoming wrapped up in other peoples animals. I guess I just love animals allot especially dogs. My whole life I have always disobeyed my mother and would pet strange dogs…still do. I love all my friends and family’s animals as if they were my own. It never fails to break my heart when I hear of someones dog passing. I know how much I love my dog, so I can feel your pain. I hosted a blog on here about a year ago asking people to post pictures of their pets..I remember you posted that exact picture. Dogs are wonderful, amazing, loyal friends that just don’t live long enough. You love them and spoil them like your children, and when they pass it hurts just as much. All I can say is just try and remember all they joy and happiness he brought everyones lives he touched…and slobbered on! When my golden dreams, she yips happily, and her paws move as if she is running through a beautiful field on a sunny day..I like to think if there is a dog heaven thats what it would be like….and Laser is running through that field right now.
