DAMN, THIS SONG brings me memories of my faithful dog, Bisto a Beagle who died out of age-related complications 10 years ago, he began to lose control of his limbs during some strange seizures in which he walked around the house, as in a daze, until I stopped him when he got too bad and laid him to rest…
I used to walk him in a big place I had with trees and grass he loved since he was a pup along with Kitter and Jet, (Our two cats, both gone too.) but at the end of the walk, we had to climb a big staircase upwards, so I carried him in my arms, and this song came to my mind and I sang it for him, he laid his head on my shoulder and together we got home, this lasted for two months until he could not sleep anymore because of the seizures, vet could not do much to help him, so I had to put him to rest for good…
days later, I found myself climbing those stairs again singing this song again and, for a moment, felt his presence in my arms, which were in the same position that I carried him home and for the first time since he died, allowed my feeling of loss to show…thinking to myself, I never felt his weight when I carried him, I was always eager to do it, just for him, for both of us…
Do You have a song that reminds you of a beloved lost pet?

He was a pretty dog. Yes, there are many songs that reminded me of my long pasted pets. Pets are family and we mourn them just like we would the loss of a family member.
Yes Brenda, so do we. Thanks for sharing that information here on my page. 😉
Yes indeed, I have many songs that reminds me of dogs I have lost.
Yes, my friend, I have several too but this one was sooo heartbreaking, it stands out for me as I lost more than my friend, I walked for the last time too around that time. 🙂
well if the goal made me cry you were successful.
I have so many songs that I shared with dogs, singing to them during storms to soothe the fear. i also find myself missing many of the dogs that lived with me over the years.
such a beautiful and loving tribute to a great friend Andre!
Thanks, Doc, I explained to Carol above why it was particularly special. Not to make everyone cry. ?? ?♂️?♂️
i have many stories about dogs, many are sad because the dog is no longer here. Well here in my heart but alive.
it is a beautiful story my friend.
