Man, that's heart breaking

HOUSTON —The bond a man and his best friend shared was put on full display in Houston when a loyal dog waited patiently for weeks for his owner to come home after he was killed while working at a convenience store.

Neighbors saw the German shepherd waiting at the front gate to the apartment complex where he lived with his owner, 54-year-old Hatem Abuharbid, who was killed during a robbery on Feb. 7.

"You could just tell that he was a lost dog," neighbor Cassandra Eubanks, who lives nearby, toldABC owned station KTRK in Houston.

"He would follow the cars and when he would realize that it was not his owner's car, he would just stand there and look helpless," Eubanks added.

Those stories are common...but they always get me.  Amazing how attached pets get to us and we get to them.

It's true.

We just lost our beagle Saturday night.  She was only 10.  The hardest part was breaking the news to my son.  My daughter is too young to understand or even realize.

It's hard when every time the house creaks, you think it's your dog walking into the room you're in.  Then you catch yourself and remember she's not there anymore. RIP Maui, she was a well loved member of our family.

 

It's too soon to start looking for another dog, some time needs to pass, but I would like to get a GSD and I know my wife wants another beagle.

...I believe animals have emotions and feelings. 

Years ago I had two dogs, they were pals.  One passed away and the other pretty much stopped living and would rarely eat, he missed his buddy.  

Pets connect with good owners as much as we connect with them...a very cool thing.

Agreed they have emotions and feelings, when I come home my gsd sits next to me and wraps her front legs around me and hugs my leg for 5 minutes looking at me like I was never coming back
