Mike, you can take solace by knowing Deacon had wonderful and loving parents.

I've always liked this quote by Natty Bumppo, then named the "Leatherstocking" in J F Cooper's The Pioneers:

“...that dog is more to be trusted than many a Christian man; for he never forgets a friend, and loves the hand that gives him bread.”

Dogs are the very best judges of charachter.

I agree Frank. I don't know whether it is a condemnation of mankind or a love of bird dogs, but I care more for bird dogs than for most humans I meet!!

Sorry for your loss Mike.

I dread the day I lose my next who'll likely be Rocky. He's a great hunter and fantastic travel companion. I have a year and a half old pup with the same blood lines coming along nicely to soften the blow a bit. But his loss will be particularly tough. A soul mate of sorts as Deacon seems to have been.

Jesus said "In heaven the lion will lay down with the lamb". Well if there are lions and lambs in heaven Surely there is room for a good dog ! Sorry I wish I could say I don't know how you feel.
