in thread Sad news

Talk to any dog lover and he/she will assure you dogs can feel sorrow too. There are so many stories of dogs displaying or even dieing of sorrow after the loss of the beloved owner or a friend dog they lived with for years that they can't all be made up. I believe we should be very cautious when talking about things unique to humans. There are some, but I don't think it's any of these "basic" "simple" things.

    My grandmother's dog died about 5 days after she did. He'd stopped eating when she died.

    If anyone who knew Blazar ends up reading this page you should know that even those with whom he was trivially involved here, like me, could tell he was a genuinely nice person, will miss him, and are deeply saddened that his time toward the end was so difficult. His attitude was amazingly good and he showed great strength and character.
