That was sweet.
that was beautiful..
If you’ve owned a dog since you were a little kid, this will tug at your heart. I love my dog.
That was very emotional for me… As above.. if you’ve ever owned a dog for a period of time, this will hit you like a ton of bricks. Excellent work by the creator.
This was awesome, and sad. But more awesome. I need my heart back now.
that was detailed. sorry about your dog. and being fat and stuff.
I looked at my dog right after I read this and I cried… swear I did.
Wow, that was beautiful
My “dog” was a cat that was a constant companion of 19 years – not long enough……….
that was so sad i cried and made me miss my dog
I don’t have a dog and I cried at this.
Awwwww….. This made me cry…. I really miss my dog, I thought I was done crying over this, but this comic brought back all the memories of me and my dog Bandit… He was my best friend for 14 years since I was in preschool until I left for college. He was the only friend who never left me or lied to me or expected something from me other than my love and friendship. And here i am again 6 months after you died and I’m still crying over you. I love you Bandit D’Augustine, there will always be a place in my heart for you. RIP
I don’t cry, and you’re making tears come out of my face man… what the hell….
Wow my dogs been dead for years but i’m in floods of tears right now.
I have a stupid dog that barfs in the car, and gets constipated if we take him on road trips. He sneaks dumps in the dining room while we’re not watching, and barks his fool head off at big trucks that rumble down the street, even though they’d turn him into a road splatter.
But no one else greets us the way he does when we come home. Five minutes or five days, he has the same level of excitement when we walk in that door. No one else keeps feet warm like that dog. No one else sees when he goes on the defensive if he sees a threat to his family.
No one knows the impact he has made on a grown man who hated dogs his entire life, and loudly protested adopting a “stupid dog” from the local shelter for his son’s fifth birthday.
That man can’t sleep at night without his dog in the bed now. That stupid dog softened his heart and made him a better person. Turds are a small thing to deal with for the unconditional love and companionship a stupid dog offers. He puts up with our imperfections. It might be a small thing to ask that we do the same for him.
Some people don’t get the point because they don’t WANT to get the point. That’s why they’ll miss out on a lot of things. You don’t have to have a dog to understand the kind of love that looks past all of your ugly and shows you what a beautiful thing you are in spite of it.
That was really beautiful, it totally moved me. Thankyou.
wow, that made me all misty eyed. i work at an animal rescue (no kill) with over 400 animals. that comic…oh man… i wish i could hand it out to the people who abandon their dogs.
I had to have our 14 year old family dog put down a couple days ago. Had that dog since I was 12 years old. She turned into a complete pain in the ass in her older years, but as I held her head and felt it go limp in my hands as the vet injected that final lethal dose, I felt a tear trickle down my face, and realised I’d basically grown up with this dog. And regardless of all the mess, stress and annoyances that dog was always pleased to see me.
Wow, that was even less mature.
oh god, i really cried while reading this comic
Well said I couldn’t agree more.
I usually don’t comment on things that I find on the internet. ESPECIALLY things I stumbleupon. I just needed to share that this comic made me more emotional than any book or movie ever has. When I was born, my parents had already had a dog for a year. Her name was Lumina. She wasn’t very smart, but I loved her more than I loved most people. I took care of her for most of my life, until she passed away when I was 16 two years ago.
I’ve always been a bit of a dork, and didn’t have many friends when I was young, but Lumina loved me intensely despite my not being worth half a damn. When she started having hip problems when I was 14, I would carry her outside countless times a day so she could relieve herself. While I was doing it, I would get annoyed by the chore, and complain and bitch and moan. But I swear I would give so much just to have the chance to take her outside one more time.
To the creator of this topic: thank you, from the very bottom of my heart, for reminding me of the friend that I lost. I applaud you.
@ Tom & Andle Which part of “Yes, we are emotional beings but to let them control you at a whim is infantile” is too difficult for you to grasp?
I never implied that you should not feel something; I more-so implied that, typically, weak-minded people implicitly communicate that they are emotionally affected by something unwillingly.
As I see more and more people embrace certain emotional weaknesses, I can’t help but recall the movie ‘Idiocracy’.
Thank you very much for that story.
Our family always had a dog, i know when the dog i lived with at first died, i mst have been 7 or so, i was so sad
However, she was really old and she had a great life.
After that we got a problem dog, she is really cute, but she was given back to animal shelter a few times (maybe a few MORE times) After a few days she bit a friend of ours, so we considered giving her back, too. But we didn’t, we took her to a “dog school”, so she learned all the stuff.
Now she is really awesome, she learned a lot. She is still a little bit aggressive to other dogs, but all in all she is AWESOME =)
So as the dog before she lives with our grandmum&-dad, and we will problably get our REALLY own dog, living in our house, in 3 months.
Whatever, great story, very emotional. Thanks.
I’ve never commented on something on stumbleupon before, and I go through this site like its my job. My dog died just this past winter and I practically balled sitting here reading this. Thank you so much for reminding me of what an amazing friend I had.
Raise your hand if you did not realize it was a poem until the very end, when it noticeably rhymed
Hehe..this made me cry too, I had a dog that was my best friend up until my freshmen year, he was old, one eye, scruffy and fat, he was lazy and loud but i’d talk about my problems and hug him when I was upset, I didn’t really have anyone else to talk to about them so he was always there, we had to put him to sleep at age 17 because he was in too much pain, someone actually put him down without telling me.
i can’t stop crying…. what a great dog..i want one
today is the first time that i cried for my dog..i read the story and it made me cry louder!!thumbs up to all who love dog
