two years and 'm still missing you, because you were YOU, my Portos, my best friend ever.
That morning I wasn't ready to see you go away, and God! your look will remain into my heart until I live, you knew you were going away and I could do nothing to make you stay, I know it would have been unfair to you, you were tired and sick, my darling.
In your memory 14 doggies joined our family, and more will join in the future, why? Because after having a friend like you it's an honor to love and protect those like you, loyal, friendly, careful, loving and sweet.
I love you, Portos, so so so much, and I know you are waiting for me on the other side. I'll arrive one day and together we will go to our garden again, you will steal my favorite meal again, you will bark at dad when trying to get into the bed, you will scare Toby to death, and hide infinite number of bones under the bed.
Meanwhile receive from mom invisible kisses and hugs, and always remember there is one human on Earth who will never ever forget you.

With all the love I can,


I dedicate this song to my Portos, "The very last time" (thanks to Alan Parsons):

I need to remember the day
When we said goodbye for the very last time
There was still so much to say
But time came between us and quietly stole you away

Let me remember the day
We walk to the garden and sit for a while
The hours are slipping away
Still I try to hold them and freeze them in time
So leave me believing we'll meet here again
Promise me some kind of sign

As each day turns into night
I blow out the candle and turn down the sheet
And now that you've risen so high
I know that you watch over me as I sleep
Always believing we'll meet up again
Waiting for some kind of sign

So now I remember the day
When we said goodbye for the very last time
But no one can take you away
'cause here in my memories there's never a very last time
Never a very last time.

Buster's baby- brother!

Thanks, Moxie, Portos was indeed a very special doggie, my most faithful friend, who I shared with almost 13 years of my life.
Thanks again on behalf of Portos, tons of hugs hughughug

It one of life's great unfairnesses that dog lives are so short. They give us such wonderful experiences. It is wonderful that Portos left you so many memories to celebrate. You are truly blessed.

Be well and at peace
