Default Fishin' buddy drowned, R.I.P. Bubba

The other evening I went fishin' with my most loyal fishin' buddy. He followed me up and down the river like he has for the last 9 years, being a very strong swimmer I never worried about him.
While walking back to the ATV he got sideways against a rootwad and the current pulled him under before I could get to him.
He was a silly lookin' mutt, bein' a beagle/cocker mix, but, he was a loving companion. Our grand kids could all say Bubba before ma-ma and pa-pa.
Goodbye old buddy, my hunting, fishing and camping days will never be the same.

Sorry to hear that man. Losing a dog is tough, sounds like he was a good friend.

Sorry for your loss. RIP Bubba

It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature, charity toward tackle-makers, patience toward fish, a mockery of profits and egos, a quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have to decide a darned thing until next week. And it is discipline in the equality of men - for all men are equal before fish."

Sorry to hear, most family pets are family; just remember the good times over the last nine yrs. Hang in there.

Rick,

Words typed to this thread couldn't begin to convey my level of compassion and understanding of your tragedy. I've had 4 legged friends all my life and my heart goes out to you as I say, God Bless every man's dog and you for loving yours.

Ard

That's a hard one, Rick. I hope you can take some solice in your memories of many good times with him. There's a lot of us that know what you're going through, and words just really don't cut it at times like these.
