I think Woof is deserving of a sticky of this post.
RIP kind sir!
My heart sank upon reading the news and I'll admit my eyes started to water. I always got a kick out of his posts, always funny and never mean spirited. A cornerstone of GT and a just a good guy.
Godspeed Woof, and my prayers to your family. ;1
Still in shock,
RIP Woof. We miss you!
Woof, may he rest in peace. I didn't know him well, but what I knew of him always caused me to respect him and admire his character. I didn't know him well, but I know I will miss him.
The thought of Ed being reuinted with Woof is making me squall like a baby ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1
Prayers sent for Ed's loved ones, family, friends, and Yabba Dabba Do;w ;w
Dang. Sad news indeed. Until next time Woof... ;c
Woof will be greatly missed.
My prayers go out to his family and friends.
They should know that he was loved and respected by many of us here.
I don't know if I can express this properly, but I'll try:
I really liked the way Ed posted "as a dog", using the voice of Woof.
It occurred to me that many members of our species simply do not measure up to the noble canine.
It would be presumptuous of us to take on the persona of such an amiable, generous and loving creature.
From what I know of him, I think Ed did honor to those fine animals.
Rest In Peace, Woof.
Very sad day...I'm still sad. Woof was a real man. I'm so sad to hear of his passing. ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1
you know, its unbelievable how many people WOOF had an impact on here. i am VERY sad to hear of his passing, and i only know him through GT. imagine the impact he had on people he knew!
i think WOOF would be happy to know if everybody here with a dog (or other animal) would give their pal an extra scratch or three in honor of his love for his pups.
I am glad he came back for a while before he left. He was always good for bringing a smile with those goofy dog pics
My condolences to the family. RIP Woof.;w ;w
Our wonderful friend Nestor from Poland asked that we rename the "Critter Corner" forum in honor of Ed and Woof. I thought that would be a great idea. We could name it "Woof's Playground" or "Woof and his Friends", something along those lines. I think I'll start a poll in GNG.
BigCinBigD sends his condlances to Woof's friends and family.
Excellent idea about the Critter Corner. I just renamed it - Woof Memorial Critter's Corner and changed the description to -
In memory of Woof, a GT member who loved animals and always had a kind word to share. A corner to discuss your pets. All animal questions and discussions are welcome.
Thanks, Patricia! You rock.
A few years back, before his health problems, Ed was a moderator here in GnG with me. Being the perfect gentleman that he was, he would often email or call me if he saw something that, as he put it, "A lady like you shouldn't be reading".
Ed touched many lives here, mine included.
Eulogy to "Man's Best Friend" The Dog
Gentlemen of the jury:
The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has, he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most.
A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its clouds upon our heads. The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.
Gentlemen of the jury, a man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master's side.
He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer. He will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.
If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies, and when the last scene of all comes and death takes the master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death."
Seeya woof, you can always trust a man who loves his dogs so much.
I didn't realize that. Thanks for sharing it. BTW, it might be nice to sticky the obit in Critter Corner.
