Comic is running a bit late, here is a photo of the reason why. Please admire the beauty that was my dog, may he Rest in Peace.

Should be something up in a few hours, at latest something in the morning.

Edit: Originally I was going to take this pic down... but I am going to leave it up. I think my dog deserves that much.

We named our dog Comrade, it means friend. We got Comrade when he was just 9 weeks old, and he was a great part of our life for six years. He enjoyed life, loved people, and didn't have a mean bone in his body. Comrade often found baby wild life, and instead of hurting it, he would lick it a bunch and assume he made himself a new friend. His favorite things to do? Everything. His favorite toy was a squeaky hamburger.

The loss of a beloved pet is something a lot of people have had to deal with in their life. Anyone that has, has shared your pain in one way or another. I know my family has felt that loss many times. It doesn't get any easier the second or third time.
Boomer 22nd Aug 2014, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
Did he die of a natural death? I hope it was the peaceful kind, I say that because I don't see death as end, I see it as a new life, our lives judge us on three paths, one where someone lived a good and happy life find sanctuary, the others who did not do the right things face eternal punishment, and some who in between or still have unfinished buisiness stay here with who they care for, I hope he is in sanctuary or has unfinished buisiness to be with you guys.
Amocin 22nd Aug 2014, 1:38 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
No, it was not natural. He got out of the yard and after being missing for several hours (we searched about five times for him) we finally found him. He had been hit by a car but was still alive. He was unable to move his back legs, or much at all, so I drove him to the emergency vet. After some nice strong pain meds and X-Rays, we determined that it was best to put him to sleep due to his extensive injuries. He went peacefully, but it was nowhere near his time. He was only six years old.
TimeShift 22nd Aug 2014, 2:52 AM edit delete reply
wait, WHAT? Someone hit the poor woof with his car and drove away?

I really hope somebody saw this selfish maniac simply driving away without doing anything....aaaarrrghhh - things like that make me so angry I forget what I'm trying to type....
Amocin 22nd Aug 2014, 3:10 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
Yeah, whoever hit him just kept on going. However, there were people out walking their own dog who saw it happen. They pulled him out of the road and called the cops, who stayed with my dog until I arrived to take him to the vet. So he wasnt never alone after the accident happened, which I am sure helped made him feel sightly better... he was a very social dog, he loved people, so just seeing new people was a treat for him.
Donnellson 22nd Aug 2014, 4:45 PM edit delete reply
At least you can take some comfort in that knowledge. I know there is nothing that can be said to lessen the pain but we're here for ya.
Shade 23rd Aug 2014, 2:43 AM edit delete reply
That's normally why I hate most people in this world, they never (pardon my language) give a fuck about anyone else but themselves, way to go America, show us what this country is like today, I hate it. I also hate loosing animals in my family when they were young, a kitten I had got out on night and was eaten by a stupid owl, that was the worst one, another one was a dog who was truly my best friend but his leg got injured and infected so badly that it spread tthrough him so we had to put him down to end his pain because it didn't kill him but it would leave him hurting for the rest of his life.
Boomer 24th Aug 2014, 6:32 PM edit delete reply
I specifically remember you telling me one time that your cat was eaten by coyotes not an owl
Shade 25th Aug 2014, 12:49 AM edit delete reply
Yes three of my cats were eaten by coyotes and one by my neighbors.
Boomer 25th Aug 2014, 6:37 PM edit delete reply
Your neighbors ate your cat?!
Shade 26th Aug 2014, 12:30 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, very long ago when I was young, honestly, if that had happened when I was older, those sick people would have more than a punch to the face, leave them alive of course because I'm not like them but at least throw them at a hospital entrance and drive off flipping them off the whole way.
ichingdivine 26th Aug 2014, 1:57 AM edit delete reply
My sincere condolences for your loss, but it was better off that the driver didn't stick around. A quick Google search would show you that you would have been liable for any damages to him or his car had he sued. He probably didn't know that and thought he would have been liable for your dog, which would explain why he didn't stick around. If he had, he probably would have learned from the cops that you were liable for his car and then, if he were really an ass, you would have lost a friend and had to pay to repair the asshole's car that killed him.

But since he didn't stick around to find out your identity, it'll be much harder for him to sue.

I know it's not much, but I hope that that's just a little bit of a silver lining in this thundercloud of a tragedy.
Amocin 26th Aug 2014, 2:19 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
I am well aware of this, and pardon my saying so, but this is kinda rude to point out. I already said that i do not blame the driver, though I doubt there was little I could have done about my dog's elaborate escape attempt.

There is no silver lining in this, you may think it, but I dont. I lost a friend, and no amount of money saved makes that hurt any less.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Take as much time as you need. Thats family. its more important than a webcomic :/

As a fellow whio has lost a pet in his life time (my cat of 14 years...saw me through highschool the furry buddy he was) May your beloved Canine find peace on the other side.

Menarra 22nd Aug 2014, 1:45 AM edit delete reply
D: DDDD: I am so sorry! Pets are part of the family and that is just horrible :(
HelleBelle 22nd Aug 2014, 1:51 AM edit delete reply
I very recently had to put my cat to sleep, so I know how you feel with the loss. I'm not religious at all, but I definitely believe there is something out there like the Rainbow Bridge, where our furry family members are waiting for us to join them.
Take as much time as you need. I definitely understand needing some time to just breathe and grieve :(
Anorath 22nd Aug 2014, 2:06 AM edit delete reply
Wow I'm so sorry to hear. I know how it feels all too well, I lost a cat and dog that I grew up with. They were so close. I hope you're alright.

Aw hell I'm so sorry for your loss, it's never easy losing a pet, it is indeed just like lossing a family member. Thinking of you.

I feel your lose Amocin. I have two border collie crosses, sisters from the same litter, they are my kids. They are 9 years old, but to me they are and will always be the two little bundles of love that came into my life all those years ago.

I lost my childhood k-9 friend too... know what that is like... honestly you should take a week off, we'll all understand and support you.

Sorry to hear about your loss. He looks like he has been an amazing dog!
Darian 22nd Aug 2014, 3:07 AM edit delete reply
That's horrible... was the driver found?

I had a cat who was hit by a car... he was missing for days then kids across the street found him in a black trash bag behind the sign of our neighborhood... they only knew it was him because of his tag... that's how bad it was... my dad cried for hours, and he doesn't cry for anything, least not in front of people... we all loved him so much... i don't know what I'd do if I lost his sister too...
Amocin 22nd Aug 2014, 3:14 AM edit delete reply

I have no idea, and the cop that was there made no mention of identifying the driver. So I doubt anybody got the car's information. I dont blame the driver though, it happened shortly after the sun had set, and he is a black dog, shit happens.. sure the dude should have stopped, but would he have been able to do anything? No, not really.
Boomer 24th Aug 2014, 6:41 PM edit delete reply
Im sorry to say it but Shade's right, barely any one in America cares about others, if I were the one who hit your dog, I'd stop, carry him to the side walk, check house adress and bring him to you repeatedly saying sorry.
Boomer 25th Aug 2014, 12:59 AM edit delete reply
That's all I would be able to say, no joke, scared for the dogs life, waiting for you or your husband to hit me, speachless, all that stuff.
ichingdivine 26th Aug 2014, 1:50 AM edit delete reply
A court of law would not have ruled the driver as being at fault. It's not the drivers responsibility to protect the dog, it's the owner's responsibility. In fact, a court would have found the owner guilty of negligence and demanded reprimand had there been any damage done to the driver or his car.

Even if the scenario were the same and the dog were a toddler that ran out in the middle of the street and the driver killed him, the driver still would not be at fault.
Shade 28th Aug 2014, 1:06 AM edit delete reply
It is still ridiculous that the driver did not stop, middle of the night, dusk, dawn, daylight, their is no reason why the person kept going. they're all out jerks, and if they did realise what they had done, they should have at least apologise for what happened on the next day. I said this once and I'll say it again, I hate people.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I'm so sorry for the loss of your dog. I've known a few Border Collies and played frisbee with one a bunch, they are wonderful and smart. My heart goes out to you, losing a friend sucks

Don't worry, he's in a better place now.
You will have the chance to see him again, once your own life here will be completed. At least, this is what i choose to believe.
Head's up, because you still have plenty of things to do in this life!

@Donnaith: I saw that very writ in a vets office the day we had to put our family member of 15yrs down due to her having such hip dysplasia that she could not longer even pick herself up long enough to eat or go outside. It is VERY well said and perfect for the situation.

Now, as for Mr. / Ms. Anonymous, I can only say these few things.... I have been an OTR truck driver for about 7 months now, and I have to tell you that folks on the road are not the same people you interact with face to face. Not all, but the vast majority of them become absotively oblivious to ANYTHING going on around them when behind the wheel. I've even seen people hit raccoons, possums, turtles, geese, ducks and yes, even deer and not even so much as brake after the fact. People do not care. Very few, if any at all. And you're lucky the guy didn't stick around. Emotions get in the way of our common sense in the heat of the moment. I still wish that it wouldn't have happened, to spare you and your family the pain and loss. My deepest sympathies for that, Amp, to you and yours. No one ever enjoys losing someone precious to them.

Yeah, that's for sure, she died naturally and unnaturally. She was old, but was very sick and had hypothyroid, my mother was closest her and tried to help but she got too skinny and she was a much happier dog when she was chunky, we tried to bring her back to her chunky self but it didn't work, she was in pain but still tried to make my family comfortable. When I heard that she died I tried to hold back my tears and visit my mom's place as soon as I could, and I saw her grave and felt tremendous pain in me to see it. She fought through porvo and chemicals to stay here with us but this one could not be helped
