The hardest day of your life I am sure. I hope this can help you in your wrestling for knowing what was right. God bless

FROM FRIEND TO FRIEND

You're giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.

But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.

So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.

The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.

That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner 'til the end.

Please, understand just what this gift,
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.

You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.

So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.

Cut the leash that holds me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.

And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.

I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend,
And in your memories I'll run,
...a young dog once again.

Re: The OFFICIAL #CAIN BOND THREAD
 
Thank you Brandon. You have no idea how I wish I could take him to work with me or not have to work away from home. At almost 14, I know the clock is ticking on our time left with him. We've had dogs before that we had to take on that last vet trip & yes, it was terribly horrible, but with Gus it will be more than that. He is the dog of all dogs to me, like Cain is to you. The connection is different. I know you understand that.

Just watched the other videos posted & like I said in your FB page, Cain has an awesome legacy. I hope one day our paths cross & I have the honor of meeting & shaking the hand of the man Cain chose.

Brandon,

Thank you so much for posting such a difficult story. You and Cain were obviously amazing together. You're right, most people won't "get it". They've never known that pure true love of a dog and then had it ripped away. It's killing me that I will never get my time with my Princess back, and it's making me want to RUN home to Max & Midnight.

Thank you so much for Vicktory and for sharing your love of Cain with the world. He will now be able to forever help other people overcome their ignorance and be able to give those of us who understand a little smile to know that there's one more angel in heaven waiting to lead our precious ones in. Thank you.

This was a hard thread to read. We have 3 pits in our family and I know the pain you're going thru. Any time a family member is lost by any means at all is terribly painful. My thoughts go out to you!!
If I was closer I'd pack up some homebrew and some ammo and take ya out for an afternoon of therapy!

im sorry for all your pain and heartache but Cain is free... he will always be in my heart. he is one lucky dog to have had a best friend like you. i know you always gave him the best. he lived a life better than most people and he has helped you do more great things in life by simply just being apart of yours. im sorry things work out the way they do, but you did the right thing, probably the hardest thing ever, but that selfless unconditional love that Cain always showed you, you showed him right back. Brandon im sorry for your loss... Cain will be missed. deeply...

So I propose a toast.... To CAIN, may his loving memory live on everyday and may he be the continued driving force in your mission of better lives for animals everywhere...
To CAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still thinking about you. Here's hoping that each day will ease the brutal pain you are experiencing. My dogs are my life and many people can't comprehend that level of affection and commitment, especially to an animal. My dogs saved me from the deepest, darkest and most destructive sides of myself. I know that I saved their lives as well, but they have done more for me than I could have ever done for them. Hang in there, bro. We think about you daily in our house and continue to send comforting vibes to you, Ashley and the other pups. Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Cain would want to carry on and continue kicking ass. Viva la Cain!
