I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It sounds to me like you gave Mason a very beautiful life full of walks and hikes some dogs and people can only dream of. We never know how our end will come in this life, all we can do is live each day to the fullest. That's what you were doing when Mason gave you the greatest gift of love anyone can ever give to someone, he laid down his life so his family could live. That's a pretty special gift to be bestowed with. I know that you are grieving pretty badly, 16 years is a lot of time to spend with someone. It will take some time to adjust. All we can do is celebrate the memory of their life by being more loving people and then in time learn to share the love we had for them with others. You have my heartfelt condolences for your loss of Mason, Hannah.
Although there are no words that will ease the pain of losing such a special family member, you have many memories of a special dog. Your forgiveness and understanding of the Wolfs desperate situation and the role Steve Mason played in his sacrifice for you and your little ones is remarkable. You and Steve Mason are lucky to have had such a special and unforgettable relationship.
Hannah, what a story! Wow! Are they the best creatures God had ever created or what? Steve Mason was absolutely gorgeous and he loved you and the pups dearly. He did what he needed to do to protect his loved ones, with you helping to protect your loved ones, beside him. Your pain of that awful memory will be with you always, but you couldn't bear to put him down and he couldn't bear to leave you in his sleep, so looking at it as this was the way it had to be for both of you may help. I just had to put down my 16 year old Golden on the 24th of February and every day, I just kinda thought that she would magically live forever. It doesn't happen that way. Sadly. We will meet again though, I truly believe that with all my heart. My condolences go out to you from my soul, remember the good moments (every minute really was a good moment). And remember how much he loved you and knew that you loved him, enough to protect you even if it caused his demise. By the way, where did the name Steve Mason come from? Look up to the sky at any point to see your beloved boy, he is giving you all his love still from above.
you know what? i think mason was proud to leave you this way. no feeble, lingering passage for him - no, he had to leave saving two lives: yours and the wolf's. for her to be that thin and desperate, maybe she had puppies, so he saved them, too. truly a spectacular dog and a hero's ending.
We lost a dog under tragic circumstances but I hold onto the fact that she died in her favourite place, doing her favourite thing and she just ran from earth straight into heaven. I bet Mason feels the same. His favourite place, his favourite person, an activity he loved and I bet he ran at the wolf knowing he would run straight to heaven too. Tears for your loss and your grief, wishes for peace and good memories to help you smile.
umm gun ! yeah wouldn't lve home without it
My 1st dog was nearly 16 when my dad had to make the decision to put him down. He lived like yours did though, he never stopped romping through the woods, running like he was much younger and dragging home all sorts of dead things. On his last day he mixed it up with a raccoon, which most of you know can be vicious little critters. He fought hard, but limped home with a scratched up face, a few broken ribs and punctured lung. It was an awful day, but as you so eloquently said, he went out like a thunder bolt - he went out like he liked to live. So as sad as it was, it was better than many alternatives. I understand your grief, but love the way you have chosen to look at it. Peace to you!
sherry: way show typical human arrogance.
@ three norms ok can lay there let the wolf eat you
@Sherry: There's a time and a place. You failed at both.
@ cris i dont go out to intentionally shoot at anything, it will be to protect myself in case of attack. so no defending my life and others is no fail. just because an animal comes around im not going to shoot it, but that wolf was stalking them and attacked. u can just lay there if you want to be dinner
It has nothing to do with protecting yourself or carrying a gun. The point is, someone is in grieving and took the time to dedicate a post in memory of their dog. That is not the time and place to criticise them and make them feel even worse for not carrying a gun for protection.
R.I.P. Mason. With U I found my hero of the day! U R amazing even now.
