    :(

    I had an American Pittbull 5-weeks old, very cute. her full name is Kokoruko but we call her KoKo for short, her name sounds exactly like the word Coa Coa since her coat is coa coa brown and white, she has white chest and white chin. She loved me so much that she sleeps on the carpet right beside the bed on the side where I sleep and I have to let my hand hang down from the side of the bed so I can rest my hand on her back and she would fall asleep. She learned how to sit, laydown, give paw, and If I put food in her face she would not eat it unless I say "go!" she learned all this in less than 2-days and never forgets any of the command. I leave her in the backyard during my working hours and once I came home early and peeked through the blinds. She was like a snow white. All the birds and squirral was eating her food and she was just laying there watching them eat her food with a big grin on her face. Everyday she would eat half of her food and save the rest for her friends. One day I came home and she disapeared. I put up signs with a pictures of her everywhere. Its been 1 year already and I felt like I lost a big peice of my life. Everyday I think about KoKo. Theres alot of kids around my city that illegally breed pitbulls and fight them. I could only hope that KoKo is not dogknapped and forced to fight. No offense to anyone but I never like dogs before, I've always been a cat type of guy, but KoKo changed my stereotypes on dogs. Did anyone ever lost a best friend like me? Share your story,I would love to read about it.

    Im sorry to hear that. Maybe somebody just loved him as much as you did and didn't want to return him to you and probably taking care of her and loving her as much as you would be. I know how it feels to loose your best friend.

    I know you must feel a huge emptiness inside. I don't know what I'd do if one of mine disappeared.

    i know how you feel too. this thanksgiving my aunt is coming down from CT to pick up roxy. she is a maltese and shih tzu 4 month old puppy. she is extremely cute and is the world to me. i know it may not seem right but i have said 'i love you' to roxy in the last month more than i have said to my parents for the last several years. we got her at the end of october because we were going to hold onto her until my breeder aunt comes down to pick her up. i was warned by the breeder (who cried terribly when she had to leave her baby too) that i had better not get too attached or else i wont be able to let her go. well it was really easier said than done. in less than a week i was attached to her like jesus was attached to his cross. i had to feed, train, play, and take responsibility over her since my whole family dislikes dogs. she is supposed to sleep locked up in her crate but i would sneak her into my bed at night when she would whine. then i got caught so now i decided to sleep out on the couch and let roxy sleep on the carpet with my hand hanging down from the couch so she will know i am there. i spoiled her and i definitely will nto regret that. i love her soo much. and now that i have to five her up in 3 days i try to cuddle up with her and give her the best times of her life for the last 3 days i have with her. but my mom says that she is just a smelly "thing" and to throw her back into the kitchen and stop holding her. well this leads to me getting into a huge argument with my mom. roxy has yeast infection in her ears and my mom says its 'nothing'. it jsut angers me. now she sees that i love her so much and she gives me trouble that i shouldnt be doing this kind of stuff because i am a boy. i dont care, she is my little baby. she yells at me to be a man about it. i just cant understand why god will take away my BEST friend. as some of you know i live in a town where i dont get along with ANYBODY. well roxy is my true friend. she plays with me and actually understands when im sad. its just the worst thing that have happened to me. how can they do this to me?? :( :(

    CD, don't ever let anyone tell you it's not "manly" to care so much for something. That's not true. You should see my Charley (the Most Significant Other - MSO). ;) Trust me, no one would ever even consider saying something like that to him. On one hand, he was a Golden Gloves fighter, open class and won several titles. He had offers to go pro, but he wanted to finish college, then messed his knees up badly. There are still quite a few local "toughs" who talk about not wanting to get on his bad side. lol. On the other hand, you should see him talking baby talk to the dogs, letting Shiva nuzzle his moustache, and you should really see him tear up when he talks about some of his old dogs or if we're watching some really touching movie. Being a man doesn't have anything to do with being tough, or not being tender and loving. It has to do with caring and being responsible, doing what needs to be done and standing up for what's right and speaking out when you know something is wrong. It sounds to me like you're on track to be a marvelous, decent human being. Some day you're going to have a very lucky wife and some extremely lucky kids! And really lucky, well loved and cared for pets!

    awww Renne your soo sweet and CD I'm going to repeat the same thing Renee said. Its a shame your mom doesn't feel the same about animals as you do. My hubby never wanted another dog so I had to sneak Nora in and make up some sob story. That darn dog knew exactly who to cuddle up to and won him over by week's end. I would come around the corner and catch him petting her and kissing her. He would never let me see it. :eek: When I finally told him the truth that she was staying he was actually relieved LOL.

    When you get older and on your own, I'm sure you will make another puppy the luckiest one in the world!

    Good luck to you !

    CrazyDog, I feel so bad for you. I wish there was some way for you to keep Roxy. It is important to have someone to talk to and confide in and I believe Roxy is exactly that. She is YOUR best friend! Do you think that your mom would reconsider if she knew how much you love Roxy? I know how it feels to lose your best friend and I still have an empty feeling in my stomach and a HUGE hole in my heart. I really hope everything turns out ok for you. Please let us know.

    thanks everyone. you all helped me think about the positive things about having roxy in my life, rather than the negative feeling of roxy leaving. yes i tried to show my mom that i love roxy more than anything in the world but she will yell at me when she sees me cuddle up with her. she will make me go set the laundry and wash all of my clothes. even after i give roxy a bath she tells me to stop cuddling with her because it is disgusting and roxy is just a little dirty creature. whenever i play with her she just says to leave her alone because if i play with her alot then at night when she wakes up then she will keep barking to be played/cuddled with. it gets me so mad
    i love coming onto this forum because its the only plave, besides right next to roxy, that i feel warm and comfortable. i always go on here in computer class to see if anybody is answering my posts. nobody knows how i feel around here. they just say that its stupid how i love animals so much instead of going out and spending every minute of my free time playing basketball or something. you all are the only ones who care and see how i feel. thank you all

    Crazydog - I want you to do something for me, for all of your friends here, for all the dogs you'll love in your life, and most of all for yourself: study hard and get good grades, do take time to participate in something that keeps your body strong and healthy, take every opportunity to volunteer with animals, and go to college so you can (if you want) have the opportunity to have a career working with animals, whether it's as a vet, working with animals in a zoo, psychology, whatever your heart leads you toward. Who knows? You might even end up writing books about animals!

    renee yeah im trying in school right now. im planning to be either a computer engineer/programmer. or a vet or something that has to do with animals. i have to get in 40 hours of community service for my confirmation bible class, so i am trying to find a zoo , or a place that deals with animals, so i can volunteer there. i still got 3 years until i graduate and its kinda hard in school right now since i really dislike the teachers and people there so much. but it always bring a smile on my face after i arrive home, off the hour ride on the bus, and see roxy sitting in front of the window with her tail wagging (and somehow, with her cleverness, got out of the kitchen's gates) and barking. its so great coming home to my dog knowing that she is as excited as me. what more can i ask for, but for her to be with me forever?

    OH, I remember those awful, long bus rides home! I had a couple of teachers I kept a running war with, too. I just made sure I was always ahead so they couldn't cause too much trouble for me.

    Do you have guidance counselors at school? They can be a big help with getting yourself ready for college and finding scholarships and internships, and might even be able to help you find someplace to do your 40 hours of community service.

    My dogs were the best thing about coming home, too. I used to dread the weekends - school was better than having to put up with my little sister and deal with my Mom. My German Shepherd would ignore my sister no matter what she did to get his attention. You'd have laughed to see how funny he was. Purdue would literally turn his back on her and act like she wasn't there; it made her furious! She'd start screaming and yelling and Gulliver, our big yellow tomcat, would come flying and bite her. Animals are great!

    haha renee i am ust like how you were. roxy does the same. my older sister will do ANYTHING to get roxys attention but she will just do the same. my sister, just like yours, will be furious and scream. and then one time roxy actually went up to her to play but she shoo'ed her away because she didnt want to play, she was too busy. and yes those bus rides are boring. i fall asleep and miss my bus stop then end up havign to walk a mile home. and my guidance counselors are the worst ever. they will not even bother to help you with anything.
