Alfie died today - he passed away in his sleep at 6am this morning. My dear loyal protector, I will never forget you. :heart: :cry: :heart:

Dec 10th 2004 - Jan 30th 2013




-------------------------------------------------



I get quite of lot of emails asking me to upload some candid (unedited) images, so I thought I'd show you this one with my gorgeous Great Dane Alfie, taken during a break while shooting in France earlier in the year. Alfie has a pet passport, so I often take him with me when I go away (my bodyguard!).

A wonderful portrait of you two! I'm sure you were as special to him as he was to you, and really that is about the best thing we can ask for in life.

I've been away, so I hadn't seen this note about losing Alfie.   I just lost my dog after 14 years, so I grieve with you...

Thanks! It's tough to lose an old friend. We dove right back in and now have these two goobers and another, all rescues. Can't seem to stay under 3 dogs at a time.....

I know how it is. When my first one died, it took a while to get the a new one. I found Gaius the same day Sandy (another great dane) died and just couldn't resist. He was just 1 week old.

awwwwwwww:( what a big beautiful sweet dog he was, i can tell...i swear, losing pets seems (SOMETIMES) harder than losing...people, old friends, relatives etc. and i think there's an easy reason for this, most people in your life don't CUDDLE with you day after day, kiss you, make you go 'aww' for years n years, you honestly don't bond as much as you do with a pet with many fellow humans, only a handful. plus they stay in a semi fragile state forever like a baby, you have to take care of them...it's a super special bond.

Thank you yes he was when on duty, but at home he was a bit of a wally, chasing his tail, giving my rabbit rides around the house and trying to jump 6ft fences :heart:

I believe I see age and wisdom in his eyes.

I have a medium sized black lab mix (mostly Schnauzer). I don't know what I would do without her.

I had 2 black lab girls when I was a boy and living in Texas. When my family moved we had to give them away. I am not sure what became of them. They were such lovely creatures.
