God Bless Ed and his buddy Woof.......
Ed ---->;w ;w <----Woof

Will someone PLEASE let his wife know that we have named a forum here for him??? Maybe print a few posts about naming the forum for him and send them to his wife????
Peachie, I will be printing out this thread, along with anything else appropriate, and sending it to his wife. Another reminder that if anyone would like to send his family a card, please send it to me and I will forward everything to her.

During the GlocktoberFest in PA one of the no shoot targets that I set up was a mean dog - shoot and a good dog - no shoot. As everyone knew Woof, I wrote his name on the collar.

Woof Memorial Critter's Corner

I bet he was kind of person that his dog thought he was.

From the prayer, " "Lord, please make me the kind of person my dog thinks I am."

When I read of Woof's passing, I remembered some of his past posts that made me smile. I can't remember ever actually speaking (typing?) directly with him, but as others have said, he always seemed like a class act.

Others have mentioned his first dog (the orignial Woof). Given Ed's posts in the past, I think the following is also appropriate


Dogs and Heaven

Author Unknown.........................................

An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice - grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on.

They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there.

"Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him.

The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."

"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If He can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now. "

"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but, the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road"

So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside.

"Scuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"

"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable "

"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."

"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"

" No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in. We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final. "

The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."

"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"

"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but, then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"




THIS makes me think of Ed and Woof.

RIP.

God bless you Ed (Woof). Prayers for all his family.
Ed was a class act, and will be sorely missed.

Just got back.
I am just numb over this.
He would write: Woof Woof!
And I would answer: Meow Meow.
Will never get to do that with him again.

Very few people will ever touch people around the world without ever meeting them.
Woof was one of those who did.
Sad news. Tears in my eyes for someone who lived life to the fullest, and made a difference.

RIP Woof.

I remember a few years back Woof posted this poem in a thread about mistreated animals. It affected me so much, I still have it saved on disk.

Abandoned

by R. Wayne Edwards

A dog sits waiting in the hot summer sun,
Too faithful to leave, too frightened to run.
He s been there for days, with nothing to do
But sit by the road, waiting for you.

He can't understand why you left him that day.
He thought you and he were stopping to play.
He's sure you'll come back and that's why he stays.
How long will he suffer, how many more days?

His legs have grown weak, his throat's parched and dry.
He's sick now from hunger and falls with a sigh.
He lays down his head and closes his eyes.
If you could just see how a waiting dog dies.


;w

Woof, I miss you.

;c

Holy crap!! I can't believe I just now ran across this thread.

Friend of Woof, Please pass on my sincerest condolences to Mrs. Woof. I will be sure to say a prayer for both of them as well as their family and friends.

;1 I seem to have sprung a leak as well! ;1


"I am resurrection and I am life, says the Lord;
he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live;
and everyone who has life, and has committed himself to me in faith,
shall not die forever.

As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives
and that at the last he will stand upon the earth;
After my awaking, he will raise me up,
and in my body yet shall I see God.
I myself shall see, and my eyes behold him
who is my friend and not a stranger.

For none of us has life in himself,
and none becomes his own master when he dies.
For if we have life, we are alive in the Lord.
and if we die, we die in the Lord.
So, then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's possession.

Happy from now on are the dead who die in the Lord!
So it is, says the Spirit, for they rest from their labors."

"Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant
Woof. Acknowledge him, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your
own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own
redeeming. Receive him into the arms of your mercy, into the
blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious
company of the saints in light."

"May he with his mercy shield him, and with words of love, draw near."

I remember that like it was yesterday.

I just saw the new forum "in memory" of woof. I was stunned. I had dropped out of most of the forums to which woofy contributed but every once in a while I'd pop in for a looksee and there was always something by him that made me smile and wish I could always be so kind.
He will be missed.

God Bless. Mrs. 9mmMike and I will be praying for his family, especially hard during this Christmas season.

Mike
