I finally got around to making a video tribute to Nitro.  I first heard this song several years ago and knew I would one day use it as background music to celebrate his life. It is beautiful, and touching, heartfelt and sad. I cry when I hear it, as I still cry for him. Here is a small taste of our life together.

Paula and Warrior Angel Nitro 

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"

Exhaling now!  I think I held my breath the whole time while biting my lip trying not to cry!   It didn't work!   I did have a lot of smiles throught the tears though....a lot!!

I love the ones of you two lounging around.  He always had to be close to you, didn't he?  He thoroughly enjoyed being your buddy, your pal, your friend.   He even seemed to enjoy hamming up for all the photos of "Nitro being Nitro",'especially the selfies with you!  You captured two hearts blending into one beautifully.

I love the little tribute area you set up for him.  I'm glad you included the Cardinal.  That was such a profound gift from Notro that day.

And those ears, especially when he was a youngster! 🙂  And he even used one of those gorgeous ears to shade your eye when you were sunbathw with him!  He sure did love sunbathing with you!

Yes Paula, that song could NOT be more perfect!!  I think we should change the name to  "Nitro's Anthem".  And it was a gift to us all.  I know I wasn't the only one who found comfort in those lyrics.  It re.inds us all that our $pirit Beings want nothing more for us than to think of them with a smilebig-grin in our hearts and a KNOWING that they are always with usheart

You put together a MAGNIFICENT .MASTERPIECE  for a MAGNIFICENT MASTERPIECE OF A DOG!!   This boy, this MAJESTIC NITRO, really, really did live a joyous life full of so much love and adoration!  And he lived that way every single moment, whether on four legs or three, whether as a puppy or as a senior!   Nitro truly did live life to the fullest and offers so much hope to anyone starting this journey!  We ALL want more time.  We ALL agree it's never enough time with our beloved dogs and cats.  And we can also agree that we need Warriors like Nitro to show everyone that statistics don't mean squat!   Their dog could be the next Nitro!  Their dog could beat the odds because they've seen it happen with Nitro!

We salute you Nitro!  We thank you for gracing us with your presence for all these years.  And Paula, thank you, and John a d Kodi for sharing this jojrney with us.  Your tribute is so heartfeltheart

With love

Sally and My Chunky Spiritual Being Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS.  Nitro, thank you for sending us all that adoration smike maker named Grizz!  He definitely has made us all lajgh and has brought so much joy to your Mom and Dad....and even Kodi (sometimes) 🙂

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

I should've known you would notice the missing ice cream Sally! It was hard to edit out photos to make it jive with the music, but I should NOT have taken out the ice cream....my apologies 🙂

It takes a strong woman to recognize the error of her ways so publicly!!!   clapclap

HOWEVRR, this omission is so egregious, Im not sure an "apology" is enough!   So in order to honor ALL the specialness of Nitro, you still have a chance to redeem yourself!   Ohhhh yeah......we'll be watching for a post of THAT picture right here, right now!!  way-cool

Ohhhh you got me with the song, I got all teary-eyed. What perfect music for a perfect tribute. That last photo of Nitro is like how I picture him with all his angel buddies, having a ball and ruling the pack. What a sweetie.

And Sally, I think that grape Otter Pop that Nitro is licking counts as ice cream 😉

That was such a beautiful tribute, the music fit the video. You did him a beautiful justice Paula. Even though I never had the privilege of meeting him, or you for that matter, I know he was a special dog. That ring you had made is really beautiful. I have sat here for years trying to think of something that I could do to keep a piece of Rosie close to my heart. I was going to get her paw print tattooed but when I opened the bag the dryness of the air had cracked it in half, it had never even been touched. That ring has stayed on my mind ever since.

That is the bestest ice cream picture!!! I can see why Sally barked at you now laughing

Sending many hugs and much love your way,

Jackie and Huckleberry

Hugs,

Jackie, David, Mitchell, Andy Oscar, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry

That was beautiful Paula!  OMD, those puppy ears!!

Warren Zevon is one of my favorites and that song is near and dear to my heart as well. 

For those not familiar with Warren's story, he was much more than 'Werewolves of London'.  He was diagnosed with terminal cancer and wrote that song and put out his last album while he was battling cancer.

I loved the video.  I liked both versions Paula. 

Thanks Karen for telling the story of Warren.  I wasn't familiar with that.  I do love this song though.
