    WE just lost our mixed breed that we had for 14 years about 2 weeks ago.The night before I had to put him to sleep he was having countinious seizures and Pepper my Bully sat up in her room upstairs and cried and whined all night for her friend.
    When I came home the next afternoon from taking him to the vet to have him put down and burying him Pepper started looking at me and went to the door looking for her buddy. She sat by the steps and cried , Bully's cry. They shed real tears. She was heartbroken , her playmate is gone and she knows he passed away.
    He was my daughters service dog and her best friend. Our friend had severe diabetes and his last days we found he had brain cancer.
    He was a great dog. Two months or so before his death Before we knew just how sick he was I let my daughter play in the yard with her doggy and my Pepper, Tsula ,her dog being old did not really care to play much so most times he would find a cozy spot in the shade and watch her and Pepper play.
    This day in particular she and PEP were playing when two PitBulls came out the woods and headed towards her and Pepper.Tsula headed them off and got into a vicious fight with both Pits giving my daughter time to get inside. She came to me crying about the dogs hurting her buddy so I ran out expecting to find him dead or badly mauled. I found him on his feet and the Pits bulls running off in the woods. Poor guy was tore up bad I got him to the vet and got him patched up and when we got home I gave that dog a big damn bowl of beef for saving my daughters life from them Pits. Right before they had come up there they had attacked and killed a neighbors dog and severly injuried another neighbors dog. These were two Pits someone abandoned and they had gone rougish. The Cops ended up having to shoot them both when they tried to attack a person in a parking lot.
    Two days later we had him back at the vets because he was ill and then was when we found out how sick he was. That dog is my biggest HERO. despite being gravely ill he only thought was to protect his friend Pepper and his best friend ,My daughter.
    I went by his grave yesterday on my way home to thank him again.
    I gotta stop now

    @Victor Y..what a great story and what a wonderful dog he was! We've lost too many special guys and gals...you will always remember him and someday it won't hurt so bad. He's in a better place..waiting for his family that he loved so much. And I bet he's protecting you all still! Thanks for sharing.

    @Victor Y What a powerful and moving story and what a blessing it was to have a dog like that in your lives and a loving family in his life. I will cherish the memory of him. Sending smoochies to your sweet bully who cried.

    I do believe dogs know death, we had one of Lucy Lu's pups die at 2 weeks old, I had the pup in my arms when he died, I let Lucy see the pup, she smelled him gave him a kiss and looked up at my and I knew she knew. I buried him in the back yard and marked the grave with a little bench, and a little concrete bully that I painted the color of him. Snowflake was one of his litter mates and sometimes she would go and lay under the bench, I always wondered if she knew. It was heart warming to see her visit her little brother. The pic is small because the phone I had at the time did not take good pics. It is Snowflake under the bench.

    Have a Great Bully Day.

    @Victor Y....another great story. So touching that your dog loved you and your family so much. I think we need some more hugs! I need a box of tissues, too.

They were right and did exactly that, except Ace went one step further and gave him a kiss on the face. I sight that I'll never forget. Then they carried on like it was ok from that point on. When Orion passed in January it was so sudden and chaotic that us wisking him out of the house in the middle of the night to try to hopefully get him to the vet in time, we forgot about one thing, Ace. It all happened in front of him and then we came home without Orion. It nearly killed me to watch him night after night, week after week look for his litter mate of nearly 13 years. So having experienced two different sides of of death in dogs and seeing how calm Ace and Orion (the one that passed in Jan.) were, my answer is yes, Dogs understand death. In other animals or humans.
    I feel very sorry for Ace. When the time comes and you have more than one dog, let's remember to let the other dogs sniff the body of the dog that's passed away, so that they know what has happened.
