Farewell Soo, loyal companion and dear friend.

THERE was great sadness in my home last week. Soolam, my senior service dog, was put down. He was 13. The decision to euthanize Soo, as my other dogs and I fondly knew him, was not at all easy.

The move  was quickly reached when the Golden Retriever could no longer stand or walk. He could not even eat his meals without throwing up.

However, everything about Soo’s final journey on earth turned out to be as intriguing and uncanny as the day when he first arrived.

He was  barely two months old then. The pup was a gift from a couple who were  doctors. The purpose was to see if a retriever could make a good service dog.

 

Friend for life: The writer spending precious moments with Soo before he was euthanised.

He needed to be fed as many as four times a day. I had to clean up after a dog that seemed to have an endless supply of poo.

The most difficult part, however, was to grab the pup and put him back in  his crate. Fortunately, his senior canine partners literally lent their  paws to solve the problem.

Soo had a knack of chasing the big dogs around the house. One of them would cleverly use the situation to  dash back to me so that I could grab Soo.

The experience of  raising and training Soo helped to psyche me up. And as for Soo, he went on to become a service dog that was parallel to none.

He was the perfect companion to attend meetings with. He’d been to church numerous times and even stayed completely unnoticed at government meetings. Some of the chairpersons discovered his presence only after the event.

He has helped me in unusual places, too. These include in the toilet at  the United Nations building in Kuala Lumpur (when my shoe was out of  reach and the soap fell on the floor).

He also sat through a serious discussion with people with AIDS at the Malaysian AIDS Council.

On top of all these, Soo had appeared scores of times in the media which  included newspapers, TV and radio. He was the main star of a special  video which featured my service dogs.

Once when I was caught in a 30-minute thunderstorm in a forest, Soo chose to get drenched with me  in the heavy downpour rather than seek shelter elsewhere.

In his  more than a decade of service, Soo relished his car rides the most – so  much so that I became his private chauffeur. We must have travelled  thousands of kilometres over the decade and only once, in all those  years, did he throw up in the back seat.

Once our adventure led  us all the way to Penang on a grueling 24-hour trip where Soo performed and wowed several hundred people at a dog event with his service dog  skills.

On that fateful Sunday morning, an extremely feeble Soo  looked straight into my eyes. It was as if he was telling me to be  strong for him and do the right thing to painlessly end his suffering.

He never once whimpered or flinched. He took every opportunity to lay his  head on my shoulder or hands whenever I was by his side.

Despite  the pain, Soo remained resolute and dignified in the back seat of my car during his final journey to the veterinarian. He was on my lap with his head held high as I wheeled into the clinic.

I made sure that my hero fell asleep before he entered into eternal sleep. The clinic  didn’t charge me anything for putting a great dog down.

Another doctor, who is an expert in dog show winning breeds, offered to bury Soo in his yard at home.

My king, I’m proud to say, is now privileged to be the only retriever laid to rest with other national and international champion Doberman and  German Shepherd Dog breeds that have crossed over the rainbow bridge  before him.

Even more amazing is the fact that Soo is buried in  the home of the mother of my latest and youngest service dog candidate,  Dobe Ace Zhar the Doberman.

Last Saturday, Zhar and I were at an  international dog show in KL with more than 200 dogs from all over Asia. And although I was the only person in a wheelchair there, Zhar stuck  close to me much like Soo used to do during happier days.

And by a very strange coincidence, Zhar kept climbing up on my lap several times as if to say: “Don’t worry, you’re safe now. I’m with you.”

Angels don’t always come with wings; sometimes they have tails, even if it happens to be a rather short one.

 

Thank you.

    Dear Rinpoche, I don’t have a friend like that but I do wish for one. My mother promised me that she is going to buy me a golden retriever when we can afford to buy my mom’s dream house!!! I can’t wait to have a dog!!!

  2. Beatrix Ooi on Jan 3, 2014 at 12:20 am

    This is very touching, I think that Soo passed away in peace. At least his life partner treated him very well, it’s sad to know that he had to die this way. May Soo take a good rebirth and be reborn as a human. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, this is a very great story.

  3. Vinnie Tan on Aug 15, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    It is definitely a touching story of how strong and deep relationship between a owner and their dog. The loyalty of the Soo is strong. Soo has such a caring nature for a service dog. I am really happy that the writer of the article has such as dog that accompanies him. It is just heart warming that the connection between the two of them are so deep and endearing.

    Although by putting dog Soo is the only way to end Soo’s misery, but I do not agree that we such end the animal’s life like that. They should be given the opportunity to life all the way till their life ends by itself instead of us as owners to say that it is times up for the animals.

  4. tenzin llhamo on Nov 21, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    This is such a touching story. Soo is such a loyal companion and although he was in pain, he stayed loyal till the end. I could never euthanize my pet if I was in such a situation. I would rather spend the time to take care of my dog till he dies. I often think that animals are better companions as they will be at your side no matter what happens. Such a beautiful story to remember…

  5. beatrix ooi on Nov 8, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    This is a very touching story. How many friends or family do we have like Soo? It’s so sad that they have to euthanise him, but I think it’s a better way for Soo to leave without any further suffering. He is such a wonderful friend. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  6. Julien Roth on Nov 8, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    I love how no matter how hard it was to take care of this dog. They still did everything they could to love and care for him. This story was very painful yet touching. Its sad that the dog had been in so much pain. He couldn’t even eat his food or walk. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  7. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 27, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    A really very touching story indeed! I love especially the last line – that ‘angels dont always come with wings; sometimes they have tails, even if it happens to be a rather short one’

    Dogs are loyal breed of beings. And I am glad I have one such angel with me.

  8. Yoke Fui on Feb 29, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    People usually think it is out of their love for the pets that they put their pets down.

    Is it truly so ?

    Could it be we can’t stand the sight of pain and suffering or we refuse to confront these feelings that we choose to put the animals down in the pretense of being kind ?

  9. Karen C. on Feb 3, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    I always believe the existence of real friendship between human and animals, especially dogs. Dogs are known to be loyal and faithful (if you treat them well). This is such a touching real story that just happened in our neighborhood, it’s not a story that made up by newspaper just to attract the viewerships. Dogs are really man’s best friend and dogs will never betray us.

    Here’s a link where it talks about dogs that saved their owner’s life and etc:

    Facing such situation is very difficult to decide in this case,for some people it is better to endure short pain rather than long pain. To me in this case the owner is on wheelchair,may be he has to choose euthanasia for his dog.But i feel from buddhist point of view,no killing, if u have more people in the house who can take turn to look after the dog,it is better to let the dog die a natural death.

  11. William on Jan 21, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    This is such a touching story! Animals are caring and loving too as seen from Soo. It is love and loyalty from start to the end. I’m sure that Soo would have been reincarnated to a better place since he has taken care of his master during his lifetime and created a lot of merits for himself. I’m also happy that the owner manage to get another dog who is equally loving and loyal to him. A heart warming story.

  12. susan on Jan 18, 2012 at 12:11 am

    gosh… i feel for this man. So fortunate to have made such close bond with Soo, but the pain of losing such a companion is beyond words.

    Last year in August, I lost two of my beloved dogs Jannic and Abram, strangely…just one day a part from each other. Both died due to old age.

    A few weeks before Jannic died, she had so much health complication. She finally couldn’t lift herself up even to go poop or pee. So I had to clean her each night when i got home. She tried to muster up the strength to be cheerful though she couldn’t move much. After being cleaned, she’d put her head on my lap and her paw in my hand. She never ones winced.

    Abram (cocker spaniel) had been with me since he was a little puppy, while I was living in the US and we had journeyed together to many places and even flew on the plane with me when I return back to Malaysia for good. I was with Abram the day he died,…saw him finally stopped breathing, stroking his head gently while reciting prayers. But I couldn’t get home in time to be there for Jannic when she passed away the very next day after Abram died.

    It crossed my mind if it would have been an act of mercy to euthanize Jannic when I saw she was in so much suffering. I couldn’t and didn’t want to euthanize Jannic. It just wasn’t an option for me. The vet finally gave up talking any sense to me about the option to euthanize Jannic but relented to making Jannic as comfortable as they can and to do their best so Jannic doesn’t have to experience so much pain. Jannic died at the vet, surrounded by the veterinarians and their staff. I was told they all prayed in their different faith for Jannic!

    I had to put down one of my cats that was having kidney problems. I called her mummy she had a litter of three kittens at my house. She was very sweet cat. And It was running through my mind, did the doctors do all they could before deciding to put her down. Animals can become our good friends through many situations. one should not underestimate how close we can be to animals.

    “Angels don’t always come with wings; sometimes they have tails, even if it happens to be a rather short one.”

    Oh yeah… And so do Buddhas too!

    One thing seem to be sure is that Soo has created causes to take a rebirth in circumstances that are even more conducive to practice compassion and care.

  16. Margaretlee on Jan 5, 2012 at 8:33 am

    Seeing a loyal friend slowly dying, be it a human or animal is heart wrenching. I could have probably made the same decision like the owner of Soo as well, who wants to see the pet suffer everyday??

    But having learnt the law of karma and understanding that basically we do not have any right to end the lives of any being, I would do my ulmost to give Soo the best treatment and take care of him until his last breath.

    Another simple way to help our pet to take a good rebirth, is any form of prayers, we can do “Om Mani Peme Hum” every day for 49 days and dedicate the merits to the pet for his swift and good rebirth. The passing of an animal and a human is the same. And Soo is definitely a very special dog, his loyalty to the owner could surpassed that of a human.

    I lit a candle for Soo and may your kind soul take a very good human rebirth!

  17. su_zan on Jan 5, 2012 at 6:34 am

    thank you for sharing the story. I is sad that such decision has to be made. It is not easy to make such decision after spending years with Soo.

    May Soo rest in peace n have a good rebirth.

  18. Mc on Jan 5, 2012 at 3:43 am

    This story certainly tugs at my heart strings. Some of the best moments I have had, a lot of the happy ones, and a fair share of sad moments have been spent with my best friends who just happen to be dogs. They are always there with only one purpose ie to comfort. They have always been there for me. I, on the other have not always been there for them and this post is a timely reminder for me to make time for my furry friends. And good quality time at that.

    I read the post and I can see clearly the image of a man caught in a storm in a wheelchair and his friend deciding to be by his side, not minding some water. Not a lot of human friends would do that. It takes unconditional loyalty, and real friendship. These two sums up love.

    In my kiddish mind, I always feel that animals who come and spread so much joy without making demands should surely just earn an automatic great rebirth. They live with only one purpose…ie to love, to please and to comfort.

    Those friends like Soo, deserve so much. So, so very much.

  19. bengkooi on Jan 5, 2012 at 3:28 am

    Very touching story about Soo. It is never easy when deciding to euthanise a beloved pet, let alone a service dog where the bond between dog and owner would be even stronger from years of reliance and trust. How do you decide when is the right time? How do you know when to give up hope? Is it really better to euthanize than to allow the natural lifespan to be lived out, especially in Buddhist philosophy?

    Anyone have any thoughts to share?

    • Mc on Jan 5, 2012 at 3:58 am

      It always seems “easier” to euthanize the dying and suffering. BUT easier doesn’t make it right. What seems “better” may in a very subtle way, be due to our selfish reasons i.e. it is easier for us because we cannot bear to see them suffer. In the bigger picture, all life must live-out their karma to completion even if that completion is difficult to see and experience. I wonder whether by cutting short a being’s suffering, we could be denying them the opportunity to work out their karma and by so doing, force them to take rebirth into another life where they then also need to work out the rest of the suffering.

      Whether as a man or a dog, if I have to live horribly and suffer terribly before I die, my hope is that all the bad stuff are exhausted then and I can move on to better things.

      The best we can wish for a friend is an excellent rebirth or even better ie totally out of samsara. The second best is that they die without suffering. I prefer my friends to have the best.

    To normal reader, the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan draw parallel to Nikola Tesla, who is the unmasked genius behind invention/creation that changed the work. Yet, Srinivasa Ramanujan’s success has a mystical connotation. The achievements of Srinivasa Ramanujan, through self-taught mastery of mathematics was attributed to mystical messages received from the Hindu Goddess Namagiri. In Srinivasa’s own words “… an equation for me has no meaning, unless it expresses a thought of God.” The Hindu goddess Namagiri or Namakkal, is a form of Mahalakshmi, the Hindu goddess of fortune, wealth and both secular and spiritual prosperity. She is well-known for appearing in the dreams of her devotees to grant advice and blessings. She would appeared in the dreams of Srinivasa, where there were drops or oceans of flowing blood, where he would see mathematical formulas sent to him by Namagiri. Upon waking he would write these down as complete formulas or as inspiration for formulas he would compose later. Srinivasa Ramanujan was a very religious man and he held his held his religious beliefs deeply, such as strict vegetarian vows. Thank you Pastor Niral for this story.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article on 12 Law of Karma very simple and clear for us to understand.I do believe for every action,there’s a reaction.its the cause and effect theory. The consequences will come.Theres so many types of karma explain in this article.It a very good reminder and advice for us to be always kind,caring and compassion to all sentient beings. And forth most always be mindful for whatever we do. I will take some time to understand and improve to change for the better and make a difference in my life.I will try my best.
    Thanks Rinpoche .with folded hands.

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this inspiring experience in a very nice comic. I have learned that :

    1) Have determination and believe in our Guru – Adeline believe in Rinpoche and do according to his instruction. Even though the treatment period is not easy but she did not give up and continue.

    2) Guru will always ask his students to practise dharma as a form to overcome the obstacles. Sometimes we may not understand the whole intention but if we practise Guru Devotion then we will follow the instruction fully.

    3) Doing dharma work such as volunteering in temple, building Buddha statue, offering to temple and sangha can help purify our karma.

    Animal is just like human beings, have feeling and will also feel sad and scared in such situation. Hence we must respect all living beings. Not to abuse and put them in such situation.

    I feel that the story of Kuchisake Onna is a classic example of someone who does not apply dharma knowledge in her life. She would not be unfaithful towards her husband or hold on to vengeful feelings for so long if she had known Buddha Dharma. We must be compassionate towards being like her as she must be suffering unspeakable torment. She has no way out and every action that she does tantamount to very negative karma for her. May her suffering ends and she takes rebirth where she can learn Buddha Dharma. Thank you Vinnie for sharing her story with us.

    Thank you to all who participated in this combined effort to clean Chamang Road in Bentong, it is heartening to know that all were truly focused on this task of making Bentong a more cleaner town.
    These auspicious events were attended by the head of the local municipal council and also the forestry department speaks volumes of the recognition that they have on Kechara. The contribution by the local contractors providing their machineries for the cleanup must also be congratulated for their kind thoughts and efforts.
    This humbleness shown by the respective local government departments, contractors and Kecharians working in unison to do the cleanup is something Kecharians can be proud of and hopefully we pray for many more wonderful happenings in the near future. This personal association and blending with the local authorities and the Bentong residents will make it easier for us to introduce Tibetan Buddhism to them.

    2016年9月18日对多杰雄登修持者可以被称为一个特别的日子,因为达赖尊者在法国斯特拉斯堡的泽尼斯中心,对公众发表说明如果有些人想要修持多杰雄登,他们是可以的。达赖尊者还告诉大众说,目前的甘丹寺和色拉寺邻近寺院的僧人都有在跟随这项修持。达赖尊者所提出这几个重点,简直是个值得令人兴奋与开心的事情。因为,这20年以来,雄登修持人仿佛活在一个没有宗教自由的国家里,甚至还被他人歧视、隔离、欺压等等,每天必须过着恐惧与痛苦的日子。

    直到这一天的来临,9月18日,多杰雄登修持者就如见到曙光一样,得到达赖尊者所告知说我们是可以修多杰雄登护法。相信不久的将来,慢慢的得到人们了解与接受此修持法。无论如何,就如上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的建议,我们必须有和平的心与站稳本身的立场,甚至要继续地弘扬多杰雄登的传承与祂修持法所带给众生的利益。

    在此祈望,会有更多人明白与了解多杰雄登的来龙去脉的真相。了解祂所带来的利益而不是伤害。而至于不明白实情真相的人,不要因为信仰的差异而互相排挤或互相批评。如果长久下去,要达到人与人和谐相处的目标就会遥遥无期。

    I just cannot comprehend the complexities of the human mind on how they would spin and turn news into their own fantasies and trying to outshine the others. Peace seems to have been evading us homo sapiens for as long as I can remember.
    Why is it that we must fight, argue, antagonize, criticize, hate, or insult another and what are the reasons for all these? It has always never fail to amaze me on the question on what do one hope to achieve or gets out of all these. My analogy is that it is just to satisfy the thirsty, corrupted, twisted evil mind and after having achieved and hurt another person and then what? Is it going to make you wiser, better or a cleverer person? I would assume it to be a definite “No” perhaps the good feeling may linger on for a while but rest assured it is never lasting and this satisfaction would dissipates with time. All these are transient thoughts generated by one and no matter how much food we feed to this evil monkey mind it can never be appeased.
    Meditation is an antidote to all these and it is within our reach therefore like what my Guru says it is timely that we ‘Give Peace A Chance’ and try to explore the other side of our mind through meditation. Perhaps one may be surprised by the result of this exploring.

    Good reminder and advice for us .To remind us of loving and caring all sentient beings and always be mindful.Very common for birds to fly straight into our windows that will cause them injuries to their feathers.Hence we must protect them in away ,by severals methods by adjusting our windows as suggested by Rinpoche .
    At least it could reduce the risk and injury .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    These pictures are really lovely. It reminds us that animals are living beings that have feeling, love and care for their little ones too. Just like us human, whom parent’s love is infinity towards their children.

    So please respect their existence and do not harm them.

    Very weird and really strange addictions…..cannot imagine its true after reading these strange individual addictions .they did it out of curiosity ,a sense of loneliness ,depression. and so forth. Whatever their action is, need to be treated as long term might ruin their lives.
    Do hope they have will power and determination to cut off their strange addictions, to carry on with their daily life.They have always a choice to do what they have and,choose what to do to be on the right track in life.

    尊贵的达赖尊者亲口表示大家可以选择修持雄登护法法门, 还提议了两大修持多杰雄登法门的寺院 : Shar Gaden寺和Serpom寺 !
    达赖尊者还表示, 多杰雄登不会影响和减短祂的寿命, 那么无形中就表示一样尊贵达赖尊者地位高成就的高僧也不会受到雄登的影响。那么, 也就是说, 在尊贵达赖尊者和其他高僧的曼达拉里的弟子也不受影响了。那么总结来说, 雄登护法是不会伤害反而会护持佛法成长 !

    因为这消息出来以後, 那一群专破坏, 欺负, 歧视持修雄登的人就不会那么明目张胆的出来破坏, 雄登持修者就有安乐的环境下生活 !

    这是一个好的转变, 也是一个大跨越的好消息 !��

    也非常感恩慈悲尊贵的达赖尊者公佈这讯息 ! ��

    最重要的就是将来的日子里, 佛法得以利益更多的人 !

    Glad to know that scientists have recently discovered that the ozone hole is starting to heal.Is a great encouragement for us to keep up the good work. It would take some time for fixing other environment problems with every one of us and international cooperation. Thats the reason many devoted Buddhists live their lives with discipline and awareness, cultivating the attitude of doing no harm to the environment.In the Buddhist teachings, every action we take creates a chain of reactions as said by Rinpoche.That is very true.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

This is powerful and true. When someone disappoints you so many times, it cannot be an accident anymore. You need to have compassion for them to not do more negative karma and not allow it anymore and we need need to have compassion for ourselves too and not let them hurt us again.. Tsem Rinpoche

This is the road that leads to my house in the mountains. I have a small house and a lake nearby the house and I live there on vegan foods with my pets-Mumu loves running around the meadows. I have a large outdoor Vajra Yogini statue made of stone and we make offerings of juniper leaves burned to her daily as sang. I love living in the mountains away from the senseless repeating of actions in urban life. Urban life with its various pollutions do not connect us to who we are inside. I love this walking path to my retreat home where I will live for the rest of my life and on the way home, I pluck some flowers for my shrine to offer to the Buddha...thank you for allowing me to live here.

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?
    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.
