Media focuses on manufactured controversy on History Channel’s ‘The Bible’, ignores powerful message and meaning

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Over the weekend, Glenn tweeted out that Mehdi Ouazanni, the actor who plays Satan in History Channel’s The Bible, happened to look a little like President Obama once he was in full make-up. Of course, the media latched onto the tweet and has used it to put a controversial and negative spin on the amazing new television series. But why have they ignored the series up until now? Glenn shared a personal story on radio this morning about how the show has helped his family, how it could help others, and shamed the media’s coverage of the breakout show.

“I want to talk to you about something deeply personal here but also related to the series The Bible.  Friday I’m ahead on the series of The Bible because I was asked to review it and we haven’t had a chance to watch all of it and we finished it last Sunday and it still I think has two more weeks to go on the History Channel.  And on Friday I tweeted, I don’t even know when it was.  I think it was like 11:00 at night, I think, but we had watched The Bible series and I had tweeted something I thought was a funny comment and I said, ‘You have to watch The Bible this weekend because you won’t believe how much the devil looks like Barack Obama.’”

“If you look, if you look at this thing, you just, you can’t deny.  Now, did they go out and they try to find an actor to look like him?  No.  Did he, did he try to make it look ‑‑ no, he didn’t.”

But rather than notice the obvious physical similarities, laugh, and move on with their lives – several in the media decided to take Glenn’s tweet and use it to create controversy around The Bible and its producers.

“Here’s what’s really happening with this. First of all, the networks didn’t want to take Mark Burnett’s show. They didn’t want to take it. They didn’t want to run a series that was the number one show in all of television on the History Channel. It had higher ratings than American Idol. They are so out of touch with you, the American people; or they have such an agenda that they will flush down ratings and connect with actual people for their agenda or because they’re clueless. You decide which is which.”

“Then when it was picked up by the History Channel, then what happens? Then nobody wants to do interviews with these guys.”

“Here’s Mark Burnett, one of the ‑‑ he’s got five, count them, five nights where his shows are number one on different networks. He has five nights in a row, currently! The guy is the biggest name in television and they don’t want to do an interview with him on this Bible thing that you’re doing, you freak. So they ignore him. They don’t pick it up. Then they ignore him. Then it becomes number one and they just do a quick hit on it and move on.”

“And then it fades into oblivion. The ratings still hold. Nobody says a word. And then Friday I make an offhanded remark on Twitter and now the media is in an absolute firestorm.”

“Now here, here is this media so completely out of control that for their own agenda of, I think believe it or not, I think to try to teach Mark Burnett a lesson: Don’t you do anything like this ever again because we’ll ignore you and then we’ll smear you.”

Sadly, the power of The Bible to inspire hope and love through its message has been ignored amid all the controversy. And rather than spend his time attacking the “journalists” who have decided to use his tweet to attack The Bible series, it’s producers, or himself, Glenn decided to share a story that demonstrates why people need to be watching the show.

“On Sunday night we watched the last episode of The Bible. This is the crucifixion and the resurrection.”

“If you’re a long‑time listener of this program, you know that we have been on the verge of losing our dog. Quite honestly it has been a battle where I have felt like the bad guy because my family has not been able to let go and I have been watching my dog… suffer. And I have stood quietly trying to ask, ‘Please, family, let’s let him go.’ My son and I are going to dig his grave on Friday, and Saturday at noon at our home, we’re going to put him to sleep. Sunday we decided to do it, and my son, who is 8, took it exceptionally hard on Sunday. I think the reality truly set in, and we as a family cried all Sunday afternoon and all Sunday night. And we were all down on the floor.”

“Last night we were on the kitchen floor sitting right by his spot where he always sits when we eat dinner and read our scripture. And we all got down on the floor and we read Psalms – not to him but to us. My son was almost inconsolable on Sunday.”

“And we started to watch The Bible, the Mark Burnett show. And it showed the crucifixion and it showed the death. my wife and I were with the kids and we knew what was coming and we knew that it would be good. And my son got off the bed at one point and went down onto a floor where he sat with Victor and he laid on him and sobbed, and petted him.”

“But in the point of the movie where Christ rises and there is eternal life, Raphe turned his head to the television and we began to talk about how we’ll see Victor again and how death is just temporary separation.”

“There are people and forces in this world that don’t want you to believe that. There are people and forces of this world that don’t believe it themselves. They don’t understand the peaceful message. They don’t understand the comfort. They don’t understand the meaning of that one man’s life. Everything to them needs to be turned into some political debate. Because of ratings, everything needs to be divisive. Because of what they believe and because they will not tolerate, they do not believe in freedom of speech, they do not believe in the individual choice, they do not believe in the true message of Jesus, they believe in collective salvation, that somehow or another we all have to save everybody, where we are truly powerless. They will look for anything, anything at all, to divide us, to isolate, to teach a lesson to Mr. Burnett and Roma Downey, ‘You are in a space, that you are not welcome and we will not welcome you in that space. We will ignore you or if need be, we will ridicule you. We will smear you, but we will not talk about the amazing power of a movie that when I was a kid networks would have begged to air.’”

“Because I think maybe, just maybe back then there were a few more people that understood because they had actually seen it in their own lives, the power, of the story of redemption, forgiveness, and eternal life.”

“I don’t know what you have going on in your life. It’s been a hard year for us. The last 12 or 18 months have been extraordinarily difficult. And I’m not the only man who has struggled with the end days of his best friend, nor will I be the last, nor will this be the last time that I struggle with this decision. But we found peace. Even though we have hard work ahead of us in the next few days, we know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”

“A personal note: I thank Mark Burnett and Roma Downey for their courage, for their inspiration, for their willingness. I wrote to them yesterday, and I’ll say it publicly: I apologize for being so foolish to think that one can still joke today. Please don’t be lost in the message of the media. If you haven’t watched The Bible yet, this is the most important episode, and it’s coming up Sunday. A vision, a gift that I haven’t seen ever before on television.”

    Obama, like Satan, uses the Scripture wrongly to tempt people. I refer to Satan’s tempting Jesus in  the 40 days of wilderness using scripture.  Satan offers what he claims is freedom but is a prison trap.

    The media do not want to have their god-king, messiah, savior insulted in the least, less his deeds of darkness be brought to light. The truth of the bible and the show of it is being kept silent willingly…

    God will not be denied, the truth, including that of those who dared to suppress it, will come out in the end.

    Glenn, grow up man. Put your high emotional valence to work on the real issues that divide us. Stop crying in front of your kids about your dog and start crying with them about all the cruel and mean things you say every day. Don’t just act out and call your hate a joke. Change man, change. Redemption Glenn, grab it and cut loose the haters you serve.

    The only gripes I have in “The Bible” are that they went from Abraham’s near sacrifice of Isaac right to Moses with a single sentence or two regarding the famine that Joseph oversaw and the reunion of him with his brothers and father.  A very important Genesis story, totally ignored.

    Oh well.

    Glenn says: 
    “Everything to them needs to be turned into some political debate.”

    Yet it was Glenn himself who sent out the tweet saying that the devil in the show looked like the president. 

    He couldn’t just enjoy the show for what it is…he had to throw a little political jab in there…and now he’s complaining that others are doing the same. Typical Beck.

    You’re an wrong to bring Buddhism into your squabble. Buddhism doesn’t argue about a soul being saved or lost – a soul, such as a Buddhist understands it, is eternal and part of everything. No damnation. No salvation.

  • Anonymous

    “Liberals love to attack Christianity. They never attack Muslim or Buddhist why is that?”

    Christianity gets attacked because it is HERE.
    America is a Christian nation. Our laws against gay marriage, abortion, etc tend to come from the Christian Right. It is the Christians who for so long have dominated our laws, cultural norms, etc… thus, Christians are seen as the oppressors. 

    Realistically, Islam is the greater threat to freedom and mankind. If we see all religions as viruses then Christianity is merely a cold, but Islam is the Ebola Virus, the Bubonic Plague… 
    But unless Americans feel more of a direct impact on their daily lives from Islam, they’re not likely to rail against it. Islam is still regarded as something that’s “over there.” Meanwhile, Christianity is HERE.

    I noticed the similarity as well. In fact it struck me as such a resemblance that I admit that I was not able to really focus on the rest of the episode because of was busy trying to figure out if it was deliberate or just a coincidence.  I realize now that I was deceived. Perhaps by by my own perceptions or perhaps by the Deceiver but either way I was deceived. The truth is that it doesn’t matter of the Satan actor looked like Obama or Bush, or any one else. Satan will be what each of us thinks we need to see. Perhaps some good may come of this. Perhaps with the media attention more people will tune in and watch the greatest story the world has ever know and perhaps some of them will see the truth in it.

  • Anonymous

     There is nothing wrong with mentioning this. He did not say that Obama is Satan, only that the actor looked like Obama and most people noticed the same thing. Would you rather Glenn Beck not speak out lest he offend? What about yourself. Would you stop speaking if it offended someone?

    But why then have they not said a thing about this program for 4 weeks. Their re-action was that of predators laying in wait for anything, anything they can kill. If it would have been one reporter or even one network OK, but ALL of them including the social networks? Set up.

  • Anonymous

     I disagree. He simply said that the character looked like Obama, which  he did. Had he said this Satan looks like Obama and then talked about Obamas policies then he would have interjected politics. But he did not. He simply pointed out a thing that many people noticed. And I agree with Tobias in his response. The media ignored this until someone said something they could criticize. It was in fact the media who politicized this.

    Here is why I think the Media has been lying wait. The Media has been giddy over the recent studies that show a decline in religion in America. And yet despite that decline this traditional biblical story complete with divine miracles is doing tremendously well. People want to to tune it and watch. But to the Liberal media this is dangerous. It means that maybe those non-religious people are not as secular as was thought, perhaps they do have religion or want to find it, or at least experience some degree of it. This can not be tolderated by the media that wants to push a secular, socialist agenda. If you want to see an example just look at the way the media covered religion in Soviet era Russia.

    Glen, I am hurting for you and your family as you go through this hard time.  Victor is such an importnat part of your family, and it is hard to let him go, or to see him suffer.  We are experiencing a similar situation, our 9 year-old Lab mix, sadie, has a tumor and has gone blind.  We do not know enough about the tumor, because it is over 2500 to get an MRI, so we are praying that we can identify when she begins to suffer.  It is never easy, and I am glad that you used The Bible as a learning tool for your children.  May God hold Victor in His hands, and guide you all and ease the pain in your hearts.

  • Sara Skywalker

    It is truly difficult to let go of a beloved pet.  They are our family members.  I do feel we are blessed in that we can end their suffering, but it is still terribly difficult.  I believe I will see all the pets I have had to make that awful decision with, and I believe every one of them knew it was their time.  We are so lucky to have the time we do have with our animals.  They are truly God’s gifts to us.

    They bring smiles to our faces, tears to our eyes, and sometimes both at the same time. Losing a loved one is devastating, but we have all been left with a special gift – our memories. They are often the only things we have left after that special person or pet is gone. Though at times they may be painful to think about, with them, our loved ones remain a part of us forever.

    I am heartbroken for your family.  A animal isn’t just a pet they are apart of your family.  It gets harder and harder lose our animals.  They never ask much of you, just a some love and food/water.  But they are always there when we need them.  I have a student on my school bus and on New Years Day they lost theire beloved Baxter.  I saw this animal every morning and afternoon for 7 years.  Even though he wasn’t mine, I was heart broken.  Animals are so much better then people.  Unconditional love.  I am truly sorry for your lose.

    Oh, Glenn … I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved dog, Victor. My husband and I went through this several years ago with our Reno the rottweiler. He was 12 yrs old and in poor health, too. It was very hard for me, because I’ve never experienced losing a family pet. I realized it’s not much different than losing a human family member.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this sad time. Rest in peace, Victor!

    I was listening on the radio when you told about losing Victor.  Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.  You’ve lost a family member and it tears at your heart!  If you haven’t heard the story about The Rainbow Bridge and how our pets cross over it, please Google it as it will give you and your family some peace.  You will see Victory again running and playing as if he were a young pup!  I’ve lost many much loved pets over the years and it never, never gets any easier!  I also thank you for your comments on the documentary, The Bible.  Right on, Glenn!  I agree with everything you said!  Take care.

    So So sorry about your beautiful boy, Victor!  We lost our beloved German Shepherd, Angel, about 2 years ago now and we also had to put her down.  So heartbreaking!   We now have a police K9 that is getting up in years and may have to retire soon.  He is a beautiful boy and has served faithfully and bravely.  He will be heartbroken when he can’t leave to go to work every day with his Daddy.  They become such an integral part of the family and part of our lives .  Sending thoughts and prayers from our family to yours as you go through this difficult time.

Through death grows beauty that lasts forever in your heart. Stay strong on the tough days ahead.

    Glenn and Family….I dedicate “A Dog’s Plea” to you:
    Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me. 
    Do not break my spirit with a stick, for although I should lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will quickly teach me the things you would have me learn. 
    Speak to me often, for your voice is the world’s sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps falls upon my waiting ear. 
    Please take me inside when it is cold and wet, for I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements. I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth. Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. 
    Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger. 
    And, my friend, when I am very old, and I no longer enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I am not having any fun. Please see that my trusting life is taken gently. I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands.

    I wonder almost everyday “How did it happen?”  Not just that media is corrupt and in the tank for the left, but when did the soul go out of our society?  Maybe that is too harsh.  Maybe the emptiness is mostly in the east and west coast states.  I pray there are enough good people in the center to rise up in support of good, morality, traditional values; because the other road is leading us to a very bad place.

    Glenn and Family,  My husband and I have you in our thoughts and prayers as we had to put our precious little doxie Rusty to sleep on Feb. 25th.  Was the hardest thing we have ever had to do but the only humane thing to do.  We cried for days and still do off and on each day.  It took us from last year in Sept. untill a week before the 25th. to finally make the decision as we just could not give him up.  He is in heaven now and in my prayers last night I told him to watch out for Victor as he will be the new kid on the block.

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your dog, Victor.  I have had to let too many go and know the intense grief and pain too well.  They truly are man’s best friend, loyal to the end.  No matter how bad a day we have, we walk through the door and there they are, thrilled to see us.  They forgive us for being human.  They console us through our sad times.  And celebrate with us in our good times.  Death is a temporary separation.  Just because we can’t see them does not mean they aren’t still there, watching over us as always.  We will be greeted at the end of our earthly journeys by several past companions, tails wagging, thrilled to see us again.

    My heart aches for you and your family, Glenn. Saying ‘good-bye’ to a member of your family (to me that is what a pet REALLY is) is never easy. As much as it hurts and I know the tears will fall, how much more amazing has your life been because of having that wonderful dog in the family? I would rather feel the loss of losing something I love than to have never had a chance to love them in the first place. God Bless you and yours. Give your kids a hug from me. I am a momma of three so I know hugs can heal.

    Just this side of heaven is a place
    called Rainbow Bridge.
    When an animal dies that has been especially
    close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows
    and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and
    comfortable.
    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to
    health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
    just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The
    animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss
    someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
    They all run
    and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the
    distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins
    to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster
    and faster.
    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend
    finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
    The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head,
    and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from
    your life but never absent from your heart.
    Then you cross Rainbow
    Bridge together….

    You know why Christianity is under attack and no other religion? Because Satan already owns them…they are his pets. Christianity is attacked because it is based on the truth of the Word of God and, well, Satan just can’t have the truth in the way so we, as Christians, are his target.

    Glenn, I can relate FAR to well to your situation with Victor.  I had to say goodbye to 2 of my four legged family members within 3 weeks of each other last fall.  I had just lost my job prior and that was much easier to deal with than losing 2 family members, one that had been a member of my family for almost 18 years and one that we rescued on the side of the road when he was hit by a car as a pup and kept him for the next 13 years.  I was absolutely heart broken and still am to this day. Escher, the one we rescued, was a German Shepherd mix and he looked very much like Victor and seeing your pics takes me right back to the day I had to put him to sleep and dig his grave.  He had gotten so weak he couldn’t stand up to eat and even though his hurting ended, mine just started.  I definitely will continue to pray for you and your family and pray that you find comfort in the memories you have of him.

    Glenn, Prayers, and sorrow for your families loss of your beloved Victor.  I know how hard it is to lose a pet.  We’ve been there many times in our lives, and never easy.  They can never be replaced, but somehow I think God sends new “friends” to love when we aren’t even looking to  send another pet that needs us.  Your Victor was hurting and now he’s pain free to run in  heaven above till you all meet again.  

     We all need to see this  wonderful Bible series, and how parallel it was back then, and now, with wealth and power, struggles for the average man/woman, and believing in God, blind faith that delivers us all from the evils of the world.  Just seeing the coming attractions brought tears.  It was also a remembrance of growing up in a time where every year the prime stations put on Christ’s story.  He didn’t have to compete with American Idol, and even now beat them. ;)

    It was a hard year for us too, losing a mother, uncle and  husband’s step-mother in a few short months of each other.  But knowing they are all in a better place, and no longer in pain is a blessing.

    God’s Blessings for all you do to keep us informed.   I learned more History from you than I ever did in school..Thanks for that.

    Glen, my heart goes out to you and your family. Thanks for making me cry, thinking of the big black ball of love who has been laid beneath the forsythia in our backyard for six years now. Pet or dog. Neither is a big enough word for these companions who teach us so much about friendship and loyalty and love and yes, grief, because they do go before us. And if they do not go to a place divine and full of sunny fields, I don’t want to know.

    So, so sorry Glenn, about Victor. I’m praying for you and your family at this very difficult time. I’m glad he was able to be with you all and a proud member of the Beck family. YOU should be proud, Glenn, for all you have done – and are still trying to do – despite the viciousness always aimed at you, your family and all that you stand for. Hang in there. And I do believe “The Bible” will do just fine, no matter what those idiots say. There are plenty of us out here who still believe in God and Jesus, and are not as gullible as those in power like to think we are. We’ll all reap what we’ve sown in the end. Believe me, I’d rather be standing with you than THOSE guys when that time comes!

    Glenn,
    Though the decision was hard your son will know the kind of man you are because of it, not letting a pet an adopted member of one’ family to suffer a long and painful death is merciful your son also learned a lesson all of us must face in life and his knowing grief and getting through it with a loved pet I believe prepare one for the harder lessons long down the road…….
    .
    My wife and I are cat people and she had a habit of collecting them…. we first had two and then one day she calls from work asking if she could bring home another cat… it was a rescue.. a co-worker who lived in a trailer park had a young kitty that had been thrown out in the dead of winter I said yes and soon discovered our young adoptee was pregnant…. she had 5 kittens we ended up keeping two and adopting out three… so we now we had five…… one day at church we were approached by a family who said “we heard you like cats” yes we ended up with number six…..now I began to have visions of growing old together and being one of those old couples you see on the nightly news who’s house was raided by animal control and were found to have 100 cats…… that night I told my Carol that if she found another cat she had to have she had to give up one of the one’s we had and she had to make the choice…… from that time on we did rescue a few more kitties but each time we had someone willing to adopt them before hand.. in 2009 when we found out my Carol was terminal with cancer she and her mother wanted me after Carol passed on to have the cat’s adopted out… I told her no I wouldn’t do it,  I wasn’t going to come home and rattle around in an empty house….. a year later when I came home one night I found the oldest cat curled up in my office chair.. it had died in it’s sleep…. A month later I found the second oldest curled up in my office chair…. It too had died in it’s sleep… both went when I wasn’t home both in my chair…. I guess they found some comfort from the smell of the chair where I always sat….. So two of our kitties are now with my Carol and I have four to keep me company….  I just hope when we meet again that my Carol hasn’t collected up 100 kitties…. I know it might seem like heaven to her…… but let’s keep it at six……
    .
    No matter how they try to smear the truth, God’s truth will always prosper in that we can have faith….

Thank you for loving him, and just remember  he was Gods dog first and he needs another faithful friend up there with him. God bless you for ALL you do. and peace at this horrible time of loss.

    I lost my little friend in December.  It is only the belief that she is in Heaven that kept me going. I know that sounds strange, but at 52, I have no wife or kids and my house is empty, except for the little dog that adored me and followed my every single step.  Even sick, she would nudge her bed over in-front of the glass door to wait for my return.  12 years is a long time, but not long enough, but she suffered so much, her body finally gave out and I had to have her put down.  I think it was the hardest thing I have ever done.  Believe your dog is waiting for you.  My priest said, he has no doubt that what loves us and we love in return, will be in Heaven waiting for us.  Thank you to the Producers of the Bible, it’s a great show.  Bless you all.

    I am so sorry for having to lose your pet.  I have to make that decision soon with my dog that I’ve had for 14 years.  They are such a part of your family.  
     I will pray for you and your family for healing. It will come, but it will take quite awhile.  Take your time to grieve.
    Some people have told me that pets don’t go to heaven.  I know they do.  God is love.  How can He not love his creation. And in Genesis, it states animals were given the breath of life.  They bleed like Jesus did.  They were the sacrific until Jesus gave His life for us.  And when Jesus comes back again, it says in Revelation He will be riding on a horse.
    God bless you and your family, as God holds you in His arms during your grief.

    Oh boy, this one hits home especially hard for me.  I lost the puppy love of my life on January 2.  I had to give peace to the sweetest little labrador I’ve ever known; my sweet Macie.  For 14 years, she had given so much to me – much that I still haven’t even recognized yet- and she asked for so little in return.  Truly, a creature of God’s creation that our beloved pets love us more than they know to love themselves.  
    My husband and I held her as the vet gave her the sleep that my cancer stricken baby so desperately needed.  I sobbed as I’ve never sobbed before.  And, so did my husband – and very unexpectedly.  He shared my pain.  And I begged God for comfort in those last moments…But, an amazing and beautiful thing happened, and i don’t expect anyone to understand; but I FELT her ascend.  I FELT the hairs on my head raise as she was lifted by God and He cradled her into his arms.  Her energy, her SOUL lifted from her body and I actually felt it.  I realize now that that very feeling was God’s comfort to me.  I now realize that my comfort has come from God comforting her.In her corner, the place where she peacefully passed, we have dedicated a Bible, ever open to Psalm 23, a little tea-light holder, and a picture of my old girl, gray muzzle and happy smile, knowing that are parting is brief.  I don’t believe God would give us a creature of His creation and not reunite us everlasting life.  

    My heart is still broken, but I do not despair in my grief.  I am comforted every day by God’s words. 

    Glenn, I will pray for you and your family; may God bring you comfort and peace as you mourn the loss of your beloved Victor.  Always remember, he’s not in a better place, he’s in the BEST place now.

We now have two dogs that God sent to us who has helped us more than words can say.He knows just what we need at all times.   Praise God!!!!

    My dog who used to lay
    His gentle head upon my knee
    And shared his silent thoughts with me
    . He’ll come no longer to my callRetrieve no more his favorite ball A voice far greater than my own Has called him to his golden throne. .Although my eyes are filled with tears I thank him for the happy years He let him spend down here with me And for his love and loyalty. .When it is time for me to go And join him there, this much I knowI shall not fear the transient dark For he will greet me with a bark.

    I am one of those who believes I will see my beloved pet(s) again.  What a reunion that is going to be! From dogs and cats from my childhood to my most recent loss of a very special part Siamese (if you please) cat.  He thought he was a dog. He liked to play ball and even retrieve it and bring it back to me.  He was the joy of my life for 14 yrs.  God bless you and your family and prayers for your loss.

    Glenn I am truely sorry for you loss.  I lost my precious Mini Schnauzer Magoo, he was mine and my husbands child.  He would go with David for hikes in the woods and car rides.  When he wanted attention he would put his head silently in you lap and look up at you as if to say, I am here love me.  He would pat his part of the bed down every night and snuggle up with us.  When he died it was if we had lost out child.  Not one person in our neighborhood was absent at our home when he died because he became the neighborhoods dog as well.  I understand the loss. But Glenn I am like you I know I will see my Magoo again, as well as you will see your Victor.  That is our hope in this life, that to live and reign with Jesus in heaven is our goal and I know in my heart of hearts our beloved pets will be there also.  Praying for your comfort.  God Bless your and your family and keep up the good work.  Love you and praying for you.

    Remember Who Jesus is – we are NOT Jesus or God – He is Sovereign, He is Holy, He is God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.  If you have repented of your sins, if you believe that JESUS is the Son of God, He lived, died for your sins, He is risen from the dead, He sits on the right hand of God the Father —He will come to judge the quick and the dead,  if you believe that, YOU ARE SAVED!  The Apostles’ Creed covers it for all of us who are Christians.  Amen and Amen!!!

    I had to put down a little dog some time ago.  My husband went in with the dog while the vet administered the drugs.  I couldn’t bear it.  I sat in the lobby and sobbed.  The receptionist told me that she saw my dog and she looked like she’d been loved very much and well taken care of.  She said you’d be surprised the at condition of some dogs come in here.  She continued on to tell me that I should be happy that we gave our dogs such a good home for as long as we could.  Her words made me feel much better, so much so that we got another dog by the end of the week.  Another dog; another good life!!

    Dearest Beck family.  My heart is sad for you, over my lifetime I too, have lost many good dogs.  It is so incredibly heartbreaking.  Our pets,  too, are a part of our family, and they are so pure, loving us unconditionally like they do.  Tell Victor that it’s O.K. to go.  He know’s its time and he loves you all.  He doesn’t want to see you all upset.    I believe that our pets wait for us in heaven.  My family have dogs, cats and horses waiting to greet us, along with other family members.  God Bless you Glen.  I cried with you.., sending love and lots of hugs.

    Over the years, my family has owned six German Shepherds.  When we lived in a big home with a lot of land, we kept two at a time.  They were all “work” dogs as opposed to the Americanized dogs.  Even with guarantees to be free from Dysplasia (hip problems) it can often happen anyway.  It goes with the breed.  We, too, had to put down one of our dogs, Liza.  It was a very sad experience.  I know fist hand what Glenn and his family are going through.  It is good to have a strong faith to see you through something this hard.  Fortunately, now days there is a cure for Dysplasia but it is expensive.  We all love our pets, regardless of breed and to many they are very much a part of the family.  I am thankful for the Bible series and for Glenn Beck.

    One more note:  Satan, as I understand my Bible, was a creature of great beauty.  Perfect in almost every way.  So, I think he should have been portrayed as beautiful (on the outside) as is sometimes the case with those who appear wonderful and are in reality awful.  Rather than seeing Obama, I turned to my wife and asked her why she thought the producers of the show wanted Satan to look like The Emperor from Star Wars?

    Please know that I am feeling the sadness and sorrow over you’re losing Victor.  Our animals are family and it is such a loss when we lose them.  We’ve had to put down three dogs and a cat.  It took my husband eight years to talk me into getting another dog because I just cannot handle losing them – I just borrowed our granddogs and our friend’s dogs – but then I weakened  and now have three more!  Don’t know if it will help your son but I look at our being able to put animals to sleep when the time comes as a great blessing because we can be with them until the very end, comforting them.  In the wild, it’s not that way.

    Dear Glenn and Beck  family, the picture of you lying on the floor by Victor says it all. He is a beautiful animal and in this picture is really enjoying this time with you. We had to put our Dixie to sleep almost a month ago. It was one of the hardest things but we could not see her suffer any more. She was the most sweetest and beautiful creatures I have ever known. My boyfriend was out of town when this happened so he had me put the phone near her where she was laying down and he told her goodbye and just talked to her. It was the sweetest phone conversation I ever heard but at the same time so sad. 

    Prayers to you and your family during this time. He will not be alone in heaven, I know Dixie our yellow lab will be there to welcome her. 

    Take care Glenn and Family

    Glenn, I have suffered through the devastation of having to put a beloved dog to sleep, and it was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do in my life. 

    This constant companion, this loving friend, can no longer carry on. My dog of 14 years had an enlarged heart, and it was painful to watch her pant for breath. When she had been at the vet and I was advised it was either a lifetime of expensive medication with no shrinking of the heart, or putting her to rest, I had to do what was best for us all. 

    I wish that dogs were more like horses, and live for decades. But I know that life comes from God, and we will all see each other again some day. 

    May God be with you, your son, and your family in this time of mourning.

    Hello my friend, Glenn, i heard your story of having to put your beloved dog down last weekend. we too are facing that decision. our oldest dog of 14 yrs, is in real bad shape and we need to have him put down. I know I will see him again in heaven. People who have written their stories of going to heaven and then coming back, say that their pets were there. THEY ARE WAITING FOR US TO GET THERE. she said they sit on our porch, waiting for us to come HOME! GLENN I TOTALLY BELIEVE WE WILL SEE OUR SPECIAL GOD GIVEN PETS IN HEAVEN. i am trying to convince my husband that it is time to let Gussy go home. WE WILL SEE HIM AGAIN!!!!! i know how my husband will take it, like he did the last time. i have never seen a man cry like that! He really missed our Pippo. but he was so sick and we must always consider them first….not our selfish wish to keep them around. so i know what you are feeling as we are so close to it ourselves. you will get a tiny bit better each week. it is painful and lonely. but let me say. it is not a bad choice to get another one. we did that 2 weeks after we put Pippo down and it sure healed the wounds faster. not instantly, but it made it so much easier. and the new one helped our Gussy to get over the grieving of Pippo. Max helped us all get over it.
    so, know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you! and the actor does look like Obama! saw it on facebook last night as i fell asleep when it was on Sunday! you have to not have seen Obama to not think he looked like him. wow!

I can completely relate with the depth of the void that is felt.  We can take comfort that one day we will see those we have loved and lost in this life.

    Losing a family pet is so very hard–I’m going through it right now, having lost the light of our lives 8 days ago after fighting for his life for a year; and we lost a foal we had planned for, and dreamed about for two years, the day before our beloved dog was put to rest. I’m inconsolable; bereft, and heartbroken, as is my spouse. I completely understand your emotional grief and connection to The Bible series. God Bless.

    I can really relate to your emotional feelings about having to make that agonizing decision about your beloved family member Victor. I will be crossing the very same territory that you have already crossed…too soon, I fear. I can only hope that we do not have to make that decision and he passed naturally without pain or suffering. You probably won’t read this but please know that out thoughts and prayers are with you in this extremely tough time. i believe that our loved ones ( including pets ) will be on the other side with licks waiting for us to show up and be together again.

    Mr. Beck….I am so very sorry about Victor…I lost my dog Harry, also a German Shepherd (he looked ALOT like Victor!) almost a year ago and reading this has brought back the sadness…not that it has really gone away. I know exactally what you are going through. I often worry that we let Harry suffer a little longer than we should have, but we just couldn’t let go. It was just too hard. We had every intention of burying Harry in our backyard, however his ashes are still on the fireplace in the family room next to where he always liked to sleep. It gives us comfort somehow to know he’s still with us here in the house. You and Victor and your whole family will be in my prayers.Big hugs to all of you and to Victor… God Bless. :(

    Thank you for taking on the satanic media. WE are the silent millions. We know we win with Jesus in the end. And yet I pity them the eternity they face. Keep up the great work you are doing. We just lost a dog we had for 13 years. We feel your pain.

    Best prayer of all time…

    Dear God, let me be half the man my dog thinks I am.  Amen

    By the way, you’ll never make it but that is why we love our dogs so.  Maybe we could learn something from them?

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family Glenn. You are losing a family member. There will be days (even over a year later) when you will still cry. There is this wonderful site called “Rainbow Bridge” that has a wonderful poem attached and you can put in a memorial and they have a candlelight ceremoney every Monday night at 9:00 PM est. I find it very comforting when I am in need. I lost a good (kitty) friend well over a year ago and it is very comforting. God Bless you all and give you strength.

    Glenn I was so moved by your segment about your friend and family member Victor.  It took me back to the day we had to put our beloved pet dog to sleep 2 years ago.  She too was suffering and had gotten to a point that she could no longer eat or drink.  As we took her to the vet, I made my husband go in first to make sure the waiting room was empty because I knew I would be crying loudly.  My dog looked up at me in the car and for the first time in weeks, wagged her tail as if to say, “It is OK, I have lived a good life and I still love you”. I do believe we will be together again and as much as it hurt to lose her, the journey with her was a wonderful one!  My prayers will be with you and your family in the coming days.  God’s Peace Be With You!

    God bless you and your family. I known that it may not seem like it now to your son Raph, but you made the right decision. In 2002 I had to make the same decision with the first dog I ever had. She was a Mini-rat Terrier, named “Baby”, who had a personality that just wouldn’t quit. She understood over 57 different things that I would say to her and there wasn’t anyone or anything on four or two legs that she did not want to make friends with. She lived to be 19 years old in human years, and during all that time, she was always by my side and she was never on a leash as she always stayed right with me. One night in 2001, when she was 18, as we were returning home from a nightly walk, Baby suffered a stroke, which left her totally blind. But she still wanted to be with me. I tried to use a leash to walk her so that she could go to the bathroom, but when I put the leash on her, she laid down and refused to move. Since I use a cane when I walk, I tried taping the cane as I walked. To my surprise, she followed right along with no problem, and nobody knew that she couldn’t see, except a few close friends. One year later, she suffered several seizures and her kidneys shut down, which put her in a lot of pain. that is when I had to make the decision to have her put to sleep, The vet told me that no matter how much pain Baby was in, she was fighting tooth and nail to live because she did not want to leave me. I held her in my arms as the vet administered the drugs to put her down. I had her cremated and placed in a small urn, and when I pass, I have left word that I want the urn placed in the casket with me. It has been eleven years since her passing, but I still miss her very much, and often find myself breaking into tears whenever I think of her, but in my heart and soul, I know I made the right choice, and it may take some time, but Raph will know that you and your wife did the right thing. Give Raph a big hug from me and let him know that he will see Victor again.

    Liberals love to attack christianity and not buddhism because islam (and judaism invovled here as well in islam) have  stated that they are at war with jesus.  Hence, liberals attack jesus bec he is the flip opposite of islam.

    Jesus is what threatens them, bec it is the US (and Europe at one time) have more money (thru fed reserve printing) and military influence.  Buddhism is followed on asian and other eastern countries primarily.  Hence, Allah is following where the money is.

    What I’m saying is that you have no idea if buddhism or other religions are also true.  They could be true.  Remember, liberals don’t attack Judaism – does that mean jews cannot be saved?

    Hi Glenn, On July 10, 2012 our family lost our beloved Chloe (Boxer/Rot mix) after almost 14 amazing years together. My wife and I rescued Chloe (PLEASE RESCUE ANIMALS!!!) from the Pasadena Humane Society in 1999 when she was 9 months old. She was a handful! Full of energy and needing allot of direction and guidance. We trained her, spent allot of time with her and over the years she was the best dog I have ever had in my life and I have owned allot of dogs. Over the years, Chloe’s personality came out, she was a great watch dog, awesome personality and just the smartest dog I ever had the pleasure of calling my own. He attitude was laid back, loved to be spoiled, she had Directv during the daytime when we were gone, better health care than I had and of course at night she took over our sleep comfort bed. I think her number was a 40 BTW. Chloe kept me company during the daytime since I work from home. She made our home secure and kept me company during my work load. I always felt like I was needed by her which I did not mind. She had allot of health issues during the time we had her, she required a special medical based diet, and health care for various other issues. Needless to say we spent allot of money making sure she was well taken care of. The love and affection she gave both of us can never be replaced, her personality and intelligence  brought so much jot to our lives. In June of 2012, she was diagnosed with bone cancer. In my mind, I thought we would lose her by the end of 2012 but the end came only a few weeks after the horrible news from our vet. I came home on 7-10-12 finding her next to the door and looking like something was horribly wrong. I looked at her and she looked at me and I knew that she would not last through the night. The pain in her eyes as she looked at me will always haunt me. I called our vet and my wife at work and told them that I was bringing Chloe in as an emergency. My wife met me there along with our long time Vet Dr. Mark, and a few hours later he had told us that we had to put her down since the cancer had eaten through her bones and she was bleeding internally. 
    To hear those words was the worst thing I have ever been through in my life, typing the words to this story now is making me tear up. I am a former police officer, I have given out death notifications to family members, I have seen death numerous times in car accidents, homicides etc. and I have had other family members die and I never have had such an emotional reaction to a death before in my life. I know we gave Chloe a great life just like Glenn and his family have done with Victor. Talking to others about being there when we put her down was the best thing that I could have done or I would have regretted not being there for her last time on this planet. I try to think of the good times with her and that we saved her life from being put down in the shelter. I know she was a happy dog and that she loved us so much, but she was much more to us than just a dog. She was part of our family and she will always be a part of me. 3 weeks after her death we adopted another dog (Willie!) and he is starting to get with the program now but I can never replace Chloe nor would I try to do so. Glenn, my deepest thoughts are with you and your family right now, I know the amount of loss you are going through right now and I wish I could say it gets easier with time but at some point we do move on but we never forget the love, the compassion and all of the great times we have with the animals in our families. The joy and love they bring us can never be replaced but it can last a life time in our hearts and in our minds. Chloe will always be with me and I know your dog Victor will always be with you. I am truly sorry for the pain and loss you are going through right now. Please adopt another dog when you can. You can save a life and find joy again from an animal that will know you saved his or her life!

    I have lost two of my beloved dogs,both were 13 years old–but still they both were just like a little child of 6 or 7 years old. I miss them both so very much,they were a huge part of our family. One was a boy dog,Boots was his name,the other a little girl dog called Cuddles. I prayed to God that since,to me,I had the best boy dog in the world and the best girl dog in the world, that I could have a girl puppy from them in Dog heaven. A year later while shearching on my computer for another little girl dog—I found her,she was in a kennel in Florida but I was in Pa. I called a friend of mine in Florida,asked him if he would go to the kennel ,pick my dog up and put her on a plane for Pittsburgh ,Pa. I picked her up and she is a wonderful dog–she is the daughter of Boots and Cuddles. Am I crazy,maybe to some but God answered my prayer,her name is Brandi,she is almost 13 years old now and already I cry knowing that someday she will be gone too. I pray that when I am gone and in heaven that God will allow me to reach down and pet all three of my dogs.

    “‘You have to watch The Bible this weekend because you won’t believe how much the devil looks like Barack Obama.’ ”

    Glenn Beck tweets what the people, who don’t think, think.

    How would you describe  a person who indisputably lies, demonstrates frequent, blatant hypocrisy and works for fame and money?  The devil?  No, but something pretty close to that. 

    If not satanic, this person is a deceitful fraud!

    Can hardly see thru my tears as I type this comment… Over the years, I have appreciated your sharing a little glimpse into how Victor came into your life. I know that the role he played made him more than just a guard dog and family member. He is irreplaceable and your heart will hurt for a long time. I will be praying for the Lord Jesus to comfort you all.  And I also hope He has another dog who will be just as wonderful as Victor, only unique as God makes him. Somehow, you just know that dog spelled backwards is god IS NOT a coincidence.  God bless you, Glenn and all your loved ones too.

    Glenn and family. I completely understand what you all are going through. We have an older dog, who is healthy right now, thank God. But last Monday we had to put our cat of 18 years to sleep, she was frail and quit eating. It is like losing a member of the family, no, it is losing a member of the family.  I remember when you got Victor, he has been a loyal companion, guardian and friend to you. He has been loved and has lived an incredible life with you and Tania and the kids. Take comfort in that and God bless you all, God bless you, Victor.

    God Bless you and your Family Glen.  It is never easy for us to say goodbye to part of our family.  I had went through this twice in the past with 2 pets. Then last May we lost out beloved Otis a 125lb yellow lab. He had a massive heart attack on our kitchen floor. I was very devastated to say the least. I had went through this before but somehow my connection with this dog was different I asked God if I could see him one more time so I could see that he was ok. It was about 4 days later while I was walking to my garage when in a blink of the eye there my Otis stood looking at me in the yard. He looked like he did when he was young and looked very happy. So God did answer and showed me that he loves his animals and that Otis was ok.
      So be assured you are doing the best thing for Victor he will be in the best place ever with God.

    Unfortunately I know where you are coming from.. over the past 3.5 years I lost 2 felines and 2 k-9′s.. One dog 17.5 years old that I had to put down…  In addition to all THAT.. My wife battled Glioblastoma Multiforme level 4 terminal brain cancer since 2008… She was given 9-12 months but managed to keep the fight up for over 4 years, passing away 11 months ago…. I remain blessed that I still have one 11 year old large dog who has really been there for me in getting through all the BS over the years….. You are NOT losing a pet.. but a loved and honored FAMILY MEMBER… Prayers with you in your losses…

    You are so filled with hate and evil with no life that you have now posted your 2nd posting after the one an hour ago.  The previous posting was “DID VICTOR DO ENOUGH TO EARN HIS 72 VIRGINS?”  How can your twisted mind use a phrase associated with terrorists and mass murder to attack Glenn Beck, his son, his family and a beloved member of their family named Victor?

    My 93 year old Mother’s dog (and mine) Spotty died this past Friday at home on his own terms.  I spent months to keep him alive and happy because he was my Best Friend and my Mom’s constant companion and protection.  I had to dig his grave where all of our pets are buried and watch my Mom’s grief through my own tears. Just like the Beck’s family picture, I laid on the floor with our Best Friend for the entire night making our English Setter as comfortable as possible.

    Glenn mentions his 8 year old son and what he went through with the loss of Victor and helping him get through it with the Bible and religion.

    You call this WACKO?  I suggest you look in the mirror and you will see a real sick, mentally disturbed and hateful WACKO!

    Apparently you and/or any elderly family members have never had a pet that was their Best Friend that provided unconditional love, companionship and protection.  I presume you have not had or known of a young child that has had such an important part of their life be lost in death.  I presume you know nothing of the Bible and have had no religious upbringing.

    I feel so sorry for YOU and what you have missed in life.  Judgement Day will come for all of God’s Creations and your “Book of Life” will be read to determine where you spend eternity.

    May God have mercy on your soul for your comments and beliefs.  One thing I am sure of is the answer to your prior posting:  DID DSLPITDOR (Victor) DO ENOUGH TO EARN HIS 72 VIRGINS?

    You are all really staying with your (pet) (friend) (little being).It’s a pretty horrible gut-wrenching experience, and yet, I still believe in not putting-down a pet unless one absolutely “has” to. 
    It’s an individual experience & decision of course…blessings to you and yours.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your family, your friend Victor.  I sat and watched your video just now and cried through the entire thing.  I have to make that decision soon for both of mine and I just haven’t been able to.  My little guy sat next to my Mom’s bed and cried after she passed, he has been my friend and comfort through so many things and now he has lost his sight to glaucoma.   I keep praying that they will go peacefully in their sleep but it doesn’t appear that it will happen that way. I have done rescues for years and it never gets easier to lose them.   Victor has been part of a loving wonderful family and he will be waiting for you…… Bless you and your family Glenn

    My prayers are with you and your family-such a heart wrenching decision and loss-I have lost several pets-some through their own illness and some through assistance;  we too are facing the same decision with one of our dogs-if they could only tell us what they would want-but I think our heart knows the right decision, hard as it may be, and I credit you with being strong enough to make that decision.  I have seen other dogs existing in pain because their owners were not strong enough and it is heartbreaking;  Victor has done right by you and you must repay him by helping him now as hard as it is.  You know you will see him again and he will thank you over and over again.  You and your family will get through this and God will help you.

    I know exactly how you and your family feels, as I had to put down my service dog – Athena – after she was with me for 12 and 1/2 years.  I felt like my heart was literally tore out of my chest, as my very best friend was taken from me and I was left alone.  Within 5 days of her death, however, God brought me Isis.  A breeder brought her to my house, and told me that she had heard that I had lost my service dog,  and she felt she had to bring this one to me.  Isis is now 4 and 1/2 years old and I know she was a gift because she has healed my heart.  I pray that God will heal your heart, and your families’ as well.

    You should take solace in knowing that you are doing the right thing for Victor.  He needs you to do this for him as he cannot do it for himself.  I have had 3 great dogs and I fully understand what you are going through.  I’m sure he got as much love from your family as he could give back.  Victor would be proud that he did his job well.  God bless you, your family, and Victor.

    Glenn, what you and your family are going through right now with the loss of a wonderful, loving and trusting pet is something that is especially difficult. I have been where you are now, have grieved – and continue to do so, and have come out on the other side with an even greater respect, admiration and love for all pets. Pets love unconditionally – something I think we could all learn by their example. My prayers and thoughts are with your family at this time. 
    One word of advice, if I may…. adopt another pet when your family is ready… it may be hard to think right now of even laying yourself open to this idea because of the pain you know you will eventually suffer at the end of it… but it is well worth the effort. I swore I’d never get another pet when my Buffy (a cocker spaniel) died but I did – eventually… and the experience has helped me to heal.
    God be with you!

I worry about having to make that unbearable decision too as my special friend Ridge is a 13 year old beagle who no longer sees or hears but is still full of energy.

    Dearest Glenn, you broke my heart on your show today telling us of your dear friend, your dog Victor. My heart goes out to you, your family, and sweet Victor. I have been praying for you all to have peace. Your a hero because you are putting his needs first and it would just be mean for him to suffer. I know in my heart you and your family will be with him again where there will be no more pain, suffering and loss. Jesus has trusted him with your family and you all have done an amazing job caring for him and making him a part of your family. Now it’s time for sweet Victor to go home. 2 Thessalonians 3:16 reads “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give me peace at all times and in everyway.” I pray this for you and your family in this difficult time. God bless you.

                  The Last Battle                      

    If it should be that I grow frail and weak
    And pain should keep me from my sleep,
    Then will you do what must be done,
    For this — the last battle — can’t be won.
    You will be sad I understand,
    But don’t let grief then stay your hand,
    For on this day, more than the rest,
    Your love and friendship must stand the test.
    We have had so many happy years,
    You wouldn’t want me to suffer so.
    When the time comes, please, let me go.
    Take me to where to my needs they’ll tend,

    Only, stay with me till the end

    And hold me firm and speak to me

    Until my eyes no longer see.

    I know in time you will agree

    It is a kindness you do to me.

    Although my tail its last has waved,

    From pain and suffering I have been saved.

    Don’t grieve that it must be you

    Who has to decide this thing to do;

    We’ve been so close — we two — these years,

    Don’t let your heart hold any tears.

    So sorry you lost your fuzzy family member.  It leaves such a whole in your everyday life, but you did the right thing as he was suffering.  You don’t treat friends, even if they are animals with anything but kindness in their last hours.  From experience I know, don’t wait to long to have another family pet.  You are not replacing Victor, you are adding a new member to the family. 
    Bless you Glenn and your family members too.

    God Bless you and your family on the loss of Victor.  I remember the Victor stories from your many years on the radio.  My family has done just what you have done.  Our Taz passed away on 12/16/2011.  We have rescued another dog to love and be with our other dog Happy.  Tonight as my husband called the dogs to go outside–he said Happy-Taz lets go outside.  I asked him if he knew what he said and yes he did–he then said come on Lilly–you can go too.  Taz was going for the walk with him tonight in his heart. They are our family and they are always with us.
    Rest in peace Victor.

    There is not much I can say to  ease your pain of this loss!  Dogs are such loyal and trusting animals that they do indeed become a member of one’s family.. Just know your dog knew he was loved and returned that love times a hundred! He was a lucky dog to have had a wonderful life with everyone of you!  Let me just say thank you on behalf of your pet for providing  him a loving home! He had a wonderful life with the Glenn Beck family..

    I feel your pain Brother, my wife and I just lost our 14 year old Golden Retriever “Dugan”. We have been glued to the series and we both believe in the promise of eternal life.

    To Glen and family I am so sorry for your loss of beautiful Victor. I truly know the pain of losing a best friend. I know because I just lost my Roxy (black lab) on 02.21.13 and we had to make that dreadful decision on what was best for Roxy. We asked ourselves what kind of quality of life is she going to have and the suffering she would have to endure. It was one of the hardest days of my life to see her be put down. Her companion Barney still looks for her and it breaks my heart, I know we have two other french bull dogs but he misses his Roxy. She was going on 13 and still had a lot of life in her except for the last 6 months, she was going down hill. Now there is a big void in my life, she can never be replaced.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your family friend and loved one.  A pet is such a part of
    our homes and lives. Our children are the center of our pets lives and they seem to love
    them as much as we do.

    I believe like you Glenn that we will see them again and that is one of the first ways our
    children learn to feel loss but not hopeless dispare.  For some of our Children it is the
    first close family member that they will lose and learn from. 
    Thank God for his message of eternal life through Jesus Christ our hope

    I had to put my best friend to sleep 2 years ago now.  One of the worst days in my life.  She was a female German Shepherd that looked a lot like Victor.  I Got her when I graduated from the police academy and she was actually born on the same day that I got hired on as a Deputy Sheriff.  I don’t know whats wrong with VIctor but she was 13 and her hips were gone.  The day that she litterly threw her self down the starts to be with me I knew.  Thoughts and Prayers for you and your family.  On a side note if you are going to do things like this on the Radio I am going to have to stop listening.  It simply will not do for me to be seen in my squad car sobbing.

    Glenn and family, I’m very sorry to hear of the loss of your family pet. Our family just went through the same painful process this past September 29th when we had to say goodbye to our family Shepherd/Lab “Marley” who we had as a member of our family for 14 years. Our son Tom bought him while a student at Syracuse University and he became a Frat Dog for the first year of his life after which Marley was left at home here in Marshfield, MA to become our family pet who was treated as one of our sons. Reading your description of your last hours with Victor who actually looks just like our Marley, I was on the verge of crying knowing how hurt your young children felt to say goodbye to there “best friend”. In any case I want to share with you something that our son shared with me the day Marley died. It’s a poem called “Rainbow Bridge” which perhaps you’ve already read!  God Bless you and your family, Sincerely, Norm Platt an old friend and neighbor of Brian Sack who once lived next door.
       RAINBOW BRIDGE
     Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes toRainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; Her eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…. Author unknown…

    My condolences to you and your family at this very sad time. You are losing a beloved member of your family. I went through something similar with my shepherd Sara. Having her put down was the most difficult and heart breaking thing that I have ever done. But it was the right thing to do and the right time to do it. Sharing your life and love with them means having to make the tough choices. But writing down memories and poems in her honor were a wonderful release and helped greatly with the healing process.

    I am so very sorry about the decision that is being made this weekend. Ending my dogs lives was the hardest decision I’ve EVER had to make. my thoughts are with you and your family. kids– know that you will always love Victor and yes you will see him again. And when the time comes for another pet—it will be good.

    Glenn, I’ve had to make this decision 3 times and it NEVER gets any easier. Yes, I believe we will definitely meet our pets again in Heaven. I think it is a special gift that God allows us to have – for caring for His Creations. “The Bible” airing at the same time as this event in your family’s life is NO accident. It was planned by God, to help you console you and your family by His Crucifixion and Resurrection.

    Praise God for our four legged babies.  Victor is part a your family.  He has been like a son and brother to your precious family.  He will never be forgotten.  Part of your Soul is broken, but believing you will see him soon is so comforting.  Animal lovers are very special.  Dogs are a gift from God.  Thank you Lord Jesus for Victor and all the others that are like him.  He had a job to do, he has fulfilled that job with honors.  Now he will be in Heaven resting and waiting for all of you to join him.

    God bless your family and may the Lord give you
    peace and joy,

    Glenn, I am so sorry for what you are all going through. We have four dogs and lost our beloved golden retriever last October and still cry at times. They are true members of the family that want nothing from you except kindness but they give unconditional love. If only we, as people, could learn to be the way they are. Don’t let those idiots in the media get to you – they are trash and truly aren’t worth another thought. You are a good man and God knows that. They will have to deal with Him someday and I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes. I hope you and your sweet family can soon just remember Victor with lovely memories and hope that God takes the hurt away.

    On February 15, I had to make the same decision for my precious Midnight.  She had fought the congestive heart failure (with medication) for a bit over 2 years – and then was diagnosed with a tumor next to her heart in January.  She had been my baby for 12 years (and was nearly 15 yrs old).  She saw me my husband’s death on 9/11 (Pentagon) and rearing my son alone.   I’d like to think she welcomed your Victor home. You and your family will be in my prayers.  God wrap His arms around you all in comfort.

    Glenn, may God bless you and your family.  We lost our dog Kelsey of 18 years in 2008.  God was just and sent us another dog – Abby.  She is wonderful and we have put all our love into her.  Why do you think this movie, The bible, has made a bigger impact on the American people –  than The Passion of the Christ?  I have that DVD and is was so moving that it seemed as if I were there.  Both should and will bring you to your knees if you have any ounce of compassion at all.  Thank God for his grace and mercy he shows us each and every day.  I am so thankful I am his and he is mine.   Keep you faith!!!

    Please ton’t kill your dog.  If it is not right to euthanize people and have death panels for people it is not right to do it to pets either.  Your dog is fighting valiantly to remain with your family.  What you need is a BETTER vet, a holistic one.  Big pharma drugs are just as bad for pets as they are for people.  If it is heart failure which I am guessing, lasix and digitalis are short term boosts which do more harm in the long run.   What is needed is co enzyme Q`0 it heals weak hearts, I have used it successfully on two dogs, and then there is the herb hawthorne which immediately strengthens and regulates heartbeats.   iWith the rigth holistic program your dog could have a few more good and active years with you.  Do not kill him or let your ignorant vet do so either.

    They say it is the “humane” thing to do and that has all been secret liberal programming to make us in time feel the same way about “putting grandma to sleep”   Where there is life there is hope, Killing your dog will leave a hole in your soul that may not easily heal.  It is not humane and the dog would tell you  he did not want to be euthanized if he could talk..  I can assure you that whatever is wrong there is a solution in the field of alternative and holistic medicine.  Conventional medicine both human and veterinary has become riddle with evil.  If you use you investigatory skills on this you will soon know the truth.  As one person said “Drug compnies do not create cures they create customers.  Evil.   Drugs kill.   Herbs and vitamins and other nutritional means are what heals.   

    Do not kill your dog please.  Give him to me and I will heal him and return him to you.

    You have come a long way since I have been observing you, but in many many ways you are still a wet behind the ears innocent.   If you still take pharmaceutical drugs, for yourself or family or give self and kids and pets vaccines you have not yet “got it” as to how deep the well goes of the evil spreading over our world.

    Your vet has hurt your dog probably unwittingly as most vets and doctors are unwitting tools these days of big pharma.  They do not care about you or your kids or  your pets, to them it is all about the money and the agenda to take out bodies, and why not make money as they exterminate the unfit and the unwanted, the perfect Nazi plan.   

    Please do not kill your dog.  I will consult with you on what to do, but where there is life there is hope.  Honor you dogs struggle to stay with you.

    Glen, my heart goes out to you and your family. I’ve lost many dogs, as I’ve had many – and each loss is heart breaking. I strongly recommend the book “Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates”. It’s helped me in many ways, many times. Prayers for you and and hugs to all of you at this incredibly sad time.

  • Susan McGehee

    My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of one of your family. I recently lost my lil-buddy (of 16 years) and then my Mother shortly after; sometimes, I don’t know which was worse. I truly know the grief you’re going through. As others have expressed – try not to dwell too much on the loss, but remember the good times, the fun, and the joy. I rescued an abused dog; perhaps adopting another sometime in the future will allow your family to share the love your family has had for Victor, and grant some other furry-friend the chance at love and happiness that Victor had. God bless & be well.

    Buddhism is a much more refined and evolved philosophy than any of the simplistic heaven/hell myths. It will become more prevalent as human condition improves and humans become more educated and intelligent. 

    Current human condition is primitive and afterlife goodies need to be offered to persuade the lowly masses. All that will change as we grow in intellect.

    I also had to have our old dog put down recently, we cried the entire way back from the vet.  It was awful, she was old, lame and dearly loved.  But remember this, dogs and horses are Gods special gift to humans.  If there are none in heaven, I want to go where they go .

    Glenn and family, we know the creatures are in Heaven…scripture clearly describes them around the throne.  We will see our sweet four legged family again.  I believe God uses them to teach us to care for His creation. To learn how to love simply for the sake of loving.  To want to share company with another simply because being together makes us better.  They teach us forgiveness.  That is what they teach us…if we allow it.  Your heart is sore.  It will mend…because God has taught you how to trust Him.  And part of that is through His wonderful gift to us…the creatures He created and then said of…”It is good”.  God bless you and your family.

    Dear Glenn,
    Please tell your family I had to put my dog down after 14 1.2 wonderful years with her.  It was so hard and it is okay to cry, but explain to your children, we cry for OUR loss because the dog does not want to hurt anymore.  Your dog wants to sleep peacefully.  He has had enough pain.  Release your pet from pain and he will be grateful to you and your family, even from heaven.

    I cannot wait until you come back to Toronto.  I saw you on tv when Brian Lilley interviewed you

    You have a right to mourn because you are losing a very special friend, Victor.  I have always seen dogs as a way of God telling us how much He loves and cares for us.To paraphrase badly a line from scripture, “In this life we see God as in a mirror darkly, but in the end we shall see Him face to face.”   I realized one day that if I wrote dog on a sheet of paper and held it up to a mirror, it read god.  I truly believe that my dogs have given me much love and comfort over the years because they were sent as special messengers from God to comfort and console me in times of sorrow and grief such as when my young husband died suddenly of a triple A,  I had to sit and explain to my dog Tavish why he was no longer with us and she sat with me and her saddened eyes looked into my weeping ones, assuring me that one day we would all be together again.
    Sadly, she too has now gone.  When the vet told me to “put her down” because she was dying, I asked for just one more day, hoping for a miracle.  It was as if I was losing my husband all over again as she had been his dog.  The next morning the vet called to say she had taken the decision out of my hands and had left this life but was waiting for me in the next.  That was in 2001 and it is only recently that I have been able to consider acquiring a new companion from a rescue center.  Of course, no one will ever replace her, but I now realize she would not begrudge me another companion in my elder years.
    I shall keep you all in my prayers and please tell Raphe that he will one day be with Victor again because God is pure love and in Him resides the power to erase all the pain and hurt we endure in this life.  God bless you all.

    Our dog we named Rescue came to us. Someone dumped her out on a country road. She was mostly black Lab about 9 weeks old. She came running toward my husband when 2 big farm dogs started chasing her. He  put her in our pickup truck and brought her home. We had her for exactly 11 years…from July 19, 1999 to July 19, 2010. She got terrible heat stroke ,she could not get over the terrible seizures. It was 110degrees in the shade that week in Kansas.
    We buried her in the back yard where the vet gave her 3 lethal injections…her heart was still very strong. She was special to many people. She just loved everyone. I know through answer to prayer she will be in “heaven” and through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice, so will I.

    I truly believe that God would not give us these animals to love and care for, here on Earth, if He didn’t intend on reuniting us one day. I believe God brings pets into our lives for a purpose….to demostrate unconditional love. Death will not separate us.  One day Victor will come running to greet you and you will live together for eternity. As hard as it will be to let Victor go, each day will bring you closer to your reunion. GOD IS LOVE.

    We have had to put three dogs to sleep and our mixed Beagle is now almost 14 and we know her days are getting shorter so we know we will probably go through the heartbreak of losing “another devoted friend” again.  Our hearts go out to you and your family this week and the weeks to follow.  God gives us the gift of beautiful animals to love and care for but what they give in return is far more. May God comfort you and your family, especially your son as you grieve.  I hope you do read this letter as there is a site that gave us such confirmation that we did the right thing when we lost our last friend and had to make the decision of putting her down.  If you can be with Victor as he passes.  You will never regret it.  The site where you might find much comfort is http://www.angelbluemist.com/portrait.html

    We had a little dog… all white with big black eyes.  Named Peepers.  Lived 17 years with us.  I’m told that’s a long time for a little dog.  As he faded (needed help to get up onto the bed with us at night, etc.) we helped.  Had regular vet visits.  We resisted the advice to put him down, despite failing eye sight and hips that just wouldn’t do what he wanted them to do.  In the end, he made the decision for us.  He started bleeding.  We’d waited too long. Wrapped in a towel, we rushed him to the SPCA for euthanasia, but it was late in the day on Saturday, and he wouldn’t be looked to until Monday, said the kind women at the center.  We cried all weekend, wondering how Peeps was doing.  We had him cremated, as we don’t have anywhere to bury him.  We got another dog, eventually.  First female dog I ever had. New personality.  New life.  But, she won’t replace Peepers. Just add to his memory.

    Glenn, my heart is breaking for you and your family.  Victor is a beloved family member.  The pain of his passing will take a while to heal.  Ten years ago, we lost our family dog who helped raise our 3 kids.  That was really hard.  I cried every day for at least a year.  

    Two years ago on St. Patrick’s Day, I had to make the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make and that was to put our precious Anna to sleep.  She was one month shy of 16 years old and it was time although it’s never an easy decision no matter how obvious it may be.   I felt horribly guilty as if I had killed my best friend.  My heart took over when my brain knew it was best for her.  I’ve read a lot of books to make sure all my dogs will be in heaven when I get there.  I do believe in my heart they will.   I can’t imagine heaven without them.  
    God Bless You, Glenn and your family!  I’ll be praying for you all.  Victor is a very lucky dog for having a wonderful family like yours to love him so much and I know that you all feel like you are the lucky ones to have had Victor in your lives.  Dogs are some of God’s special angels.

    Glenn, my husband and I saw the resemblance of Satan to  Obama in the production of THE BIBLE before we ever heard about your comment.  In fact I have been calling him a silver-tongued DEVIL for the last four and a half years.  His actions do not show that he is a GOOD man.  His actions show him to be divisive and self-centered as he seeks POWER.  I truly wish that Romney had called him what we know Obama to be…a LIAR, COMMUNIST, MUSLIM radical supporter, and a TRAITOR to our CONSTITUTION.  I also think that Romney should have said that because of all the lies and fraud that Obama needed to be IMPEACHED.  People would have at least seen a level of truth like you give on your show.  We need more people like you and Dr. Ben Carson.  We also need to remember that Obama is supposedly half-white; therefore, he is NOT our first BLACK PRESIDENT.

    Glen, my heart goes out to your family.  I had a 7 year old Spitz who was my best friend that had seizures that were under control.  But he woke me up at 3 am 6 weeks ago seizing and he had 10 in a row w/no breaks in between and by the time he even semi stopped enough that I could get some meds in him something terrible had happened.  The vet didn’t know what.  He didn’t completely stop seizing until almost 7am and by then he could no longer walk.  So we waited 24 hours to be sure that whatever had transpired might not come back but by the next morning I had watched him suffer more than I could bare so we had to take him to have him put to sleep.  We had two little poms that we had to have put to sleep the year before but they were almost 20 years old and their health deteriorated slowly so I knew that the time was coming.  But I was not prepared for this baby of mine to go yet.  It happened too soon and too suddenly. I am getting better but still am hurting from his loss, so I know the pain that your family is going through!  I definitely will be praying for you and your children because I know how hard it is for them.  Since I have lost mine, I have felt like a child because I have cried so much and felt so much loss!  I don’t think other people understand sometimes!  You and your family will be in my prayers because I know that you reap what you sow!  By praying for you and your family to be comforted and your hearts to be healed, I believe that Yahweh will do the same for me!  May your son especially sense the lovingkindness of our Lord during these next few days and weeks!  And may you all be comforted by His Ruach, who is our comforter!

    Mr. Beck sorry for the loss of your dog, Victor. Several years ago we had to make that decision for my brother’s dog, Bud. I asked my Mom, “why do we have to do this?” “Why can’t they go on their own?” Well, that was on a Monday. The following Sunday was Mother’s Day, and my Golden Retriever needed to go outside because bad weather was coming and I knew she was scared of thunder. I went outside to get her to come in when I heard the thunder. She was lying on the ground just as if she had fallen asleep, but she was actually gone. It was so sad to us to lose both dogs within a week, and we miss her still today. She was the sweetest dog, but I do believe we’ll see her again. I think she is up in heaven with my Dad keeping him company until we get up there, too. And at least she’s not scared of thunder any more.

    Dear Mr. Beck,

    My “dogs” have always been my kids and my best friends. They have always been my family, always. I cried with you and for you and you family as I watched this clip. May God blanket you all in His Love, Mercy, Grace and most of all His Peace.

    God love you,

    Your family gave him much love and the best of the best, all the way till the end, Glenn. You can’t do any better than that for a loved one. I hurt along with you and your family in your loss of your beloved Victor.

    It’s so heartbreaking to lose your beloved family member, but Victor has had a wonderful, happy life being an important part of your loving family, and I strongly believe he will be wagging his tail and waiting for you when it’s your turn to enter the Pearly Gates of Heaven.

    Who would think that the loss of a pet dog can be as difficult or more difficult sometimes than losing a family member.  Your sadness is expected because our pets become members of the family and they are totally dependent on us, but they give us much more than we give them. We lost our favorite pet of all time, our Golden Retriever, the week before Christmas last year after 6 months of illness and we miss her every day.  Just when we think we have come to terms with her loss, something triggers tears for a beautiful dog with a beautiful personality and a hug for everyone.  I sense that Victor is that kind of dog for you and will never be replaced, only substituted, and that’s a beautiful legacy for one of God’s furry creatures to leave behind for your children.  When our dogs lose their quality of life, it is humane to euthanize them.  Your dog doesn’t know what ails him and you are doing him a big favor for all the years of happiness he gave each of you.  You can be thankful that you are able to choose when and how he leaves you.  Unfortunately, pets don’t live long and we know the relationship will be short, but it still ends too quickly.  In the meantime, your children are learning that every living thing will die and that is the way it is supposed to be.  You will cherish the happy moments you had with Victor and he will remind you of the best things in life – the small things.  My hugs to you, your family and precious Victor who will be feeling so much better and running with my Sundance very soon.  I hope he likes blondes!  God Bless all of you this week and in the coming  months of your sadness.  You have many supporters who understand what you are going through.

    My wife & I have done dog rescue & adoption for many, many years. Since we also take in many with no hope for adoption (old, blind, deaf, cancer) so they can live out their time in a loving home, we go through this pain all too often.  Believe me, each is agony and you NEVER get used to it.

    However, a very wise veterinarian gave us this advice on choosing the “right time” for euthenasia:  Better a week too soon than even one hour too late.  Our own love for a pet should not override his need to be relieved of pain.  The ones where you wait too long & the tumor bursts or some other sudden, intensely painful change happens — those are the ones that haunt you.  Ask your vet’s advice on this possibility, and then do NOT make your dog run this risk.

    You might also take comfort in this wise counsel, from an unknown source –

                                      A DOG’S LAST WILL & TESTAMENT

     

    Before humans die, they write their last Will &
    Testament, and give their home and all they have to those they leave behind.

    If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I’d ask — to a poor and lonely
    stray I’d give:

    My happy home;
    My bowl, cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys.
    The lap which I loved so much.
    The hand that stroked my fur, and the sweet voice that spoke my name.

    I’d will to the sad, scared shelter dog the place I had in my human’s heart, of
    which there seemed no limit.

    So when I die please do not say, “I will never have a pet again, for the
    loss and pain is more than I can stand.” 

    Instead go find an unloved dog; one whose life has held no joy or hope — and give
    MY place to him.

    This is the only thing I can give — the love I left behind.

    For the little ones who are most saddened by the void of a beloved,  one thing that seems it wouldn’t help but does in a most important way is to make a personal item of the beloved to wear on the child for closeness.  It could be for your son a chain with the doggy’s dog tag just like a G.I tag…for a little girl a brouche with the beloved’s picture.  This can help to give the child a sense of pride (if you will) and the happiness that they knew deeply and loved the beloved in a way that it feels far more personal and unique to them only..than say a picture on their bedside table or dresser.  It gives the child something that means it’s just theirs to carry on the memory of the beloved.  And it helps everyone very much.  Everyone wants to have that one special memory that’s just for them to hold dear a life with a beloved who’s Love will be forever missed.

    I’d will to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place
    I had in my
    human’s loving heart, of which there seemed to be
    no bounds.
     
    So, when I die, please do not say “I will never
    have a pet again, for the loss

    It is not the doing of Jesus.  People chose Obama/Bush – and they will be punished accordingly. 

    When things get bad enough, human psychology is to bend on their knees and accept a lot of things irrationally that they would not accepted in a prosperous, healthy environment.  When things get bad enough, Obama/Bush and their repub/dem cronies will offer false security and act as if they are savior.  And people will accept their politicians/gov’t as they have done in the US and forget Jesus real teachings and go for the antichrist. 

    So, you are wrong in sayingpeople will repent ‘when things get bad enough’.  Nope – in fact, the flip opposite will happen – this was already proven after 9/11 where people accepted two wars (iraq and afghanistan) that now sane Americans regret.

  • jen

    So you are saying jews are followinga  false religion as liberals do not attack judaism? 

    Particularly, it is the catholic church that is under attack, as it is the first church of jesus and it reveres Mother Mary, communion, etc…

    I don’t sense US christians having any concern over christianity in many ways – for ex, christians have been persecuted in the middle east since the Iraq War.  Prior to the Bush, christians lived peacefully there for the most part except for some areas like lebanon.  It was peaceful for christians in iraq, egypt, libya, etc… 
    Yet, Americans have no emotions/sympathy for them – infact, their one and only concern is for jews in israel and 0% anythingelse.

    According to Allah, he never came to earth and hence never died here as a human being.  Instead, he says he sent jesus but that jesus messed up, so he sent mohammed, who then had 33 wives at the same time and personally beheaded several hundred people that disagreed with the voice of allah. 

  • jen

    It has its own versin of antichrist – and that will be its downfall just as the downfall of christianity and other religions will occur as well, at least that is what is prophesized.  Downfall will occur when world is poor and destroyed by the US military/nukes, making people accept whoever offers them a bit of food and security, even under disguise of evil.

  • jen

    You should be telling to others and not me that you “don’t need to be saved’ by Jesus – Christian God.    I am not the one saying that there is only one path of goodness or salvation as the right-wing christian extremists say, who say they can only be saved if they support israeli politicians.

    Glenn, we went through this very same complexity of emotions last year when my best friend, Kisses had to be put down. Words can’t explain it. She was 17 years old, and her final struggle was just too great. The blessings are in the memories, Glenn. The memories of unconditional love. God gave us dogs, I believe, to teach us about the kind of love He has for us. And yes, contrary to the belief of many, there will be animals in heaven. Jesus and His bride will ride white horses when He returns again. If there are horses in heaven, there will be dogs. Someday we will be reunited. You are such a great man, Glenn. So human. God bless you and your family. My wife and I will pray for you during this difficult time.

    Dear Glenn & Family, I was so touched by your radio show on the loss of your dog.  Many of us know exactly what you have gone through and will continue to go through.  I still cry, missing my Max (also a German Shepherd) who we lost on 12/22/11. We had a tough decision too, since overnight he lost the use of his hind legs.  We had ordered a doggy wheelchair, didn’t matter the expense, but when he became totally incontinent, I could not care for him and keep him clean, as large as he was.  I tried, for a day or so but it was more than I could physically do – so we had to let him go.  He was only 9 years old and he was very special, not that they all aren’t.  But I had a special bond with him and I still miss him very much to this day.  Our new pup, Jessi, helps but of course, no dog could ever replace him.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and I know some people may not believe that dogs go to heaven, but my thoughts are – how could it be heaven without them?

    God Bless,

    Joy Koltenuk

    The Bible is a work of fiction. The life of Victor is more accurate than what myths arose around Jesus between his death the the 50 years before people started writing the stories down.

  • http://twitter.com/nutts2020 nutt

    The Buddha doesn’t have followers seeking reward from him. The spirit isn’t limited to ‘this evil world’, but in teachings is universal. It’s only those possessing of such an ego who take solace in the idea of an afterlife. Because of this, they live with death and fear every day every day of their life. That is no blessing. Fear and death follows every step and instructs every action.

    You know of course, that they were trying to make a Muslim counterpart to “the Bible”? The obviously would have called it “the Koran.”

    Prayers for comfort and peace.  What a gift you had in Victor.  My own GSD Ginger is almost 9 and a treasure to my family after we discovered her gift of predicting when my son would be ill (he had chemo/radiation and a bone marrow transplant).  There was a reason we had her as there was a reason Victor was a member of your family.  God Bless.

I hope that the good Lord takes away your pain and grief. Keep going and honor the unconditional love and sacrifice that Victor brought to your family. May you continue to share your gifts with the world, as Victor shared his with you. Never Stop!! Never Give Up!! Never Give In!! Bless you all .

    Glenn, I thought of this column by Ann Landers when I read the story about your having to lay your beloved pet to his rest.  May it bring you comfort.  
    Mary Walker, Ocala, FL

    The below tribute appeared in an Ann Landers’ Column in the mid-1990’s. It was written by Charles B. Wells, Jr., Palmyra, NY
    DOGS DON’T HAVE SOULS, DO THEY?
    I remember bringing you home. You were so small and cuddly with your tiny paws and soft fur. You bounced around the room with eyes flashing and ears flopping. Once in a while, you’d let out a little yelp just to let me know this was your territory.
    Making a mess of the house and chewing on everything in sight became a passion and when I scolded you, you just put your head down and looked up at me with those innocent eyes as if to say: “I’m sorry, but I’ll do it again as soon as you’re not watching.”
    As you got older, you protected me by looking out the window and barking at everyone who walked by. When I had a tough day at work, you would be waiting for me with your tail wagging just to say, “Welcome home. I missed you.” You never had a bad day and I could always count on you to be there for me.
    When I sat down to read the paper and watch TV, you would hop on my lap looking for attention. You never asked for anything more than to have me pat your head so you could go to sleep with your head over my leg.
    As you got older, you moved around more slowly. Then one day, old age finally took its toll, and you couldn’t stand on those wobbly legs anymore. I knelt down and patted you lying there, trying to make you young again. You just looked up at me as if to say you were old and tired and that after all these years of not asking for anything, you had to ask me to do one last favor.
    With tears in my eyes, I drove you one last time to the vet. One last time you were lying next to me. For some strange reason you were able to stand up in the animal hospital – perhaps it was your sense of pride.
    As the vet led you away, you stopped for an instant, turned your head and looked at me as if to say: “Thank you for taking care of me.”
    I thought, “No – thank YOU for taking care of ME.”

    Hey Beck… I would rather hang out with the devil (if there was one) rather than be around an idiot like you. You, Lush Rimbaugh and Roger Ailes are the most evil pricks in America – the real devils. But you know what is really great about this bible show? It makes the bible look like a Marvel Comic strip. Look at all the special effects you need to to make the bible happen as it is described. lol!!! You really think that crap happened? Why don’t you start worshiping the Transformers while you are at it. It is hysterical that Beck and the rest of you “Christians” want to base your lives on the writings of sheep herders from 2,000 years ago.

    Glenn, thank you for sharing.  I lost my Lab recently and I know how tough it is.   Since they can’t speak for themselves the burden and responsibility falls to us to make the right decision for them.   The fact that we truly love them means that we have to decide when they are suffering and when it’s time to let them go.    Dogs are a great example of unconditional love and we are blessed to share time with them.   Some day, when the time is right, another puppy will enter your life.   Not as a replacement but as another companion to share part of your journey.

    Although I am in agreement with almost everything Beck has said for years, and although it is always hard to lose a pet (as I know from personal experience), I must say that to believe and tell your children that they “see their pet again” is biblically false.  To gain eternal life is not for animals (although some may wish it were so), since we must “believe in our hearts and declare with our mouths that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father” as well as repenting.  No animal has ever done that…and they never will.

    I feel for your loss.  Our 16 and a half year old cat passed on January 8th and we were never sure whether or not she was suffering but loved her so much that we kept her with us. Funny how animals know when death is near.  They keep to themselves but in the end she spent a little time near each of us and her spirit left not far from where I was.  It was sad yet also joyful to know that I did not have to make that final decision that is weighing so heavily on your hearts. It will take time to adjust but for now time is all we have. With regards to  the Satan/Obama kerfuffle.  It seems like only the people who have not watched the progression of the episodes are the ones who perpetrate the erroneous comments that abound.  Last night ever Bill O’Reilly erred along with his guest that no black people were cast and Satan was made black to look more like Obama.  They must have missed the story of Samson then.  It is such a pity that when references to “choice” are made they must fall into the accepted secular box. All religions that refer to God are under attack. I would like to see  more of David Barton. Peace to you and your family.

    Although I have agreed with almost everything Beck has spoken about for years now, and although I sympathize with his family’s loss of a pet (which is very difficult and which I have dealt with several times), I must say that to believe and to tell your children that they “will see their pet again” is biblically untrue despite the fact that some may wish it were so.  To gain eternal life, one must “believe in your heart and declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father” and repent.  No animal has ever done this or ever will, and nowhere in the bible is there “animal salvation”.

    Oh Glenn…….I am in tears right now, we had to put my German Shepherd Bowie to sleep on December 22nd, and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. He was my best fur friend and my heart broke into a million pieces as I watched him slowly slip away. My only comfort is knowing that he is no longer suffering, and that one day I will see him again. He will be happy and whole, he will be strong and healthy, he will jump up and give me slobbery kisses like he used to, and I will cry tears of joy at seeing him again. It was also hard on my children, but they knew that the right decision was to let him go, and they also know that he is at peace. His ashes, his toys, his bowl, all remind me of the joy he brought to us during his short time on this Earth. As you well know, he will never be forgotten, and there will always be a hole in my heart where he used to be. I am not of any religious denomination, but I hope that you find comfort and solace in God, and that you and your family are in my thoughts. RIP sweet Victor, Bowie will greet you at the Rainbow Bridge…..

    I have been watching the Bible. Also Glenn, I am so sorry to hear about Victor. At my age, having had dogs most of my life, I understand how hard it is to say goodby to a dear friend. I lose two very special ones last December. I know in my heart that they will be waiting in Heaven. For of all creatures, what is more faithful and obedient to God’s will than the dog?

    Glenn,  I am so sorry about your dog,  I am going through the same thing except my dog is not suffering.  He is a big black lab and he is 19 years and a few months.  I have had him since he was 6 weeks old and this I know will be hard.  I pray every day that he just goes in his sleep but he doesn’t want to leave me and I know I am having a very hard time, he is my kid.  I have 2 other labs but we have so much history together and I know he can’t live forever.  It is amazing he has lived this long and I am so blessed for that. But I hug him every day to feel his warmth.
    I will pray for you and your family and your dog.

    Awww, Glenn, Just tell the family that there IS a Heaven for Doggies-  they turn into best-friend- angels; they get their health back, (in spirit) and become the trusted best-friends of little folk who had to return to Heaven before their parents do.  Let that little spirit have your best-friend doggie as theirs until their parents get there!   I had my Annie, a golden lab/sheltie X, for 16 years.  She was much like Nana in Peter Pan-  took care of my kids extremely well, got them up for school, (by yodeling!) became a pillow for their TV-watching, and shared a bag of Dorritos with me through every crisis (one for you, one for me…) including divorce and Nursing school finals and State Boards.  She was a great doggie, and I tell my current mutts that they are next-best to the world’s greatest dog.  When I had to put her down, I had come off a 12 hr night shift- I was SO tired I could barely walk.  I tried insulin-  it did nothing! Grrr.  Would have been easy on her.  I held her on the back porch till it became too hot to sit there (summer) called my Dad, who came and got her and he put her down, and dug her grave.  I sat there and cried until I fell asleep…  Later, I thought how very selfish I had been, causing her to suffer so very many days before I could let go, until she could no longer walk, instead of allowing her to romp off into Heaven to greet her new best-friend, and allowing us to get that new pound-puppy who was waiting for his (or her) new angel to rescue him.  Loving is an amazing adventure, but so is letting go!   Get that new dog ASAP!  It NEEDS you!   Hugs!

    No, nor will Christians lower their standards to lie about their religion.  Rather, when challenged because of it, we will seize the opportunity to share it, hoping that our story will turn even one heart toward the Truth!

    I believe that Jews are indeed persecuted!  Are you SURE that Jews are not persecuted by liberals?  I believe they are.  And, I believe you are incorrect about Christians not being concerned about our Celestial Siblings in other parts of the world as well.  I am very concerned!  Yet, I am an American, and a Christian.  Jen, you are just wrong in your rash assumptions.  Sorry.

  • paula marshall

    Espinoza, perhaps that is because they want to cut your head off with a sword if you do not convert to Islam.  That is reason enough for many folks to fear and hate them.  Their religion is simply NOT a religion of love and peace.  Its “attack, force, and kill.  Stone an abused, raped woman, beat your wife to feel like you are powerful over her, kill someone who exercises their GOD-given right to choose something different than their offering, etc.  If their ‘bible’ – their Qu’ran, tells them they need to kill anyone not of their religion, even if the moderates do not actually ‘follow’ that particular edict, the other religions of the world will disavow them, through disgust and fear, if for no other reason.  And the people whom they hold ‘captive’, through fear for their lives, will run like rats from a burning building, at any opportunity.  They REALLY ought to try adopting a loving GOD, and adopt charity toward others, if they REALLY want to turn the entire world into Islamists. They need to drop the sword of vengeance and leave that to their God.

    We are to know right from wrong, but only God knows ultimate Good. In this case the Main Stream Media (MSM) has unwittingly boosted viewership of “The Bible”. God’s economy is amazing. Glenn’s support of the Bible has blessed him and his family as they wrestle with loss of Victor. Now, Glenn’s humorous tweet has sparked the first media interest in even mentioning the series.
      I wonder how many new viewers will hear The Story who otherwise would not paying attention? I bet many, just to see what the Washington Post and CNN are talking about!
    Insofar as faith comes by hearing and hearing of the Word of God, I pray that the Holy Spirit will move mightily in the hearts of those merely tuning in for the sizzling controversy and bring them to a greater awakening!

  • paula marshall

    Two points:  1. AS the Islamic population in America continues to grow, you will begin to understand that Islam is NOT “over there”.  It is here.  Our judges are now being bought and paid for by Islamists enough that they are sometimes getting away with murder, and its because of, in a large part, Obama.  
    2. Furthermore, our laws against gay marriage and abortion come from the GOD of the Holy Bible, not from Christians.  Consider this:  If these same laws were not addressed in the Holy Bible, they would NOT be followed here by Christians.  So, your posit that Christians are responsible for these laws simply is not true…  they come from the Word of GOD.  Christians are merely following their faith by asking people to NOT kill helpless infants.  A heartbeat is the hallmark sign of life.  Once something has a heartbeat, it is ALIVE.  If you are suffering an MI, and are in the ER, if your heart is still beating, but you are not breathing air, you are quickly put on a ventilator. That heartbeat will dictate your future.  The sign of breathing is merely to oxygenate the blood which the heart pumps to other parts of the body.  If you have a heartbeat, you are alive.  And it is murder to willfully stop the heartbeat of another human, no matter how tiny.

    I’m sorry for your family’s pain. 
    I had to make the same decision two years ago at Easter time.  My 18 year old dog was way past the time he should have gone to be at rest with my parents, but it was such a hard decision to make, I kept postponing it, for my own selfish needs.  I’m glad you were able to get a second dog ahead of time, to lessen the crushing pain you are feeling.  I sent my Dasher off to go for the walks he used to enjoy with my mother before she died. They could both walk and run freely after they were released from their fragile, wornout bodies. 
    We will see them again in a ‘few’ days of eternity. We Believers have that Promise.  PTL

    that is taught love at a young age will be your friend forever.
    I too, had to put my pet down 2 weeks ago and I find myself
    remembering all the places he slept, his love for us, his being
    so good with children and all of the company we had.  I cry

    friends that never judge, they just love you.  Remember the love.

    You really don’t understand Jesus do you? None of his followers fear death like you claims we do. You have no understanding what really going on do you? Seeing how Jesus all of his students and handpicked followers say works are meaningless to get to heaven. Meaning your works alone can’t get you there even if it is in the name of God only accepting what Jesus did on the cross is the only way. See Jesus unlike Buddha will not let scum like Hitler get the same deal as his followers.

    Hey stupid, when have I ever claimed to be a “person of peace?” The answer: NEVER. “You leader?” It’s “Your Leader” and Beck is nothing of the sort for me, dunce. English is a wonderful language, you should learn it. By the way, everything you listen to and believe is sold to you by advertisers, idiot. As I stated before, you really should look up the term bigot and then look in a mirror. It’s pretty difficult to “debunk stupidity” when you are dumber than a bag of hammers.

     FAREWELL BRIDGE

    My tired body was showing its wear,
    As I slowly hobbled up the stairs.
    Under my rump your hand you’d place
    Climbing the stairs with a little more grace.
    My dragging paws caused nails to bleed
    You bought me booties – such a kind deed!
    No more days of jumping on your bed
    The floor brought more comfort to me instead.
    And the increasing accidents in the house
    The loss of control made me feel like a louse.
    For even though my mind still keen
    Better times this furry body had seen.
    Gone were the days of youthful mobility
    Replaced instead with waning dignity.
    From you my distress I could not hide
    A witness to my diminishing pride.
    The gloom was there; we both could tell
    Within our sight was the Bridge of Farewell.
    With cloudy eyes I gave you my plea
    Muster the courage, would you do this for me?
    This body now aching for my spirit to be freed
    Be not burdened with guilt for this kind deed.
    Although the time has come, say not goodbye
    For my spirit will soar back down from the sky.
    From there like a magnet it will come along
    To dwell where my body once made its home.
    Although my body must leave, say not goodbye
    For my spirit in this home will remain alive.
    And as long as you shall think me there
    My spirit and you shall remain ever near!

    So sorry about your pet. I’ve had to put down a couple pets, and although it was very hard, I didn’t hesitate for long because I knew they were suffering. I refuse to let an animal suffer needlessly just because I’m going to cry when they are gone. To prolong their agony is selfish on the owner’s part. I could never live with myself if I knew I had made them suffer when I could have ended the suffering. Prayers to your family and may the Lord comfort you during this sad time

    I am so sorry for your loss and really can empathize in a big way.  We know when we give our hearts over to these marvelous companions that we will face this some day but it still comes as a shock.  Bless you and yours while you are all grieving.  They are so darn special.

    People are hungering for something to turn to when in need of spiritual comfort and so the “Bible” has come at a very opportune time. Those of us that have known that comfort can say with no hesitation it couldn’t have come at a better time.
    Please open your hearts for the peace of heart that will come your way for the answers to your most basic questions and how to solve some problems within these pages. We as people are staving for spiritual guidance; Look around at what the world has become. Do you like what you see? If you don’t own one, Get one. Second hand book stores are practically giving them away. Start at the beginning and study the word of God and really focus on the many messages it will reveal. Go to a bible based non- denomination chapel to get a better understanding of a life better lived in Christ.

    Dear Glenn, Tania, Cheyenne & Raif,God Bless you all.  You are family to us!  Believe me, I have been there and could go there again soon, it’s very sad and you have to be a person that thinks of animals as people, or perhaps like me and my husband who put them on a higher plane — animals have so much knowlegde that they get from God and as time has gone by and so many people have gone crazy animals stay the same, making sense, being loving and loyal.  Too bad people can’t learn from their example.  Victor is with God now and you will be reunited one day.  In the meantime, go through the greiving process, it’s normal and necessary.

    This poem has always helped me at times like these.
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. Mary Elizabeth Frye

    Take comfort in knowing God is with you and your family in this difficult time.

    You don’t understand what I wrote. I didn’t say you fear death, only that fear and death are shadowing your every action and thought. Buddha doesn’t ‘let’ anybody ‘get’ anything. The whole thing about ‘getting’ something is a total irrelevance. The only thing that everybody ‘gets’ is an end to life in this form.  As in a Christian funeral service; dust to dust, ashes to ashes. You choose one way of approaching that moment, Buddhists choose another. They just don’t go round arrogantly calling it ‘the only way’, because that’s an ego-based standpoint.  (And spare us Godwin’s Law, eh?)

    Christianity has been persecuted in all its forms from the foundations of its existence.  The Catholic Church was not founded by Jesus, and many Christian denomiations have fought severe persecution, even to bloodshed, at some point in their history.  Eastern Orthodox, Catholics, early Christians, Anabaptists, Methodists, Mormons…they’ve all had to pay for their beliefs in blood.  ;)

    Give Victor permission to leave, tell him you and your family will be ok without him and that he may go so that he will be more comfortable.  Remind him that you will be with him some day.  Sometimes all they need is the permission to leave and let go.  These are some of the hardest moments of having dogs or other animals in our lives

    I think he did many things. But I believe that Christians live in fear of hell and bend their thoughts accordingly. That is an ego-driven fear. Don’t confuse ego with an overblown sense of self. It is a result of ego, but isn’t ego. Why would I bring Marx into the debate? Why have you? First Hitler, now Marx. You brought Buddha into the debate, yet display no understanding. Why not simply admit your mistake?

    No you are egoistic. You think you better than everyone else. You claim to understand Christianity but post after the post after post proves otherwise. And as far as I am concern I done talking to a narcissist who thinks he knows everything about everything but knows nothing. Your statement “Christians live in fear of hell and bend their thoughts accordingly” is a load of dung and anyone that knew what Jesus really teaches would know that. Why do I have to live in fear if I am saved? If I can go to my God and ask for him to forgive me when I screw up and be forgiven Buddha your useless god can do nothing for you. Cannot help you cannot be their when you’re in trouble and need comfort can’t bring the dead back from life cannot help you in any shape or form and does not care for his followers. All he does is go hay you fate is like everyone else’s worm food. He don’t even care enough to even be there as a friend to guide you through bad times. All it seems Buddha cares about is being fat and lording over people he really doesn’t give a flying poo about. Sorry but I am sticking with my God that at least cares.

    Hi Glenn and family.

    I was always cooler about pets until I had my own. I have to tell you that we underestimate animals in many ways. They can see where we are blind, they can hear where we are deaf, and they can understand where we are numb. It is amazing how God created animals around us and for us. Actually there is a Bible verse Proverbs 12:10 that tell how the righteous take care of their animals.HE cares more than most of us realize. HE created all, yes even our wonderful pets!
    So rest easy, what HE cares about HE has a plan for.
    God bless your family and may joy return, we have a good God.

    this is an excerpt from a note I received from our vet after having to put our pet to sleep….
    ..”we share in your sadness with the loss of Gray C.  We know how much she meant to you and how sad you feel in your loss. In missing Gray C. find comfort in knowing you gave her a great home and a wonderful life. We understand the difficulty of your decision to let her go peacefully. As you are feeling sad because a part of your family is gone, may it help you to know grief is an affirmation that our love is very much alive.

    I’m trying to work with tears in my eyes. My wife and I have lost 3 of our Labs in the past 2 years, probably a 4th in a matter of months.  I know how deeply hurt you and your family are as do all others that have posted here.
    Our prayers are with you Glenn and your family over the loss of your family member, Victor

  • Sandra Coppola

    Unfortunately i have gone through the same loss with some of my best friends – i have no two legged children but i have been blessed with several with 4 legs.  When we lost Vegas almost 5 years ago now my husband never thought he would get another – he could never replace Vegas.  But over soem time he realized he missed his friend and then the seach was on for a new friend, not a replacement.  We have been blessed with Hondo who is everything Vegas was and all we wished he could be.  They are all different and special in thier own way.  And you will see him again.  Remember – he is counting on you to do what is right for him, not necessarily what you and your family would like.  He has done his job by being there for your family and now you owe it to take care of him.

    You will see him again on the other side – i know that this does not help now, but i hope that in time you will find comfort in my words and prayers for your family.  You must be able to let him go with his dignity and please know that you have been blessed with this tiem to let him know how much he has meant to you and how much you love him – that is a gift in itself. 

    They always say that they will let you know when it is time, and by God they really do.

    God bless you and your family during this difficult time.  But remember, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.

    My heart goes out to you and your family over your decision to put
    Victor down. We went through the same thing a few years ago with my
    oldest son’s 4-H dog, Bart. He was a Springer Spaniel/Brittany
    Spaniel mix that my son got for his 11th birthday. Chris took him in
    dog obedience at 4-H fair for 5 years and they had an unbreakable
    bond. When Bart became so ill and unhappy that we had to make the
    same decision you are going through, we all went to the vet together
    and held him in our arms as he took his last breath. We buried him
    at home.

    A few days afterwards, we got a lovely card from the vet’s office
    with this beautiful poem that I thought might help you as it helped
    us ease the pain.

    If It Should Be

    If it should be that I grow weak
    And pain should keep me from my sleep
    Then you must do what must be done
    For this last battle cannot be won.
    You will be sad, I understand
    Don’t let your grief then stay your hand.
    For this day more than all the rest
    Your love for me must stand the test.
    We’ve had so many happy years
    What is to come can hold no fears.
    You’d not want me to suffer so
    The time has come, please let me go.
    Take me where my needs they’ll tend
    And please stay with me until the end.
    Hold me firm and speak to me
    Until my eyes no longer see
    The kindness that you did for me.
    Although my tail its last has waved
    From pain and suffering I’ve been saved.
    Please do not grieve, it must be you
    Who had this painful thing to do.
    We’ve been so close, we two, these years.
    Don’t let your heart hold back its tears.

    Glenn recently stated he was still searching for meaning.
    In Genesis God tells us, death and decay are a result of sin.
    I truely believe this is a gift, so that we may understand how seriously God views sin.
    It is in light of this truth that we are to shape and guide our lives.

    Glenn, it’s so hard to say good-bye to an old friend and I’m sorry for the loss you and your family will be feeling for a long time.  There is no easy fix for this pain.  When I have been through this terrible decision with my Golden Retriever and my Siamese my Vet has given me some thoughts that helped a little.  I asked Dr. Gradous, how will I know when it’s time?  He told me De De would tell me when it gets so painful and so hard to be alive, I would be able to give her the peace she so desparately needed.  I saw De De and later, Lovey endure so much pain to just stay with my family because they loved us so much.  I have come to believe they needed me to give them release … to give them up just for a little while until I see them again.  I believe I honored their devotion to my family by helping them go on to a better life until I can join them.  I see their sweet faces in my dreams and I know we will be together again.  God bless all of Viktor’s family.  I will hold you in my heart this weekend as you help Viktor go on to his next life.  Perhaps he will be playing with the little ones who have passed way to soon.  I can just picture him letting a two year old hold by his canines!  He will be blessing everyone in heaven.

    My wife and I have made euthanasia decisions more times than I care to remember.  Did we do it too soon?  Did we wait too long and they suffered?  As a pet owner, it is impossible to feel like you’re doing the right thing at the right time.  It also is the inevitability that goes hand in hand with the joy of having pets in our family.  It will never change.  We have dogs, cats, both, whatever.  We love them.  We deal with their end of life.  And we do it all again. And we’re better for it.

    Glenn,

    Please accept my prayers and my
    sympathy for what you are going through. Dogs are little best friends
    with short life spans. They give us many years of joy, but inevitably
    there is some pain. All we can do is provide them love, safety, and
    some fun and adventure along the way. They are one of the most
    profound gifts from god. I understand that when you relieve Victor of
    his pain you will feel like you are betraying him. Oh, how I felt
    that with my dog RC. But you also know instinctively what’s right,
    and you will have to muster the strength that I know you have to do
    it. You and your family are strong, and you will get through it. You
    will remember the joy and love forever.

    Glenn, we went through the same thing 1 year ago. Our dog was almost 17 years old. We had to finally put her down because her hips gave out. Such a hard decision. I held her when they put her to sleep and felt the life slip from her body as she slowly closed her eyes. Wisper in Victor’s s ear that you love him and you will see him again. He is part of the family and families are forever! My prayers and thoughts are with you!

    I’ll say a prayer for you and your family for the passing of Victor.  As I listened to you this morning, it brought a painful memory of Duke.  He was a resemblance of Victor, a pure bred German Shepherd, and he was the best friend one could have. I loss him on Sept 12, 2010, and I still miss him up to this day.  I made a memorial posting on my blog at http://gunawan.net/blogn/in-loving-memory-of-duke

    Be strong, Glenn!

    It has been exactly 1 year and 1 month ago that we went through what you will be going through tomorrow. Like Victor, our Alex had ups and downs –  We had many days of wondering if we were playing God, but ultimately we knew in our hearts it was the right thing to do.  Looking back, we believe that the ups and downs were her way of preparing us to make the decision that we made.  We went as a family, and as hard as it was for my young boys, it was important for them to be able to say goodbye.  My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family tomorrow.  It is hard, but you will be ending the suffering of a beloved member of your family and, of course, all dogs go to Heaven….Dog is God spelled backwards for a reason…he is a reflection of God’s love, the love you can count on in the comming months/years.  God bless you and your family.

    Glenn, My husband and myself were crying right along side of you today.  We also have a purebred German Shepherd.  She holds our hearts. My pets usually live to be 18 or 20 years old if in good health and I did not know that a shepherds life spand is 10yrs to 12years. Our big girl has just turned 8yrs. old and  we know we will also have to let her go over rainbow bridge. There is nothing anyone can say to relieve your and your families pain.Victor was your friend, and guardian, a teacher and caregiver of your family and would  have gladly gave his life for you. They give us so much love and happiness and the memories we have are precious to us. I hold my pets in my arms  as the procedure is done. I tell them how much they are loved and it is ok to go on. I think of them as they were young running, and playing and not in pain anymore. As hard as it was for you and your family to make the decision you have done the right thing. One day you will feel his sprit brush lightly against you and in your mind and in your heart  you will know he is still with you, still your guardian, your teacher and caregiver. My heart is heavy for you and your family and my prayers are with you. Sue

    This is for the Beck family and dedicated to Victor V:  “The Rite of Passage written by a Veterinarian” Some of the most poignant moments I spent as a veterinarian are those spent with my clients assisting the transition of my animal patients from this world to the next. When living becomes a burden, whether from pain or loss of normal functions, I can help a family by ensuring that their beloved pet has an easy passing. Making this final decision is painful, and I have often felt powerless to comfort the grieving owners.That was before I met Shane. I had been called to examine a ten-year-old blue heeler named Belker who had developed a serious health problem. The dog’s owners – Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane – were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.I told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for the four- year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt Shane could learn something from the experience.The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on.Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.”Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me – I’d never heard a more comforting explanation.He said, “Everybody is born so that they can learn how to live a good life – like loving everybody and being nice, right?” The four-year-old continued, “Well, animals already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”The Beck family will be in my thoughts and prayers this week-end while they help Victor make his transistion to the after life.Regrets, Jackie Bowman

    Dear Glenn and family,
    I am sure you are getting more stories than you can read but I have felt the need to tell you one more all week.  When our son, Ryan, left to serve a 2 year mission in Mexico, he left his beloved 10year old brown lab, Molly, behind. Each week he would send us an email and at the end of each letter he would write: “how’s Molly” or “tell Molly I miss her”. I would then turn to Molly and tell her that she had to live until he came home. Then if she needed to leave she could.  The 2 years past and Ryan wrote his last email. At the end he wrote”tell Molly I’m coming”. Their reunion was glorious, Molly couldn’t stop dancing.  They had 2 happy, healthy weeks together before Molly got sick.  She was sick for about a week and then she died – having completed what she was asked to do.  She died on my birthday.  I now think of it as our day – mine and Molly’s.  It’s been 4 years and I still cry everytime I share this story.  My very best to you all.  Dogs are God’s gift to us.  They make us be better people.Karen Slaugh

    I want to start by saying I was listening to you this morning talking about Victor.  For the record its really hard to drive and cry.  I know how hard it is for your family, we have several rescues and over the years we’ve had to make the hard decisions too. The questions and doubt.  Feeling like your playing God, by taking their life, wondering if your giving up to soon, looking at them and feeling like your betraying them because of the action your having to take.  I love my vet, and I know if there was any hope he would tell me.  But I also know that when he says it would be best to put them down, he’s giving his professional opinion out of love.  Love for the animal and the family.  I’m sure that you’ve consulted your vet, and he wouldnt agree to put him down if there was any hope.  Take what comfort you can in that. He’ll always be with you in your memories until you meet again.  My heart aches for you and your family, and I’ll be praying for you, your family and Victor.  Get strength from God, and know that there are millions of us standing behind you for strength and comfort.

     Do you think God does not love all his creation.  The Word’s and Instruction’s that were gathered together in a short synopsis called the Bible and abridgment of records of men since Prophets were on the Earth are for MEN to obey  The bible was not written for animal’s (they can’t read).  Animal’s can’t SIN therefore they don’t need redemption.

    God bless you and your family, and Victor, Glenn. My prayers are with you. We just experienced the same heartbreak back in November of last year.

    Glenn,  I am so sorry for your loss.  We had to put our beloved, Houdini, down last year.  He was 16 years old and was the best dog ever.  He was my constant, loving companion and I miss and cry about him every day.  But, just remember how fortunate Victor and Hootie were to have such loving homes.  I pray that you will find comfort in the joyous memories you have.  We will all meet again under the Rainbow Bridge.  My thoughts are with you and your family.

    As you and your family suffer over the loss of your sweet friend, I’m crying with you and praying that our Lord will comfort you through the processs of your healing. I believe with you, that you all will see him again. God is a God of restoration. He will do for all of His children that which he did for Job! It is a promise! As days pass, and each of you move through the other side of the pain that you are now feeling, you will be able to celebrate the times you had with Victor. And fond memories will not be pierced with pain but instead with joy. Praying to that end. God Bless!

    Glenn, Tania, and kids:

    I just wanted to take a moment to say that my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers are with you 
    during this heart-wrenching time.

    I know where you are emotionally, I’ve been there myself, a few times, and it’s never easy.

    I really think that our four-legged family members hang on, not so much to life, but rather 
    to US, simply because they know we’re not going, and they want to stay and be with us.

    I don’t believe that God would allow us such devoted, unconditionally loving friends only 
    for a short time on Earth, then be just gone.  I believe that our beloved ‘pets’ have their own 
    special corner of heaven where they are young and full of energy, playing with each other, waiting for a joyous reunion with us.

    I know that Victor will always be with you, in your hearts, and in your fond memories.

    May God bless you all, and give you comfort in the days ahead.

    Liberals don’t attack Judaism?  What are you smoking, lol?  Liberals have been attacking Judaism since day 1.  Where do you think Obama’s belief that Israel should cede land to Palestine comes from?

    What a fool you are.  NO ONE died because of Glenn Beck or George Bush.  Those 100,000 Iraqis died because of IRAQI TERRORISTS.  Those 100,000 Iraqis died NOT because of Beck and Bush.  They died because of IRAQI TERRORISTS WHO LIVE IN IRAQ.  Man, you really are an ignorant cretin.

    Not quite billions, lol.  Of the approximately 7.5 billion people on the entire planet, about 1.8 billion are Muslim.  Another approximately 2.4 billion are Christian.  As for needing forgiveness for supporting mass murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis  all in the name of DOCUMENTED WMD FACTS pushed by EVERY SINGLE GOVERNMENT ON THE ENTIRE PLANET, well, since the MUSLIM IRAQI TERRORISTS are actually the ones who are ACTUALLY responsible for the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis, I don’t need to seek forgiveness for that.  The ACTUAL MUSLIMS WHO ACTUALLY KILLED THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT IRAQIS are the ones who need to seek forgiveness for that.

    Man, quit being an ignorant cretin and start looking at DOCUMENTED HISTORICAL FACTS for once.  You might learn a thing or two.  We did NOT cheer mass murder and butchery of people who did nothing to us.  We cheered bringing those who KILLED THOUSANDS OF OUR OWN to justice.  You see, those you claimed have done nothing to us killed 3,000 INNOCENT lives, not all of them American lives mind you, in an act of terrorism on 1 single day.  That doesn’t include the thousands, tens of thousand, hundreds of thousands of innocent lives also taken globally by those you claim who did nothing to us.  Take your ignorance back to where it belongs cretin.

    Glen and Family, in the year 2011 we lost 3 dogs. one very sudden to cancer, one 5 months ladder to kidney disease, and and one 6 months later to another type of cancer. the pain was so great. and I felt that no one understood. because to most people they were just dogs. but to me and my family they were family. your story has truely touched me. I do believe that dogs (animals) go to heaven. why would God give something so wicked as a human being the wonderful gift of grace, and then not allow something so sinless as an animal into heaven. besides God, a dog is the only thing that loves you unconditionally. In the beginning God created all things. the human being is the one that sinned in the garden. Not the animals. we needed an savior. they did not, Because they were and still are sinless. Love you and your family. you are in our prayers. Getting another dog will not replace Victor, but it helps you heel.
    There are so many out there that are abused and in need of a loving home. Sincerely, Kara

    Mr Beck, You and your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I know all to well about having to say goodbye to a loved fury family member. My pets are my babies and over the years, I have had to do that very deed to make the decision to let them go as peacefully as possible. Your young children may not understand it now, but in time, they hopefully will come to understand that it was the most selfless act of love for their furry family member. I’m sure, if our pets could talk to us, they would thank us for ending their pain. It is never a easy decision to make, trust me, oh how well I know, but I know that I will see all my loved ones human and furry alike when my time comes and that gives me comfort.
      I look forward to seeing the episode of “The Bible” this Sunday or will make efforts to find other ways. I pray for all those that do not believe in God Our Heavenly Father and Savior. They have no clue what they are missing out on. May God Bless you and your family.

    God be with you & your family at this most difficult time. My prayers & thoughts are with you all. Victor has been blessed with a wonder family full of love. There is no doubt you will all see him again when Jesus calls you home, til then you have wonderful loving memories of your best friend. My heart breaks for you because just 2 weeks ago we had to make this same decision on our 14 year old Pomerainian, she was dieing from liver cancer. It was extremely painful, but to see her suffer was just as painful. I pray for your comfort from God.

    I grieve with you and your family, Glen. I pray for the day when you will be able to celebrate the time you had with your friend to come soon. He’s waiting at that Rainbow Bridge. You’ll see him again.

    God be with you and your family at this time-surely, all dogs go to heaven and on that day, Victor will be waiting for you and will run up and lavish kisses on all of you- As he lies down and is now at peace, I like to think God is saying to Victor-well done you faithful servant-come and lay beside Me.

    , PLEASE HELP US GET THIS MESSAGE OUT.  There is  lovely lady that escaped Hungary during WW2 and we need the country to hear her story! She talked about how similar  the actions of the US govt is compared to what happened in hungary.  Her name is Barbara Bikki and she resides in Palasade Colorado.  She speaks very eloquent, yet absolute matter of fact. She spoke how disarming the Hungarians was the first step to socialism, and capitalism and enslavement.  I know if you hear her story you cant help but get her on the air!  Please help us to get her story out.   Glen

    I’m very sorry for your loss and I wish I could reach out and give all of yuns a hug.  I’ve been through this a lot.  I’ve had many cats who when they got old or sick, I had to let go and it is so hard.  Believe me, it is.  I lost a kitty in October, she was the last kitten of the 3 kitten litter we took in along with their mother back in 2001.  We only have Mom and an “adopted” male kitty left now.  Try reading the poem, “The Rainbow Bridge,”  where all the pets go, they are made whole again, play and have a good time while waiting to be reunited with you.  I even had a vivid dream where one of my cats came back and told me that, “you did what you could and you did it out of love.  We will always be with you and one day we will all be together again.”  He also told me, “there is a God.”  When I get bummed about it, I think of this dream.

    I am sorry for the loss of your friend Victor. My wife and I had to put down our 23 uear old poodle, Sammie Claws last October. It is hard to lose a loved one that has been part of your family. We will keep you in our prayers, and we also hope to see him, and or other poodle, Parker in heaven when we get there. Both dogs were good friends, and both are missed. It is a tough decision, and it  breaks your heart.
     We watched the Bible series, and I know that it got a lot of bad press. But I belive that GOD will use it to touch lives, and bring people to Christ. The media attacks anything that they don’t understand, or are afraid of. Christ’s answer is too simple, and it causes people to miss it. Salvation is personal between you and Christ. It is free, and you decide if you want it or not. That is part of the problem, and the other part is that it will change your life for the better. And most of us fear change. We fear the loss of friends, and our routine.

    We lost our jobs several years ago, and we had to move due to my new job. It was tough, but GOD is blessing us with new friends, and new oportunities.

    May God continue to bless you, and comfort your family during this time.
