    Re: My Boy crossed the bridge today...

    We had one of those moments with our dog that made us laugh and go uh oh at the same time. My daughter is 17 months old and in love with the dog. They have become best friends with my daughter looking for her every time she gets up from bed or a nap. The other day my wife text me that my daughter straddled the dog and said "horse."

    Pets make you laugh, cry, yell, shake you head, but in the end make your life better. The mourning is tough, but the memories they provide you last a lifetime.

    I'm old enough that I have gone through this 4 times as a adult. We usually have 2 dogs at a time. And the dogs were 18, 12, 15 and 13, so we had a good run with all of them.

    We now have a 3 year old and a 2.5 year old. They might bury me.

    My point is.... don't forget there are wonderful dogs out there now needing a home. They help ease the pain.

    We will get another dog eventually, but I think we need to wait a while first.

    We did get a kitten in June at the animal shelter, and she is helping ease the pain for us. Unfortunately, she also loved our old dog and seems to miss her.

She will be missed.
    I'm sorry for your loss Spitball. My thoughts are with you and your family.

    We waited a year and a half and it took me a few weeks to totally fall for the new puppy. Now I don't know what I would do without my big goofy Pippah.
