Losing Animal Pals

DangerGirl - My dear old dog was nuzzling me just as I read about yours. We're watching a dear old cat fade; surprised he made it through the night.

I was thinking earlier this morning how they say, nothing's harder than a child dying before the parent. Our animal pals are different in relationship to us, of course, but it's nearly as hard, and over a lifetime we may see (I have seen) so many die.

Remember all the waggy tails and wet nose presses. Good dog.
