Life with Dogs

I am always amazed at how dogs approach life. From the moment they wake up they are enjoying every moment, taking time for play and bonding. Then giving themselves the much needed rest they require. My dogs are my "fur kids" and the love they give me is unconditional. Yesterday, a friend told me she had decided to put her dog "Bo" to sleep. I have been in that same position with my dear dog Dante. After a wonderful life together, he could no longer get up and come to me and had lost the quality of life he deserved so much. When I looked into his eyes that last day, he told me to let him go. It was one of the hardest things to do in my life. I could never replace him, but soon I got Socks, then Ty. Now I am almost whole again...though a tiny piece of my heart is always with all my dogs. I cherish their memories and know they are over the Rainbow Bridge.
