    Hey I'm really sorry to read that, but I'm sure you had unconditional love from it and wouldn't have missed having them for the world. Just think back to all the fun times you had together. Do you have lots of photos to remind you? I have a 7 yo Jack Russell and am making sure I have lots to remember him by in case anything happens. God bless you at this sad time.

    Sorry to hear the news, Zapp. I even thought of putting up a similar post myself on December 3, as we had to put our old buddy/cat of 15 years down. It was pretty crushing.

    My sympathies.

    I also had to do this years ago and it was very difficult. In life, we must risk the lows if we want to hit the highs. We can hide from life and be safe, or we can go for it and win some and lose some.

    There's a scene in the movie Parenthood where the Grandma, whom everyone thinks is senile, starts talking about when her husband used to take her to the fair. She says that most people enjoyed the merry-go-round but she preferred the roller coaster. She says that instead of just being safe and going around in circles, she'd rather be a little scared, but know she's been on a real ride. By the end of her speech, it's obvious that she's making a profound statement about life.
