Furry Paws Pattering Down Memory Lane

I recently got an email from a dear friend telling me they had to put down their beloved yellow lab, Buddy.  He was 12 years old, and along with his grieving owners, he leaves behind his little pal, Hunter, who’s going to be lost without him.

R.I.P. Buddy.  We’ll miss your enthusiastic welcomes and your late night visits to our bed.

Anyone who owns an animal will likely have to face this heartbreaking scenario at some point in their pet’s life.  For me, an avid animal lover, I’ve been there, done that, far too many times.  The most recent two months ago, when we had to say goodbye to Sweetie.  It never gets easier.  My friend said it sucked and he felt bummed out.  I agree completely, it really sucks and you feel totally bummed out.

I have a framed collage on my wall leading downstairs.  In it is a photo of almost every pet I’ve had the pleasure of sharing a part of my life with.  Some shared many years, some much less, but they all hold a place in my heart and my memories.  I’ve decided to take a fun and furry walk down memory lane and every weekend I’ll shine the spotlight on one of my beloved pets.
