The hardest part about owning a pet....

you know you will out live them.

Today my husband had to put to sleep his black lab. He got Disco when he was in college and it was my husband's very first pet..l. well besides the ones he had when living with his parents.

"It's not the full-stop at the end of the book that is important, it is the story inside", is what my sister wrote to me last year when my collie Diva had to be put to sleep after fourteen years. I am sure that Disco, like Diva, was a darn good read.
This is so hard. Those paw prints are so painful on our hearts.

That breaks my heart to even think of losing either one of my boys. My condolences to your hubby for losing Disco.

i would think it is a blessing that we outlived them. i have many of my dogs outlived me, more than 10 during the last few years. i m glad it is the other way round where they are left unattended if i died.
