Straight from the Heart

One of my Facebook friends posted today about having to have her 17-year-old dog euthanized. My heart almost broke. Our human babies grow to be children and, eventually, adults, and much of our parental obligation becomes their own. Not so with our animal children who need us as much or more on the last day we have them as they did on the first. Needless to say, I've given my three animals an extra stroking or two today in honor of a Shiba Inu named Abby.

  1. I don't know your friend, but my heart is aching for her all the same.
