Thanks, sometimes it is easiest to just let go, of the pains, you know. They would have liked you. I will let their family know you and the rest said "You are sorry." I am sure they will be most appreciative. It is so painful when something like this happens to someone you know, you know what I mean?

I send the same back to you ((((((((TomServo)))))))) and ((((((((maryanimal)))))))).
Yes it is really me.

Doc i think that is a most excellent idea.
Thank you to everyone for the support. It is amazing how much this helps.

Just got done burying an old friend.

Mr. Riff

Him and his sister Mz Rafias showed up about 15 years ago
as a couple of hungry fur balls looking for milk.

Good old kitty.
Mom is going to miss him.

My best friends pup Wil went off leah last week. We can't even meet for coffee without tearing up.. He was a work/service dog and a love. His two house siblings "cats" miss and look for him.. They do not want to understand he is not here anymore..

I don't remember what comedian said this "We set ourselves up for heartbreak the moment we get a pet"

Which is true, but for some reason we keep getting them...

ahh you ol softy :) Our last dog we got (a pit-mix), my son brought home from the city pound. She was 5 weeks old when he brought her home and I think she and her siblings were headed for doom. I told him "no" when he asked if he could bring her home. Obviously my "no" didn't carry any weight :lol: That's okay she is my dog now and is wonderful security. She sounds like she will eat you if you come up to the door, but she is really just a big sweetheart who loves people, other dogs not so much. It was quite an adjustment when she got big and became the alpha dog over my 2 pugs. We are just one big happy family now...

Well, at least you accepted them both and cared for him as best you could.
Unfortunately, many people in this world wouldn't have.

Very spooky. Monday we were coming back from a weekend trip and as we passed the area where Jerry lived my wife asked about him. I said it's been over a year since we last saw each other, think I'll give him a call so we can connect for a beer or two. The next day on Facebook someone asked about Jerry and that was when I found out that he had passed away a year ago last March. Jerry was a true Desert Rat and had a lot of addictions/problems but when you got to know him, he was actually a very intelligent and nice guy.

My brother's dog Chloe (some sort of "wolf" and husky mix) is getting a little old. She's the coolest and most relaxed dog I ever met, with an excellent sense of humor.

When I talk to her, which I did a lot when I moved here, she looks at me with an expression that suggests "dude, I'm a dog. Do you expect me to answer or something?"

She's getting a little old and has some arthritis in her pelvis. She's my only friend in San Antonio and is always stoked to see me, even if my asshole twin brother is not.

It's really sad thinking of her dying, I'm getting a little misty here at work. Parents? Aunts and uncles? Well, they're old and lived long lives and I'm not terribly close with them.

But, Chloe? I'm going to really lose my shit when she goes, hopefully a few years from now.

A friend of mine gets bad blood clots in her legs. Any one of them can kill her. I know this but I never say anything. When she was in the hospital a lot, I did my best to be there first and the last to leave. She hasa hard life, some of it is her doing but most of it is not -- all sorts of fucked up things happen to her.

Some dude punched her in the face 10 years ago, when they X-rayed her broken nose, they found a brain tumor.

That's not a loss, and I don't mean to minimize anyone's loss.

One of the neighbor's little calicos was dead in my driveway this morning. Sweet little cat, being fostered with her siblings until a new home was found for them. Not a mark on her. She hung out in my yard a lot, so while she wasn't a petting kitty for me, she was a part of the neighborhood. So, car? Poison? Another animal?
I do wish Rowena would keep them indoors, she lost Mr. Christopher last year, and Maynard has moved on to a new family (we hope). I worry about Baby, I know she wanders across the street looking for the chow the other neighbors put out for their kitty (who stays out during the day).
Indoor kitties, people! Indoors!

For Super Evil Brian and dog lovers- It is possible this has been mentioned in the previous many posts? Some things are worth repeating, revisiting. Google or use this link to read - A Dogs Purpose -from a 6-year old- http://blog.porchpotty.com/a-dogs-purpo ... -year-old/ I keep a copy near.

RIP Gilbert A "Jorg" Voss. After battling prostate and colon cancer. One of my best friends since 1977. Gil taught me about shamanism, plants and cooking. I am greater for having known you, Jorg, and the world is dimmer for having lost you.

My grandma passed away last month. She was one of the most kind souls I ever knew. She was in a lot of physical pain, and I'm glad she's finally free from the suffering of her body. But she will certainly be missed here on Earth. <3
