PP: Amen! A bit of a rough way of saying it.but nothing pisses me off more than people dropping their dogs off at the shelter because "the kids are allergic to it." Or if you just get tired of the dog and tell the kids it died.
I love my doggies even if their not here in the physical world. So, yeah, your dog is there for you always. And I love my new puppies too, so do what this says and thank whatever pet you have for being there with you, through everything.
