Lost another friend yesterday
« on: November 20, 2011, 03:08:47 PM »


Punkin was the alpha dog of the pack.  A square-jawed pup that was all attitude.  She will be missed mightily.  She was the third one this year.

Sorry to hear this. Three this year, tough stuff.  :(  RIP Punkin, raising a pint right now for you.

Three - Wow!  That has to be tough.  Pets are family to us.

Back in 2003 we lost our 2 cats within 10 days of each other.  We were crushed by this.  You must be too.  Hang in there.

Oh, man, I'm so sorry.  We had Border Collies who were about the same age and lost them all in one year.  It's incredibly tough.  My condolences to you.
