hey Weaze, I'm raising a dram of whisky to Porkchop. So sorry to hear this news, it's always so hard to lose a dog... they worm their way into our hearts & stretch out there, taking all the love we have and giving it back to us over, and over. Don't be afraid to cry for her, it's bulls*** not to.

Sad to hear, pal.

 I've lost several goodun's myself. You just keep the lessons they taught you and carry on.

Raising a pint....

A little off topic but hopefully it will make Weaze grin.

I turned 40 last week and my wife threw me a party (first time I let her have a party for me).  An early arrival to the party was giving some attention to our chocolate lab Darwin (who turns 5 this spring) and noticed how gray his muzzle was turning.  I said "yeah, his life is half over" and my buddy replied "well, so is yours!"  I wasn't trying to be cruel to my dog, just trying to remind myself that I'm gonna have a couple of heart-broken kids in 5 years or so (if I'm lucky).

Washington Irving said,

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of
power. They are messengers of overwhelming grief, and unspeakable love."

"The sorrow for the dead is the only sorrow from which we refuse to be divorced. Every
other wound we seek to heal - every other affliction to forget: but this wound we consider
it a duty to keep open - this affliction we cherish and brood over in solitude. "

Good words. Thank you. I got it all out of my system Monday, driving home from work. I was ok till Holly called. Then, I bawled like a little beotch. I can still hang my hat on the fact she has never seen me break down. But, she did hear one heck of a freak out!  I'm doing a lot better. Still a hige downer, but it's better. Now, Holly, poor girl is not so good. She's never lost a pet. She was never a dog / pet person till she met me. She met thetoy poodle I grew up with, and fell in love with her. Then we got married, and got Porkchop right after. She was all about dogs then. She's never had to deal with it before, where I have, always growing up with a dog. Thnak you all again for your kind words, and thank you for letting me ramble on here. It  has really helped me.

Shouldn't that be "P-p-p-p-p-p-porky P-p-p-p-p-porter" ? :)
