    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    @Texas Carol

    Once again Carol, you always know what to say… and you are so right!!! We seem to value our material things when really what we MOST crave is those loving relationships w/others… dogs included of course.

    I too have had losses happen so suddenly, and those times change you forever!!! You can never go back… but like w/most difficult things in this life there is always a gift hidden in there somewhere. I honestly feel like it's our job to figure that out, and for you Carol telling your story, supporting, and praying for those who are hurting seems to be your calling.

    "What we once enjoyed and deeply loved, we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Helen Keller
    RIP Wellie, Bella, Winston & Roxie

    failure of unknown cause. He'd had a scheduled checkup & bloodwork done just
    prior to this and had checked out fine. Less than 24 hours later, Tessa & Dave had
    to make that most terrible decision and did so. They recently married and have no
    human kids so y'all can just imagine their pain~Samson was (I think) around 7 y/o.

    Knowing this heartbreak myself, I bawled & prayed with them, when healthy one
    minute and gone the next...it's almost impossible to bear the pain in your heart and
    the sudden emptiness in your home and your life. M vet called to say my Brutus was
    up and moving after anesthesia (to clean infected teeth) and was fine. Fifteen minutes
    later, he was gone. Nothing can prepare you for that nor can any words help the one
    suffering at that moment. They ARE remembered and help so much afterwards but at
    that immediate death, you just shut down...except for how insanely your heart hurts.

    Most of you know that just 5 months before Brutus died so suddenly, I lost my beloved
    husband of 30 wonderful years and just 52. I got him to the ER and he collapsed at their
    admittance desk and was gone, no time to say ONE WORD. They worked on him for two
    hours but I knew he was gone. Because I said nothing and they were fixated on saving
    him no one ushered me from the room just off the ER waiting area where about 150 people
    watched him leave this earth. I always wondered (and hope) it made an impact on them to
    understand how immediate is our time here and how you are gone in the blink of an eye.

    It is LOVE not things, not money, not titles, not stuff, not ego (you get the picture) that is ALL
    we leave behind, it is WHO we are and WHAT we do matters and that lasts. I was always a
    high roller and lived a large life, some of the things I still have...I can tell y'all absolutely, NONE
    of it means a danged thing...NOTHING. I'm just saying, Yes, we need homes, clothing & jobs
    but don't let any of it kill you to acquire it, you really can't take this stuff with you.

    Life is Short, spend time with your loved ones in Love, Faith & Harmony.


    Once again wonderful insight Carol!! Hugs and love!

    sent from my Droid RAZR with love!

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    You're an inspiration Carol. I don't post much but am always on here and see your comments. They're always uplifting and insightful :-) I'm so sorry for the losses you have had. I work in the medical field and worked ER for a few years, now open heart surgery, so I see a lot and have learned a ton about life and how quickly it is taken. Life is precious and is often taken in the blink of an eye, for both our human and furry family members. Keep doing what you do on here, you make a difference :-)
