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.
