If you've ever lost one, you know you'd give anything to have him or her back.
I think that is how I will feel the moment Samson leaves me. I can't say at this point I would want to clone him but I have a feeling the moment he passes I would wish I could have. I could not possibly put into words the love I have for that little boy, I always tell Samson that he is the love of my life and that he is "my pride and joy, my little boy." I just can't even bare the idea of him not being there, I DREAD the day I will have to deal with losing him. Oh goodness I am tearing up!
I think it's easy to say no when you have your dogs with you and you can't imagine a day without them and I would've probably answered the same way until I lost Bentley. The love outweighs the grief but I would do anything to have my best friend back again, to pet that big head a few more times, to cuddle him on the couch for just a few more minutes after I've put Linus to bed, to have that wet puss rest on my laptop when I'm trying to work...I miss him and would do anything to have him back with me.
Okay, that made me cry too!
