If you've had a pet die, esp, one you've had for a long time you know how Laura feels.
Our Cocker Spaniel is 13 now and though still mostly healthy she's getting those near the end of life things elderly dogs get- benign fatty tumors, frequent ear infections, flaky skin and has slowed down a lot. I'm not looking forward to the morning when I wake and I have to break the news of her passing to Christie. I hope it's a few years off.
