I've found nothing hits a Loving,Caring underneath it all Person harder than having to put a Pet Dog or Cat down,let alone finding one who has passed. and dammit,don't confuse my words with losing a Human,especially a Child. I think We All know the place Folks occupy.
But seriously,Pain generated by having to do the right thing has it's own Hell Place in Our Minds. We know what we've gotta do,but it just sucks beyond words. I don't get here very often,but I'm glad I did today,this morning. Leave room in Your torn-up Hearts to take the Love and Companionship You've received,no charge,from an animal that You've Loved and Lost,and roll it into a new animal that is void of that same Love. You've got the time,they've got the Love,and it'll be OK....... Trust a Soft-Hearted Insano such as myself,it will be OK !
