    I'm so sorry you lost your friend. It's amazing how close we can get to our 4 legged pals... the house will sure seem empty for a while. I dread the day when our dog Casey has to make the step over too.

    It is amazing how our four-legged friends end up being so dear to our hearts. Mark Levine, a constitutional scholar and talk show host, recently wrote a book called, Rescuing Sprite. Their dog Sprite had died recently, and Mark was devastated, and he wrote a great book about it.

    Like Brian, I am not eager for the day when my dogs, have to make that trip. Sorry for your loss. Check out Mark's book.

  • Thanks for all the sympathy and kind words from my fellow bloggers. To all my email buddies and family, thanks for your support.

    We were able to bring Sunshine home - in a little plastic box. But I am grateful the pet service was available.

    I also went to and added her to the list of pets lost. They have an on-line service each Monday evening at 9 p.m. Central time to support those grieving pet owners and for those with ill pets as well.

    That might not be everyone's cup of tea but it is comforting to know that there are others grieving the loss of their pets and it is okay to be sad.
