loss



Our pets are our family and it's devastating to let them go. This morning, we made the heartbreaking decision to put our wonderful dog Zorro to sleep, who was losing a battle with osteosarcoma. We could not have asked for a more loving, intelligent or protective friend. His obsession with tennis balls was unmatched. His enthusiasm for carrots unparalleled. He was loved deeply and we already miss him.

Sorry Zaza. I also let a good friend of 11 years go recently. It is amazing how pets become part of the family.

My most sincere thoughts & prayers. You are obviously a wonderful pet owner and I hope you will adopt someone at the shelter who needs YOU.

Thank you everyone for your kind words.

There's an emptiness in the house now— it's going to take a while to get used to it. I know it was the right decision, but it doesn't make me feel much better.

Animals make life so much more wonderful.
