Death of Beloved Animals Hurts Because We Love Well

Every pet lover has wondered how they will get over the pain,
when the time comes for losing such a love.
[When i found myself crying a lot, for a long time, after the loss of Sweeney, i remember i called my grandmother--wise and full of love -- one night and told her,
 "I just can't stop being sad-- i cry whenever i think about her."
 She told me that Someday it would stop, but for now, just go ahead and cry.]

"I have sometimes thought
of the final cause of dogs having such short lives
  and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race;
for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance
of ten to twelve years, what would it be if they were to double?"
Sir Walter Scott

There is a wonderful website i have referred you to before, on the German Shorthair post here:

and now,
i want to remind you to go there again.
Among the many amazing and truly transparent, life-lesson posts
(the humor of the mundane as well),
Read a poignant story regarding
 these two:

the entire website is a delight.
