I have a special place in my heart for dogs. I have had some very special dogs in my lifetime. Right now I have two special dogs, I have a chocolate lab and a boxer. My boxer is getting up in years and she doesn't have very many years left but I love her very dearly. My lab is a bit younger but I still love him as well.
I had a Dalmatian for many years and he was a great dog. It broke my heart when he died but I still have all the memories of his life. He went camping with us many times and was a wonderful dog. I trained him from a pup and he was a very special dog.
I had or still have I am not sure which, a friend in Virginia who lost her dog and it was a very hard time. I remember how hard it hit her when he died. It is always hard when you lose a pet to death. For those who have dogs they love dearly they are part of the family and in many cases are like a child. If they die it is like losing a member of your family. As a matter of fact it is losing a part of your family as they are part of your life and your family.
If you have a dog I am sure that you love him or her very much. Remember that these wonderful animals love us unconditionally and their love never wavers.
Have a great day and if you don't have a pet you are missing out on a very special connection.
