Sorry for your loss mayne, I've never had to deal with losing an animal but I can only imagine what it feels like
I used to play football back in HS and everyday I'd take my bike home from practice. One day it was raining as I was going along my normal route home and I noticed the most trillest dog hiding under a car to keep from the rain, so I grabbed her and checked for a collar which it didn't have.
I still remember grabbing her and getting back on my bike...and bolting it back home like lance armstrong with my backpack flipped over and my dog inside of it..in the rain! Haha
Crazy shit it is this was 5 years ago!
and ever since then she's been part of the family
It's pretty crazy how pets can bring joy to us,
You just gotta remember the good times is all mayne, things come and they go...but it's always the memories that you've had that live on forever.
