    Thanks to everyone for their condolences.

    Lady had been diagnosed with bone cancer a year ago, and when they did X-rays to check her abdomen they found masses between her liver and pancreas. While it wasn't a surprise to us that it was her time to go, it was a shock that she went downhill so quickly. She started having serious issues last Friday, and by Tuesday I knew it wasn't going to be long.
    Since we've had both types of events I've found that it doesn't matter whether you know or not - you are just not prepared to lose your best friend. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Man,

    I gots the LES here...

    I know nothing will soothe your pain, But I am sorry for your loss. I hope the kids are doing o.k....

    ----------------

    You can never replace love or a pet.
    It seems they always show up on their own.
    Just when you aren't looking?
    They come up beside you,
    engage you
    then steal your heart.

    -------------------

    The funniest lines about love and pets?

    I'll never fall for that, again!!!

    Just when you gain your feet,
    you find yourself brushing yourself off

    "Boy, did I fall hard and fast....."

    ------------------

    Play hard Lady.....you are free now.

    When I went to work Wednesday night, knowing it was probably Lady's last day, I told one of my co-workers when they asked how I was doing, "Not bad, I just probably have to go amputate my right hand tomorrow". Not being pet people, they didn't get it, and I just couldn't explain.

    LH, your initial posting is a beautiful one.

    I am sorry to learn this news, very sorry for your loss, LH and LOH, and family. Lady has been a fixture here on PT. This is always a difficult time, whether you know or are caught unaware. Give yourselves time, time to grieve, time to remember, time to miss her.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    When we lost two pets within a three month span, several people at my work were just so confused. They are just dogs......REALLY?!? No, they were furry family members and I grieved them as such. I still miss them and it's been over 3 years ago. I agree, non-pet people don't get it at all.

    I have to give credit where credit is due, it's an exerpt from a poem by Rudyard Kipling, "The Power of The Dog".
