Burning myself on my lunch dish. Made worse that I could have avoided it. :rolleyes:

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled

Oh Diane :(
I'm so sorry for your loss......Dogs demand so little and yet give us so much joy and all done with such love. Unlike people there is no 'what's in it for me.' They just love their families with all their heart.

Bec :( PS: I am sure there is a doggy heaven :) .

So sorry to hear about Siddy, Diane. It's heartbreaking to lose a beloved pet. Thinking of you.

So sorry to hear about Siddy, Diane. It sounds like she had great life, but that doesn't make up for the hole she leaves behind. Hugs and healing thoughts.
