This last weekend my friend had to put her little shih tzu Bandit to sleep because of cancer. Age 13. It was really sad. Now today my sister faces the same decision with her cat Newny who has been sickly for a while now and then there is my cat Cuddles who is on borrowed time with her kidneys. It is heartbreaking to have to make the decision to let them go and makes me realize that the time we share with our beloved 4 legged friends is NEVER long enough. Love them all you can and cherish every minute you have with them. I know I do.
