"Dogs' lives are too short. Their only fault, really."

Translation: All dogs go to Heaven.

My usual wit and charm will be missing from this post, because I am experiencing the day every pet owner dreads...our beloved rat terrier, Pete, had to be put down this morning.

I knew this loss would hit me hard, but I feel like a part of me is gone forever. That little innocent corner in my heart that so belonged to that dog aches. We're a dog family alright, and anyone else who has lost a pet or ever read "Marley & Me" and wept openly, knows exactly how I am feeling right now. Every where I turn I see him in our home. While it was his time, I don't think I ever could have prepared to let him go.

For 13 years Pete was my best friend, the funniest little dog on the planet, and the only boy I ever loved who never broke my heart. My family and I will miss him more than words can describe. Rest in peace, Petey.


  1. I am holding back tears, it is never time to lose a dog they just don't live long enough.

  2. they really do not. I still miss him like he were here yesterday.


Please indulge me, and leave a little feedback! I like knowing I'm not the only person in the world with thoughts this random. You are not required to be on blogger to comment, or registered in any way. Also, I got rid of that annoying Captcha (I'm convinced it was created by the devil).
