One Dog Down

The senior member of our Old Dogs Club passed on yesterday. It was a very sad day in our home. Lucky turned 14 this month. There is a hole in our hearts. She will be missed.

Winter can be pretty rough on old people and old dogs.

I'm so sorry to hear. Our family gerbil passed away on Christmas Eve and my grandmother died in October. Cold weather is very tough on the elderly. My thoughts are with your family.

I think that one thing we all have trouble coming to terms with is the transience of life. We are each only here for a short time, and then we move on to somthing else. It's a tragedy for those left behind...what is it for those who are moving on?

Put's things in perspective, doesn't it?

"Oh oh oh, Don't you know that you are a shooting star,
Don't you know, yeah, don't you know', Don't you know that
you are a shooting star,
Don't you know, yeah,
Don't you know that you are a shooting star,
Don't you, don't you,
don't you, don't you,
Don't you know, don't you
know, oh, yeah, you are,

Yeah, a shooting star, yeah, oh
oh oh oh oh......
Don't you, don't you know
that you are a shooting star,
don't you know....?

My condolences on your loss.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Brian came home and told me after he saw you Wed. night on his walk with Bailey. These are going to be tough times ahead for our neighborhood with all of our Old Dogs Club members. - Bailey and the rest of the Casto clan

So sorry to hear. Our Golden Lab/Greyhound mix just turned 16, and this winter has been very hard on her. If she makes it through, we're pretty sure she'll see 17.
