Ridin' the Rescue Roller Coaster of Love...

The dreaded C word...

strikes so many of our Dogster friends over time. Sometimes our pals have led a full and happy life when they get the word. Sometimes it strikes when life has barely begun. Some breeds, like Golden Retrievers, have a terrible survival rate. Some pups fight the good fight and win many more years with those who love them. Some pups never get that chance.

So hug your pups and cherish every second with them. Life is too, too short... and the life of dogs even shorter. In the words of Sir Walter Scott

"I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time?"

I couldn't even begin to imagine...
