I clearly missed the date tagline – obliviousness is one of my sometimes endearing/sometimes infuruating “qualities” – alas
My deepest condolances (I always seemed to take the loss of a dog as hard as the loss of a human family member – sometimes worse with some of my family) I am only able to take partial solace in a dog that lives to ripe old age looking good and being in relatively good condition and health until near the end
Thank you Ken. Obliviousness? Yours truly is the living breathing definition of the word:-) As for old age and health, just as with humans, the former is often the enemy of the latter…Still, always beats the hell out of the alternative, I think.
AS one of my friends likes to say – everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to go immediately
Old age and health do eventually diverge – my mother in law is back in the hospital for the 5th time this year – they have now identified some masses and we are sweating out the initial oncology tests.
