I love my buddy, Duke.  I love him despite the muddy paw prints every day, the dog hair, the constant need for exercise and dog park trips, and the occasional misbehaving.  I just read on Facebook that someone is having to put their Lab down in the morning due to a brain tumor.  It gave me pause to appreciate that Duke is healthy and silly, but has a limited time with us.  I think everyone needs a four-legged friend in their lives.

I completely agree, you just don't know what it's like until you have your own! I never understood it at all before Luna and I think of this post as my thoughts exactly, replacing Duke with Luna and His with Hers! Ha

I get so sad to think of how short a Golden's life i,that her time with us is short compared to our lives... and it makes me appreciate her so much more, even when she is dragging used paper towels out of the garbage can after dinner ;)
