I think loosing a pet is probably one of the hardest things, especially if you have had to make the decision yourself. Over the years I have had so say goodbye to 1 dog (Bruce) and 10 cats (Minky, Tabbatha, Bungle, Spike, Tubs, Titch, Shrimp, Lumpy, Timi & Tuffy) and each and every one bought me to tears both at 'that' time, leading up to it, and a long time afterwards, and even as I write this, the same is happening. Most were my decision, some were not. But the pain of parting does go and hide in the background eventually, only to surface as a reminder of just how much they meant to me. Now, most of the thoughts are happy ones, which in itself triggers it again. I actually hope that never goes, I never want to think 'just a cat' with no feelings. They were my family and I loved each and everyone of them. I feel sorry for those people who dont get attached to their pets and show no feelings in difficult times, they have no idea what there missing.
Good luck to all runners this weekend, VLM of otherwise
