My heart hurts

“The risk of love is loss, and the price of loss is grief. But the pain of grief is only a shadow when compared with the pain of never risking love.”

(Hilary Stanton Zunin)

This is beautiful, and so very true Phyllis....

My first dog Sam, a yellow lab, was very special to me. When he passed away I was already married and was living in another country. The pain I felt was so intense, it was like a part of me had died with him. And to this day, there isn't a week I don't think of him.

Dogs are very special creatures. All they give us is company and unconditional love. I'm sure Brandy is at a beautiful place right now. You gave her the best life she could ever get and she gave you a lifetime of wonderful memories.

That's a beautiful quote, Phyllis. I'm so sorry to hear about Brandy, she sounded very special. My thoughts are with you!
