We didn't have him for long, and adopting senior dogs can be hard because you do lose them sooner, but I just think it is the most amazing gift you could ever give a dog. And every tear I've ever cried over his illness and passing has been worth it ten fold. No, make it 100 fold.
Thank you, and the same back at you
Scooter (my avatar) was only with us two years. Way worth it.
