PET TIP:

To lose one of your pets always takes a piece of your heart. Last weekend I had to let Muffet, who was a sweet, gentle little girl, pass over to the Rainbow Bridge. Although I have many animals the loss of one seems to leave a huge gap in my home and heart. Suffering was not on the option list however. Sometimes the kindest, yet hardest thing to do is to put them out of their misery. Always remember it is about them, not you at that time.
