Helluva thread. Thanks for sharing all that.
I cried like a little baby today reading this, thanks for that too. It was like reading Marley & Me, or Where the Red Fern Grows, I knew how it was
going to turn out and I still bawled like little child. I feel your pain as I've had numerous pets over the years and their demises have all sucked.
No need for stories but I can also feel your pain with your new puppy. I've had boxers and they are good at chewing. One really liked a desert
tortoise we had and tried to chew it out of it's shell while we were gone.
Poor tortoise didn't have a chance. Neither did any sofas, windowsills, coffee tables, anything that might resemble something that could be called
food, heck, pretty much anything.
We here just took in a old labrador, about ten or eleven a week or so ago. She'd been passed around and I wasn't really keen on another dog right
now as I would have to do most of the work but this girl is twenty or so pounds overweight and basically sleeps. Doesn't get around very well which
makes life around here easier.
She likes belly rubs, which is fine by me. I can provide them.
Good luck with Lucie. Luck may not be the word, patience is more like it.
