Our older daughter's long-time pet had to be put to sleep last night. They were constant companions for nearly half her life, and it's tough. She's taking it rather hard, which is only normal.
She's a tough young lady, but has a tender heart. I don't want to be maudlin, and won't dwell on it, here. Our concern is for her right now.
There's plenty of fresh material on the sidebar, and lots of good folks have interesting, thought-provoking things to say. Check them out. :)
Thanks for stopping by, friends. I'll be back later.
