Am not ready Stan, I know it's been coming, but I am not ready. I've had her 11 years now, and she is never not at my side. I got her from a shelter, and all dogs there were puppies or 7+, so she could be 17 tops. I think she is really in the 14-15 range.
Am just not ready to lose her. She's my best friend, always at my side, can read every emotion I have and react accordingly.
I don't have to ask her to do something, I haven't for years, she just does it, as she knows what I want her to do. In my house, that's not easy, but I don't leave the kids with the dogs if I go to the bathroom, that's rough to walk past the cat litter room, I have to hold Wink. I don't with Tala, she just does what she should do.
Maybe to the farmer types, it's just a dog, but to me, she's been my best friend for the past 11 years, and I can't stop crying.
And it's not even time yet, but it's coming soon.
