I think you should!!! But then, I'm prejudiced. Today is such a hard day for me. This is my last day with my pup of 11 years. She will be making her final visit to the vet tonight. We knew this was coming as she has been in failing health for months now, and we were just trying to make it through the holidays before having to do this. 11 years ago my hubby boarded a plane from PA to FL to go and bring her home to me and tonight, he will be the one with her as she leaves us. This is the 3rd pet we have lost in as many years, all who had been with us for 10+ years. Please keep my sweet Dody in your thoughts today. This is a photo taken on her first day with us..... Oh Mama, I know this is hard for you! But I love her name...when I was a kid (young) my grandparents had a pet shop...and had a monkey named Dody!
