It's a cold fact knowing that a pet's longevity is so short.

Even getting a pet at one-day-old means you have a decade and a half...If you're lucky...and that clock is always ticking...

Although its incredibly hard to think like this at this time, think of all of the good times Gretch not only had, but provided...For the love given (and received), I'd say "Mission Accomplished"...

Sorry to hear this Saltwn.

I love dogs, have 3 of them here on the farm.

I've been were you are many times. We love them while we have them. Then we miss them when they are gone.

They bring us joy, and happiness. Simple pleasures...

Regards, Kirk

I don't know if there is a dog heaven or a pet heaven or even one for animals at all. But, I just cannot imagine calling a place heaven without them.

At my age, I know the hurt when they go.

So sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss,certainly Gretchen is in a much better place where there is no pain and lot's of tasty bacon. She will always remember the love and care you gave her.
