Early on when you get a pet you’re aware she won’t be with you forever. Then there comes a point when you can’t imagine your household without her.
We all start hoping that ours is the one who will beat the odds; last forever. Or even outlast us. Chances are that won’t happen, and then we have to live with the loss. It can be too sad.
I’ve come to believe the best thing for us humans is to find another companion quickly. It helps take away the sadness.
Take care, ami.
