When Tucker and Sophie first met, he didn't have a clue what she was. He was happy to met her, but immediately it was evident, this wee little dog, was in totally and complete control. He was the stooge, she was the Queen. And so it has stayed to this day.
But today when I sat in the Vet's office and Tucker was taken into the other room to have his cast changed, we had Sophie with us to wait. It wasn't until then I realized just how much she NEEDS Tucker. She was so distressed that she not only whined, she wailed and paced and cried. I tried to take a video, but it doesn't really capture the pain of it all. The are literally inseparable.
We become so attached to the people and pets we love that sometimes to be without them is inconceivable. We are not consolable. We cannot function. we pace, and cry and don't know what to do. We want them to come back into the room and fill our empty hearts. Some people hide themselves away and stop our lives completely.
For some lives go on, and some times are filled with other things, but there will always be a spot that is missing, reserved for that treasured being, an ache that becomes dull but is always there.
Its incumbent upon us to keep those we love well and with us for as long as possible. As a parent or a pet owner, you care for their health, feed and keep them warm and safe. As people that are loved, it is important to do everything we can, for ourselves, to be around for as long as we can....
I have a question for you... When was your last physical? If your are a woman, when was your last mammogram. Have you done a self Breast exam ?
If I had not done this I would be dead today.
Your life is about more than just you. It is also about those people who love you. Take care of yourself like you would take care of them. You owe it to them to do all you can. they owe it to you to do the same. Here's to long lives and years of love and puppy kisses.
BTW - If you want to go to WINE WARS and you haven't RSVPed it is really really important to do so now. Our numbers are getting close to capacity and soon I will have to turn people away! Isn't that fantastic?! Think of all we will be able to do in the fight against Breast Cancer, just by going out to have a GREAT time!
