A hard day

We lost two longtime friends and companions today - our Border Collie, Crystal, and our Lab-Chow, Cassie.

Both Crystal and Cassie were over 14 years old and age was taking its toll on both of them.

We woke up this morning to a major medical issue with Crystal and knew it was her 'time.' Distraught, we called the vet and made an appointment for her. Not long after that, we realized that we should have made one for Cassie at the same time. We didn't want to acknowledge it, but deep in our minds, I think we had known that for a while.

Both perked up, as they always do, when we got out the leashes, making what was to come even harder for us.

The Veterinarian and staff were kind and understanding, helping us ease through the process as best we could. And then, it was over.

Goodbye, old friends.
