A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things - a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about the optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.

What a beautiful quote. You really can learn a lot from a dog. I know today was a hard day, how are you holding out?

Today was a hard day, but after shedding some tears and talking with Stan I feel good that I finally have set her free. We should have done this a couple of years ago, but I couldn't do it. Thank you for being there for me as I went through this decision!

I've been thinking about you all day and I have something we're going to bring over to you tonight. Love you!

Wish that I could take away your pain tonight! She is out of pain and suffering and hopefully that in itself can bring you some comfort at her loss! HUGS!!
