Today, my husband's former dog, who lives with his ex-wife crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We had pug-sat for Winston many times. And while we knew his time was coming (he was blind, deaf, lost his sense of smell and had a brain tumor causing seizures), it comes as a shock, so closely on the heels of so many other beloved pets this year.
First, my friend C's dog Harvey passed away. He was 14 and had Cancer.
Then my own beloved Freya.
On 9/11, my best friend's dog passed away, in the same manner as Freya. We raised our girls up together and they were the same age.
And now Winston today.
They were the last of the really great, old dogs in my circle of friends.
Go in peace, Winston. Job well done.

Your biggest challenge isnít someone else. Itís the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells, "CANíT", but you donít listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.
