The Big Question
Last night I asked myself, "Why do we do it?" Or, to quote C. S. Lewis, "Why love if losing hurts so much?" Of course, therein lies the rub - losing them wouldn't hurt so much if we didn't love them so much. I visit the Rainbow Bridge from time to time and really feel for the people who lose their beloved companions, especially the young ones who go to soon. A recently-made friend of mine who is also a BW member just tragically lost her girl who was less than two years old. And all of you who posted here have had your losses, too, or are facing the possibility.
But, of course, I knew the answer even before I asked . . . and this morning, as every morning, when I show the first signs of waking up, Emma's little stub of a tail starts wagging furiously. As soon as I tell her good morning, the kidney-beaning and face washes begin - it's really done wonders for my skin. Ha. It's a pretty sweet way to wake up every morning.
Pearlywhirly, I wish you the best with Jules - that is so adorable that Pearl and she get along so well! I bet it is the most precious thing to watch.
