On Tuesday we made the decision to release Charlie to the Rainbow Bridge. His advancing age, dementia, and other health related issues made his quality of life very restricted.
You came to me as a scrawny 18 month old, barky, goofy stray. Your owner never came to reclaim you, so you claimed a place in our hearts. You drank beer with the boys, you chewed everything you could get your mouth around, you "drove" the mustang and every other car you thought you could get away with. You loved puppies and helped me train Scooter. You love kitties, babies, your boy and dad.
My brain totally gets all the reasons why it was time...my heart...not so much.
