To all the DU'er Moms and Dads of pets we have in our lives.
You may know that I loss my Sara this week. I just received a card from her vet that I would like to share with you.

We who choose to surround ourselves with lives
even more temporary than our own
live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.

Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we still would live no other way.

We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
never fully understanding the necessary plan...

"The Once Again Prince"
Separate Lifetimes by Irving Townsend

1. Wow. What a nice sentiment.
"we still sould live no other way" -- ain't that the truth?

I couldn't live without kitties. My oldest is 14 1/2, but still frisky as a kitten. I hate that she's old, though, and every day I am grateful I have her in my life to bring me untold joy (as well as my other furry kids and my human kids).

2. When we lost our Ruby girl a few years ago
we got a card from our vet as well. And they made a donation to cancer research in her name. So sweet.
