This is the 1st game in any Razorbacks sport I’ve watched in 12.5 yrs without my beloved dog and best friend Baxter at my side. Putting him down yesterday due to compassion & his health was needed. This win against The Squid and the Jellycats is dedicated to him and feels so damn good! Go to Hell Kentucky and I cannot wait for the follow up game in BWA!!! That crowd should be epic!
I meeded this tonight and it feels like jumping into a bed with freshly clean sheets! Thank you Mitchell twins as well!
It never ceases to amaze me how we develop such a close bond with our little furry creatures. They really still our hearts. We resign ourselves to losing them, but the grief and pain we experience from their absence is heavy. They add real joy to our lives.
My wife and I do not have kids. We have had labs. In fact to this day I will swear that the only reason my wife married me was because on our first date I took her on a float down the King’s River with my dog. The entire time my Choc Lab, Bourbon, stood with his front feet on her seat and his head on her shoulder. It was love at first site. We have an 8 year old Choc. now named Clyde. he is also a “Momma’s Boy”. When she leaves the house he is beside himself waiting on her. I know when she gets home because he runs in from looking out the window. When I open the door so he can run greet her I always laugh. He is the most athletic lab I have ever had but he can hardly run to her because he is wiggling so much!
My last three dogs were strays I adopted. I eventually had to have each one put down. It was so upsetting I didn’t ever want another dog. Then I started feeding this stray cat. Tony moved in and became my best friend for 9 years. About two months ago he had a stroke cut painful to watch and he had to be put down.
So I feel your pain. I learned that cats are great pets as well and can be devoted to those who take care of them.
