This story really touched me. I often think of my dog as my furry kid. They truely are too. You two gave Jerry more than some Humans get. To travel and just be free even if you have cancer. To feel free with cancer is more than I could wish for any human or animal I love. So jerry was truely blessed when he got his two humans. He got two Angels... Thank-you for sharing your story. It must have been hard but Thank-you. It tell others it is o-kay to spoil our loved ones, Furry or not. God bless you on your next dog! XO XO XO Ps and many hugs from my cat, dogs, lizard, fish and stray cats Ihave...

Enjoyed reading this article. We still have to see the PBS show, but we are recording the series in our DVR. Eventually it will come up.
We hope Jerry will welcome Fox when his time comes.
Btw guys, did you notice the article error with your ages? You guys look 10 years younger than that!
Looking forward to seeing the program, and again, wonderful article about 'the pack'!

A pet, a hobby, or ... an obsession?

Get over yourselves.

Sorry for your loss. I think you both did a very good thing. Our animals can be just like our children. LOL you are a jerk as usual. Please ignore the dimwitted of this world.
