Brian, sorry to hear that. When we had to "slip the leash" on our 15 y.o. shepherd mix last year, my friend Barb sent this wonderful explanation of why animal lives are shorter than human lives, as explained by a 4-year-old boy: "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right? Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."
The thought warms me every time I think of the dogs we've outlived.
