There are have been so many losses on this forum, especially lately. It really makes me realize my own dogs are not immortal and that I will have to go through this in the future as well. I'm having a hard time with this lately- I can't shake the idea of death from my mind I don't know how I'll cope when they pass away. Rylie is turning 7 in September, and it's hard to remember a time when she wasn't in my life- I brought her home when I was a Junior in college. She's been through every big step of my life. I just can't imagine that she won't be here. I'm terrified that Chloe's mole will turn out to be skin cancer. I'm not ready to lose her- she's 6 years old. The possibility of this being something serious just makes me sick to my stomach I was browsing my old chihuahua forum and saw that a member lost all three of her rescue puppies to Parvo... one right after the other. It was the saddest series of threads. These puppies were 2 or 3 months old and seemed like they were going to pull through, but they all died. It's just not fair. Thanks for letting me vent/ramble on. I just feel so sad.
