I'm sorry about your dog too. I would be devastated if my dog pass away. he is 12, but I know his time will come one day and it will be very sad day... my little cat is ill, I don't even know what's wrong with him. He's hobbling around the hose, holding front leg up and not putting any weight on it at all, he doesn't want to eat, but I hope he will be fine in few days. This is a cat, he will pull through, but I don't like to see animals suffer. who does? hmmm... only people with hearts of stone, I think.
