I'm Not Much Good At Goodbyes

Yesterday was our last day with Salty Dog.
For those with pets, you will understand how much a part of our family he was and how much he will be missed. I'm not much good at goodbyes and I'm not shamed to admit, this one broke my heart.

Catch you later Salty Dog...
peace

I am so sorry for your loss. Whenever I hear of a friend that has lost their furry baby, well, I just can't handled it. It takes me right back to my first furry baby. She was my life then and I remember clearly how it hurts. Hugs to you and everyone that loved Salty Dog!
