Life Full circle

From the day we are born we are all rushing towards death.
We don't know when, we don't know where. Live your life well, you only have one run at it.

Today we euthanized Bosco, a member of our family for 15 years. It was a decision we agonized over preferring to let nature take its course. Last night was just too much. He was having problems with his airway and was very upset, could not catch his breath he was in pain and panicky. We could not watch him suffer. In todays modern society death is too well hidden.
It happens in a land of sterile rooms full of tubes and hoses. We should all be aware that our death is coming and to live life well until that time. Take a moment today and hug the ones you love.

Sorry to hear about Bosco. He was a well behaved dog... and he tolerated my spazzed-out puppy the time I brought her over.
