adventures of a dad, mom, their 3 boys, 1 baby girl, 1 cat and 2 dogs
Oh my goodness, no comment. Just kidding. I think the poster's cool. So who's the supporting cast? Benji? Lassie? Skip?
I LOVE all the details you put into the poster! Thanks for reminding me about the orange square to make it even bigget to read them all!
I read this and thought of Sawyer and because it has a Mom named Lisa and a 4 year old named Shane:Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine aten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog'sowners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy,Shane, were all very much attached to Belker andthey were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belkerand found he was dying of cancer. I told the familythere were no miracles left for Belker, and offeredto perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dogin their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisatold me they thought it would be good for thefour-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. Theyfelt as though Shane might learn something from theexperience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throatas Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed socalm, petting the old dog for the last time, that Iwondered if he understood what was going on. Withina few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. Thelittle boy seemed to accept Belker's transitionwithout any difficulty or confusion.We sat together for a while after Belker's death,wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal livesare shorter than human lives. Shane, who had beenlistening quietly, piped up, "I know why." Startled,we all turned to him. What came out of his mouthnext stunned me. I'd never heard a more comfortingexplanation. He said, "People are born so that theycan learn how to live a good life -- like lovingeverybody all the time and being nice, right?" Thefour-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already knowhow to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply, Speakkindly. Leave the rest to God.
