I'm so attached with Moochie and i still don't know how it will be without him. I see him first thing in the morning and he's also the last one i see before i sleep. Moochie is already 4 years old but we still have a lot of years to spend time together. How about you? I'm sure it won't be easy on you too.

I got lots of cute photos of Moochie. I just preserved them on DVD just in case my hard disk fails again. I'm glad you find him cute. I'm sure Max is cute too!

I miss my cat a lot. I had to get rid of her as she was crazy. I do mean crazy would bite you in the face while you was sleeping. Not just a love bite a bite. And then no matter what I did she wouldn't use her cat box but once. So yes I had to get rid of her. And yes I took her to the vet and they said there is nothing wrong with her. But yes I miss her very much. I will not get another pet. as I had a dog once as well. She was grat right up until she was 10 and got to mean. So now I will not get anymore pets. I miss them both so much. You have a great day and I hope you and your Moochie get to have a wonderful Christmas. YOur friend onlydia

Unfortunately yes. One of my dogs is ill. She is on treatment and the vet is doing everything possible, but she may survive long. We are still in the testing phases. In a few weeks she will have another blood test to see if she's getting better. If not then an ultrasound to see if the problem is fixable by surgery. I've come to terms with it, but I don't like the idea of her passing at the age of 9. I want her to live well into her teens. She's a Cocker mix so she should have about 15 years of life. Having pets is really hard. Even if they live to a ripe old age we will have to bury quite a few of them in our lifetimes. The loss hurts. I become very attached to my fur babies. I still feel the loss of the cat I had in my 20's and 30's. She lived to be 17. That's a nice age for a house cat, but I would love to still have her with me. I miss her terribly even after she's been gone 13 years. I hope she's waiting for me up in heaven and we can be reunited forever.

I have hope, but I'm also realistic. I know she may not be treatable. I'll just love her until the time comes, whether it's next month, next year or in another 8 years.

I am dreading the day I have to say good-bye to my 2 doggies. I don't think it'll be any time soon, but I can't imagine life without them. They are like my babies since I don't have any children. They keep me company when I'm alone and they protect me when I'm afraid. I could always get another pet after they pass away, but it could never take the place of my babies in my heart. When ever my friends tell me that they lost their pet or had to put them down for some reason or another, I'm there crying with them. I don't ever want to feel what they were going through, but I know I'll have to some day.

That's how i feel too. I don't know if i could ever find a replacement for Moochie because of all our pets, he seems to be the most lovable.

Well, yes! I am actually living without my pets.. I left my pets with my moms in our province when I've moved from other City to find job.. Of course, I can't bring them here since the fee for airplane is so expensive and I can't afford to pay it.. At first, I though I won't be able to live without them but for now I used to it already.. Of course, I always missed them.. I always asked my mother if how's my dogs doing? I know that my mom will take care of my dogs so I'm not worried with them... I know that my dogs are in the good hand and they were healthy and happy..

wow you so inlove your pet. mmmmmm curious indeed i am... so you mean you two are 4 years in the making... is it very hard for the owner to take care of his pet? sometimes some pet are freely to go anywhere in your house. and you will see them make a dirty things with your upholstery that was so hard and even the poo poo thing.
