      It was and still hurts but he's been gone 6 years and I ended up taking on 3 rescue dogs, lovely also in their own crazy way

      Thank you for the comments it's made my day, I think we are so lucky to be able to have pets, I'm a massive believer in the reasoning that they actually help us to deal with the stresses of life in general including mental and physical illnesses

      Can't beat a good cuddle and a good belly laugh and they definitely make me do both

      Can't agree more. Even a slightest interaction with a doggo makes us go from 1 to 10 on the scale of happiness. No doubt they're one of the best gifts given to us 😍😍
