Fragile Circle

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan."
Irving Townsend.
Sleep well, Jake.

I am so very sorry. The death of a pet is so hard on those of us who love our pets like family.

Chelle, I am so sorry. There's a world of meaning in the words "good dog," and it sounds like Jake was a very good dog.
