Wonderful My Turn on pet loss

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

Sheila Quinlivan said it all in her wonderful My Turn article about losing a pet. Amen.

We had a wonderful rescue dog, Skippy, for 17 years and were devastated when we lost him.

Some of the many statements in the column are so true like, “she was my baby and a family member ... she was my friend and constant companion ... she made me laugh every day.”

I don’t think people without pets realize how close you can become when they are with you 24/7 for over 17 years. It is a great loss.

It’s been almost 3 ½ years since we lost Skippy and there is hardly a day that goes by that we don’t think of him with love and truly miss him.
