The following pics were not easy for me to find, scan, and post. Why wasn't it easy? It hurts like hell right now typing this... Cassidy died 3 months ago this afternoon. There are many days when I'm not sad but... when I get to thinkin' about it, I really miss him. He was amazing. He was the best darn Dead hiking dog there ever was!

Sorry to hear about your dog. I have lost pets recently, and it is heartbreaking

Hi Zoooma, I thought about you and Cassidy today but I didn't realize it had been three months today. Today just out of the blue I was thinking about Sophie and I started to cry and I thought about Cassidy and I felt really sad. It breaks my heart every time one of my dogs dies but it is worth it and I will do it again.

It's amazing that you started to think of Sophie so much on this day, the 7th, a month after she died, and 3 months after Cassidy. When these thoughts happened to you, I was thinking about Cass, finding and scanning pics, and thinking about this little post. Remember the post when lots of people commented 3 months ago? I can't bring myself to say thanks nor can I barely stand to look at these pictures here for more than a few seconds. It still hurts. Just typing this now....... starting to....... cry. It's messed up because so many days go by when I have hardly a thought of him and I'm 100% fine... but when I start to think about him more... it still sucks.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
