I feel like I need to say something about dogs.  A friend of mine has an outside farm dog, a miniature collie named Coby.  January was much colder than normal this year, and during one particularly cold stretch, Coby died.  About a week later, my sister’s house burned down, and her dogs Kiraly and Stoklos both died (from the carbon monoxide, fortunately; they weren’t burned).  Last week, my brother Brian had to put his dog Tundra to sleep.  He had suddenly developed (or at least, suddenly started showing symptoms of) epilepsy, causing him to have seizures, but also might have had a brain tumor, because his personality suddenly changed and he was being vicious after having a seizure.  Despite spending a lot of money trying to make him better, they ultimately had to put him down.  And tonight, I watched Newlyweds because it’s Wednesday, and the episode was about them getting a dog.  Sigh...

Coby, Kroisie, Stokie, and Tundy, we miss you.

The thing is, as horribly sad as this has been, I would rather have had those *wonderful* years with our dogs and be sad now, then to never have had that kind of ’love’.  Getting Sinjin was a really hard decision, because we really DO NOT want to through this kind of pain again.  Of course, they way Kiraly and Stokie died has been a huge part of our sadness...  But in the end, we decided that the love we get from our dogs is worth the sadness when we lose them. :o(  But, I do so miss my big boys...

Ah... when you’re typing a message, there’s a big heading right above the message box that says "Reply to this message here:" if it’s on an existing post.  If it’s not on an existing post, but rather on the main page, then the heading says "Post here:" and it will create a new message instead of a reply.  I thought it was pretty self-explanatory.
