I have a 16-year-old dog with Degenerative Myelopathy (canine ALS), who will surely leave us long before her August birthday, not on her own but with the assistance to ease her increasingly painful hours. And, we have a 14-year-old who is slower and sleepier with each passing day, his interest in everything waning. I cry for both of them daily. I cry for all we had that is slipping away and for the dreaded what-is-to-come.

Keep doing what you’re doing, Tre. Appreciate every moment because there are fewer of them each day. Jernee is a delight. You both are blessed.
