We euthanized my 17-yr old cat last night, and I just woke up from a dream where he came to me to say "Goodbye." I am not thinking straight right now, so I thought I'd ask you this question because I don't know how I feel about it right now.
Do you keep track of the dates your pets died?
I still remember the date my childhood dog died, April 26, 1994. Now that I'm older and have had a few more pets over the years, I don't think I can keep track of all the dates in my pee-brain.
I don't want to be sad every year, but I also don't want to regret not keeping the date handy somewhere for when the time comes when I can celebrate the life lived.
