Too short

These are the sweet faces that I am greeted by everyday.  Recently while at the dogpark, a lady whose son was enamored by Burger and Derby asked how old they were.  I told her they were approaching 6 and 7 and she blurted out, "oh wow, they're old!".  My heart stopped for a second and suddenly I was picturing myself in the heartbreaking scenes of Marley and Me.  I HATE when I am reminded that the time I have with them is short, too short if you ask me.  When I think of everything and everyone in my life, nothing has brought me as much happiness and showed me more love than these two.  I can hear people saying, "oh shutup you crazy dog lady, you're being so dramatic!".  Sorry man, can't help it.  I'm a mess just thinking about a world without them.  Heelllllp!


  1. I know exactly how you feel. I have a dog too and he's almost 5 (even though he looks like he's only a year old). It scares me to the pits of my tummy when I think about what will happen years down the road! Enjoy them thoroughly now! Your dogs are so gorgeous :)

  2. sorry I cant help you because i feel the same....what are we going to to without them??? :(

  3. Your pups are SO adorable, and I think 6 and 7 are still really young! I lost my dog last year at the age of 11, and we rescued him from some rough homes. I hope and pray that your adorable doggies will be there for a long, long time :)

    Signed, fellow crazy dog lady haha

    I hope you're having a great weekend besides these thoughts!!
