    I believe that she did.

    Good morning, LB.

    I like your new look Broomie.

    MARG! Yesterday was a sad day for me. Had to
    take my 16 year old cat to the Vet’s and have it
    put to sleep’ It quit eating and was down to only
    six pounds. Will miss him as he was like a family
    member. I’m surprised your Greyhound is still
    living. That breed usually doesn’t make it past
    ten due to their small heart. You will miss him
    to when he leaves this world.

    I’m sorry about your kitty. We had to put our little 16 year old dog down on 11-12. She started having serial seizures, and required so much medicine to stop the seizures that she couldn’t even open her eyes. I held her in my lap, and petted her, and told her what a good dog she had been.

    Aye margueritem,there’s nothing sadder than the loss of a loved one,with the children all grown and gone your pets ARE your family; and the loss of one would hurt no less than the loss of any member of anyone’s family.

    Condolences to both Llewellenbruce and margueritem on the loss of loved pets.

    Broomie, you don’t do “The Hair Toss” until after you’ve had your hair styled!

    When I saw this strip at another newspaper, all I could think of was; Olivia probably had hair drawn with a chisel marker and Broomie a 0.5 pencil.

    It said toss, not TOSS!

    I, too, am sorry to hear about your losses. My mother who lives alone, just had to have her companion cat of eight years put to sleep, kidney problems. It’s lonely without them.

    Greyhounds have over-sized hearts compared to their weight and commonly live to 14-15 years. My Katie Bell lived to be 14 and might have lasted longer, but she injured herself falling into a ditch. Breeding 5-year old winners makes for very healthy animals.

    Yeah, the saucy toss is also a maneuver that takes plenty of charm training. The way Broomie did it wouldn’t have worked even if she’d started off with the right hairstyle. Sigh.

    Thank you, everyone for sharing your stories of older pets, and for your sympathy. It’s sad to see them go, but we know that they had happy lives, and were well loved.

    What a sad thread.
    Aren’t there any funny comments about the strip?
    Such as Broomie’s talent to make herself look ridiculous?

    SUSAN, you should know better than most, that these forums are where we otherwise might not get to communicate with each other. So far, my communications with all of you have been, sadly for me, mostly one-way, as I rarely get a response. Hopefully, that will change in he future. (Could be due to the timing of my posts, many of you are here at the crack of midnight, while I have to sign off at 10 pm, so that network maintenance can be performed.) We can either talk about the strip, or about what is going on in our lives, something that you, yourself, have done.

    And they will meet us at the Rainbow Bridge sometime in the far distant future.

    @SUSAN NEWMAN

    Will this do? My first thought was that Broomie brought a whole new meaning to the term “hair net”.
