    We kept our tarantula’s sheds, it’s almost the same as still having her, but without having to provide the crickets, or remembering to freshen her water. We had her for 20 years. She was a Chilean Rose and was always calm and of good temper. We keep her sheds in small jars. Her fangs were even shed, and they still are impressive. :D

    My ex-girlfriend had two ferrets and two dogs – no, the dogs never bothered the weasels, as far as I know. I eventually inherited Al, the little old man ferret, and the Rottweiler Titan. They’ve long since crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

    I miss them.

    Now I feel the tears.

    We had to have Blazer put down right before Christmas. Keeping him longer would have amount to animal abuse. He was 14, which is a pretty good age for a dog, but that didn’t make it easier. Yeah, tears whenever we look for him.

    I really disliked 2020 so much, I lost 3 of my “companions” (the latest on on December 15) and I still keep looking for them and sometimes saying the names.

    We lost our 8 year old dog and 16 year old cat in a 10 day period around Thanksgiving …

    One of my dogs (of 3) would always bring me a toy and dance when I came in the back door after working in the yard. Had to put her down 12/31/20 because the seizures were so bad. I really miss that greeting.

    Dogs are taken too soon from us. Why do tortoises and chimpanzees live longer?

    I stay sane by believing that all my furry children will be waiting for me when my time comes

    We took on Chewy when our son, her Human Dad, was appointed to New Caledonia. She was 2 and lived happily with us till her 13th birthday. Then the Dreaded C appeared and we had to let her go to the Other Side. At first, whenever I caught sight of something white I imagined it was her for a split second. It took me over a year before I could bear to look at her photos. I hope she’s romping with all our other pals somewhere in that Happy Hunting Ground…and one day well be reunited with them all. Who knows………

    3/17/17: Gray, who ran our house with love, a gentle paw and flawless tick-tock. Gone too young. Never be another like him. He joins many another excellent housemate.

    I lost my Bambina in November. This has been such a sad time.
