One of the benefits of finding out about about a serious, life-threatening health problem (as opposed to a sudden, surprising death, which is what devastatingly happened with Yogi) is that you make sure to do things in the time that's left that you might otherwise leave un-done. I made sure to get plenty of photo-ops with Brody in what sadly turned out to be his final months, and I'm so glad that I did. These photos are so dear to me now! (There are some other pretty silly ones, but they shall remain safely tucked away in my photo files!)
This is one of my favorites!
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
