I really, really hope she doesn't mind me posting this, but it's NOT a time to
have to grieve alone.
Janet Boss needs her friends to help her through this - I just got an email
that she's putting Teddy down today. After 11.5 years of being her best friend,
he's losing his fight with cancer, has stopped eating, and she knows she's
doing the right thing. But, Damn! it hurts me to even think about; I can't
imagine how much she's hurting. She's really been wonderful to him and given
him all the comfort she can for the past weeks, and now the hard part starts.
We've most of us been there, and know better than most people what this is
Janet, Dear Lady, it's not fair, and it's not easy, but it's "better to have
loved and lost than never loved at all", as the saying goes. And it certainly
Hang in there.
(And so help me, if *anyone* says anything rude to her in this thread, I'm
hitting the road with a weapon!)
