We had our furry friend Grover for twelve years, and his health issues forced us to make a really hard decision today. We didn't want him to suffer any more, and as hard as it was we had to let him go. You never really know how attached you can get to a dog until the end when it feels like a part of you has been ripped out. He was the best dog ever; a big personality and just an all-around chill little unit. Miss you already, Furry G.
Edit: Thanks for all the kind words, guys. It's why I keep coming back here over & over. You're all a solid bunch.
