Qualities we desire in humans are found in our pets

Birdie is 15 years old which translated means she is 105 years in human terms. We got her as pup from the Nordheims on New Hope Road. Previous to her we had brother and sister black labs. Cleo was 10 when she got down in her hind quarters, and we had her put down. Tony was eleven when he developed stomach problems; I took him to the vet and left him there to be buried; I held his head as he was euthanized.
