It has just been a couple of days and this heartbroken soul is very grateful to you all for your sharing Bo's loss with me, and leaving your words that have not only comforted me, but have again reminded me of the kindness and compassion of the blogging community. Many of us will own multiple pets in our lifetimes, and so we will have these sad losses along the way. But it is still worth every moment of joy we are given in return. Someone on facebook said to me that "we live to love again." Very true words, I think.
We said good-bye to Bo here at home. After the vet left, there was a very touching response from Rhett. While we waited for the service who is returning his remains to us, Rhett stayed with Bo the entire time afterwards and wouldn't leave him. He even tried to follow the men from the service out the door. Was Rhett doing the job of angels or keeping them company?
