When I am feeling especially happy or sad about my dogs, those who came before, those who are here now and maybe even those who will be, I am reminded of this quote. I think it is one of my favorite quotes about my relationship with dogs.

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."---Unknown
Blessings to all who are going through difficulties right now.
