Today I had to make a very hard decision. I had to put my dog Duchess to sleep after 16 years of companionship. We will all miss her very much but I know that my son Cameron will miss her more, as they grew up together and he took on the responsibility of walking her and caring for her. Having a pet like Duchess was alot of fun and at times alot of work. She was the 2nd oldest of all our pets, Mookie (our cat ) being the oldest. She was also put down 3 years ago at the age of 15 after battling Diabetes. I could'nt imagine my life without either of these furry friends as they both brought so much love and laughter into our lives. So as Cameron took Duchess for one last walk today I knew that I had to let her go and I pray she thought as much of us , as we did of her.
