I too am unable to read thru these. There is a book that I have called, The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog by Eugene O'Neill.I can't read these. It breaks my heart.
There are times that we all have or will face with our beloved retrievers that causes our hearts to ache with the pain of loss. Many who have not shared this special bond with a dog won't understand why we grieve as if we have lost a child, a best friend, a dearest companion. But those of us who have experienced this pain do understand.
