A Way to Deal with your Pet's Last Days

celebrating Duke's life
Recently, a friend of ours received word that her beloved dog has lymphoma. Just a day before, another friend lost her beloved dog. Around that time, an article and pictorial came out of a photographer who made her dog, Duke's last day the best day ever. Being dog dads, we thought it would inspire you to look at the end of your dog's time in a more positive way.

  So, here's our advice: focus on the time that your dog or cat has with you. Look at this story - we think this will give you something to look forward to with your dog or cat, something to plan and enjoy with the whole family. Make this a time to celebrate your pet's life and have fun together. 
Here's the pictures and the story:

Photo Diary of Dog's Last Day Inspires Owners to Share Their Stories of Loving and Losing Pets

Every dog must have his day. For one black Lab, that day turned out to be his last. When the Roberts family found out they'd have to put their dog Duke down, they decided to make his final day the best one yet, complete with burgers, a trip to the park and more snuggles than any dog could ask for.  STORY AND PHOTOS:  http://www.people.com/article/dying-dog-last-day-alive-photo


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
