Yesterday, my 10.5-year-old black lab, Hoss, passed away unexpectedly, albeit quickly and painlessly, from what we think was heart failure. We’re gonna miss you so much, buddy. He died happy, and he knew he was loved. I didn’t know it would be the last time, but I gave him a good pet and a belly rub before I left for school yesterday, and I’m so glad I took the time to. Guys, cherish your time with your pets, and don’t take their presence for granted. Give them all the love you can while they’re around.
