    RIP Monty, and my sympathies to the Hanks family.  To me, there is no greater joy than sharing your life with a wonderful pup, and nothing so painful as when they pass on :(

    It just hurts so bad when you lose your best friend. I’m still mourning the loss of my 13 year old yellow lab, Elvis. We had to say goodbye to him a year ago on 1/7. Saddest day of my life. I miss him every day. I do have his ashes in a locket I wear all the time. Helps to have him with me… So sorry Tom. Gonna take a very long time to make sense out of the cruelness of mortality.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I myself recently lost my Tiffy on Dec. 2nd, at the age of 18 yrs. and 9 mos. . The pain I feel is beyond words, so I truly know what you´re going through. I am sending you a comforting humongous heartfelt hug, from one hurting heart to another.
