Found this on LinkedIn and had to share... There's nothing quite like the bond between a dog and its owner, and we just wish our furry friends could live as long as we do. It's never easy realizing that your pooch is getting older and that one day they might not be around to keep you company anymore. The heart-wrenching post recently resurfaced and has been shared by dog lovers who found the thought of their pets aging, almost too much to cope with. It reads: "No one tells you how quickly dogs. How one day you wake up and suddenly their face is all white, how their eyes start to seem milkier than before, how you have to call their name a few more times than you used to. "People tell you not to blink when you have children, but what about the dog who was with you before your children were even thought of? The dog who was by your side before you found the love of your life, the dog who jumped from apartment to apartment in your early 20’s. No one tells you to cherish every moment you have with them… "Cherish the dog. The one who has been there through every breakup and every dumb fight with your best friend. That dog who slept in the bed with you when you were lonely and made you feel safe when you left home. "Cherish him, because one day you’ll take him on a walk, and he’ll start to get tired before you and you’ll realize just how many years he’s been walking by your side." "Dogs don’t get nearly as much time on this earth as they deserve. It makes every moment infinitely more important."
