At some point when I started this blog with the six dogs, I remember the impact I felt when other bloggers lost their dogs. And that too was difficult as well. I wrote this post back then about it. ALL of my pets are close to the same age with the exception of Silver is 9 years old. Brut is six, and the four kids are 5 years old. Then there are the cats, Boxer is 7, Leia is 6 and Luigi the duck is 11 years old.
God willing they all live to their full age, they will all be dying around the same time. From Brut to Luigi they could go one after another, assuming Silver goes first.
When I wrote that post I remember thinking that the heartbreak that will happen in this house will be devastating when that time comes. Now once that happens and they finally feel I'm safe to be reinstated from the funny farm, I have three different ideas what I would do.
1) Travel. Our home will be unbearable so empty and I figure two years on the road to explore the world while help in the grieving process. These 6 dogs are so precious and I've never been without a dog in my life, I think that I will need the physical and mental break in order to survive.
2) Rescue dogs. I will have a place to rescue and take in those unwanted dogs and cats that I have missed being able to do with my bunch being here.
3) Breed Blaze, have and keep all the puppies to keep the 24 Paws of Love genes going while giving me an opportunity to build my dream sled dog team. Which will obviously happen before she dies and will help with the impending grieving that will come when her and the others die.
Out of all of them #3 is the most likely to happen. Although the rescue dogs is likely to happen as well. And maybe I'll be traveling as well. Who knows!
Sorry for the morbid piece, but this wasn't what I'd planned on writing about. After seeing those pics of Angel and Grumpy though it just all fell out.
Have you ever thought about what you will do when your pet dies?
