Also, when I registered, my dog that has always been my profile pic was around 3 years old. We put him down this May after he lived a long life of 17 1/2 years. He used to get scared and hide at the end of the hall when I was yelling at the TV during an OSU football or bball game. Miss that guy so much.
Wasn’t allowed pets as a child. All I ever wanted. So much that I kept roly polys as pets until I got into terrariums. Got first dog when my kid was 6. Losing her 10 years later literally almost killed me. The dog not the kid, pretty sure that would kill me. Loss 40bs and the whole works that comes with it. This is why kids should have pets. Anyway. Three dogs and five cats later I truly believe in this poem.



“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enought, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.”

Still hits me where it counts. Sorry for the loss.

Where did you get the poem? Who wrote it?

My memory is getting fuzzy. Did OP 9000 create this board back in 2003, or was he just one of the first moderators?
He started the board...fun times back then when there were only a few of us and we were trying to find ways to entertain ourselves, I was member #7.
You got me beat by 11 days

Had to check and saw I passed 15 years myself last month. All that really means is I managed to survive this world for 15 years. I'll be more impressed with myself if I manage to survive the next 15 years.
