    I lost my best friend a week ago!

    He was the most amazing dog and I had to make the decision for him to go! He was only 3 1/2 and I'm struggling to come to terms with him not being here.

    We had to put our family Yorkie,

    Molly, down yesterday. She was 13, but her organs were failing. This was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Molly was the goofiest, most lovable dog, and she had a great life. My heart is broken, but I know she's not hurting anymore.
