There are few thoughts as sickening as imagining your pet in a scenario where they’re vulnerable, scared and alone.

We’d like to think our pets know they’re loved always, and know we’ll do whatever is necessary to protect them and make them feel safe.

But according to a post that recently went viral, there’s one moment in particular where humans fail.

Read this heart-wrenching yet poignant article here AND hug your dog, cat, bird, or other pet tight and promise them you’ll never abandon them in their final moments.

The ball is here somewhere…

Linc loves his tennis balls.  Sometimes though, he thinks mom should retrieve said balls…  Staring at mom, then staring into the woods is his way of asking for assistance.

I love my mom AND all my toy balls

Linc is obsessed with balls – all balls, any balls, balls of all colours.  I love his obsessive ball behaviour!  There are balls all over the house, yard and neighbourhood.  Once the snow is gone completely, I suspect there will be a scattered collection strewn on the ground from our backyard and back forty.

Linc won’t know which one to fetch first!
