McCarthy, our Yellow Lab and faithful companion for the last 13 years past away last night. We were sorry we weren’t there for his last days. Fortunately he did have the companionship of our wonderful house-sitter and some good friends. He past away 10 minutes before the vet arrived to the house sparing us a difficult decision. We are so grateful to have such a wonderful vet as Matt Hall in a town as small as Seward.
When you don’t have kids, you become very attached to your pets. Ours are probably treated better then many kids. We will miss the times we spent skijoring and mountain running, but what I think I will miss the most is having him curled up at our feet while we work in the office. We lost our cat to old age this past year as well – the two of them were always at our feet. We will be coming home to a quiet house, I’m also going to really miss that greeting when we walk in the door.
