I remember the day when Meredith that's our daughter rescued me from that awful prison. I thought I was going to have to spend the rest of my life and that cage. I thought that was the tempest in my life it was. Until you. My real mom came into my life and I knew what real -- was all about no one could ask for a better about. Tell dad I saw a dot dot was. Dog that who we lost about a year and a half ago because of a massive -- -- she looks great.

Sharon Henry Sharon thank you so much of in part of the show to. Thank you and I don't know I capturing that letter I was sitting here so I felt. You know -- seventeen years. Your -- for. And what I tell people all -- and one of the reasons at a lot should hurt a much. Is that really -- is unconditional. -- And we. Can't keep we keep expecting. That are special K and the -- That we can't do and say oh well they're catching. -- -- His his last act was act of love on what happened was -- he had gotten aware. You lost a slight loss to hearing. He couldn't really do any thing guy who was getting the point where he was. Stumbling going on the stairs and he he really was just not doing well and I don't know you know Greg -- doctor -- rich. Okay he is a he's an exotic pet vet and is one of my best friends. And he had arranged for us to bring -- into him. -- at 3 o'clock. Sunday afternoon and we were we were getting ready. To do that and that is. One of the most difficult brutal fleeing you have to do because if you feel that you are taking their life and touched a terrible. Horrible decision to try to make and we were that it was like 215. And my wife and I were actually getting dressed ago. And he walked into the bin and collapse and quite -- But that made it's so much easier Reynolds yeah we -- them with his last act. In thought about us yeah. And he would serve. -- he wants it really. There's no -- you know you know but some people don't understand other people say. You know it's well it was just the dog -- I never even referred to was a dog -- my body. Right well you know -- or -- it differently. To now probably to the majority of the population. They are our best friends. They're. Special they're not just dog or just cat she can't just get up. Of course she -- if you remedy -- the on the we're only. Yeah. Well it's interesting that you say that because you know I in the beginning. Win. Talked to my wife about. In a bottle whether -- one another one and then. My first thought was I'm gonna go get me a little brown dots and property on the named him Goddard to on the replaced Miller with a new color. But that only lasted about maybe 23 hours and I realized I will never be able to replace ever. Right when when I was growing up. We've had -- we have a dog. And that dog died when I was very young. And my father never awarded another dog and I would every now and then would -- a puppy in my folder paid no attention to it probably wouldn't -- if by mama mama -- What is it with dead. And then dogs and she said because. He lost when he lost -- That was like losing one of his children and he says I will never replace that with a notebook and I guess that's the way we didn't. Yeah and people feel differently from people. Can't -- -- -- darker cat because. They just don't think they handle a lot like at. And then there -- some people. Just believe they can't because Cuban people actually. -- -- And in me and it came to agree group from war and year. End. -- -- mr. Carrier's stock bullet so much. And the current picture that one date late which strange. In when he can't get a quick momentum and they column. Is there -- At the taping this dog -- shall we believe you regret and you're -- And he got gunned down. So you -- such a beautiful story and he along the way it can talk about it -- I think it was. -- fear of being. Gimme some inside on you actually hold group sessions for actually to tell me about -- and where'd you have them and if a -- wants to go to them how to do it. -- To start it can't happen at slightly longer battery trauma they're but he knows weirdly long battery useful -- the -- There's a free standing building and that. Crematory and -- -- beautiful where should he can actually eat well. At the actual play they're. Actually over in the current -- -- or put a -- out at. And are the first -- -- regard and I mean second straight -- their. Trip and all the -- group. And all they have to do is call patent protection at the numbers aren't so forward. 482. Happened streak they happened. And say that they want to temptation never caught. And the only reason we want people to Kabul. Is is to group get too large. I have to use the power to fuel -- Let me do this let me give my phone number in May be people who were lifting right now might want to after apportionment of -- The big question is is when you know it's time if you have if you wanna take -- show a -- -- -- Europe that tells about a loss of Europe and if you wanna.
