So I spent Sunday afternoon watching the movie Marley and Me. I grew up on the farm with lots of pets. I watched as our farm dog grew old and died. It was so hard because he was part of the family. I knew the movie was going to be sad, I'd heard that from several people, but I didn't think I would cry... it's just a movie, it's just a dog...
However as Marley grew old and got sick I watched the kids in the movie get sad. It reminded me of how hard it is to lose a pet. I loved the movie and laughed out loud several times... but guess what, I cried. Not only did I cry, but I sobbed! I vowed to never have a pet for that one reason. They die.
My kids beg for a puppy all the time, but I don't want to watch them cry when it dies... am I weird ... probably... but who is normal?
