I made an appointment for Quinc to get his teeth cleaned next week, and he has to be put to sleep when they do it. I just get worried because my little buddy is getting old and I hate that part of the dental cleansing process. Sarah and I aren't sure how old Quincy is because we got him from the pound and they had no history on him. We have had him for 5 years, and our best guess is that he is 7 or 8. Well bassets generally live about 10-12 years so he is getting up there. It is just something I get worked up about every now and then. Anyway, these links down below take you to an artice "Dogs have souls, don't they" and the other is the Rainbow Bridge story. I have read the dogs one before in Ann Landers but I just found the Rainbow one. They both make you kind of sappy but it also makes you smile thinking about all the pups up in heaven waiting for their owners to finally come get them. I know I have a few friends up there I would like to see especially Higgins.
