I made this card because it reminded me of my dog Duncan. he is a west highland white terrier. He is like my child and in many ways way more spoiled then a child.

I love the westie breed. Our first westie lived to be 17 1/2 he was an amazing dog. He turned several people from dog haters to dog owners.
This is a picture of Duncan when he was a pup and our "OLD MAN" storm. It wasn't much longer after this that we had to put him down. That day I think Duncan knew that Storm wasn't feeling right. Instead of playing and running around and harassing storm he just went over side him and layed next to him. Duncan has some big paws to fill with this but he is working on it. I truly believed that Storm taught him many lessons.

It was one of the saddest and hardest decisions to make but I think it was the right one. He was in so much pain yet everything he did was to please us. Letting him go was for him not for us. I once saw a cartoon by Duncan Classics (yes we named our dog after that) once and I always remember it when I think of storm and I like to pass it on to anyone that loses one of their cats or dogs.

What a bittersweet tale, Laura. Thanks for sharing this. Our stories help us to know each other better, don't they? Duncan looks like a little gentleman, spoiled or not. :)
