I often speak about my pets with people I talk to daily. I think many of us that have had a number of pets over the years know all too well they are not just animals to us but are family. My youngest son was just saying the other day that he could not imagine our home without them. Sadly this big guy Duncan is one that we had to put down in May 2003 due to Cushing's Disease. He was only 8 years old. He was such a big lovable oaf. We still miss Duncan deeply.
