Lessons learnt from beloved Wolf
Beloved Wolf, aged 5 years
I spent Saturday working in my vegetable garden with my mom, Wolfie was there with us, guarding us. During our talk, my mom commented that I spend way too much time with my dog. That there is so much work when owning a dog, that some parents don't spend as much active time with their children as I do with my dog. She added that I spent so much time with my Wolf and what do I have now that he is dead? By her opinion nothing.
I wasn't offended. I know that nobody who never owned a pet can can understand the joy that a dog can bring you. So I just replied that I can not imagine my time better spent then with Wolf.
Still, my mom's comment didn't leave my mind for many days.
I didn't tell her this, but there is a priceless lesson that I learnt from beloved Wolf. No matter how long you live, the life is always too short. So you just have to live each day to the fullest, the best way you can. And hang out with ones you love.

BTW: I got back mammography results. They are OK. I am very relieved.
