Mother and their pets
Mumsey called me one night and we were talking and she said her son Guzzy Wuzzy was not well and he is old already. Said her hubby Benny brought Gus to the vet and the vet said that Gus was old. So I think Benny ask Mumsey.. since Gus is so old should we put him to sleep. Mumsey answer to her hubby was "Next time when you are old shall I put you to sleep... " hahaha.. So I laugh... I guess the answer is No.
I am reminded of a conversation that my mother had with my father when a someone came in and took our gas tank. My father ask my mother to let Jake (her precious son) out for him to attack the thief. My mother answer to my dad.. is why dont you go out and stop the thief.
I also remember when I told Jake you are so naughty I am going throw you away. My mother answer to me was why don't we throw YOU (meaning me) away.
I am also remindered the story of NY and her dog Nellie. One time Nellie was quite sick and need to have a womb removed. I think NY mother in law said since the dog is old and sick why not put Nellie down. If I remember correctly NY told me "her mother had a her womb removed and her mother is still alive. No reason to put the dog just because the womb is removed."
I think it take a person with a pet to understand how important the pet is.
