    Oh Chalene, my heart is breaking for you. Any pet owner can relate to the sorrow you’re feeling. I still miss my baby Leo and he’s been gone for nearly 5 years now. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Cried with you my sister. I always said the only thing I didn’t do for our dog was push her out of me. My fifth child. Will miss her forever…hugs

  • Wake Me When It’s Over says:

    Feeling this so much with you. I came home just in time to hold my darling Buddy cat for one hour, before he died in my arms. When I walked in the room, he was lying on a towel where my partner had put him before catching a flight out of town. Buddy was facing away from me, and was too weak to move m, but when I walked in the room he meowed, loudly, at least 7 times. One hour. That’s all we had left together. I wish it could have been more . I totally get your grief and send all my condolences to you 💔

  • Jennifer Ream says:

  • Annie Hunter says:

    Chalene, your story about the person criticizing you on your pod squad is first of all jealous, not satisfied in her life and thinks by tearing you down she will feel better. It’s sad. You are the real deal and I just love you and your content. Sympathies for your loss❤️
