Hug your animals today.
Send love to my friend Laini Taylor, who is spending her final day with her beloved dog, Shiloh, who will be going back to the great beyond shortly, rather than suffer.
Remember Figaro, the fattest, most fuzzy, personable, loving cat there was.
Kiss your kitties and dogs, chinchillas and guinea pigs, rabbits and horses. Whistle to your budgies and give your fish an extra pinch of food.
Then go do the same to your human friends and loved ones.
It's short on this planet. Far shorter than any of us realize.
