I love God and I also have had dogs. I think they are great. I have my 5th rescue dog now. I miss them all, but I dont blame God for making their live span shorter than ours. Three of the dogs that I adopted were older, one 6 one 9, and one a deaf dog who was 10, so my time with them was even shorter, but I dont regret it, as older dogs are harder to place in homes.
Death is sadly part of life while we are on earth. If one dies we have room for another unwanted one.There is always joy and sadness with loving anything or anyone, but the years of pleasure that they give, far outweighs the deep sadness when they die.The only way to aviod the pain of bereavement is never to love anything or anyone, and what a sad life that would be.
