it really does hurt when you lose one though... i mean I keep looking at this puppy and saying, man I love you but in 10-12 yrs (god willing) I'm gonna fucking be sad as balls when you die, is this really worth it?
but then there are the moments your realize no matter how bad it might hurt later, it is worth it for the time you have with them now...
