So sad

Claren is 11 years old. I think she qualifies as geriatric on the  poster about age at the vet.

She not ready to retire, I don't think -- her job is pretty cushy -- but I do think about it and about getting a new dog.

A few weeks ago, I was thinking about it and a really sad and morbid thought popped into my head.

It scared me so much I had to tell Mom. I told her when we were walking Claren on the bike trail. She listened closely, stopped walking AND ... laughed. Totally cracked up and mocked me and  said she couldn't wait to tell the friends she was seeing that night.

My thought: My successor dog might outlive Mom and Dad.ser
