I can't imagine doing this more than once in a great while. You must be very strong to handle pain like that. If you've read about my Cooper then you know I completely understand your misery. It sounds like Comet led a long life which is more than I can say for my Bear, so definitely remember that. Also remember that you're not alone because there's a heart in Bellingham, WA that's aching just as bad as yours. You owe it to Comet to grieve for his loss, so let it be and don't hold back. Take care.
