  1. I really like this quote – “If there is a heaven, it’s certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them.” ~ Pam Brown
    It reminds me of how bonded my dog is to the family. We also find him innocent and he is like an angel as well. He has these very adorable eyes that no one can resist. I totally agree on this quote.
