"Tough day today my friends. Thanks to all for all the kind messages. Give your dog a hug for me tonight" - Howard Stern via Twitter
Howard Stern has long been a huge part of my everyday life. Today when he mourned the passing of his beloved dog Bianca it truly moved me. As a longtime pet owner you go in knowing that one day the countless years of joy will be balanced by the fact that these beautiful creatures live far too short lives. I feel your pain Howard...and I hope I can handle the inevitable with as much dignity as you have this morning. Thoughts and prayers.
