Yes, if you have a pet...you're probably gonna have to let them go eventually. RIP Rocket, 2009ish-2022.

I am truly sorry for your loss. You can see that Rocket was a good dog. I miss dogs that were my pals from more than 70 years ago. You never forget them. RIP Mr. Rocket.

Sorry for your loss.

The good thing about macaws is they normally live 50+ years, meaning mine will probably outlive me (he was hatched in 2000) or need to be rehomed when I get too old to care for him. The bad thing about macaws is that you're stuck with a 2 year old equipped with a megaphone and a chainsaw for 50+ years.

Dogs come and go in a persons life.
Love them while they are here.
Just the fact of it all and must be understood.
That’s how I explained it to my children.

And please don’t mistake my pragmatism for callousness.
I’m a dog lover.
