Puppy Pack Adventures Podcast with Tara Bassett
10 minutes | Apr 30, 2021
As our canine family members age, all sorts of challenges appear that we may never have anticipated when they came to us as puppies…incontinence, mobility issues, dementia, disease, to name a few. We cope on a daily basis with walking support harnesses, diapers, indigestion, fear, fatigue…and come to the conclusion, hopefully, that they are not here for us, but with us, for a much shorter time than we’d like. It’s our responsibility as their loving humans to determine when their quality of life is diminished to the point that it’s time to allow them, or help them, to cross the Rainbow Bridge. We’re dealing with that transition in the Puppy Pack right now, and it’s the hardest and most rewarding time of our lives.

What a wonderful time the Pack had with their grandma, Mommy Tara’s mother, when she came to visit our little family for what was supposed to be a magical 16 days in Louisville. This adventure was created just before Grandma unexpectedly fell ill, and a few weeks later, passed into her next life. The guest star of this Puppy Pack Adventure will long hold a place in the hearts of our little family, and we will miss her always.
