Grief of losing a friend - Lets meet on the rainbow bridge


Boris is a 4 years old golden labrador who has the most amazing temperament. He has all the admiralbe characteristics that you can expect to see from a dog/even a person: loving, tender, faithful... His owner is one of Alfa's best friends and a loyalty customer. Every member in Alfa Pet knows Boris and likes him a lot. Boris has lost lots of weight due to the kidney failure caused by unknown reason, and did not eat or drink anything in past few days. This morning, to stop him from suffering anymore, his owner has to follow the vet's suggestion and make the hardest decision - put him down. It was a tough decision for the owner to make, and it was a sad news for every member of Alfa pet. Even the great increased volume of incoming order after the pet expo can not blow away the dark cloud in our heart. We have to try our best to avoid sobbing in the phone when we talk to other customers after we knew the news. I was writing this blog with tears still in my eyes.
