The term isn't "cold harded", it's "COLD HEARTED". Not only are you a cold hearted "SOB", but you are an uneducated one, as well. Throwing away a pet like a tool? I've sat in the vet's office while my 15 year old dog was euthanized. That moment is seared into my memory, as well as the rest of our family. You are INDEED, a cold hearted individual. I find nothing wrong with the OP posting about his grief. He felt he had a safe place to share his feelings, and then along comes a twit like you to try to minimize his feelings. Since you lack any empathy, it will be interesting to see how others in your life react during your time of need. Rest assured, you WILL face disappoints and sadness. Maybe it won't be over a pet, but SOMETHING will affect you. Do you want others to do to you what you've done to the OP? Shame!
