I would also posit this.....there were times I didn't want to get out of bed, but knowing my other little dog needed to be fed, let out and loved on, made me get out of the bed.

I'm sure y'all have known an elderly couple and one was the caregiver to the sickly one and soon as the sick one died, the other one had no purpose and died pretty quickly too.
