CENTERBURG — To lose a pet can bring great sadness, and such was the case on April 29 for Kathy Smith when her dog, Jasmine, died of a heart attack. The 12-year-old brindle boxer was loved for her playful nature.

    What would have been the proper response to the pet owner under the circumstances?

    As a pet owner this breaks my heart! How awful for this woman to see her beloved friend treated so direspectfully! My dogs are a very important part of our family, how dare someone who is supposed to be in the business of caring for animals treat one this way!
