Depression - Round Two

What I'm about to share with you I find to be very personal but I want to share this with you to give you a peak of what it can be like for someone with depression and suicidal thoughts.

He is an amazing dog and I wouldn't trade him for the world! He's so loving and loves people and other dogs.
