Sorry about your loss. We can become soo close with our pets, especially when we live alone. I didnt want another dog, but my daughter insisted when her female had a second litte. Now I would be lost without Petey. He is so much company and sooo smart.
My great grands (3 of them) came by last night and brought their new puppy. I fear for that little puppy. the kids are 3,4,and 5 and they were all wanting to hold it. God help that little thing.
We always had pets when my kids were gowing up. The last one was 15 when he died and we buried him beneath the fig tree in my back yard.
All the best to you and your family.
