I feel for you. I lost Tommy 2 days before your post. He was 12 years old so at least he lived to a reasonable age despite his increasing health problems.
I still miss him every day. I miss him lying in my way in the bathroom every morning and his sloppy old dog kisses last thing at night.
In thirty six years I have lost many dogs, so I know it will eventually ease, but at this moment in time I still would give anything to have him complicating my life again.
Cavaliers......Tommy Tuppence 2000-2012 and a half share of Faith.
