Devoted to Our Canine Companions

It's has been a while since I have posted anything. Perhaps because I have been lazy or lacking in anything meaningful to say. Today, however, I felt compelled to write because I was saddened by a story I read about a woman losing her beloved dog, Paco. After reading the story, I was moved by the obvious devotion this woman had to her dog and the devastating pain she is feeling from losing him. I don't even know this woman but do know that I would like her a lot because of the love she exhibited to Paco. So devoted and loving in fact that she named her business after him and he is the image on her website. One thing I can say, I gave extra hugs to each of my pups and realized how grateful I am that they are in my life. The thing about pups is that they love you unconditionally. I love that about them. They are safe creatures to give love to because you know they won't take advantage of it. We truly are lucky to have them in our world. And I hope when the day comes that I lose one of mine, I can reflect on all the good things they brought me.

I hope that, too, but I think we'll probably just be basket cases for at least a week ...

Its amazingly difficult. I don't think you ever get over it, you just learn to live with it. You fill the void but you never get over the loss.

You never DO forget the dogs who have passed away. Their images come to mind often but the heartbreak diminishes over time and with the addition of a new puppy into the family. Our focus becomes the new puppy and his training and antics.
