hi Ellie, I am so sorry that your most precious company had to be put to sleep, that I can relate to so very much, it broke my heart when I had to do the same, because she was still licking me and her eyes were fixed on my eyes, but after her operation it had burst after a cancerous lump was removed.
I had her for 18 years and then she was to be taken away from me, how the hell was I going to cope, well I had another dog, the one in my photo, but my thoughts weren't about her it was all about the one I loved and had to put to sleep, but the one I have now knew that there was something wrong with me and did her best to be patient with me by just snuggling up to me.
There were no demands by her, no chasing the ball or going for our walks, she knew she had to wait until I showed her my love, I can't thank her enough, but it took awhile, now she has all my concentration, but I still look at the photo of my previous puppie everyday, just as one day I will do be doing exactly the same, but that day is not what I'm looking forward to.
My best. Geoff. x
