    Absolutely true Sharlene. I still want THAT dog back, and I have another. The problem is, she is not him. Adorable yes, but NOT HIM!

    I agree....and thank you for helping me feel a little less guilty.
    I guess like persons, they have their own special individual traits and personalities. And, for sure, I would never attempt to "replace" an earlier dog. Sometimes there are those dogs that come along and for whatever reason they burrow a tad further down into our hearts and souls. I just need to remember how very lucky I was to have one, maybe two of those very, very special ones.
    For now there is Bailey and she is special in her own unique ways. I feel very lucky to have her. She is full of love and joy and hi-jinks. But it is very different from how I experienced Palmer, and before him, Peaches.

    You sound like you are doing very well Sharlene. I loved your comment about Koko needing his own bowl and I heartily agree and second that!

    Love,
    Sus

    Thank you all.

    I'd say I'm maintaining.

    Luckily the kids move is keeping me so busy there isn't any real time to think about myself and how I feel about anything. Not numb, just not focused on it. If that makes sense.

    On top of that we've had an acquisition at work that is also keeping me really busy. Then add on the holidays coming and I'm on the social committee so have several events either already on the go, or need to be planned soon, and boy, it feels crazy around here. My table is covered with decorations for a work function this week and I have so many lists that I need a list of the lists!!!

    I think we'll revisit the another dog in our lives issue next year. After the cats and kids are in their own place and after winter. I've looked at the rescue site and there are so many adorable dogs in need of a home that I know that is the route we will eventually go when we are ready for that.

    In the mean time, I've told friends that after the cats are in their home, that I'll be available for pupsitting duties. Baby steps.

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate as usual this time of year! They will be good for keeping your mind occupied, no question. Don't forget to take a little bit of time for you in the midst of all your upcoming activity. Enjoy as much as you can, laugh often.

    btw - puppysitting is nice!

    We got a card from the IMS at the emergency hopsital that molly went to so frequently, this week. It was signed by all the staff that took care of her and they wrote of how they will miss her so much. That made me cry too.
    Then the next day I got a letter of a donation to a pet fund that the hospital supports. It does so much good for owners and pets. They made a donation in mollys name.
    Gawd this sucks so much.
    She made such an impact on our lives. She literally changed our lives. When I think of all my friend in the neighborhood, good friends, I met them all because of molly and our daily, 3 times a day walks. Now I don't see everyone every day as I use to.
    One set of neighbors said they thought we must be on vacation and then were just so sad when told molly wasn't with us any longer. They all stopped and said hello to her almost every single day.
    She brought them into our lives and we would have missed so much in this wonderful neighborhood if not for her.
    gads, I come here and I cry. It sucks. Yet where else could I possible talk about her and have people who understand.
