I feel your pain. Literally. We had to put our Sheltie to sleep day before yesterday. The solace I'm taking is that she actually lived a couple years longer than the vet expected. But we still miss her. I miss them all that we have lost. Homer and I both love critters, so we've always had a houseful. We have had as many as three dogs and four cats. We are down to four cats, no dogs. We had to put our 18yo kitty to sleep last summer, and I still have not quite gotten over that one, either.

One of the kitties in particular took it hard. She absolutely adored our Sheltie, and would rub up on the Sheltie all the time - to the point that the Sheltie would be like, "Enough already", but she would never be mean to the kitties. She was just so sweet.

When the puppies were little, every morning we had "Puppy Time". I would yell out, "It's puppy time!" And the two pups (the third was an adult, but he would occasionally join in) would come and jump up onto my bed and bounce all over me. Homer wants to get another dog, but I know how much work they are and I'm not ready to take on the extra work. It would be me taking it on as Homer is having issues walking, and our girls are planning on moving our in the next few months.

But I miss my doggies.
