      I had the weirdest dream with my first dog in it a few nights ago. Teddy has been gone for 45 years but there he was, full of life. Just as in life he was trying to escape our yard and I was running after him. It was great though, because there he was in full colour, his glorious coat of brown, black and white shining. Most of my photos of him are black and white, as they are of everything back then. I have no idea what brought that dream about but I was glad to see him.
      In the months after we lost him I was torn between blaming myself for the possibility of having let it go too long ( had I taken him sooner I would have regretted that as well...its just how I am) and some days feeling shocked at how happy the memories were making me to the devastation of reaching to my left and him not being there...his empty bowls...you know...his leash collar and toys in my truck....so yes some days are less painful, then it comes back. I suppose in more time it will ease a bit. If I close my eyes in a moment of quiet and try hard I can remember exactly what it felt like to walk with him.

      Thanks everyone -for popping in to share this with me, just like you all did during my time with him while he was sick and declining. I appreciate it so much.

      We all share your pain and truly empathize with you. These dogs have a way of worming their way into our hearts, our bond with them is something very special. I've sent 9 over The Bridge, two who were less than 20 months old. Every loss hurt me to my core, and not a day goes by that I don't think of each and every one of them.

      My best to you at this sad time.
