    Thank you sir, I have been trying to do that very thing, trying to supplant the many beautiful memories I have of her, over the bad ones at the end. We know going in when we take on the responsibility of a pet, that in most cases we will out live them, and that when their time comes it's always sad. We go on though, just as we do when we lose a loved one in our family. It is just the way of life.

    What is difficult is life intrudes. My wife as broken up as she is, has a family baby shower to attend over the weekend, and had to pull herself together and go out for a while to purchase a gift. I had some errands to run, but I can't bring myself to leave Toto. It's been a very long time since he was all by himself. Several years ago we had to have one of Bella's little legs operated on and he had to be alone until she recuperated. Thank you for your comments.

    Many condolences from a family with two dogs, one for mom and one for me. They have such great personalities and always seem to pick someone they can be a partner with. Sorry for your loss.

    Sorry to hear that.

    I really don't know what to say to console someone when their dog passes away. That was me many years ago, and there's really nothing I can think of to say. :(

    So sorry for your loss. Dogs are wonderful friends whose only fault is their all too short lives with us.
