Thanks Obsessed, it's sure different without him, not only the year went by quick, but the fifteen years he was with me flew by. Some things you enjoy in life are only gong to come by once. Not only Toto, but other things in my life, once in a while I was able to realize it. I always knew one day I'd be without Toto, I just didn't want to face it. He really was special to me, I can still remember every detail of his last day. My golfing buddy once said, you think more of that dog than you do me. I said just don't fall overboard at the same time he does, and you'll never know for sure. I hope your step-daughter can hold onto Roo as long as possible, it funny but at the last of their lives, they seem to know it and want to be around you all of the time.
