    We were the same way when Rocky (white boxer) died. We got Buddy later the same month. We wanted to rescue and help out and didn't mean to replace Rocky. But now we love Buddy as much if not more. Hard to explain but we know Rocky understands.

    Hang in there Paul. Hugs!

    Did anyone post this after the tsunami in Japan? If so, I missed it.

    Wish I could speak Japanese, but down in the article it gives some translation.

    Just1Paul - I understand your loss and pain. Have sent you lots of love and strength, to help you get through the hard times.
    Try and hold on to the joyfull memories, that is the only way I've been able to make it. Still get teary eyed everyday for my little ones.
    So thankful for you and other great pet "owners" who give happy healthy homes to these lucky furry ones.

    Dez, my youngest, has still got demons in her. Watched her run up alongside her closest older "sistergurl" and slap the back of her head as she ran by. Like they say at the race track...."And their off!!" Reminded me of my bratty guy cousin when we were children!

    I do appreciate your post and how appropriate you put "owners" in parenthesis. Mona & Joey were my owners and they gave me so much more than I could ever give them. Being their Staff will always be the happiest times of my life.

    Staff - yep, that covers my title around here But, it is true, happiest times! We remember the demanding, paw stomping attitude with as much love as the cuddle memories. Take care, hope today was one that passed with less tears.

    just1paul, I'm so sorry to hear this. We, animal lovers truly understand your pain right now. I also had one who had the same physical problem. Not easy to watch and handle.
    I sincerely hope you get another new "friend." I know peoplw always say it's a mistake to do so, that you can never "replace" the one you lost. But I don't think we're trying to replace but just add new joy and love to our lives.

    Re: For animal lovers

    Dragonlady - Thank you for your post. At this time I am not planning on adopting, but I am not totally closing the door on the future. I need time to be just me without the responsibilty.

    On another note - A comment was made on my facebook about Joeys eyes which brought to mind his nose color.
    Normally Joeys nose was pale pink. If Joey was either causing "trouble" or in a playful or excited mood his nose color would change and get to a deep red color the more something was happening.
