Thanks everyone for your comments about my doggies.
Gabriel...Thank you, and you're correct...the pain never goes away.
Buglover...Nikki was just a big fur ball. She was a very loving and loyal pet.
Uncle David...I love my doggies too.
Unklescott...Nikki was with me for almost 13 years. I got her when she was six weeks old, and lost her six weeks shy of her 13th birthday. That's one of the last pics I have of her. I was out raking the leaves and took her out front with me, and I thought it made a great picture. I think she looks so regal in that picture.
Oops...I just realized you were talking about the pic of Mac and Mocha. That was the first night we brought Mocha home, and they were getting to know each other. I love the pic where Mocha is laying on my husbands stomach...that's so cute to me.
