    thank you for posting this... I did not see it the first time around. I just remember the sudden loss of your handsome boy and I too feel and share your pain. Very similar situation with Nitshcke woke up in the morning he was sick, took him to the vet thinking he would be home that night, NEVER did I think I would be holding him in hysterics saying goodbye 6 hours later. It has been 15 months and the pain is as deep as it was on that day

    Worse day of my life.

    Then came back home really upset so gathered up all the dog stuff in our home and donated it to our local shelter.....8 days later in walks Lulu into our life.

    It is so amazing how she has so many of the EXACT same traits as Heff did. I keep telling my wife that she is Heff re incarnated. Except right now she is into her "Bratty" stage and is starting to wreck stuff in the home...but dang how can you possibly get mad at that face. My wife gets mad as me and says man she can do anything she wants and you will just not discipline her! I say of course not look at how cute she is!

    I'm glad you have Lulu (cute name). I can only imagine your sadness re Heff. Life is so precious. When I hear stories like yours, I honestly get tears in my eyes as I think of my babies and the day when their day comes. I wished they lived longer! How old is Lulu now? Our Gidget is 4.5 months old and each day that passes, I fall more in love with her. She's cheeky and a real busy body, into everything, annoys her older brother Bruno (2.5 years old) but it's so funny watching them together. Bruno is the real gentleman while Gidget is a real bossy boots. I wish you well with Lulu and may Heff be snoring happily at the rainbow bridge.

    All the best,
    Gloria
