    Bullies never cease amazing me with how sensitive they are.

    Truman truly looks sad and his paw on Linus' stone tears at my heart.

    I was inconsolable when I lost Brutus in January after having him 7 months.

    Just can't imagine how much losing your Linus hurts...

    RIP beloved boy.

    Thanks everyone!

    You know, sometimes I really thought I was just putting my own human emotions about Linus on to Truman. Animals are so much more resilient than humans, I think! But once we received this stone, I, for the life of me, could not figure out why he would just lay near it - away from us, away from the television, just with the stone. Then he started putting his paws on it and sleeping and I am totally convinced there is something special around it that he can feel. I know it sounds wacky but what other explanation is there?

    @Libra926 To answer your question, I have slowly started the process of cleaning and removing some of Linus' things. When the baby came and we had company in town, I finally washed and moved his dog bed. To that point, I had it in the living room with a stuffed bulldog in it. (Weird, I know!) I have a box of toys that he used in my living room still and I haven't moved those yet. Truman doesn't express a strong interest in those items, even though they smell like Linus still (I assume)...just the stone. He guards it like a sentinel.

    We are planning on having our yard landscaped in the spring and will be placing it outside under a tree we'll plant in Linus' memory.

    "We are planning on having our yard landscaped in the spring, will be placing it outside under a tree we'll plant in Linus' memory."

    Jill, we brought Brutus home and I buried him beneath a tree outside my bedroom
    window because I promised a furever home and in this instance, cremation didn't
    feel right. And I feel like you do about a special aura surrounding Linus' stone that
    Truman can sense, when I saw the pic, that's what I think is happening. Reminds
    me of Bev & Abby and what she was told that Abby's presence is around.

    You just brought tears to my eyes!!! I really do think losing your pet is just like losing a family member. It's not easy! I hope you are coping okay! Truman looks like he really loved Linus! That picture is just too sweet for words! I'm sorry for your loss!
