    So sorry for the loss of your precious baby. Hope Custer and you all are feeling better although nothing can replace your bully. I know how you feel and I my Diva grieved so deeply when Samson passed. Very similar to Custer.

    First let me offer my condolences on your loss of Sherman. I know first hand how devastating it can be for all. We suddenly lost our Raven in June and Tyson fell into such a deep depression I couldn't stand to watch it. While we were all grieving he was really lost. So I searched out a new sister for him. When we brought her home he took to her immediately. If you can afford it or can find a dog in your local rescue it would be a good idea. People told me not to worry becuase he would get over it but I didn't see any sign of it.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.

    I worry about getting a puppy. We both work regular work hours. We have a dog walker come in each day to take Custer out. She used to come let them both out...she stays and plays with him and he loves her, but it isn't the same as being home alone most of the day...when you are used to having a brother you snuggled with and just was with.

    Last night he kept disappearing. We found him under the bed, looking. This compounds our grief.

    I am wondering if we should not look for someone with a bulldog brother/sister for him that is a little older.


    Wondering how you and Custer are doing?

    Thank you for asking!

    Custer is still mopey and sad.

    We leave this weekend to bring home his new sister/brother.

    We are being offered a choice (or both...we can't take both, so it will be one) between two gorgeous dogs from a friend of a breeder/show dog friend of ours. We are so excited.

    Custer has not been the same. Our dog walker told me the other day she is having to make him get out of bed, make him go outside. My 8 year old granddaughter said Tuesday night that we shouldn't wait too much longer, he's been sad long enough.

    She is right.

    So, Saturday morning, we'll load Custer in the car, head to Illinois, and bring him home with a brother or sister. I will post photos.

    On our way home, we will stop at the lake house (Lake Michigan, on the dunes.)

    It is one of Custer's favorite places on earth. Last time we were there, he wouldn't run on the beach, or jump on the paddle board all excited to go out. He lay at our feet and was too quiet. (see photos).

    Here's hoping his new sibling will bring him back to us all happy and goofy...we get glimpses of it, and love that.
