Thanks so much ljsunny. Yes, they do leave a big hole in our hearts, but getting another animal does help fill the void, so we have adopted 2 rescue dogs, Max, a pit/boxer mix and Tank, a pit, who was fostered for 1 year + 1 day. I don't know why he wasn't adopted sooner, 'cause he's a real sweety and very well trained. Anyway, Cotton, Max and Tank are getting along great.
It's so funny to see Tank and Max. Everyone has a bed but these two insist on sleeping on the same bed. LOL One will have his head on the others shoulder and that one will have his legs on the other, or one will be laying half off the bed. LOL
