" Anne.. Thank you,I will. I just cannot think of the future without my two brown eyed "guys". Ben was a black and white portuguese water dog. He never barked at another animal.Not a mean bone in his body.Such a sweet loving dog.A real…"
" Anne..Thank you so much for your comment. As I start this sad day,I will think of Ben walking next to Jim with his tail showing how happy he is to be with his buddy. I so miss them both. Thank you for your gift of caring."

I lost "my david" 2 years ago in may. I thought I was doing much better, but then it hits me all over again like a freight train. Worst times are weekends...nothing to look forward too. Greatest friends in the world seem to be the hardest to be around. 3 couples and our kids vacationed together for 7 summers. I love them but cant handle the obviousness of who is missing at our get togethers. Back out most of the time.
Thank you for desiring to be a friend, and I am honored. I do have some trouble with my friend message connection. However feel free to drop a message anytime. We all are in a journey that needs one another.
