Thank you.. Thank you.. Thank you ... One and all.
The pain is still so fresh in my heart reading your posts made me both happy and sad. I still can barely say Zeke's name with out a tear to follow.
He was one in a million. He had his little querks but that's what made him a wonderful best friend.
He gave me lots of reasons to get out of bed in the morning .. he even knew that in order for me to be able to pull myself out of bed, when I was in tremendous pain, to lay at the foot of the bed so I could use the sheet and pull. He never left the bed when I was in it. Nor did he leave my side when I was home. He knew I needed him there for hundreds of reasons.
When I had surgery on my leg about 4 years ago the knew he wasn't to jump up on my lap.. he waited nearly 4 months and then one day.. he put his fluffy paw on my lap as if to say "is it O.K. now??.. Can I sit on your lap for a while and snuggle" Zekey weighed 40 pounds but never quite understood that he was a pretty big dog to a small person like me. He knew me better than I knew myself and for that I will be eternally greatful to him.
Someday I know I will find another furbaby, but it will have to be just the right friend. But as Tyno said.. he can never be replaced. I will only adopt a dog that needs a home. My home is pound puppy friendly.
Again many thanks for all of your kind words.
