There are a lot of pet lovers on this forum Susan, myself included. When we lost our Brandy about a year and half ago she was the last dog we were going to have. She was perfect and we knew we would never find another dog that came close to the dog she was. Yeah, that mind set lasted a couple of months and I couldn't take spending so much time alone in a dead house.
Fast forward to today. I have a 17 mo old bichon and almost 11 mo old shih tzu that I have had since they were tiny puppies. Oh believe me this house is alive now
I usually lay down on the couch in the late afternoons to rest for awhile and Krissy, the bichon, cuddles as close to my stomach as she can get and Tique, the shih tzu, gets behind my knees and they seem to know that it is Mommy's rest time and they take a nap.
Bichon's are very intelligent dogs, that's what Brandy was, and Krissy seems to know where I hurt the worse and goes to that spot.
I told DH if I had a few more dogs I wouldn't need a heating pad. From the look he gave me I don't think he agrees.
luv and hugs
