I am so sorry for your sadness. As I write, I cry for you but know, with absolute certainty, that dogs do go to Heaven. Revelations 5:13. I am so glad that you had Duchess for so long, my best boy, Oswald, went into God's care at age 8. And I am glad you held her, and cried into her fur. And only someone as sick as we are, can understand how that tiredness and emotional pain steals away what little energy we have. I hope, that's what God gives us, that you will look around for just the right dog, and I believe that Duchess would tell you to love another dog, too. sue
God knows, even if I don't....
