    Default Picture of Drover, the little Wonky dog.

    It close to a month now since the little guy has been gone.
    I still haven't packed away his kennel or any of his things for that matter.
    I still see him in certain parts of the house and the park I would take him to.
    He was a lot of work but gees i miss him.
    The day he was put to sleep, I had Rambo with me at the vet too, and as soon as
    we got home, Rambo ran straight to Drover's kennel and hung around "his" area for
    the rest of the day.
    Each day is easier but still a void in my life.

    Hi R.M.

    Thanks for sharing that.
    Little Drover was certainly a special dog. The pictures and memories are something you'll always have and i'm very pleased you want to share them with us all.
    Hope you and Rambo are doing better with each day.

    Yes, its hard when their presence lingers but its also oddly comforting. It fades after time, probably a good thing.

    No wonder you miss him, he looks as if he was a really sweet little fellow

    Loss of our hero's is such a weird journey. You can be nearly in tears with missing them, feeling like your so empty and alone, then you remember some silly antic they got up to, and your smiling. and visa versa. It knocked me around a bit with each of them, as they've passed.
    Im glad you shared the grief from losing a dog. Because inevitably, we will all be in your shoes at some time. You cant have the moments and memories, without the loss at the end.
    I think they are worth it.
    My husband usually drops a dog in my lap after 2 yrs, if ive not done so already. and that is my final step. When i begin a new journey, with another dog. Who is entirely different to the last, but also in your heart.

    Thank you everyone.
    Bernie, you are spot on with your comments.
    I look at his pictures and smile warmly.........he was a sweet but tortured little soul.
    I look at his kennel and feel sadness.
    I guess as the saying goes.....time will heal.

    It's interesting but not surprising how a dog that kept you all so busy has left a big hole in your lives.

    If you don't want to keep his things, a rescue might be able to use them. Maybe not the one you got him from though.

    There's lots of rescues listed on petrescue.com.au - some more deserving (or even interested in second hand gear) than others.

    Maybe when you're ready you can try again to provide a nice dog a good home.
