    I feel for you, you are obviously struggling with your loss but at the same time you are not ashamed to embrace it.

    Three years ago I loss my dog of all dogs Jodi, I had bred her myself and we just clicked, she was my last Kelpie, then I got Gemma. When Gemma was 9mths old Jodi died at age 11 very suddenly in her sleep. 11 was very young for my dogs. For a while I wondered if Gemma, a big clumsy goose had some how attributed to her death. I was cranky at my Step-daughter because I kept wondering what if I hadn't been running her around to her dance concert that night?? Jodi would of been in the house with me would that have changed things? Would I have noticed that she was not well?

    Eventually I opened my heart to Gem and as you know there are 3 more. Non of them are my "best girl", but they have personalities of their own and give me so much.

    I have photo's of my past dogs on the wall in the family room off the kitchen and as I cook etc I often look up at them and smile.

    It's been 6 months since cappy died and I'm still not ready for a puppy. It's been 4 months since flash and billie died and I don't want another senior yet. It has nothing to do with not wanting to 'replace' them, I just can't invest emotionally right now. So instead, I have cats - a different level if emotional investment. Of course there is doofus but he was already here.

    I think, if you're ready, you're ready.

    Forget about honour or dishonour. Terry is gone the same way cappy is. Nothing you do will bring himback. You can only honour the memory not live in the past.

    Shads died a year ago and Blacky in 2002. I loved them both long and hard.
    Everyone reacts differently but when Pretty became mine I thanked Shads. The love I felt for him enables me to love another as it was such a wonderful experience. Much like people who later remarry, due to a death of a spouse, feel that it is not in the least disrespectful as it is in fact a tribute to them as it was positive and they feel they would like to do it again. It does not mean you forget them. You put them in their special, untouchable place and smile.

    Don't dwell on that aspect, though yea, it is hard not to. Enjoy the times you have and add it to a memory store that later, you can draw on. I have many smiling memories. At first you smile through tears, then you smile with nostalgia, and sometimes tears again. Store up those moments. I would see him do something and think I have to add that one!
