    Naw don't cry my friend. He is not used to loss, and has been having a darned hard time understanding why this happened to us.
    He bonded with Inca very quickly, which made it harder for him. That morning my husband ended up racing him to his Grandmother's house as it was just too much. He is nearly 10, but he is very young emotionally IYKWIM.

    Husband spotted him out on the trampoline last night bouncing up and down saying the name "Logan" over and over. It was good to see his mind move to other things.

    Beautiful pics.

    We do what we have to for the sake of children. I remember losing a cat at as a child, we had only had it for a short time, it was replaced quickly but even now as an adult I remember BOTH of them fondly.

    I remind the skids that it is our job with these puppies to prepare them for other families. They are not here for keeps, and that we are a "Show Home". Even the ones that we are keeping may not turn out and while I would love to keep them all, we can't.

    If this all comes together and works out for you I would really love to be able to tell the skids how much your son is looking forward to this and how much better it made him feel. This may help them understand that dogs can be loved by more than one family in their lifetime.

    My fingers are crossed that this all comes together.

    Have PMed you Occy. They are soft, but at least they are always upright. Apparently the co-owner had taped them with incorrect tape, which has worsened the problem I think, according to the breeder.

    Hey, you're welcome to come and TRY to steal her anytime. I haven't forgotten that I still have to win the battle to get you to say you're a Kelpie!!!

    My youngest son doesn't cope well with death either and he is 15. He was an absolute mess when Rex died...putting of photos and drawing saying "this was Rex's favourite spot"...had nightmares etc and broke down when Poosah had to be pts.

    It warms my heart that he has a connection to Logan from the beginning regarding her name...must be fate my friend

    Oh Lord I hope so, Cleas.

    I am tired of us all feeling we're cursed.
    It's stupid I know, but ever since we bought this house, we have had nothing but REALLY bad luck. We've never known anything like it before!
    I guess it runs in cycles, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna let it get us down.

However, I was referred on, and today I was contacted by a breeder who is looking for a suitable home for one of her returned bitches, an older puppy/young adult.

    I have discussed this dog with her at length to ascertain suitability for our needs and the dog's, and yeah, she sounds like a great fit.

    She has lived with cats successfully without any dramas, has been with two children younger than ours, and allegedly has never shown an iota of aggression to either dogs or people. Seems she has been well socialised. Yay!

    It occured to me that had Inca still been here, I would have seriously considered this dog anyway, so my family and I have made the decision to go ahead with this opportunity.

    For any members (although I don't actually think that's gonna happen here) who think I should spend an 'allocated' specific amount of time mourning, please refrain from posting in this thread. Inca has gone and although I loved her, nothing can bring her back. This is a 'good news' thread - one my family and I could do with.
    Not at all are you making this decision too soon, I totally unferstand. I'm in similar position with Geisha, I know when she goes to play under the Rainbow Bridge I will get a Staffy as soon as possible. Main reason for me is I so badly miss the interaction with Geisha, I love her to bits, but it not the same as it used to be with having her running thru the house like a bat out of hell, jumping on the bed etc. Plus I need a "dogs presence" in our yard to deter some unwanted people who could get into our yard from one end and I wouldnt be able to hear them. Good luck with your GSD and I hope it works out for you.
