Thanks everyone.

We are empty nesters, and the dogs get a lot of attention... they encourage us to walk and get out, so we have lots of love to give.

Once we get on top of the grief, we plan to give another rescue a forever home.
Our bigger concern is Cole.
He is a people lovey, and very sweet, he likes little dogs, and has a sweet spot for Lab's, but does not like puppies, or Boxer's or Shepard's..
We have some work to do with him...

We all share your burden with you.

After losing many dogs through the years that always had siblings... dogs definitely grieve the loss of their furry brothers and sisters... sometimes very deeply. its our experience that the grief is virtually gone when a new pup joins the family...

Well, its been a month now.
We got her ashes back, so she is home, and they did a wonderful job.
A lovely classy Ceder box, a ceramic paw print, and a certificate to say it was her.
We took the pictures we had, and put them on a shelf at the top of our staircase, with her ashes, collar and leash.

Our Insurance (Pet's Best), were wonderful and caring, and got us a check for the surgery quickly, and even covered the Cremation.

It's been hard.
Walking just Cole around our neighborhood, people just ask where is Moose. The mailman cried, the neighbors cried, she was just that known and loved.

Some odd things...
I woke one night to her soft woof, and realized it was not her...

We also had a really odd moment with Cole.
He went to the Toybox, took out a ball, and took it upstairs... I passed him by, and he looked at me, tossed the ball in the air, laid down, and looked up at the place we setup her ashes and pics. I am sure he was inviting her to play. I called my GF up, and he did it again... we both broke down.

Cole has been good... he seems to have relaxed into the lower energy dog he wants to be without her constant stimulation, and he sleeps a lot.

He is eating fine, and enjoys our walks as normal, but I notice he seems to be craving both people and dog attention.

We bought him a kiddy pool today, and he had fun splashing about in it!

Key air, thank you for sharing this heartfelt story and pictures. It strengthens your story and clarifies it for those of us reading. I must admit....looking back at all your pictures and reading ....especially, "Cole bringing the ball to is sister" ....brought me to tears. Moose waits for you all. God bless you and help you deal with your grief. Evelyn.

One moment I had not shared...

This was the morning after she passed...
We woke, and I looked out across the bay to see this.

We felt Moose was saying "See Ya Later" as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge...

Cole is settled in.
I swear he got more grey in the last 3 months... maybe I did too!
Here he is staring down a Preying Mantis at the weekend!

I have started looking at other dogs, but its hard.
Moose cannot be replaced, but to know there are Dogs out there that we could love, that are being euthanized because they are Pitt mixes, or unwanted..
Robyn will barely look at all, and cries if she does.
Time will heal.

Yeah, it's so hard. Quinn died almost 12 years ago. It still hurts even though there are many others in our lives now.
