We lost our beloved Dudley on October 28, 2014. We miss him so very much! He now sits on our shelf in our living room with his blanket, leash and collar. Some people will say, "he was just a dog" or "he was only a pet". If you have never had a pet, then you don't know what you are missing! He was
We now have another Beagle. Her name is Chloe.
She has made herself right at home. Do you think she is comfortable? She has cuddled up right next to my grandson, Cayden. She has warmed right up to our other animals and they to her as well. She is a wonderful dog but has a whole different personality than Dudley had. Each animal is different and special in their own way. We love her and she is now a part of our family. :)
Have you lost a special animal and how did you deal with the loss? Did you get another animal?
I cried lots of tears with the loss of Dudley. Every time I turned around, I expected him to be there as he was always right under my feet.
We did get another dog as you see above, Chloe. Suzie our basset hound just seemed so lost without Dudley, so we decided to get another dog so she wouldn't be so lonely. We loved our beagle very much, so decided to get another one. Chloe and Suzie have become friends/sisters and we have a new family member. She and Charlie have become used to each other as well. I am home all the time and our animals keep me company as well as letting me know when someone comes near our home. Sometimes our neighbors chickens visit our yard and I hear about it as the dogs bark up a storm.
Here are some of them visiting our other neighbors yard and our dogs let us know about that as well. I don't mind them visiting, but I do worry about them getting hit by a car as they have to cross the street to come to visit. There are usually about 7 to 9 of them that come over. So far, all has been fine and hope it stays that way.
Thanks for visiting! Make it a great day! :) Mrs. T
