Thank you so much Kathryn and apologies for not replying sooner (my husband was rushed into hospital Thursday, what a week!)
Your kind words mean so much. I am truly sorry for your loss too, we were so blessed to have been loved unconditionally by our furbabies. I feel for people who have never experienced that depth of love and devotion.
6 years ago Daisy had to undergo two major spine operations and the latter left her with slight nerve damage and a limp. As weird as this may sound, yesterday I was in the park, I had taken a friend to feed the squirrels, when a pigeon came over to me with a limp on his left side (the same as Dais) I fed him for a while then he cooed and just stayed sat next to me until my friend was finished. I feel this was Dais trying to tell me she was still with me.
I know exactly what you mean about the emptiness, it is consuming.
Sending you hugs and thinking of you
Always in my heart, until we meet again baby girl xxx
