So sorry for your loss, it is hard to see a loved one leave for the Rainbow Bridge. Many people will not share the empathy of a lost companion with you so you do your best to reach out to sites like this or share your feelings with close family and friends. We lost our Chihuahua 11 days ago and it is still hard to dismiss the rituals we shared with Vegas (our Chihuahua). You too will miss those rituals but you will also smile remembering the joy you shared. It will become easier in time but from what I understand you will always have a space in your heart dedicated to your Taffy.
Best wishes and sympathy to you for the loss of your close friend.
