It sounds like you're healing nicely, and learning the lessons we all learn every time we say goodbye. Some of those are: It's possible to heal and cry at the same time; and it's possible to miss our angels and fall in love with someone new simultaneously. I love that you have made yarns with the dog hair! I have a few huge wads of T.J.'s fur that I saved over the years. My niece does beautiful yarn work (both knitting and crocheting), and I would love to have her make me something small with T.J.'s fur. I know there wouldn't be enough on it's own, but if it were incorporated into another yarn in the spinning process, I know it would be lovely. Maybe one of those small neck scarves with the buttons to hold it in place. She made me a beautiful one for Christmas last year. Wishing you the best of luck in your search for a new companion in your home. What am I saying, "Luck?" We all know it's fate. 100% part of The Plan! Ear scratches and head bonks to your furs, and hugs to you!
