Thank you for your kind words. I am so sorry you experienced your losses so close together , too. It's just not something I can conceive of, but it happens. I am feeling almost numb today, 9 days after losing Willie. I talk to him and Edo all the time...it's the only way I'll get through these days. It's winter, and I can curl up and keep the world at bay for a while. And open the windows to make sunny spots for them as it moves across the room. I feel Willie still very close. Edo was ready and his energy feels large, big, universal. Willie is near...he wasn't ready . My only solace is that while he was amazing for me, he was a rescue and had some very deep wounds to his psyche. He would get crazy about certain people, and he wasn't a dog I could have around most people. High strung and high tension. And though he improved with training and wanted to be really good all the time, there was something in him that was always strung tight. I just feel the energy in him was more than his body could hold, but now, with a suitcase full of love and trust , he can go and express and share that love and trust in a healthy body. They are all playing together now
