How lovely to hear from you again and to hear the good news. Philbert, what a lovely name and where is the pic of him? And of course would I love to see the painting that your uncle did of Scooter.
First things first – so lovely Scooter. Melissa, you will forever miss Scooter – I do not believe that this will ever end, but you will certainly learn to accept and live with this. Life goes on and nothing ever stays - there is constant change. And Scooter should be in your memories until the end of time, in a nice, calm and constant way.
Now Philbert – I am so glad to read you have a new challenge, a new love and a new start with a new dog. Of course are you ready for the new – it will certainly not be like the old – the new is always connected to some fears as it is the unknown. So I would suggest to open your heart for the new family member like you opened your heart for Craig.
A marriage takes some time, living together takes some time and the acceptance that the two of you are of course different people with different styles. It should be like that otherwise you could talk to your mirror, lol.
I kinda envy you for all the new challenges in your life that you will certainly master very well.
My best wishes are with you, with your husband Craig and the new member of the family: Philbert. Scooter is surely very proud of you, dear friend.
Big fat hugs
