Annette - I agree with Debi: she's adorable. Oh, I'll bet her ears were so very soft and silky.
I do a lot of photo and photo editing work and the day after he died, even though I didn't feel like doing anything but crying, shouting and screaming, I sat and did a photo collage of Goobie on the rainbow path and used it in my emailed announcement of his passing to family members and friends. Then, in the depths of despair during the second week, I began an album of his photos. It was very difficult to do but when I felt a bout of the sobs coming on, for some reason it helped to look at the photos while I cried my eyes out. Now, I look at them when I feel a surge of the lonelies...and, yes, I talk to them. Grief is not only a long, hard, rough road, it can be a weird one, too. I'll bet everyone on this site has found some special way or combination of ways to cope that works for them - embroidery, quilting, jewelry, poems, art, essays, gardening, cleaning the fridge, volunteering at the shelter, etc. You'll find one for yourself as the days go by. Don't feel like you're doing it alone because we'll be keeping you and your girl in our thoughts.
Her ears were indeed very silky,but she didn't like me touching them too much because she was always worried I'd be cleaning her ears and she couldn't stand that ;) I petted them anyway since it was just hard not to.
