Thanks. We spent some time today looking at photos of Brookie’s life with us and it helped. Our smaller Aussie is still looking for her around the house, which is heartbreaking but also a sweet reminder that we aren’t the only ones who miss her.

Good Luck. There are no easy answers or solutions.

So true. With past dogs and cats, it has usually taken me a day or two to get my emotional bearings. I know it will get better, and soon my wife, kids and I will sit around sharing happy memories of this dog, just as we do with the others.

Meanwhile, I agree with Will Rogers: “If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”

it took me a couple of weeks to start to feel normal. Sadly all of that coincided with COVID and our lockdown here in NC. So things that I would’ve used to distract me weren’t available, such as movies or restaurants…

I do love finding old videos or pictures of Old Frieda. She was a very good dog for us, and game to hang out or go do something. She was a great companion. Your Brooklyn was probably a game for most things as well. Wish I had known her.

Got a nice new couch after waiting about two months due to COVID. Cats were scared at first but once they discovered it were thrilled beyond belief. It was pretty funny and made my day yesterday.

This is Finn. He enjoys taking showers.

My obnoxious cat walking all over my home workstation. Drives him nuts my wife and I are at home all the time and won’t feed him every 30 minutes.

Our cat goes between the shower curtains. We call it “the 4th dimension” and then he’ll lash out those razor sharp claws if we get to close.
It’s a new challenge paradigm to hygene, that’s for sure…

Are you an Aussie only family?

Chester loves his ball.

No, but we like the breed and this is our third one.

We had to say goodbye to our 5-month-old puppy yesterday. About a week and a half ago we noticed he wasn’t eating much and was lethargic and was vomiting, etc. Each day he was getting worse and after a couple of vet trips and multiple tests and x-rays we found out he had Leukemia of all things. Even when he was too sick to stand up he would wag his tail when he saw me. He was a sweet puppy and we are very heart-broken. RIP Milo.

Man, that is rough. I’ve only had this once with a puppy my mom and dad got, so not directly for me. Their puppy had encephalitis, and it was terminal. The puppy was about the same age as yours. My mom was crushed for a few months. I hope you guys are doing well.

Dogs are great, even when they’re not well they want so badly do be with their people and please their people. Good luck.

Nothing sadder than losing a dog. I’m very sorry to hear of your loss.
