Well it's been about a month and I'd like to say it's better but it's not. Buddy's passing has hit me like a ton of bricks and I haven't been the same. We have a miniature dachshund and while she's a great dog, she's doesn't fill the hole left. I'm old enough to have had many dogs and I miss them all but I've never lost one as young as Buddy. It's without question the toughest loss I've ever had. We do have a new pup in the works so that's a great thing but I think it's gonna be a few months until that happens. Hopefully we'll be ready in the fall for nice long walks and swimming in the lake. Thanks for all the kind remarks everyone it has helped a lot.

Buddy. 9/20/2011-4/21/16 Good Boy! We miss you!

I lost my Gus on April 12th; he was only 7 and 1/2. Fate intervened and we were able to rescue a sweet young Golden about 10 days after losing Gus. But I still miss Gus terribly...on the one hand, I am sad that the pup is not Gus...and then on the other hand, I feel bad for wishing that the pup was Gus. He is who he is, and a very good boy at that, and I'm certain as the days go by my heart will feel less empty. I hope that yours will too.

Assure: That is so wonderful that you gave another Golden a loving home!
