mountaintosea, I'm so sorry for your loss. From her photo she looked like a dog with a lot of sweetness in her.

You have my great sympathy. This too shall pass but no without pain and sadness.

According to your thermometer, it is about 70 but then they are lying in the shade on a tile floor with a breeze. The readings are about 26-29 deg C with 75%-80% humidlty. Love it!

Two years ago yesterday we brought her home from the Humane Society. It was completely unexpected -- we were there for other business and there she was, perfect and waiting. It was like gold from heaven, like bringing home Old Yeller and Lassie combined. I've never seen a dog so gentle, calm and kind. We totally lucked out.

Tomorrow marks one week since I lost my beloved cat. Today I cleaned the house for the first time since he died. It was a heartbreaking experience. Signs of him everywhere. Here's the last picture I took of him while he was still himself. After this, he declined very quickly.

Dawg, since you twisted my arm, here are three! I'm sorry to say the drool is authentic, as is the utterly enormous tongue.

She's beautiful Urchina! How wonderful you gave her the home she was looking for. So many great animals out there looking for someone to love them.

A really good looking dog! I can't go to a humane society for fear of bringing home another one. One is really all I can handle right now. Down the road in a different house, might get another. But that would also hamper traveling, so there you go. Always something.

Did you have another pet when you got her?

Yes, we had (and still have) two indoor-only cats, both also shelter rescues.
Right now, the one dog is the best choice for us, as we get all the benefits of a dog with a more intense one-on-one relationship with her. She's also easier to walk, feed, exercise, etc. than two dogs would be, and we don't have room for another crate in the house (~980 sq ft condo)! We're not into yard dogs. Truthfully, there's not much excess floor space anyway, after she's stretched out on it!

Thanks for the nice comments -- we think she's the Most Amazing Dog Ever, as well as utterly beautiful. So nice when it works out that way!

Yup, signs of the past - our princess of the house, Little, has been gone a couple years and I noticed this morning a dull spot on a stair newel post where she used to always rub her chin... It's not bad to remember them - kind of cherish that little pain..

Here are two photos photo I took out our window five minutes ago of a fox (kit fox?) that we see around here now and then. She's the size of a large cat. I'll keep the camera handy and try to get some better shots next time.

Yesterday she was carrying one of her offspring (I think -- it may have been another animal) in her mouth.

This is a picture of newest grand-critter, Cricket. She zonked out on the way to her new home. We get to meet her in a couple of weeks when we visit with our kids. She's making her home with two old schnauzers and one curious lab.
