While I am grieving her loss, I realize that while there can be no replacement for her - - - there will be another special friend in my life someday . . .
As I am all too aware of the cruelty that people are capable of, I will, when it is time - - - be seeking someone else's unwanted dog. I will adopt from a shelter. There are enough homeless dogs who need a loving home - - - that it would be less than humane to do otherwise . . .
