Ya know Mike , Im sure this seems like a world away. But before long you will want another dog and the excitement of picking one out. The fun of training it and all sure does take the sting out of it.
We went down the shelter about a month after and grabbed 2 cats ( brother and sister) They are cool, but certainly no dog. 2 months later I got a black lab from a rescue in Missisippi. I will always miss the one I put down last sept , but this guy is my new bud.
