Thanks again to the posters, I come back and re-read this every day. I know everyone goes thru this loss, but it's been a very long time though for me. Porsche was my daughters first dog, her lifelong friend and protector. She was never a just "pet" to us, she was family from day one. I still can't believe how much it hurts, especially watching our other dog searching the yard and house for her. She doesn't know what to lay against now.
