So sorry for your loss. I know all too well how it feels I
lost my Service dog that I had for 12 years She passed 3 years
ago and I swear I still feel her on the bed or hear her
walking on the tile nails clicking around. I also lost my
little budgie, I took him in years ago He was here 9 years and
he was so great had so much personality it was amazing. Just
remember they will be there when we get there and they are
watching us and checking on us from time to time.
