Re: Pictures of dogs in FJs
It's been over two months since Jack passed away. It still hurts, but the pain has become less frequent and less severe (mostly). We recently reached out to a local malamute rescue organization about walking dogs and maybe fostering. We sprung this guy from his kennel a few times last week and have begun to consider fostering him. He has been at our house the last 3-4 days and is really doing well, but he has some dog reactivity that needs work. I keep trying to tell him that if he plays his cards right, he could have a great life with us. Its nice having a dog around again, even if it sometimes reminds us of Jack.
To many of us dogs are like family members. Loosing them hurts, the pain just dulls over time, but never quite goes away.
We had to say goodbye to 2 of our dogs last year. Hermes, an Africanis mix due to old age and then 3 months later Naledi, a SPCA special had to be put down just a few days before I returned from tour in Djibouti, she suffered from very advanced liver and spleen cancer, which had not been detected before.
A few months later we moved on, our Boerboel missed dog company. So we got a proper Africanis girl, Isisa. Lovely girl.
You got my deepest sympathies and I hope all goes well with that pretty boy you got there.
