I think she's a great dog, and is adept at making herself right at home......in your bed!

I love the look you're giving her in the second picture.......

She looks like such a sweet girl! I'm missing my Golden, who we had to put down right before Thanksgiving. I'm thinking about another dog...we always adopt rescues.

She's..something.If she was human I would call her a crackhead/meth freak.

There are things not right about that breed

Don't get me wrong..she isn't my budster but she is...something

She's ten megatons of energy in a twenty pound dog

She doesn't have the Budster to wear her out so she takes it out on me

She knows I'm sad so she plays with me.She keeps bringing me chewtoys to fight her over.

I know there will be another Budster or another Major somewhere.It's hard.Trust me..I know.You and I will both find another *soulmate* dog.Trust me...I know how hard it is but remember,there is a dog out there who is your soulmate who needs a home....remember who we lost...trust me...I think about him 24/7 right now...but remember...there are animals out there who need people like us to show them they can know love after all.

It will get better for both of us.

The Wonder terrier was one hour from being euthanized when i adopted her.Things work out over time.Karma has a way of putting us where we need to be when we need to be there.

We both hurt right now but I know when the time is right there will be another Budster in my life and it will happen for you too.

Don't be afraid to look.Go to your local shelter and just look.That's where I found the Budster...and where I found crackhead....err I mean Katie

They are there just waiting for people like us to welcome them into our lives.

The only consolation for losing a pet is that you can give a home to another animal who needs one and it sounds like your home is one of the best places a dog could hope to live. I hope your next soulmate shows up soon, but it does looke like Katie is doing her best to console you both.

sharing our bed with Sam the Welsh terrier, for the last 14 years. He loves to hog the pillows. He's right beside me now, sending greetings to Katie. He had that same crazy intense energy, but is slowing down a bit now.
