I've taken two of my cherished terriers to be put to sleep...a jack called Bramble,16, and Border called Willy,15.
Both my best friends...they now sit in wooden boxes on my hearth next to their photos...
As you say Clint “get a new one “ nothing will replace the dog/dogs you lost but another will fill the void. And as someone pointed out you go from a chilled out older dog to a total nut job of a pup.
butter would not melt in this ones mouth but looks are deceiving as she has a personality that does not match her size. At 12 weeks she has mastered the stairs sits at the door yelping to go out to the toilet and can sit and give her paw on command for a treat. The next few months should be fun.
This is my old staffie Maggie, she died two years ago also at 16 - a good age for her breed.
She was a diamond, never forgotten.
This is how I remember her, enjoying basking in the sun. View attachment 47447
