My thoughts are with you. Somehow dogs get into our psyche in a way that, much as I loved and miss my old boys, cats don't for me. They are less attuned to our feelings; most anyway. I fear the loss of Snippet already and he's only three. Silly I know.
Hi Em, it's daft isn't it, must have been seeing the dogs on the green this morning. Snippet has got a long way to go yet;)
