Jack, our lab, has had a rough time, too. He and Kipper were constant companions and it has taken him some time to understand that she is no longer around. He's not getting quite as much exercise as he was, playing chase with her every morning....but IS getting to spend a lot more time with me in the studio and in the car running errands. He carries his "baby" around with him all the time and is making the best of it. I will post photos of Jack next time.
Kipper was one of those four-legged's who knew me inside out. I have not had many...in fact only one other.... but it is as if a part of me is gone. I miss her so much, but life continues and memories of her antics make me smile, even as the tears well up in my eyes. I feel her spirit occasionally and that, too, makes me smile.
Cheers to those self-less beings who live to please and support and comfort. They expect nothing in return, but how can we resist? We love them dearly and they know it......xo
