Wil, I am so terribly sorry about Ferris. She sounded like a wonderful dog, and I know it hurts pretty bad right now. I've lost pets before, and it feels like a hollow place filled with the worst feeling you could ever imagine. But it does get better. You always miss them, but it DOES get better. As for Riley, that story of her bringing you her toys moved me to tears. What a wonderful girl! What helped me when my cat died, was for me to sit with her favorite toys outside under a tree, and imagine her coming up to me and speaking to me just like a person. I told her I was sorry, because it was my fault that she ended up dying, and I imagined what she would say to me. I imagined her forgiving me, and cheering me up, and us having a funny conversation about the other side, and what life she was on out of the 9, what kitty heaven was like, and it was very comforting. I still feel her around sometimes. Good luck to you and your family and I echo the suggestion of getting a dog from a rescue organization. A new pet never replaces a pet who has passed on, but it DOES force you to focus your energy on something positive, and it is very healing. Hugs and best wishes. ---Ashley
