that you now miss. Like getting out of the shower and not having to step over his body 'cause he insisted on being in the same room as you regardless of where that was, or waking up in the morning and sitting up in bed and and not seeing the top of his head and eyes looking at you 'cause he now knows you're awake, or sitting on the couch at night watching tv with him laying in front of you and every time you shift position he sits straight up as if to say " ok mom is it time are we going for our walk now?" No wiki not yet lay down. "OK". Such a good boy.
Feel for you ! I know that feeling and will experience it again before I die !
It never gets any easier.
Colin said it perfectly.
I wish there were words to help, but know right now there are none.
I know! Sniff! I teared up reading your posts.... When we lost our 12 yr old Maggiemay in May 2011, I hurt so bad I felt like I couldn't breathe. I remember just praying the pain would stop. I began to think maybe a puppy would help, but I feared I couldn't love another dog like I loved Maggie. I found a breeder and chose Sophie. It seemed like such a long wait for her 8 weeks birthday so we could bring her home. Puppies are lots of work, and it did help having her in the house to keep me busy. It was not long till Sophie had her paw planted firmly on my heart. I still miss my Maggie, and shed a tear from time to time, but Sophie saved me. No kidding. Have you given any thought to getting a puppy? We can't replace the ones we lose, but it sure helps with the lonliness.

It's so hard not to keep looking for them, hugs to you.
It sure feels like a hole in your heart
I think for me, the worst part would be the quiet.
My girls are so close together in age....Java is 4 1/2 and Moka just turned 4. I fear losing them close together and having an empty, quiet house.
I understand - the silence I find deafening
