I know how you feel. I lost my big boy "Loki" in March of 2002.
They are such wonderful animals and become such a big part of our lives.
My neighbor had a white boxer named Sugar. She was the sweetest thing. She went to the bridge before Loki.
I still have Lacey....my flashy brindle girl of 9 years. She's an absolute doll.
I love the name Scout. I bet he keeps Sugar on her toes.
