Welcome to the forums my friend. Sorry to hear about your dog, I know how difficult it is to deal with since I’ve lost two of my own. You seem like an interesting member, hopefully you decide to stick around these parts.
actually, i adore dogs. that's why i'd be curious to see it in your avatar.
but i checked out your profile, and i could see it was Shepherd.[though the pictures is too small].
it's sad you don't have her anymore.
