Tracey it’s good to hear from you. Thanks for the update.
Aww Tai! So cute seeing her on that royal lounge of hers. What a lucky girl.
I think she is happy knowing that other dogs are getting happy, full bellies thanks to her discriminating taste in treats. That’s a sweet way to continue spreading her love to other doggies.
It’s OK not to feel ready for another dog. If and when you are, Tai will tell you. I have total confidence that your Tripawd Queen is going to send the perfect royal subject to you some day. Not now, but some day I’ll bet.

Oh gosh, that picture…soooo cute!!! Yes indeedy, that is Tai’s “royal lounge” indeed!! The audacity of you to think you should sit on it!!
Yeah, that break in routine, the void, it all stays with you for a long time. The habits that you did day in and day out, and then they halt with a suddenness that stops your world.
And I love how you are honoring Tai by passing out treats😎
As far as bringing another dog into your life who needs to know what ot feels like to be .loved, just be open to the poss. That’s all. Just be open. You don’t have to think about it. Just see what unfolds, or what doen’t!

Well, I thought that was a throne, but I have to agree, it’s more a lounge.
I’m so very sorry for your loss and the pain you are feeling, and we share it having lost both Jake and Casey in the last 7 months. We miss them both, but it’s very different since we still have two dogs. We miss them around the house, but also on our walks and adventures. We went out to Great Meadow, a fenced steeplechase course where the dogs can RUN, and I thought of Casey and Jet stalking that swan, or Jake being stuck on his island (a 2 square foot rock) four feet from shore until I finally had to wade into the muck to rescue him and now, I can say these memories bring smiles along with the sense of loss.
Our blessings are still the other dogs. Nothing fills the hole in your heart like letting a new dog share his with you, but I understand that takes some time. You’ll know when that time comes.
