So sorry for your loss BlueRaider
Breaks my heart that you have lost your Friend. Feel your pain having lost our first dog three years ago after 15 wonderful, love filled years.
Regardless of your spiritual belief....know this...you will see your "Pretty Girl" again. One day, maybe not tomorrow, or next week, or next year... you will see Pretty Girl staring at you from behind the eager eyes of another willing and deserving companion. Take comfort that your Pretty Girl will see to that from beyond.
Take care, and keep her in your heart. Their love lives on.
