Very sorry for your loss. I found a scraggly little mutt on the road about three years ago and have had him ever since. He has turned out to be my best friend. He is there when i go to bed and wake up every morning. No matter what kind of day I have had he is there at the door to greet me everyday when I come home from work. I went through some really tough time a few years back and I believe nothing helped me more than that little dog. I live alone bur never felt alone. Well to make a long story short, I will definitely be shedding some tears one day when my little buddy is called up. Nothing wrong with that.
This is copper after a fresh hair cut.
