That was tough. Real tough. Thank you so much for your comments, thoughts and words of wisdom. I would love to reply to each one of you but at the moment I'm not able. I have read every comment and will follow up with every book suggestion. Thank you for those comments that made me think deeply and realise how differently children grieve. This information became so important to me over the last couple of days. We are now as a family celebrating the life of our beloved dog and finding ways to keep his memory alive.
To lighten things up a little I have attached some photos of Otis playing with his food. He eats mostly family food now but at dinner I still give him some mushed food. Remember it's hot here and no shirt at the table isn't the norm but it is totally acceptable.
The next few posts are from last week that I didn't get around to posting. I also have a couple of posts to write to cover some of the questions asked previously about Caspar. I hope to get to this soon.
Once again thank you for your continued support and comforting words.
