So jealous, John! We lost our last dog after only having had him a year to lymphoma, two years ago this month. It was painful… I am hoping that late winter or the the spring we can adopt another Boxer, or preferably two. :-)
Funny thing is that my walks follow where I would have taken our dog. I see the same dog walkers, and many of the same dogs. Alas, I’m not being morbid, but how I miss the love and play of a dog.
