As you know, Cindy died on the weekend. I am now in Stage Two of doggie-grief. The first stage is denial of a need for a dog, since nothing could replace the last dog. This stage is just depression.
The women want a cute mutt puppy, but these are getting impossible to get in Toronto, since that whole neuter campaign must be working. I would be happy with a young mutt that won't go over 40 pounds, since I have a medium dog door. :)
If you have a handle on puppies please let me know. I estimate that the anti-depressant effect of a dog is equal to 100 mg/day of Trazodone, and I'm suffering.
