I'm SO sorry to read of Akbar's passing. Very. I lost my own dog of 14 years just a few days ago - had to have him put to sleep - so I can relate to the pain you're going through. Akbar sounds like a great fellow. My sincere condolences to you and your family.



My sympathies -- There are few "people" we spend as much time with as our dogs, and so their losses are felt every day.

I'm so sorry about Akbar. But I'm glad your mom grew to love him so much, and that everyone felt him part of the family. And I'm glad you have your own dog to take condolence from. I've read stories about how dogs always go to the one in the room who's most bereft. Our Toby lay down at Sherry's G'ma's feet every time we'd visit her these last few weeks as her husband lay mortally sick in the hospital. They always seem to know who needs comforting.


So sorry to hear of your loss.
