Rachel, words are so inadequate at times like this.

I'm so, so sorry for yours and Brian's loss. I loved to read the bits of Riso you'd share with us.

Hugs to you both.

Oh, I'm so sorry, Rachel. I still have a huge honkin' empty spot in my heart for Vincent. Not that I'm ready to take on another dog, mind you..... (though I may have a foster grandpup coming to live with me soon....)

As one who has had to say goodbye to 2 of my four legged children this year, I gut-wrenchingly say I am sorry. Lots of hugs coming your way. As you said, he was ready... and you were able to give him that last gift of Peace.

Hang in.
