Guys, I know just how you feel. We lost our Lucy on January 19 and I still cry every day for her. Even though I know we did everything possible for her right to the day where we had to make it stop for her because she was drowning in her own lungs. I finally decided that I would feel better if I helped another animal who would not have a home other wise. We just adopted 2 littermate yellow lab girls (3 year olds) who had been abandoned. If anyone out there is thinking of getting a dog, I enthusiastically recommend www.AdoptALab.org I still cry every day for Lucy, but at least I feel like I was able to help someone.
