11. Thank you for the link!

Worked just fine for me. My grandson searched until he found the reason for his death. Was so glad it wasn't Covid, for whatever that's worth.

My sympathies on the loss of your best friend. I lost mine 2 years ago this Christmas. He died on Christmas Day that year, at 110 pounds, so I know the heartache and the problems with such a large dog. Porter showed up as a stray one day and took me six months of weekends to get him to finally trust me. I was living with Mom thru the week, taking care of her after she broke a hip. When Porter finally saw I meant him no harm, he gave me every ounce of love he had. I'm 4'10" and he stood waist high on me. I managed to get him into the house just before the first snow that year. After I took him to the vet, he had several rounds of meds for different conditions and weighed 45 pounds. I don't think he'd have lasted much longer if he hadn't found me.

We also had a border collie at the time. We lost him at Thanksgiving that same year. Einstein was my hubby's best friend. Earned his name by warning us the house was on fire the very first night he spent inside with us. Losing those two dogs broke our hearts so bad it was only this year we adopted another dog from the pound. He's a huge pony of a puppy, who's just now letting his personality come thru. We also live with 10 cats I've rescued, 2 of whom are over 20 years old.

I know we've got at least one other DU'er who's over in Kansas, who knows... maybe we can get a gathering of Kansas/MO people together to meet each other! I know the mean age of DU'er falls right along my age... old lady (gryn)... it might be fun to meet and hear everyone's experiences!

{{Hugs}} and hopes for a gentle mourning for you... thank you so much for responding!
