I just finished your book and enjoyed it so much. I lost a lab two years ago at the age of 11. My gardener left the gate open, he ran out and was hit by a car. I blamed myself for not checking the gate, it was horrible. We loved our beloved Seine so much and my husband and I were so distraught. We also at the time had a golden retriever who chose not to run out and thank God she is alive and well at the age of 8 today. I don’t want to even think of lossing her. I will really need professional help.
I felt your pain and understood how you felt.
Dogs are such special members of the family better than some blood relatives.
