Dear Mark,
In January I lost my best friend ever -Ellie. And my family lost their friend too. She (see picture attached) was a Norwegian elk hound and lived 13 faithful years. Eight weeks ago, rather than trying to replace Ellie through a breeder, we adopted a six month old Australian Sheppard/ blue heeler mix. She (Sadie) is an exceptionally smart dog and I believe she instinctively knows she cannot fill the hole in my heart left by Ellie. My question to you is: How long did it take you to get through the mourning?
It feels like forever…
On a lighter note- I read \”Liberty and Tyranny\” and believe this book will live forever. You are a great patriot!
