Thank you so much for your kind words. Dottie was true teacher to us all. She graced our lives for 7 years and I enjoyed every minute. No matter how long or short their lives, they leave us with many gifts. It is wonderful that you have dogs 16 years old and 14 years old! They want to hang out with you as long as they can! Every day notice something wonderful about them and tell them. I did that with Dottie and she would beam with joy. What a blessing they are to us.
