    Sorry Mike. You were both lucky beyond words to have had each other. Nothing sucks worse, but it does get better.....just takes a long time.

    Mike,

    I saw this while at work yesterday. I'm not ashamed to admit that it brought a tear to my eye.

    Prayers for you and Diane. As others have said, remember all of the wonderful times you had together.

    Mike and Bride, Sorry for your loss of a true buddy. The whole retriever family grieves with you on the loss of a friend that you had such a great time with. This is a great group of people that are truly family when you need them. I will always have a special place in my heart for you both. Bill

    You guys are ALLL GREAT!!!!

    Thank You so much for the things you all have said.. It really has helped...

    I didnt think it would be as hard as it has been,,,, Its funny,, I dont remember much the HT's,, but I absolutely remember the days afield, and most of the birds she picked up.. It was fun hunting with her, even though she wasnt the most calm dog to sit still with!:P

    Thanks again all ,,,from both Diane and Myself..

    Mike and Diane, my deepest condolences to both of you!

    It is so hard. I know you've been through it before. But I know, as you do, that it just doesn't get any easier when it happens again.

    Sincerely sorry.

    Chris
