Thank you to all of you who commented, e-mailed, and called to offer us your love and support. We are doing well, though we talk daily about how much we miss Sammie. Losing her left a really big hole in our hearts, but we are grateful for the year we had with her.
Rosie is pretty lost without her sister. Even though we have shown her lots of attention, extra walks, and a lot more indoor time with us, she still seems sad and depressed. With Sammie, she would run and play, and they would wrestle all day. When they were sleepy, they would curl up together and snuggle.
Now, even when she is indoors with us, she whimpers and whines and is pretty mopey. She doesn't run and play much, and is eating less. Even Brandon, who doesn't feel the same attachment to these dogs as the rest of us, can sense her sadness and loneliness.
So, my question to you, dear readers, is do you have any ideas about how we can help ease this transition for Rosie? Anything that we should be doing? or is it just something that will take time?
