It really hurts not having her right by your side...I know it must!! She was a beautiful girl, Dianna...it's so sad to say goodbye. I have my Coco who is on her last little legs, struggling around...she's absolutely my best friend and photo shoot partner...follows me all over the farm...even when she can barely keep up anymore. It's so sad...they're such wonderful friends. My heart is with you.
