Just a quick one. Our other dog Sparky passed away yesterday from a ruptured tumour. The vet said she would have had it for months but after it burst she passed away within hours.
Less than 2 weeks since we lost her best friend Holly. Extraordinary to think she couldn't be away from her best friend, almost as if they were only alive while they had one another. Such a sad day here yesterday. For the first time in my entire life I don't have a pet of any kind. Feels very empty. We are going to wait though until we get something again. Our dogs were our world for such a long time (almost 12 years) I feel we need time to heal.
Nessie I would wait. I think the break you have planned sounds wonderful. You have had such a tough year I'd give yourself some time to be with DH and Ash and just enjoy life. I did a rushed cycle pre Christmas one year and it failed and I felt so miserable at Christmas time which wasn't great. in the end you'll know what the right decision is.
Take care everyone.
