Looking at pictures of my Alex and the dogs that we’ve taken care of throughout the years filled me with nostalgia and gratitude. Alex lived 13 years and she was the most amazing dog ever, and although when we lost her we were devastated, I wouldn’t trade the time we had with her for anything in this world.
When I look at the pictures of Alex, Maggie and so many other dogs, yes I feel a little sad because they are no longer with us, but more than anything I feel joy. Some pictures also make me laugh because they bring back funny memories. And with that being said, I would ask you, who said nostalgia is a bad thing?

Nostalgia is not a bad thing, it’s just you can’t avoid it. Time will heal Marcela – be strong!
Thanks Leif! I agree.
Very beautiful dogs. Those breeds get such a bad reputation but they are some of the best dogs I have worked with.
Thanks. Yes, I totally agree with you.
Time heals those wounds of loss; I’m waiting for the day I don’t see images of Sam and don’t weep.
Yes, time does heal those wounds and although I have cried a lot for the doggies that are no longer with us, I’ll be honest when I tell you that they made me happy and filled my life in such a way that the pain was worth it.
