    Sorry to hear. I still grieve over the passing of my dog.

      Thanks Andrew. The thing about a pet is that it is in your care and living with you, which makes for a sharp grief even if, I hope with time, one that I shall come to terms with relatively soon. I haven’t had lots of pets so this is almost a first with me – the only other was a much shorter acquaintance many years ago.
