We are each working through how much we miss her today.
Roo’s pajamas were on top of a pile of blankets, all freshly folded from the laundry. I wasn’t sure at first what Suki wanted when she started gesturing to the pile. When I put the items within reach, she chose Roo’s pajamas and laid down on them on her dog bed. Our first day without her and we all feel how much she is missed.

Ohhhhh, so sad and bittersweet. Thanks for sharing this. I'm sure the other pets miss her too.

Awwww this is heartbreaking. But also lovely at the same time

This is very touching! I believe that in the beginning, the smell substitutes the presence, and this helps the other dogs gradually to accept Roo's absence. Unlike humans who have the notion of "never again", our dogs do not think so. "Miss Roo isn't here now, but maybe, soon, she will come". It is comforting for them. But you need time, my friend, time for a routine without her, although she will be missed always.

Very sorry for your loss, @alysonsee (Fca)

sorry to hear about doggo. I cared for two very old, very sweet pups while working at home full time and I know how bittersweet it is to say goodbye but also to know there is no more pain.
