Oh gosh to put into words what I felt and still feel for these two little dogs I will never be able to explain. They didn't have a piece of my heart, they had ALL of it. I have honestly never felt pain SO bad as I did when they were both died. They died with in months of each other. I loved them with my whole heart. More than my children and my husband? No obviously but in a competely different way. Mans best friend... for sure. I doubt that any animal could get into my heart like they did.
