Thanks to all for the well wishes, she was very special to us.
This is our first weekend back without her, there is a huge void not having her around. Just seeing her tennis ball on the porch was emotional for us.
Our other dog Gus misses her, you can get the sense that he is looking around for her, they have been together for 8 1/2 years, I think it is confusing to him.
The rainbow bridge poem is very similiar to the book "Dog Heaven", we just purchased the book for our 6 year old, it has great illustrations and it helped us explain to him that Cooper is in a happy place.
One more picture to share, one of our favorites.
