I had two wolfies: Cillian and Belle. Lost them both in 1996 within a few months of each other. It was as though Belle just couldn't go on without him and for a while I felt the same way. I have never felt so close to a dog as I did my beloved Cillian! Oh I loved Belle dearly, she was my sweet gentle lady and I loved her to bits, but Cillian was my shadow and my heart. He even waited by the bathroom door for me and sat beside me on the couch, literally. His big backside plonked down, feet on the floor, his head and shoulders higher than mine. What a sight! People loved to see him do that.
I rarely left the house without them and even drove across country with them half dozen times. The day Cillian passed my 11 year old daughter was so moved she wrote a poem about his passing and a year later won a young poets contest for it (published!).
Just wanted to touch base with you because I understand your love for these 'Gentle Giants'
