I am so sorry to hear of Mozart's passing. Know that you gave him a very good life and you both benefited from the relationship. We all know that's part of owning a dog and humanely euthanizing a dog is the responsible and right thing to do when the time comes. But the good times almost always outweigh the side times for most of us and we eventually get another dog and walk down that lovely path again.

My sympathies Kimberfan. I have been there, and will again. It is the only really bad part about being owned by a dog. the other parts of being owned by a dog are vastly better! After an appropriate time you need to find Mozart's successor. They cannot be replaced, only succeeded.
A bad day at the range is better then a good day on the job!
When you reach the promise land the first thing you will see? The bright morning sun rising above the hills and every dog you ever owned running to greet you.
If it were not for whisky we Scotch-Irish would rule the world. And that is a fact.
