Chickadee..I am so sorry for your loss....Now you have the memories of her to put a smile on your-face every now and then. Knowing the pain has stopped gave me so much comfort and I hope it does for you too. Hugs to you! :cry: Annie

A big thank you to you all who posted. :) I am holding on to hope that the 2 males liked my new trendsetter and will come back. I've learned so much from this forum over the years and appreciate all the feed back. So now I guess I will sit back and wait. Ugh! Annie
