Because she was there when I had a lot of personal issues going on. She sensed my troubles and comforted me. When I was up in the bed filled with depression and anxiety attacks , she laid her head on me and slept next to me because she knew what I was feeling. Now when I go through these terrible attacks she is not there. She was an expert at sensing my feelings and when I cried even more so. I love my new dog but it will take her awhile to know me better.
Like a lot of people who grieve they wished they could have said more before their life ended.
