I have been completely overwhelmed by it all of the kind messages I have received about Nechung. Quite literally hundreds of them. It goes to show how many people love dogs. The kind words that people have expressed have been very welcome and I thank all of you.
I have not yet got used to her not being here and the house definitely feels different. It could be my imagination, but Luque seems to miss her.
On Sunday evening, which is when the we more or less knew that we would have to take her to the vet for the final time, Luque had growled at her, something he has never done before.
When I returned from the vet without her he looked behind me and then had a long sniff of me. Since then he has been very quiet and he sleeps where she normally slept. When he comes to bed with me he has not been doing his usual dancing about.
Her granddaughter, Carly, I think is pregnant. It will be another 10 days before I know for sure. Judging from her behaviour I think she probably is. She will not leave me alone and always wants to be on my lap.
Mary Grace is also a granddaughter of Nechung but only five months of age.
