Give the other two lots of hugs tonight.
Sometimes it's harder when you have more than one, as the survivors know all too well what has happened, even if they didn't witness it. My male is terribly distraught.. maybe because he knows I am upset.. but more likely because he knew something was not right days ago. He has been by her side for several days, only straying to do his business.
The puppy is still too young to get it, I think, but she is subdued a tad as well.
Thanks for the thoughts folks. Anyone that has met me knows these Beagles are as important to me as folks kids are. They are my family.
This is the umpteenth time I have sent a pet over the bridge. It never gets easier, in fact, I think it gets harder with each one. But the years prior to this one terrible day are well worth the price.
