Emily, I often like to think that the new ones were sent by the old ones to help heal our hearts. In no way does loving a new one diminish the love for the one that went before. If anything, it is a tribute to the love you once shared.
Both of your dogs have great names. Tex goes with Harley. That is not an accident.
I'm so glad you shared Tex with us. Harley is very lucky to follow in his footsteps.
As my dear friend Tracy has said, dogs live shorter lives than us humans so that we have the opportunity to love many of them. I am paraphrasing, but "Deerie Me" knows of what she speaks.
I am sure that you gave Tex the very best life, as you are now giving Harley. Thank you again for sharing him with us.
