    Ditto to what Lou said. Our little Bebe is a Jack Russel Terrier and is like one of the kids, I dont even want to imagine what life would be like with out her spark. I still go out under an old tree by the back of the house and talk to our old Beagle who passed last year, I laid her to rest in a nice shaddy spot, I miss her lots, she was a really good dog too.
