I am so very sorry about the loss of your precious dog, Char. I've had to have several of my pets put to sleep, and it is very painful, no matter how fast they move on to another place.
There are books out there that say our pets go to Heaven. I believe we will see these dear little creatures again, too. I've gotten several lovely ADC's from my babies -- I'm a believer that they live on, just like our human family members do! :)
I'm very happy for you that you got the specific orange ladybug ADC that you asked for! And to get that ADC right when you were talking to your mom was no accident in my opinion! :)
Love continues on, and your Char baby will no doubt send you other sweet ADC's -- treasure them!
