Maria…welcome on board. I am so so sorry to hear of your loss, I know how empty and sad it is to loose a "furchild" after such a long life together.
I hope you will find your new babies, whether puppies or adults soon.
I have heard nothing but lovely things about Brenda and her pack..maybe a visit would be nice..
I also know BRAT is inundated right now by dogs, especially in TX..but regardless of where you are, if you find another dog through BRAT that matches you and yours better..they will more than likely try to accommodate you.
Good Luck and keep us posted..
