Looking at her picture again. What a sweet girl, Tessa.

Trying some Interfit continual lighting with their ringlight, a few Yongnuo speedlights and triggers, Westcott orb, and a hodgepodge of other modifiers...and still a variety of DIY photography "helpers" and gadgets all conspiring together to confuse and trick me.

Georgepat...

Wonderful dog! I just love the Bernese Mountain Dogs.

I can relate to losing a well loved dog and a loved and loving spouse.

The late young wife of a pro football player, Chris Spielman, left a video for her family. In the video she says not ever to use her death as an excuse for failure but to use it as a motivation to excel. That is good advice for kids from which we could all benefit.

I have found that I could never "replace" either my previous dog or my late wife with a duplicate but, that my life has become full again with other dogs and a wonderful spouse...

Sorry for the "philosophy"... Good luck in all your endeavors!

Lovely Berner,
I lost mine to Cancer 2 years ago, also 7.5 years old
Far too young in my humble opinion and by far the best dog I have ever had, sadly missed by all

Your right, Richard. In the past I have tried to replace a lost pet...and while I loved the new one, it was never the same even if it was the same breed. My wife did this when we lost Tessa. We bought another BMD and named her Isabella. Oh, what a mess. This breed needs constant attention and hands on training. They want so hard to please you, but they are so big and rambunctious, they remind me of a bull in a china shop. Isabella was a pup when we got her, and shortly after that my wife became ill. Her training was off and on depending on how my wife felt.
I worked for myself as a welding contractor, and was gone frequently, so my part in the training was almost nill.
She was a good dog, and I kept her for 5 years more before I made the heart wrenching decision to re home her through a BMD Rescue group. I simply was gone too often, and she and my little dog, Fritzie, had to run by themselves.
As it turned out, the original breeder took her in and decided kept her.
Boy, I miss her clumsy self, and Fritzie misses her too.
Boy, sure takes me a long time to agree with you, doesn't it?

Pilot, They are wonderful dogs!
I have heard that 8 years is a very old Berner. I wish I could have cloned her, she was that special.
I'm sorry you had to lose yours. It really tears a hole in the heart.
