11. mine was a border collie mix and looked so much like your mike

they could have been twins.
mine was a girl, also a rescue and an absolute delight
everyone who met her loved her
and losing her was devastating (six weeks after i lost my mom)

a friend "surprised" me with another rescue dog six weeks after that. she was ten years old and i had her for three brief years. it's been a year now since i have been dogless -- it's been the longest time in my life since i was fifteen and acquired my first canine friend.

it's been a major adjustment (i'm still not over the loss of the last one--so i'm not in any emotional place to find another companion). her "nest" (crate) is still where it always was, and when i put the dishes away i find myself being careful not to step on an invisible water bowl from a place where it was over four years ago when we had our border collie.

much sympathy to both you and your parents. i'm glad mike was a part of your lives and family. i'm sure it was wonderful.
