I am so sorry for your loss TK9mm, Paige looks like she was a wonderful companion. I can't begin to tell you how many times I have been in your place, I have never lived 1 second of my almost 79 years in a house without a dog. I will make one suggestion, take it for what it's worth, get a puppy, they have a way of healing broken hearts.
This is Ruger, My two year old Jack Russel mix. He was a rescue dog that was dumped off a bridge in Oklahoma. Parvo infected, covered in fleas. A Kansas City rescue group called Pawisitive Tails drove down and rescues his litter, nursed them back to health and now he's a proud Kansan! He's probably the smartest dog I've ever owned!
