It's been a little less than a year since we lost Gracie. Pearl was gone when Grace left us, so for several months, it was just Pogo and Jane, and they didn't really seem to need a leader. Gracie was the dog who kept everyone in line and agreeable. Pearl suffers a little from an affliction I like to call "I'm special." So, we have some grumblings now and then. I thought Jane would emerge as more of a leader than she has. Pogo has always been the peacemaker.
I miss that bossy little dog.
