I just want to say thank you to all my friends both IRL and online for the support. Yesterday was so hard. At one point, dh started crying again which made me cry again. Logan asked me why I was crying (he doesn't understand she isn't coming back no matter how I try to explain it) and then said "Please don't cry momma." and gave me a hug. Awww. He's such a sweet boy.
We ended up taking the baby gate down that was keeping the dogs in the kitchen area and let Trouble roam. I think she's so used to staying in there though that she's a bit weird about coming out. It's like she thinks she'll be in trouble. She'll come when we call her but then return after a few minutes. I'm sure she'll get used to it eventually. For my friends who come over, I'll put the gate back up when you/your kids are here.
