Oh, I LOVE it! That first pic is brilliant! What a great idea!
As for Chico......I'm sorry you are still missing him. But I understand. I miss my Bella every day. I still shed a tear now and then when I think about her. It's been six months. I think that when you have a heart-dog you never stop missing them. Something that, for me, makes me feel better when I find myself missing her so very much is that my missing her, still, means she was VERY LOVED and adored. And then that makes me smile to think what a wonderful life she must have had knowing she was loved so. I'm sure Chico was just as much loved.
Hugs to you.
