I'm really digging the whole social interaction features of the Giant Bomb community. It might even be worth my $50. For now, I'd love to have some followers, and always follow back those who follow me! I might even write a blog post worth reading, every once in a while!

My father never talks about actually being there while it happened, but I know he can't talk about it without getting choked up. When he finally brought her home, he had her wrapped in her favorite blanket that he eventually buried her in. He put her in her bed and let the younger dog see her. She walked up to her, very quietly and softly, and just sniffed everything around. Then, she crawled in the bed with her and laid down. Probably the most heart-breaking thing I've ever heard. But the important part was that she got to cope with the death as well. Your obvious first concern is with your son, but keep in mind the other members of your family, as well.
That's probably the only advice I can offer, because it's breaking my heart reading your story, so obviously I'm no expert in this. Everyone copes differently, but you're an amazing father for allowing your son to have the time that he's had her and for helping him through this process.
Good luck with everything, and know that you're not alone. My family has never been emotional, but the death of a loved pet, a loved family member, can bring even the strongest man to tears.
If I may pimp my own photography for a few seconds, I shoot with a Rebel XTi and Tamaron lenses. You can see some of them here -
