Welcome luvmybeagles: Your furfamily sounds lovely. Sorry to hear of your lose in November. Many of us have had to send our furbabies to Rainbow Bridge. It never gets easier, but we take comfort that they are no longer suffering or in pain.
Pictures please, (but I am having issues posting pics too).
As for the cat who thinks she is a dog, she knows the difference, she is just playing with everyone's head (although my mini-doxie KNOWS he is really a golden retriever, like his big brother).
Looking forward to hearing more about your family
Love me, love my dogs
