Awwww....nice to see the picture! I lost my Jemma at 11 1/2 years of age also. They never do live long enough.
One thing I do want to mention...without hurting your feelings. Don't let your kids sit on your dog! I know it makes a cute picture, and some dogs don't seem to mind. After volunteering for rescue....we had a few really nice, stable dogs that came into rescue...because the owner's kids sat on the dog...and the dog snapped, or bit the kid. After that the owner did not trust their dogs...and they needed to be rehomed. Some dogs are in pain, or just having a bad day...and cannot take a kid sitting on it, or bugging. My mantra is "don't set them up to fail".
