Great report and photos.
Sorry about the reason you had to make the trip, though. There was a thread in (I think) JM a while ago, titled something along the lines of 'what happens when you get to heaven?'. Amongst all the predictable stuff, someone posted 'you get all your old dogs back'.
Looking forward to that.
