I am so sorry. Try to change your daily routine. If you change things up you'll be less like to associate doing certain things with things you did with your dog. For instance, if you used to come home and walk your dog after work, join a gym and go there after work. I know it is tough right now, but it will get better and one day you will think of something about your pup that will bring a smile instead of tears. It just takes time. Then when you are ready, please go rescue another. Who knows, they might "rescue" you as well.
My 6 year old daughter lost her pitbull last year and he was 3. I'm so sorry about your loss. It's going to take time and you may never fully get over it. My dad lost one about 15 years ago and he still cries over her. Just remember all the times ya'll had and smile :-) everyone is different about how they react, but go get you another pitbull puppy right away.
I've lost several dogs and the pain doesn't change. Of course your devastated!! Embrace your grief, it is a testament to the wonderful friend you lost. But time will ease the pain, I promise! Maybe sometime down the road you WILL be ready for a new friend! Condolences.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbows Bridge.
When a dog dies that has been close to someone here, he goes to Rainbows Bridge. There are meadows and hills for our babies so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and they are warm and happy.
The dogs who had been ill and old are restored to youth & vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole again, as we know them in our dreams. They are happy and content, except for one thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run, flying over the green grass, running faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your baby meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your dog, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.
Then you rise, and together you cross the Rainbows Bridge.
