If you weren't hurting or feeling sad since your dog died, there'd be something terribly wrong with you....like you didn't have a heart or something. We know that's not true. Losing a dog is much like losing an important part of your family. I could lie to you and say, "Oh, you'll get over it." But you know what, I think you'll always have that spot of love in your heart for your pal. I know I do for mine that I've lost. No doubt about it, you're going to feel sadness. It's not wrong to shed a tear when you lose a pet that's been a friend. One thing about dogs, they're loyal; and even if you're mad or act ugly toward them, they always come back to show you love. You just can't beat that. It's a trait humans would be better off having. It's going to take a little time for the worst of the hurt to be over.....but it will get better. It has for me. Just remember.....you'll always carry a little part of that special pal with you for the rest of your life. Take care of yourself.
I couldn't get over when my turtle died but i thought about how he is in a happier place he is in no more pain and stuff and how i will c him again in the future..think about the positive things... that best for her/him..
"he is in a better place" just does not make sense because he was in a loving home and got a lot of attention. Place the dog things out of sight for awhile and each day will get better. I extend my sympathy to you and think good thoughts about the furry one.
It will take time. You are entitled to your grief. Allow yourself to feel it. If you are not familiar with the story of the Rainbow Bridge, go to this site: www.petloss.com/rainbowbridge.htm --it is a story in which I, as many people do, take great comfort. And the Pet Loss website has other things to offer, too.
I am so sorry for your loss. Maybe in the future, when you are ready, you could honor his or her memory and go to the shelter and save a life. Sometimes the best honor you can bestow, is to love again and help someone that really needs you, like a shelter dog.
Sorry for your loss. What kind of dog did you have? If I were you, I would get a new dog. Paint some pixtutes or listen to music. Do the things that you love. If you go on www.pbskidsgo.org click on it's my life and they have a topic about death. Try that website.
Oh my gosh!!! I feel your pain. To be honest there is no way you can get over it. You will always miss her. I still miss my hamster who died last year March 10, 2011. But I got a new hamster 2 days later. Tat didn't work out so 2 weeks later we got a new hamster. And today the new hamster has almost been with us a year (March 26,2012 will be 1 year). She is happy and healthy. But do try do get one tha looks like the one that died. I'm very sorry for your loss.
I lost my lil best friend almost one week ago. I went through denial, blaming myself, and crying endlessly. He had been ran over by my neighbor and I had to see the whole thing. I know what you are going through. This is my first time owning a pet and I had him nearly two years. I never knew that I could love an animal that much. But, I did. My other dog and cat miss him too. My family misses him very much as well. Remember that you are not alone in this. There are people out there that will support you. I know I will. Do try to remember all the good times. It is very important that you do. Your pet will always be with you.
