Two days ago 11/8/2004 I just found out that my would have been 4year old male rottweilder was hit by a car I went to see his body yesterday at the animal hospital and could not believe it was him he was so swollen It was hard for me to keep it together my friend took me because my husband was out n ohio with a personal emergency himself with family. My husband spoke to them and asked them if they could wait till friday till he arrived home to tell them waht he was going to do and they agreed. I feel so numb right now want to know how to be able to grieve and move on but every time I look at a part of the our home I see him. We a re also blaming ourselves for not checking and securing the gate how do move on with that guilty feeling I have two children 17 and 14 that are heart broken and my husband is devasted. I feel like I lost a child. I cant stop crying. I dont really have the money at this time to cremate him. IS there any organization that help dog owners with this? let me know.What is worse today is my 39th birthday bmorales grieving the loss of simba my child my best friend firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is something you can never understand unless you have gone through it yourself. The pain is sometimes worse than when a person dies, because that dog was always there for you, when people are not. Hang in there, and keep your faith in God, He will help you through this. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what you mean about everything in the house reminding you of him. When Penny died, I experienced that also. The empty dog bowl and crate and toys all caused so much pain. It just takes time, time, time to feel better. When I was ready for another dog, it helped me to fill the void left by Penny. I did not forget her, and Missy did not replace her. In fact, it took me a month or so to really get close to Missy because she simply was not Penny. But soon enough I did learn to love her for her own unique personality.
Thank you for those words of encouragement. I do believe in God and will try to mediate on your words to help me through this. Thank You and God Bless you Have you lost a dod how long has it been and what did you do to help you with the grieving process. bmorales email@example.com
Well we lost Brandi, our shih-tzu mix, 6 years ago on December 18th. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through. It does get easier with time, but you will never forget him. There is nothing you can do to speed up the grieving process, it is different for everyone. There are ups and downs. Believe it or not, getting another dog DOES help. We got Lacey a year and a half after Brandi died and then we got Champ one year after that. I love those two with all my heart. They will never take her place and I still think of her often, but they have added so much joy to my life. Things will get better eventually.
I lost 2 dogs ,one due to cancer,we had to pts . It was so hard . I thought I was going to loose it.I had her body cremated and she's home with us.What was really hard is that Noey was only a baby,she was 14 months old with this horrible illness. It broke my heart to see her get so sick. When I was ready we got Sadie ,about 2 months later.Sadie died from neglect of a vetinary hospital,she wasn't kenneled correctly ,jumped through a window. 3 weeks later she was hit and killed on I-84. She was cremated ,but when they wanted to me to go and indentify her body,I couldn't. My nephews fiancee did for me since she was Sadies groomer.We got another puppy 4 months later,Piper who's Sadies niece.Getting another puppy when you are ready wont replace your dog,but help to fill that empty void,and you'll keep all the precious memories of your dog.
