I used to come to this site everyday and have been off for awhile but wanted to let you know Summer passed away few weeks ago.She had a blockage and passed away during surgery.My grief is horrible...I have not felt pain like this in so long.On top of that a group of friends thought they would cheer me up by bringing me Eliza a pit puppy.Summr was a rottie..completely different dogs!!! grrr.but love her I will because shes my responsibility...thanks for letting me vent.
I am sorry for you loss. I can't say the pain will go away, but it will get easier. You are right another puppy could never replace your Summer, but I know you will love the new puppy for herself. Your friends were trying to help in the only way they knew how. Just remember the great time you had with Summer and make new memories with Eliza.
Sometimes, we just have to put on our "Big Girl Panties" and deal with it!"
