I am so sorry for your enormous loss

You did all that you could for your fabulous boy so be good to yourself and feel proud of the beautiful life that you gave Red.

There is a lot of emotional suffering that goes along with our loved ones that pass over suddenly. There is no time to prepare. But the truth is you can never be prepared for this. There is always the feeling of hopelessness. Feel comforted by the fact that the both of you did not suffer for months and months and lived life to the fullest right to the end.

You did not cause this. It was obviously his time to go and be rewarded in heaven for all of the hard work that he has done on earth. It sounds like he taught you a lot a did his job very well. You will always miss him because he took a part of you with him. You are eternally entwined. You will see him again and it will be a powerful reunion. Trust that he is by your side supporting you like he always has even though you cannot physically see him right now.

IMHO it is not too soon to form another bond with another. Goldens are often sent to us. They are awesome healers. Go for it! Red wants you to be happy and proud of him.

Be kind to yourself during the awful shock period of grief.
Best wishes and good luck.

I am so so sorry for your loss. We have lost goldens to hemangiosarcoma and it is so fast. You loved him and did the best for him and he knew it. What our goldens teach us is that the love of a golden is something we need in our lives and hearts. It would be a tribute to him when/if you get another golden to love. Take care.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Red. We lost our Fozzie four months ago, also to hemangiosarcoma. It basically comes out of nowhere, and there's nothing you can do--so awful! Sending postive thoughts your way..

I'm so very sorry for your loss of your sweet boy Red. We lost our Maddie a few years ago very suddenly and our Choc Lab Echo mourned her along with us. Hugs to you and your Cody.

I am SO VERY SORRY about Red! What a beautiful boy.
Ken and I lost two of our dogs to hemangiosarcoma in 2010.
It comes on so fast!

So very sorry to hear about Red. Far too many Goldens are taken by Hemangio, my Maddie included. Often as with your Red this is no real warning they have it so please don't feel you didn't do enough. My condolences.

I am so sorry about Red. He was a beautiful boy, who was obviously loved and cherished. So, so often these terrible diseases sneak up on us, and there is not much we can do. Only you can decide when the right time will be to bring another dog into your family. Again, so sorry for your loss, we all know too well the pain you are feeling. HUGS

I am so sorry for the loss of your Red. He was a beautiful boy. If you feel the time is right, I encourage to get another Golden.
