Its been 2 months now but some days it feels like it just happened. Its the small things like taking Liam to the store and petting him while I put my shoes and socks on that are difficult. I hope Liam is running free and having a goo time.

I am so sorry, I also just lost my guy last week and it is hard. Liam is a beautiful boy and 9 is just too young. I hope you are able to find peace in the coming days. Oh sorry for the duplicate post

I hope you will go on, you'll find the strength.
I lost Bentley 6 months ago (July 10) ... this is the lowest of my life.

Bentley was a beautiful boy. Thank you for your kind words. We are actually planning on getting a new puppy. Some times though, I feel guilty that that I will hasten the fading memories of Liam. Most days are good but it really hits hard when I see his picture and read about all of the others here that have lost their puppies.

Thankyou, sorry for your loss. Last week yikes I had a really bad time during the first two weeks. I guess they say time heals, but not quick enough. You are right 9 is to young, but he had an enlarged heart diagnosed in late July and he was able to give us 4 more months of pure joy.

Hang on to those sweet, tender moments..they will comfort you. Time does heal, and you will always have your memories, and cute funny stories you will recall about Liam as time goes by. Grieving is a process we must go through. As you welcome a new puppy into your heart, you will be making new memories, but also appreciating your life with Liam.

I know exactly what you're saying. It will soon be two years that I lost my boy at the age of 15.5. The first week, the first month, then eventually the first year were so very hard. It still seems like it was only yesterday in many ways becaue the pain and emptiness is still very real and in others, it feels like it was a lifetime ago. We think of him everyday and will always miss him, he'll forever be in our hearts and we know he's always with us.

I don't think you should feel quilty, you can't replace one dog with another. Each dog is so very special and unique in their own ways. You may see some similarities in another dog that will make you think of Liam.

Within a few weeks of losing my boy, I adopted a young golden male from my County Humane Society. We weren't ready for this boy and I did feel quilty even going to look at him, but I have a Golden girl that is a former puppy mill momma that will always need to be with another dog. She was grieving and started to withdraw and regress. I knew for her sake I had to find another dog ASAP, but it also had to be one that was very gentle and well socialized. This boy was a perfect fit, he needed a home and we needed him. Bringing him into our lives helped me heal and he also helped my girl. He brought so much joy back into our lives.

I've had dogs all my life, as a child growing up and into my adult years. I've had at least two at a time, sometimes even 4. When we lost our bridge boy, our home seemed so out of balance.

When you are ready, I hope you will open your heart and home to another Golden.

It's been six months since we lost Fozzie, and I still tear up when I walk our familiar routes, or realize yet again there is no water bowl sitting on the kitchen floor. They become so much a part of our lives and it really is hard to adjust once they leave us...
