So, so sorry for your pain; and as most of us know, you will have some difficult days ahead. The pain is just so raw in the beginning, it seems like you will never get through it. I and many others have been there, and understand completely. But what you are feeling is very normal (though heartbreaking!), and you must go through it to heal. I'm still missing my Buddy after 13 months. It has gotten easier in some ways, but the longing for him comes in waves, and the hurt is still there. To help keep things in perspective, I have to remind myself that Buddy is no longer in pain, and someday I will join him. Yesterday, my neighbor lost her heart dog, a little apricot colored poodle named Blaze (15 yrs). She is heartbroken, and so sad. In time I think she may try to adopt an older dog from the shelter (Blaze was a 9yr old shelter dog when she got him). So all I can do is try to console her, and tell her I'm sure my Buddy was waiting at the Bridge when little Blaze arrived. I don't believe their passing is the end..rather the beginning of eternity, and we will join them too someday. Wishing you hugs and comfort.
