It's been about one day since I lost her. We buried her about 5 hours ago and I didn't cry, I felt numb. It wasn't until now that I'm lying awake in my bed that I cried. Usually I fall asleep to the sound of her breathing but I can't hear it because she's not there and she never will be again. She was my protector and this entire day I've avoided thinking about her but now I can't. I can't stop thinking about all the things I could have done better, that I couldn't have been there for her longer. She was my protector, she kept me safe and healthy and I couldn't do the same for her.

I’m so sorry for your loss.  It seems grief comes in waves; sometimes you cry and sometimes you feel numb and empty.  I, too, felt I should have done more.  Grief and guilt often come together when you’re struggling with the loss of your furry friend; when in your heart you know you would have done anything to save her.  I truly hope your heart will heal in time.
