Hey pudpud, for some reason I came to this one particular post from you. It's like it was me writing. We lost our beautiful Benji on 23rd January and the last week has been particularly tough. Ive never turned to a forum for difficulties before. I guess we can feel for each other as I do for you.
I don't know if my grief and unused loved is because my husband has children and I don't. I know that leaving jobs and making changes is so hard. I know that our other furbaby is a blessing. I share all this with you. Most of all, I shared the loss of a much loved and adored dog...the best, nicest, most loving and loyal dog you could ever ask for.
Hi Benji's Mummy, thank you for much for your message. My condolences about Benji, I am sorry because I know how much it hurts and you are absolutely right, we can definitely feel for each other.
It's never easy to lose a loved one, having other big things going on makes it harder. I don't have (human) children either. I consider PudPud my son, even though he's not here. I love him like I would love any child. So I think your hunch is correct.
Maybe somewhere down the road you will have another furbaby to love. I volunteer at my local humane society and there are lots who would love a nice warm home and a great mummy.
Take care of yourself.
