Waningcrow, I am so sorry for your loss and the pain hat you are in. I can tell you that everyone's journey through grief is different. The only way to navigate is right through it. Allow yourself the time to grieve, and there is no time limit on that. There will be days that your heart breaks all over again, and then days when you feel like you can function. Eventually time doe help heal the sharp pain, but the love and even loss will always be with you. That is the price we pay for loving our little companions. I am almost 1 1/2 years out from the loss of my best friend. I will always love and think of her. I did choose to adopt again and love having a companion. It was not an easy decision and rough in the beginning, but it's all good and I am happy that I can give another dog a wonderful home. Take care of yourself and be kind to yourself through your journey. Reach out at any time for help!
