I understand your pain all too well - I just lost my 8 month old Great Dane puppy to a sudden heart attack and my world is reeling. He was my heart puppy to help me heal from losing my 9 year old Newfie last June. So two pups within a year and I'm just lost. I have a cat, my heart kitty, who wasn't supposed to live past 3 weeks old and he's still with me at 3 years old. He didn't leave my side when my Newfie Dudley died and he has not left my side as of yet (it's been 1 week today). He knows I am so sad and he is there whenever I reach out, day or night. He's not here, right this second, because he's eating, I hope. 😉 Either that or he is feeling I am doing ok for now. Time will heal some of the heartbreak, I know. It's tough to get through the first month or so of this big grief. Once you're ready to open your heart again, please let someone else it. Yes, it hurts but I wouldn't trade a DAY of our time together to avoid this grief. Duncan was such a GOOD BOY. Smart, beautiful, gentle, funny... all rolled into one large "puppy". In 6 months, he went from 20 pounds to 130 pounds and still had lots of growing to do. We had plans to do Therapy Work and he was well on his way (already aced Obedience 1 and we were to start Canine Good Citizen this Saturday). Take care Shawn and we are here for you, if you need anything.
* Duncan the Dane - taken WAY too soon (7/27/17 - 3/28/18) * Missing Dudley the Newf (3/13/08 - 6/12/17)
