My much loved dog is dying. She doesn’t have long left.
I am preparing to say goodbye and I’m scared. I don’t want my dog to be in pain and I’ll never let her suffer but I know that letting her go is going to destroy me. I know it will take me ages to “get over” (not that you can get over it) her death and adjust to not having a dog.
How long will it hurt for? How long will it take me to get past it? How long did it take you to reach a new normal when it stopped hurting daily?
