I hope you find a good support group. I am not in the LA area. I live in the UK. But I remember trying to reach out just after my Misty passed, and finding nothing in my area also.
I called the vet's office and asked if they knew of a pet bereavement support group. They had never even heard of such a thing!
I didn't know how I was going to manage without help and support. And space, and time, and understanding, to express how I felt and honour my Misty's life, and express my sorrow and sadness.
It occurred to me to start one. Maybe I should have done. I thought of others who might be in the same situation. I have no counselling training, but I guessed that might not matter, as the group would just be friendly support and understanding rather that any "psych" therapy stuff.
But I couldn't imagine being able to do it at home as my rooms are terribly small, and the cost of hire of a village hall....well I couldn't get my head around it at the time.
But that is worth a thought, if you have the energy for that, and a large enough living room to host meetings? You could have a donation pot for the cost of coffee and cookies?
I am very sorry for your loss. It does get a little easier as time goes by; easier to handle, and the acute pain lessens. But missing them -I have to be honest -never ever goes away. Many blessings x
Thank you. I’ll consider that . In the meanwhile I know I’m not alone about losing a loving pet ...but I can’t deny I’m alone and or feel alone without him. He was just 4.... not enough time to not get attached and not enough time t ok say he was old and got sick.... I’m not invalidating anyone’s loss. Peace and love . Toby was a great dog . I love and miss him. Accidents happen. I’m not mad at the person driving the car. It was a total accident ...love is good
