Awwwww. I'm so sorry you had a big, huge meltdown today. Those things hit us out of the blue, and they can really knock the wind out of us, can't they? That is what happened to you today. I think most of us have had days like that when something just smacks us in the chops with the reality of our losses. There's no need to feel guilty. It's absolutely normal to feel that way, but if you had had any idea those treats were there, or that they might be the last ones, you would have given them to your pups in a heartbeat. We all know (and so do they) that you weren't holding out on them. ;-) I agree with Karen ~ hold onto the treats until you decide what you want to do with them. You might even decide to hang onto them a while longer, just as mementos of the joy they brought your pups. Look at the treats and recall the excitement they always created, and then revel in the memory of those wonderful days gone by. yes, tears will flow, but how could you possibly help buy let a smile shine through at some point? I didn't even know Zippy and Buzzy, but just picturing your two smiling rotties brings a big smile to my face. I'm so glad you came here to post about this today. I remember many times in the past when I had similar meltdowns, and how much it helped me to post here and find a whole community of virtual shoulder to cry on and arms to enfold me. I hope you will always feel the same comfort here. xoxoxo
