Let me start by saying how sorry I'm for your loss. I too know, what you are talking about, some people just donot get it. Our pets are a member of our families and a better friend than our human ones are. So if feel like bawling, do it. Its your right. You need to grieve the way, you feel. Donot feel pressure to get over it. You came to the right place. We will support and encourage each other in our time of grief to help our healing.
MichelleShebbasmom is so right. I get that rection as well from people. You should grieve in any manner you wish. There are stages of grievig and if you're not "allowed" to go through that, you won't be able to be at peace w/ your loss Hang in there honey. And if you need to chat , vent, I'm here.
I too lost "only a dog" (Laney) yesterday morning without the chance to say a proper goodbye. She belonged to my ex-husband (he and I are still very good friends). She was a very big part of my life for the years we were married and I was happy to still see her from time-to-time even though he and I no longer lived together. She quit eating about a week ago and we took her to the vet two nights ago. My ex called me with the prognosis very early yesterday morning. It was cancer. Her lungs were collapsing and it was recommended to have her put to sleep. Before my ex could even leave the house to pick me up to go to the vet's to say our final goodbyes to Laney, the vet called again. Laney had just died. There's no way we could have gotten there in time. I'm trying hard to take solace in that she was with people who could care for her and make her more comfortable than we could have, that she knew nothing in the end and simply went to sleep one last time. I don't know the circumstances, but I'm sorry for your unexpected loss, boboston, and hope that every day will become a little easier and a little less sad for you. freakiecat
