I am new to this group and new to the grieving process if losing a pet. I lost my 4 lb yorkipoo due to a sudden accident a few days ago and it seems my life won’t ever go back to how it was. For me, my dog brought so much joy and happiness to me. I have already begun looking for another companion that I can love and be loved in return just as much. I’ve been waiting for signs that tell me I’ve found the one and I think I have found it. However, I begin to feel guilty in that I don’t want my Murphy to ever think I am replacing him.
How do you get past this guilt of wanting another pet? At times it makes me sick but at times I know it’s what Murphy would want. Any help and advice would be appreciated.
