So my GF works for Rover.com, and watches dogs and cats in our area.
She went to do a meet and greet this evening, for potential pet sitting for a lady on a weekly basis.
She walks in and up come the two dogs.... And one of them is a McNab, just like our Sadie Mae ! I had to ask her if she kept it together, and she did. I then asked her if she told the lady about our beloved McNab and she did. Again I had to ask, did you keep it together, and she actually did.
I told my GF that she must be tougher than I am, because I think I'd have broke down and cried like a baby !

How do you think you would fare in her shoes ?

I'm glad that your girlfriend had a positive experience with dog. Some people are able to compartmentalize like that. It doesn't make them unemotional or uncaring, or anything like that. I actually admire people like that. I would have probably flat out lost it, which is not a professional response in a work situation. I wear my heart on my sleeve and it has never worked to my advantage. Your girlfriend sounds awesome. I hope that you both are working through your grief and finding strength in one another.

Warm regards,
Katie

Thank you Katie. We are definitely using each others so shoulders to cry on. And still talking about, and trying to work through all of our feelings about Sadie.
I think she has a little more guilt, and doubt, about how we took care of... Or tried to take care of Sadie. But I told her we did all that we knew to do. Sadie had a lot of great vets brainstorming over her, but it just was not meant to be.
