Dear sydney1201, I'm truly so sorry for your pain. Most of us, including myself, were still hurting greatly at 10 weeks. This grieving process takes a long time. We are all different in our experience but, in general, I think it is safe to say it takes a long time. There is no other loss quite like it. It is a cruel fact that animals don't have as long of a life span as we do so, in most cases, we will lose them before we pass ourselves. Oh, how we wish we could have them longer. I agree with creampuff...I completely believe we will be with them again one day when the time comes. I hope you will find time to go back and read some threads from pages that are buried because there are some threads that will give you hope for the future. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.
