It's really difficult o get attached to your dogs especially if you treated them as a family member. Hans is my 6 yr. old Cocker spaniel. He is the smartest among all dogs and my one and only companion at home. I usually miss him whenever I wake up in the morning. He sleeps with us and stays with us wherever part of the house we are in. Pepper is our dalmatian dog. He is supposed to turn 2 this November and he is very playful and loving. We miss our dogs. I hope our family can get over this. Anyway we still have 3 dogs left.

This must be an extremely difficult time for you and your family, I'm sorry to hear that you've lost two family members in one month. I'm a huge dog lover so I realize that losing a dog is the same as losing a human companion, I do hope that the memories of your dogs helps you through these times.

First I want to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I don't think it matters if you have one dog or a dozen. When you lose one it's heart wrenching. We lost Bo Last December and I still mourn for him. Then we lost Bandit about two months later. I still have my three girls. All are Boston Terriers except for one who is a Chihuahua. Our yard is fenced in but they still managed to get out. Bo was out-going and exuberant. Bandit was reserved and very loving. My hope is that God has a place for these guys in heaven and I'll be able to see them again. Your family will move on. You'll never forget your four-legged family members but in time you'll be able to remember them with more smiles and a little less tears. Bo and Bandit have been gone almost a year and I'm looking forward to the day I can really think about my buddies with less tears and more smiles. It still hurts and I can still be reduced to tears if I think on it to much. Again, my condolences for your precious loss.

It is hard to lose any animal, especially an intelligent one like a dog. I had a border collie cross, we called her Roxie, for 15 years and then she had a stroke and the vet said she would not get over it and she should be put to sleep. My eyes filled with tears every time I saw another dog, I couldn't bear to stroke one or talk about dogs for five months. Eight years later I still miss her, I miss her intelligent eyes, her pricked up ears and her special smell. Since moving to Greece our hearts have been touched by the plight of abandoned dogs here. I did not want another dog, but gradually dogs in need have come our way. Two were given, two were found and two have found us. It is a little scarey because I wonder where this will end - this country abounds in homeless dogs...

Sounds like Parvo virus, highly contagious between dogs all the best urban

A vet can immunise dogs against this, here in UK it is general practice to protect puppies against this. all the best urban

That's too bad. We have many dogs at home. Really. There's a lot. Got more than ten and still counting. HAHA! There's more to come. We also experienced having our dogs die. My mom was very sad. She treats our dogs as if they are also her children.

Im sorry to hear about your dogs. I have experienced losing three dogs and yes they were all missed and loved, but life has to move on. I know it will take time but you can overcome the sadness you are feeling right now.
