lose of a pet

October 12, 2017 6:14pm CST
So November is right around the corner and I am not looking forward to it at all. Last year on the 6th my dog who was 15 years old passed away and took my heart with him. For the longest time I was stuck in a dark place where I could not and did not want to function. no one understood why I was acting this way they said he was just a dog but he was so much more than that to me. He was my best friend, the one who always loved me even when I did not love myself. He was more like my child than my dog. is this normal or was I being and am I being to sentimental about him?

Maybe you were just too close to him. Or maybe he was the nearest to you all the time the more reason you feel this way.

You have to grieve and remember the fun and love. It's heartbreaking to lose a pet.

That is so true the heartbreak is so bad at first but the good times pull you through. I am just glad I have so many pictures of him

As the saying goes "Dogs a man's best friend", and a friend can also be in any form as long as he or they are always there for you especially when you're alone... In this times that many people are busy in everything, we turn to our pets, and dogs are the best ones, as far as I know...I have also lost one of our dog, well I'm so sad at that time but time heals wounds and be strong...and being strong you'll come to understand why things happened...

That is one of the reasons why I don't want a pet because they usually die before their owners - and I would be too sad. Sorry for your loss.
