A year now

My dog has been gone for a year now but it seems like just yesterday I went through the pain of losing him. Moments still come and go where I catch my self calling out for him and them I remember oh wait never mind he's gone. His blanket is still in his bed and his toys still in his basket. The only thing missing his him. People tell me to get another dog but that's like telling me to replace a child it's just never going to be done.

I am so so sorry. I really am. I still have my angel dog's blankets, some toys, and his collar. I miss him greatly and had him for many years. I was blessed that he was able to meet my first daughter. He loved her so much. He couldn't live forever even if I wanted him to live past his years. I couldn't get another dog. Nothing could ever come close to compare. Then one day, someone gave me a dog that had been servery abused. We helped him through parvo and he survived. Now, I've had him for a few years. He's not my angel. Though he is good company. At times he really does remind me of my first boy. They are both very sweet, gentle, docile spirits. He never will replace my angel, but he doesn't have to., I can love and be grateful for both. So I'm very sorry you are feeling this way. Give it time, and maybe one day, you might find another spirit that needs your help too.
