Of course. The loss of a pet is a loss of a loved one. You invested yourself emotionally in taking care of that pet and in some ways it has paid back the investment to you by bringing you joy just by looking at it, playing with it, and being with it. I lost my puppy Max last March 5, 2011. He was 1 year and 3 months. It took me a week of grieving. I cried every night during that week. Now, I know that he is in a better place.

It is very normal for me to cry when my pets are gone. Since I already regard them as a member of our family. I love China

Ooo I hope your dog got scolded! They have to learn it is not okay to kill smaller animals! That is a horrible way to lose any pet, and I def. understand you getting depressed. I had 3 mice, and I've lost 2...I was really sad over losing both of them, and I'm dreading losing the last one. You're not alone! I'm sorry for your loss.

I think many who have, or have animals can relate to this. It's hard to loose a believed memeber of the family, and you do go through a grieving with them.

Hi friend, sad to hear that you lost your pet hamster due to your dog. Really we will get more pain while losing our beloved pets. I don't have any pets in my house. I have 2 sons and consider them as my pets

hi, chismax, I'm so sorry about that, I hope you're moved on now. It's about four years later, I have a orange cat.My cat then bore three kitten.I'm so happy about that because I love my cat very much.We spend many time together, it will always beside me when I was sleeping or studying in my room.But after three kitten born, the situation was changed.My parents hate them because it make our home very noise and look like cat home than human home.The pup of kitten is everywhere.Then my father throw away all of my cats when I went to school.I was so broken and deep hurt.I remember that I didn't want to eat anything for days.That memories make me afraid to have cats again.Till now I don't want to have cat anymore.One year ago I have bunny.I love it too, but it doesn't have long life with me :((

I've cried because of a pet before. Like you, I had a hamster, who got old and sick, and the vet said we should put him down if we wanted to be kind, or we could take him home and he'd die anyway in pain :( We had him put down, but it was really sad. I also used to have a dog, for nearly 5 years, until my little sister was born...and was allergic to dogs, so we searched and searched for another family who would take her and be nice to her, and when we dropped her off to them I cried then too. :(

Yes, I did. Because we also have emotions with animals and it would be normal because we have emotions.
