Losing a Beloved Dog Can Be as Hard as Losing a Loved Person
As I look at my aging dog, I know that the time is not that far away that I may have to make that difficult decision. And it is so hard to know.... like yesterday. He was alert, ate all his food, was running around like a happy little pup. Today was a totally different story. Pukeage right away this morning and a complete 180 from what yesterday was looking like.
Days like this morning make me think a bit more about 'Is the time near'? I really don't like even thinking about that, but it's part of any life... dog's or person's.
I ran across this article. And it is so true... although I haven't experienced it first hand, as of yet. I know it's coming sooner than later. I have lost people in my life, and I actually can now imagine it happening to my little pupper.
Have you lost a pet? Do you get another one?
Do you wait a certain amount of time? I know people who never get another dog, and I also know people who go and get another one almost immediately... and also some in between.
