So sorry to hear about your loss as I know just how you feel. About 4 years ago I had a little terrior name, Benji. I'd had Benji for 14 years and he was a great friend and companion but when he died I definetly missed him something terriable and to this day I still miss him.

I'm so sorry, 2. I know just how you feel and it hurts, doesn't it? My mom and dad had to put their dog down a year and a half ago and Mom still can't be home alone without music on now. It's just too empty for her. You're in my thoughts...

My heart goes out to you!!! I am so sorry. Sometime people who do not have pets do not understand that they really are a part of your family just as a brother or cousin or any other member. Feel free to use us for support. We all love you and know what you must be going through.
When we put my first cat down I did not think I could ever get another pet. I felt like I would be betraying Tupi if I did that. Well I did get another cat and it did not diminish Tupi in any way. It actually did help me get over the grief and in some ways even helped me remember things about Tupi that I would have maybe otherwise forgotten. My new cat was not a replacement, but he was something else to share some love with and that always helps during a sad time.
