Try to remember all the good times you've had and remember that it was and (still is) something special. And I'm not saying that overcoming grief is easy but given enough time some wounds will heal. However I'm not that naive, eventually you will start to feel a void as though something is missing in your life and you will start to miss your dog; from that point on i recommend reaching out to people to fill in that void (and reach out and talk to people who have gone through a similar experience). Not to mention family and friends, the emotional support you'll receive will help you get through this.


All the memories I had with her makes me smile, I just miss her and having her around. She was always near me and she couldn't walk because she was disabled. I try to think that she doesn't have to suffer anymore because she had a hard time with her life. She couldn't walk around that much. I just miss her.


Like I said it's not going to be easy, but with time and people it will help you. However when time comes for you to move on or not it will be entirely up to you and no one else. But I would like to think that she did not suffered at all, because you were there for her from the beginning to the end. If anything I would like to believe that she was happy with the time she spent with you and I'm pretty sure you feel the same way too.


It just takes time for me and what happened to her was too much for me to handle, It was just sudden and she died on my arms. I understand that I was with her the whole time but I just wanna keep on seeing her. She was always happy and when she sees me she tries her best to come at me. These moments I will cherish the most. And thank you for being here and talking to me it just makes me feel better and understand more. Thank you so much. And thank you to everybody that left a comment, And I'm sorry for the lost of your pets.

Yea I shut my emotions inside. Then when I do cry I let loose in my bed. I don't let anyone see me cry because I'm a guy of course.


But then you tell everyone over the internet

Be glad, knowing that, even though he's gone, the memory will live on. His body has gone, but as long as the memories exist, he has not died.

I lost my dog of 18 years and recently my 23 year old cat passed away. I have good days and bad days, but the emptiness is always there. I tried to find solace in my other dogs, family, and friends and tried to cherish everyone while they are still here. Life is short.

I kid, I kid...My dog passed away a few weeks ago, best thing to do is remember them.

Personally, he was my last dog. Had 2 pets pass away this past year and I can't deal with getting attached to animals anymore, so no more pets for me.

I had a dog pass away two years ago from lymphoma cancer. At the time it was devastating as he was only six years old. I bottled up my emotions during the time he passed away but I found that it was not helping me through the grieving process. Sometimes it helps to let your emotions go through the process. It's okay to be sad, angry, hurt etc. It never quits but eventually you will stop feeling those emotions as hard as before. Also, what helped me was volunteering at a nonprofit. It doesn't have to be a humane society or animal shelter, just somewhere where you are helping people out who are less fortunate than you. This helped me through the grieving process and eventually I found another dog and another dog to give my time to. I will never forget my previous dog(s) who have passed away but I also must remember with what limited time I have left that I can also give away my time to another dog who is in need of attention and care.

Sorry for the TL;DR post but basically what I am trying to say is the best way to cope is to give away your time to those less fortunate (animals or people). You will find that this helps you tremendously.

It's fine I can't handle taking care another dog because when my dog died it hit me hard and I just couldn't control myself and I couldn't calm down either. When my dog died on my hands I let out everything and now the days have gone by, I'm still sad and mad over what happened.

I'm so sorry for your lost...I can't personally tell you how to cope because I don't know how close you were with your pet...but I can tell you what I'd personally do. I'd go listen to B.A.P...and thats not just because I have a mega complex about them...its genuinely because their music makes my heart happy. I suggest the song Warrior, or Power...maybe Unbreakable...or or...if you want a good song to cry along with to let your heart out the song is called Its A Lie is a good one as well...I'm not advertising them >.> I'm just suggesting them as something to listen to to lighten your heart in a time of sorrow(they are a korean hip hop band) Anyways I'm done rambling and again I am sorry for your loss.

I appreciate the comment, It helps me. I do listen to music like piano to calm me down but it didn't help but make me cry more. It's already been 2 days since it happened and so far I'm calm and trying to think about the good memories I had with her. I just miss seeing her that's all.
K-pop, I prefer SNSD :). I just stopped listening to Kpop and moved on to something else
