After 16 years I lost Cadbury. A big lovable mush. I was so depressed and my other dog Snowflake was depressed too. I was having a very hard time getting over it. My husband decided to buy Flurry for me for my birthday, initially I was reluctant. It was the best thing I could have done. Between the potty training and daily mischief I did not have as much time to think about it, Snowflake at 15 is in a second puppyhood and Flurry has won a special place in our hearts right alongside Cadbury and Snowflake.
A month later my cousin was very depressed because she lost her cat, she lives alone with her cat and was so sad. After just going through a big loss I told her go out and rescue another cat, she seemed surprised but she did it, and although her new kitty can't replace her long time companion he has helped her to heal and she has a companion to share life with.
I am sorry for your loss. When you look at pups really look there is one waiting just for you.
