I would like to know how it is that people can have another pet after the one they have has passed on. To me that is like intentionally setting yourself up for the same heartache that lasts for months and months. Not to mention the stress I felt at least the last year and watching my dog decline in health. Having a VERY unsportive husband-- told me two days after putting my dog to sleep to "move on". Even though I would like another dog I just can't imagine going through this again. I've had dogs during childhood but for some reason, my most recent dog that I had for 10 years and having had to put to sleep .. this is the most awful feeling I have ever felt... first dog "on my own". It is just the worst feeling I've ever felt and yes, I really like dogs but at the same time I don't think I want to go through all of that again plus the stress I feel when the dog is sick and all. Just wondering if you all have any tips or something on how to not think this way? I know part of life, can't have things both ways, etc. Thank you.
I had to put my dog to sleep five months ago. This was the first Christmas without her. I still cry just about every day and think of her all of the time.
