Dogs grieve as well I think but not for to long as they realise life goes on, so be strong for them and your Mrs -remember this feeling will pass in time and then you will have the good memories.

You will probably notice that your other dogs are subdued at the moment as well - this always happens when they lose one of their pack but as Greenman says, they will grieve for a while and then get on with life with new group dynamics.

Sorry to hear about Lassie.  You will always have your memories of her and perhaps when you and your wife feel ready you will have space for a rescue dog.  Time does heal eventualy.

I am so sorry for your loss Pete, give yourself time to heal, don't expect to much of yourself, give yourself all the time you need and take comfort in the good memories you both shared.

I've only just seen this -  so, so, sorry Pete. I know exactly how you are feeling. They burrow right into your heart don't they?

Be brave Pete, a friend of mine once said the pain we feel when they go is the price we must pay for the pleasure they give when they're with us.

So sorry for your loss.

Our little girl (she was so much more than a dog to us, she was our girl). I found this site and entered her details and lit her candle. It helped at the time and is there anytime I want to be near her in a cyber way!.

Thought it might be of use to help you through the darkest days.
It does get easier as time goes by.

When you are ready Pete why not plant a special tree or bush in her memory in the garden as well. Ive done that in the past.

12 months tomorrow Sep 27 i had to put my big boy to sleep.

2 months later his son lay down in my kitchen and died,yes i expect from a broken heart.He had never been without his Dad.

Butch+Celt 2 golden Shihtzus were the loves of my life.I miss them terribly.

8 months on i now have a B/W Shih tzu called Rap.

My heart goes out to all who have lost a pet.

Writing about ones loss really helps,try it.xx
