Thread: Pet Loss

  1. #1

    Pet Loss

    This is my first time and I'm looking for support group for grieving pet owners. I just lost my beloved dog 2 days ago and I'm beside myself. I live alone (which makes it more difficult for me) and my dog has been my companion for 13 & 1/2 years. I don't know how I can cope up without him. He has been my companion and best friend and for years and now he's gone. He died in my arms and I was hysterical. I keep asking myself what I did wrong that he has been taken away from me.

    You did nothing wrong, Hun! He was old. You probably gave him the best life you could and you should be happy that you had all those years with him. 13 and a half for some dogs is a lifetime for us. As long as you gave him the best, you should celebrate his life.

    Re: Pet Loss

    Pets become like one of the family. Loyal, uncondtionally loving, forgiving, non-judgemental, always pleased to see you....The chances are your pet is the best friend you'll ever have. So it hurts when their 'time' comes - as inevitably it must.
    But animals have souls, just as we do. The same Spirit of God animates all living things. When your 'time' comes all those you have loved (who have passed over) both people AND pets will be there to greet you. In truth, there isn't any 'death'. Life is a continuum. We will meet our loved ones again.

    Hi Ravenq,

    I can understand how you feel. Pets loss is a huge loss ,especially when your dog has been with you for more than 10 years. Pets are like family members, they become your companion. They give unconditional love. I would advice you to take a new dog and it will help you to cope up with your dog's loss. This would be the only way for you to become normal.

    Take care.
