I lost my dog just over a month ago. He was almost 18 years old. I’ve never lost someone close to me and this came as the biggest shock. I knew he was old and it was his time, but it didn’t make it any easier. I have so much guilt in me that I should’ve taken him for one more walk or gave him a little taste of my peanut butter. I was so focused on work sometimes I feel like i should’ve been more focused on him. I miss him everyday and still continue to hurt. I don’t want to forget him and I’m scared I will. Any advice on how to continue?

You will never forget. I lost my Husky Lady 25 yrs ago and still remember the day like yesterday. I still have a locket of hair and her collar.
My little girl Liberty died just five days ago on Christmas day. She was just 3.5 yrs old, I feel so cheated and the pain is enormous. Your very lucky to have had your dog that long. Be calm and try to grieve on your own terms.
Sorry for your loss.

You will never forget. I promise you as long as you breath you will for ever remember the journey that you shared. I lost my first love, Dakota 19 years ago and I remember so much about him and all the things we shared that made my life with him wonderful. He was only 6 years old and was cheated out of a long life with me but God called him home to be his perfect angle. You will always feel guilt, because it's a part of grieving. It will fade in time and you will replace those feelings with more loved and cherished memories. The should of, could of's will always pop up and you need to let them go. You loved and were loved. You both shared a journey that was meant to be. It doesn't matter the amount of time we shared our lives with them it still hurts. I lost my Heart dog last September (he was 16) and the tears still fall but memories of that awful last day is fading (not completely gone) and I remember the great things I shared with Termy. You will too, just give it time and be gentle and kind to yourself, Your fur baby would want that.
Love and doggie hugs
Termy's mom

Thank you both so much for your kind words. I’m hoping time will heal. I’m sending thoughts to you about your fur babies as well
