I am sure a lot of people feel this way after losing their best friend. It is very hard for me, bc I am a HUGE animal person and seeing random dogs always use to make me so happy. I would ask people about their dogs and want to see pictures, I would pet any dog I saw walking past. It use to bring me so much joy. Ever since I lose my sweet beagle in a traumatic way, I get sad and angry and jealous when I see other dogs now. I get mad, why do they get to keep their best friend and I lost mine so suddenly? Why did this happen to me? I know there is no reason for any of this.  And I am sure these feelings won't last forever, but it is so hard now. And all my friends have dogs and they just talk about their dogs in front of me. It is like I can't escape it. Has anyone had these feelings and what did you do about them?

I am sorry. I can see how you would feel that way. Please keep in mind that anger is one of the 'stages of grief' for all who have lost. Own and respect your feelings, as you are. I think you will move through the grief and pain to where you dont feel so angry or jealous one day. Again, so very sorry you lost your pup in a traumatic way. Praying for you.

Having feelings like that is normal and all part of the process of working through the trauma of our loss. Don't try to get rid of them. Just accept that they are normal even though they make you feel uncomfortable. In time they will lessen in intensity. The real issue here isn't those's that you miss and want your beagle and are suffering from the trauma. It's really important to be able to talk about what happened with your dog and talk about it until you can't talk anymore. What worked very well for me was pet loss hotlines. They are free and the people on the other end are there to listen.
