My 6-year old Marco Polo died on December 22 2017, i am still crying, especially when I see someone put something where he used to be, for example, I have a broken toe and I needed a place to stand my crutches. My mom layed them where his cage used to be. My sister just got a puppy and when there was still snow she played just like Marco did, I ended up crying as i ran upstairs. I don’t even enjoy being in my house because it seems every corner has a memory that makes me want to fall down and cry for eternity. I did not even enjoy Christmas. It was not the same without him helping me and my brother wake up my parents. He did not even get to omen his presents or his stocking. The only pets I have left are a chinchilla named chubz and a beta fish named matalia. I don’t know if we are going to get another dog soon, my mom is hesitant on the kind of dog me my brother and my dad want to get, we want a giant schnauzer. Marco was a standard schnauzer. The day he died I didn’t even move after I saw him, he died in his bed just as the priest rested his hand on Marcos side. I just layed there praying and sobbing.

I am so very sorry for your loss :( Time heals all wounds, or at the very least, makes them hurt a little less. You lost him very suddenly and only very recently. These wounds are fresh and raw.
My heart is with you. I just lost my baby girl and I am struggling. Focus on the good times. You gave your dog a great life. That is all we can do.

Hello my friend, I just wanted to comment and let you know that I too share your pain. I had to send my dog Braveheart to Heaven this past Saturday, March 3rd. He was suffering from dementia and heart failure. I have grieved pretty hard these past 2 days, but I went on a drive earlier. I drove around for a straight hour, and this was very therapeutic for me. I realized that my Braveheart wouldn't want me to be sad. And neither would your Marco. Your Marco wants you to know that he is in Heaven and he is rejoicing! He is now in the best place that exists! He is with God, and he is with so many other animals. Marco is looking down on you from Heaven, and he is telling you to be happy, and to rejoice with him. He has a new body now, and he is in perfect health. And God is taking very wonderful care of Marco 😉 You will see him again, my friend. One day, we will be reunited with our furry loved ones. Oh, what a wonderful day that will be!
Treat yourself kindly, my friend. Eat your favorite snack, visit your favorite place, go on a long walk, go on a drive. I am here to listen if you ever need to vent. Just know that you are not in this alone. And know this; your baby loves you still, and you will see him again. <3
