Hi all,
I lost my little dog two days ago..I was leaving for work and I was going down the road I heard a thump. I jumped out of the car and ran to him.. I was in so much shock I didn't know what to do only to ring my sister.. I think he died almost instantly but still rang the vet. But I have not stopped crying and I am hurting like I have never hurt before he is our first dog and there is no replacing him can anyone give me advice on how to help with the grieving and the unbearable pain I have .
Thanks
Stefanie

What you experienced is unlike my experience, but one thing I can tell you is that it doesn’t matter how our pets die, we still blame ourselves. That might be something you notice as you read through what others have posted. This guilt sinks deep and overwhelms us. For me, I just remind myself of the love I shared with my baby and I’ve remained grateful for it every time I think of it. The guilt is still there for me, but the beautiful thing about having a pet is their unconditional love for us. They can be hurt by their owner and still want nothing more than to see them happy. You loved your little dog dearly, and I’m sure that’s what he will remember fondly about his life. You did everything you could and I’m sure your little dog still loves you and wants to see you happy once more. It may take time to get there, and that’s okay. Let yourself feel what you’re going through. It takes time to push through the pain of it all, so please be patient with yourself. Do whatever you need to in order to feel a sense of normalcy, or to feel like you’re honouring your pet. I like to say goodnight to mine, and hold a pillow in his place to make space for him, among other little rituals. Everyone has their own way of coping. Do whatever you need to, even if you think others might think it’s weird. Grief is unique to everyone’s experience.
Take care Stefanie <3

The same thing happened to my baby chihuahua yesterday. I know exactly how you feel and I know how challenging it is. It’s hard for me to do anything- to sleep, to eat, to think. I am thinking of your fur baby and we will get through this.

I am so sorry for your pain and heartache.  It is so tragic any way our little ones leave us....natural or otherwise.  Heart pain, I believe, is the worst kind of pain.  It happens b/c there is so much love between us and our "babies" that it becomes so hard to cope.  Please know that we are here for you in pain and sorrow.

Please try to take care of yourself.

Hugs,

Bella's mom Bev
