This has been a really hard couple of months to handle for me... this started in December. My daughter had a therapy dog, Nala. We had her since her 1st birthday. Nala became more than just for my baby girl. She protected all of us. The cable guy and landlord all experienced you couldn't just come on this property and start yelling or make anyone cry. She put herself between us and them. She even followed landlord out driveway to make sure he was gone. Then this year instead of enjoying christmas I had to hide it from my kids that Nala wasn't with us. Santa didn't just bring gifts, he took Nala with him.. I know I was wrong but I couldn't ruin christmas day for my babies. Well Nala had 9 babies couple years before she passed. I ended up keeping one, my mowgli. He was HUGE. He was like Nala but to me. He was my best friend. If I was sick or anything, no matter I was he came running. If I needed him, he was there... he listened to me vent and all. For 1st time since I can remember I felt save in life.. I had 3 kids now... But last couple days be seemed like he didn't feel good. I was hand feeding him to make sure he was eating and drinking... well this am I wake up and he has went to be with momma. I can't stop feeling like I lost a child. I feel like my best friend is gone. My safety net is no longer here... the church across the street plays their bells every Sunday and this am for some reason I broke soon as I heard them. They usually make me feel at ease. I just dont know.

I'm so sorry for your losses. Did you consult with a vet to tell you what went wrong? Maybe some answers will help you. It is impossibly hard losing a loved one let alone two in such a short time. It is completely normal feeling the way you do. But it is grieving and grieving takes time to heal. Give yourself time and you will finally cope with this and find the peace we are all looking for in here.. We are all in this together. Stay strong
