Anyone on the forums who I generally talk to alot know this already, (which ain't a large number) but I'm deciding to get this thing off my chest. My dog died several weeks ago.

Its hard to keep on going, even though I do. And when I feel happy about something, I think about it and it makes me sad again. You just never think aobut it until it happens, and it did. Sometimes I just wish humans picked an animal with a longer lifespan to be attached to. But I loved my dog with all of my heart, and I'm just sad to see him go.

Well, this forum isn't for you to show your sympathy towards me (though its welcome) but so I can just get some moral support and some help with moving on.

I know how you feel. My father passed away Monday morning, 20 minutes before I was to leave for finals.

Granted, it's a little more intense than a pet, but yeah.

Just really hard to allow yourself to be happy.

Yeah, I'm not taking any of them.

I didn't mean to like, make it seem like what happened to you was insignificant, I was just saying that I can relate kinda.

Loosing a pet you've had for most of your life and spent most of your childhood with, isn't easy. Of course you're going to feel unhappy and little things will bring back memories you spent with your dog but you'll have to learn to cherish them memories and always know that you gave that dog a good home, a good life and a loving family. I know how it feels to get attached to something you see everyday and love and then loose it, no matter whether it's a human or not.

As they say, a dog is a mans best friend but sometimes in life, you have to let go and just remeber them dearly. It's something to tell your children about, i know my old man told me about his dog when he was young and i loved listening to his stories.

I'm sorry to hear your loss man. Life is unfair and i know that you didn't deserve to loose a father so young. He was there for your childhood, he saw you grow up,become a young man, he gave you advice and most importantly he taught you the ways of life. Now it's up to you to make him proud and make the most of your life as he watches down on you.

Pets are funny that way. They seem to be very able to find thier way into your heart so that it hurts like heck when you lose them. When you lose someone or something so close to you like that, I always feel horrid that I can be happy WITHOUT them. Like I was betraying what they where to me. To be terribly afraid to have it not hurt anymore. After awhile it doesn't hurt as much. Not like you are "getting over it" but just dealing with sorrow in a different way, remembering when you did have them instead of what you've just lost.

I have a friend who was in the military and told me his outlook on death. He described it as just stepping through a door and having the door lock behind you. When his dad and mother died in the same week it didn't even phase him. It shocked me. I would probably be blubbering like a baby.

Anakin and Ryette sorry for your loss.

Thanks, all of you. Yeah, sometimes I see something like the Pooper-Scooper and remembered how I hated picking up after him, makes me laugh. SOmetimes I look by the back door for him, even though I know he isn't there. Sometimes I can't go to sleep because I can't hear the clanking of his nails on the floor, which ironically kept me up all night when he was around.

Sometimes my sister rings the doorbell multiple times and listens for the dog to bark. Sometimes my brother looks for him, and then cries when he can't find him. But, I am slowly getting over it, and my father is thinking about getting a new dog soon, and I'm not so sure, but I want to. Even though I have my friends and my family, my dog left a void in my heart that no other being, human or animal, will fill. I just hope he is happy where he is, my father told me he left peacefully.

EDIT: It also made me sad, this is going to be my first Christmas without him. We got him something under the tree every year. I think I still might, just so his ghost or what not, can come in and find it, letting him no we haven't forgotten him, and we never will.
