And I'm still grieving for her. People don't want to hear about her any more. She was 1, a bichon frise, and the best pet anyone could have. She was doing fine until this year when we moved to Arizona. She suddenly went downhill so fast. I had her put to sleep on September 7th. She used to sleep with me but could no longer tolerate sleeping on the bed. Instead she'd go into the bathroom and sleep on the tile floor. I miss her so much. I still cry over her, and talk to her every day. She was my precious little girl, and gave me so much unconditional love. I don't know how I will ever get over her.

I meant to say, she was 14, not 1.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss but I'm glad to hear that she was 14 (not 1); clearly she had a long good life. Remind yourself of that fact when the tears start to flow, you may even find yourself smiling through those tears as you remember the love and fun she brought to you.

I'm still grieving for my 11 y.o. dog whom we lost in May. I don't cry anymore but I still long for her. It gets better but never completely goes away, and that's not a bad thing.

Hugs to you

I'm so sorry for your loss. People need to understand that grief has its own time table. It took me a while before I could mention my dog's name without crying. Now I can talk about the good times I had with my dog and laugh. It takes time.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My pup went to the Rainbow Bridge last week, and I am also having a very difficult time.

I am sorry for your loss, too. My cat died yesterday at home.

A friend of mine had two dogs put down (they were sibs) in the past two months. My sister had to have her cat put down a few months back, and another friend her dog in September. All of them wrote to me to tell me of their sympathy because they are still grieving, too.

It's going to take a while to adjust to her not being here. I just want her back, and I want her back the way she was when she was healthy and none of that is possible.

I suggest doing some grief therapy work. You can find a book on Amazon, I did some of this after our cat died, with my daughter, it was very Therapuetic, and we both felt better.

We still remember him. He has been gone for three years.

They don't live long enough.
