Thanks for posting this. My little girl (dog) died 12 weeks ago today and I am still struggling so much. She was 17 and we had been together since she was 6 months old. When I’m having a bad day (like today) I seem to focus on all the negative things – the times she was sick, or questioning whether I made the right choice at the end. I also think that I may not have allowed myself to grieve fully when my little boy (dog) died two years ago, and it’s coming out now as well. I’m not looking after myself properly, and I’m sleeping very badly. But, this article really helped. Thanks.
