I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful boy Harlem. He sounds like an amazing, intuitive and unique companion. It’s so hard to lose our unconditional friends, isn’t it? I love my pets (currently 2 cats, 1 dog) so much and remembering saying goodbye to their predecessors is always heartbreaking.
It’s so wonderful that Harlem was a therapy dog too. My dog is gorgeous but very daft and I don’t think he’s cut out for therapy work!
It’s hard not to feel guilty about saving our furbabies, I know, but it sounds like you did everything you possibly could for your gorgeous boy. If there’s an afterlife then I’m sure he knows how much you loved him and that you were there for him.
I found this article on the Griefline website. I don’t know if it will help but I thought I’d share.
Hugs and take care
