Hello @amberk77,

I was so touched by your post, you had a real star in Harlem, and a real gift for sharing his spirit – it came through loud and clear in your words, I almost felt like I know him a little. Not knowing what to do, feeling as unprepared and lost as you said in that post, is perfectly normal given this loss, especially given how special Harlem sounds. I’ve lost several dogs over my time, and I can honestly say that every time it has been just as disorienting; grief is never easy.

How have you been since you posted last? Have you managed to connect with any others in the forum? I know others, such as @Lissy and @Morgana1963, have also lost a loved one recently, it might help to talk with them about what might have helped them to cope in these early days. I would encourage you to keep talking to us, as a community; it really helps to share.

It might also help to find some guidance on coping with loss, this article might help:

Come back and tell us how you’ve been.
