Hi @izzytay04,

Thank you for your post. It sounds like Tayla was a beautiful part of your life, and that she had a wonderful time with you after you rescued her. What you shared of your life together sounded so rewarding and fun for you both. Her dying was so sudden and she was such an important and central part of your life, that I can appreciate what a hole her loss has left in your life.

You are not alone in finding this very difficult. Many people struggle when their pet dies, especially when the pet has had such a central place in their lives and when a pet has been so dearly loved like Tayla. We have some information on losing a pet and some tips on coping here:

Losing a Pet

It can also be challenging to get the support needed (especially when Tayla used to go with you to most places). There is also some information how to seek comfort here. I hope there are some useful ideas in there for you.

Coping with Grief

And we would love you to keep sharing here how you’re going here. If you need to talk, our helpline number is 1300 845 745.
Take care.
