I questioned for a while whether we should get another dog as the thought of going through this kind of pain again seemed too intolerable. But when you have owned a pooch for as long as we did, it seemed illogical not to adopt another dog and have the pleasure of sharing our home with a furry friend, especially as we have the time to give to look after a dog.
Some people may feel that they are being unfaithful to the memory of their furry departed friend by getting another dog , but really getting another dog and giving a loving and caring home is such a positive and caring thing too do, really you shouldn't feel guilty.
I am still at the stage where I can't put photos of Basil up in the house as it upsets me, but I know one day I will be able to do this and remember the happy days he shared with us.
Gizmo our adopted rescue pooch has helped us with our grieving process, and we look forward to many years of joy sharing our life with him.
