Ohh man it has been a week. We lost my sweet girl Lady. She was 1 1/2 years old and a pit bull. She was hit by a car 3 days ago. I have such a hard time bonding with anything human or animal but she was my baby. Every time I looked at her I couldn’t help but smile even when I was mad. She loves to snuggle and forced snuggles any chance she got. I am so torn up about this.

I have lost a few loved ones in my life before but I have never had such a strong emotional reaction. I wonder how I am going to keep going. I can’t focus on work. I either can’t sleep or can’t wake up. I have a 6 year old daughter she is what keeps me going. Man it is so hard to greave and watch your child and husband greave wile trying to pick up the pieces and regain some type of normalcy for them. I feel so broken today. I need to try and snap out of it I just don’t know how.

Grief is so hard and heavy. I'm so sorry about this devastating news. Sounds like she was part of your family, maybe even your best friend. It's very normal to have this strong of an emotional response to loss. What you're feeling is normal, and it is okay to grieve. Try to take it one minute at a time. Then one hour. Then one day. Eventually your lungs will remember how to breathe on their own, and eventually you'll be able to get sleep again. Your loss is recent and close, so right now it's blinding you. Take deep breaths, tell your favorite stories about Lady. Try to find support with your beautiful daughter. She is looking up to you and learning that loving deeply is okay, and so is grieving deeply. Hugs <3

You need to be kind and gentle at this time with yourself, I'm so sorry this happened, we had it happen to us also. Time is what you need also. Maybe try to do something that everyone enjoys? A good movie, picnic, trying to think of some things. I wish you peace of mind. Love, light & hugs!!!

First of all, I’m so so sorry for your huge loss! She was beautiful! We had to have one of our babies euthanized a few months ago and it’s so heartbreaking! He was 14. It’s much harder when they’re so young like Lady. My heart goes out to you and your family. Go ahead and grieve...get it out as a family. Feel it and then move on. She’s running and playing again! 🌹

So sorry that you lost your four footed family member.

Thank you all for your kind words I really needed it yesterday and I’ll probably read them again today when I need them.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have a Pomeranian and he is the light of my life. I can't even imagine losing him. Dogs are such wonderful and loving creatures and they make such good companions we can become even more attached than we realize. I hope your pain lessens soon. Only time can heal such a deep wound. Take comfort that you gave him the best life you could for the time you shared together.
