rest in peace, doggo
A completely different species of animal can treat you like one of its kind better than most of your own can. Taking their deaths hard is understandable.
Sorry for your loss
Sorry OP. Mine is going to be 2 soon and I'd be devastated if something happened to her. Do you think you'll be getting a dog again?
When mine died last year I was mildly sad but I was more happy because having a dog is annoying as hell, but then my mom bought another one… the cycle repeats once more. I probably have to wait another decade until I'm rid of these current beasts, not that I don't like them, I just find the whole deal annoying/bothersome.
you should get another pet, you'll find comfort in the new companionship. it will be easier to reflect with happiness on the time you had with your dog instead of being overwhelmed by your sense of loss.
sorry for your loss
There should be a mourning period imo.
Also op should adopt a shelter dog.
And it's better if it's a mutt because mutts have better genes, which means the dog will have fewer illnesses ad live longer.
there's this young stray cat I started feeding a couple of weeks ago. It's the only cat I ever fed in my life and I never owned a pet, because yeah too much responsibility and my parents were not really into animals. Also I fear growing too attached to someone or something, which is what owning a companion pet is all about so…
however with this cat I feel it's different because it sleeps for 12+ hours straight under the porch, wakes up at 8pm, eats one meal and then vanishes. I only see it the morning after laying under the porch sleeping as usual.
Quite strange because I read that non-castrated male cats should be very energetic, constantly fighting with other cats and stuff. maybe it does its feline things during night time but honestly I don't see many battle scars on its wizmantle.
This is a manageable relationship to me, because we basically have no interaction. I guess the cat feels somewhat safe around my wizmansion and I feel good helping a wizcat out. In a certain sense I don't consider it "my" cat, i don't own it, it's independent, has its own cat life and just come here for food and shelter. Stray cats are bad ass compared to indoor ones, living their cat life to its fullest
I used to have an intact cat and while he acted a lot more like a dog than any cat I’ve met and was more energetic, he still slept all the time. Cats sleep a lot.
Im sorry bro. Mine has cancer and will die soon. I spent over 6k USD on chemo and have spoiled her and given her an amazing last year/year and a half. I don't know how to say it without sounding like a giant cliche normalfag, but since her diagnosis, making her life great has been the only thing keeping me going and I think im gonna rope when shes gone.
I think you should get another one like others said. Save one from a pound if you can.
You rob the natural world of yourself if you end it like that. Clearly you're an asset worth holding onto, however distressing the passing of a loved soul is.
if you decide to go through with it much peace.
It's only a dog. Just buy another.

wow what a great animal
There's nothing more psycho than caring about animals.
feels like yesterday but already three months ago this was posted, what the hell happened to the time
No sympathy from me OP. I hate dogs. My neighborhood has dogs constantly barking all day. BTW its pointless to even have a dog or pet.
