    Jess, when Mandy died, I didn't think I could go on living. I still won't get rid of her toys or toy box eight years later, I tear up if I try.

    It hurts so bad, like your heart's been ripped out. :'( It takes a long time to heal. Raven and Rudy will help you. (((hugs)))

    So sorry! RIP Tasha!
    Owned by my baby and heart-dog Lolli.

    If each pet we love takes a part of our heart and replaces it with a part of theirs, my heart is a very strange collection of pieces, but I wouldn't have it any other way

    It's how I feel. I just want to sleep so I don't have to feel. It gets worse every day right now. It's unbearable. I can't eat, I don't even feel hungry. I feed the pups and pet them but it's like I don't have the other feelings I should. I woke up this morning and turned to pet Tash, and she wasn't there. I don't know what to do. I keep seeing her face in my mind. Nothing dulls the pain, except to be asleep. Nothing.

    Hon - how you feel is so so understandable and normal. My only concern is that if you go without eating too long it could really hurt you.

    Consider seeing your doctor just to check in. S/he may suggest a temporarydose of meds, just so you can stay healthy. We need you and your pups need you.

    HUGS.

    Yes, I agree with above comment. I don't really know you except as a member of this group and I would hate it if something bad happened to you. Truly we all understand the loss of a beloved pet/friend but we must continue for those pets still with us. Probably they are mourning also and wondering where is Tasha. They too need comforting and love as do you. I don't know how long one can go without eating (I've rarely had that problem) but I think it is probably not a healthy thing to do long term. I/we all know it's very difficult right now but you must put one foot in front of the other and go through the motions of moving and living and taking care of the other dogs. ONE DAY AT A TIME!

    Thru tears I send you my deepest condolences. Felt the same way you're feeling when I lost Sami and then again a few years later when I lost Sasha. It hurts and is just about the worst thing ever. I'm so very, very sorry.

    Each day that passes will get a little better, easier. Know that Tasha is watching over you and still wants you to be happy.

    Even call your vet or a shelter/humane society. They may know a doctor who will understand! HUGS.

    When I lost Cassie, I called my employee assistance program through work. I felt very silly explaining why I was calling. But the rep I spoke with has 3 dogs and completely understood why I was calling and what I was feeling. He was terrific.

    Aww, we are here for you, and completely understand. Grief is a powerful force, and needs proper help whether it is for a child or a pet or a friend.
