I can completely understand where you are coming from. I lost 2 family dogs within a 6mths / 1 year of each other. It is a terrible feeling of emptiness and sadness because you remember the good times you had. I can tell you that it does get easier as time goes on. It took me about
6 months to get used to the idea. The last dog we lost was cremated and she will have her ashes scattered in a special place in Scotland, UK (When my mum eventually goes!). Right now she sits in a casket on the front room table and every time I return from Uni, I always make sure I say hello.
I guess the moral to the story is that time is a wonderful healer.
Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
