I also have two dogs, one is about 12 and the other one is 8.
I have had dogs all of my life, and they were all big ones. I like german shepards. But the bigger they are the younger they go on you. It is so hard, but once somebody told me, just think about how fortunate you were to have this companion and remember the good times. So I try to look at it that way. It does make it somewhat easier, but I still grieve every dog that I ever had, they are so special. They love unconditionally and I think that is what causes us to love them so much.
We are here for you, remember that. We will help you through the grief when the time comes. Bless you for loving animals so much. You are a very special person.
