Our dog that had Emergency surgery back in January to remove his spleen because it had Cancer had to be put down last Thursday. He stopped eating. Would not even eat his favorite treats.

We took him in because we felt that he was suffering and was not going to live much longer. Very depressing. I feel that he was robbed of a full life.

He was the best dog ever and we sure do miss him frown My wife is wanting to get another dog but I am on the fence still. Plus with the pandemic the shelters are closed.

wow, my sincere condolences. He looks like a great pup. I went through this about a year and a half ago with my 14 year old pit bull, and it still stings--but a little less each day. Time heals all wounds.

I am so sorry you lost your friend. You did what you could and you did not prolong his suffering. Give it some time before getting another dog. I believe you also have a cat?

I'm sorry man. It hurts. When you have a special bond, and its gone forever, it really hurts. You gave him a great life and the gift of not suffering.

I'm sorry for your loss pal. I know if I lost my two girls I'd be devastated.. better days ahead if its meant you'll get another dog.

I know our local shelter has said, yes we are closed, but if you seen an animal you're interested in, be it on petfinder, or Facebook, or where ever, reach out to them, they can set up a private meeting with just you, handle all the prescreening interviews and stuff over facetime, zoom, Skype, what ever video conference....

so... when you're ready, don't hesitate to at least reach out to them. they could use the $$, and some lucky mutt could use the love...

I have been in this same emotional space before, my wife and youngest son rushed to get another dog after we lost Sasha, we had a new pup less than 3 months later. Luna has been great, but I still feel I was not over the grieving process for Sasha.

Don't rush, as you mentioned there are already impediments to that right now.

Sorry for your loss. It's a hard time. Remember the good times and know that your buddy was loved. Give it some time before getting a new dog IMO. You need time to heal and when the time is right you'll know.

They too lost a buddy, I think.
