Oh what a tragic horrible thing to see. I think it is every pets owners nightmare. Xerxes ran away from me one day up onto a super busy highway. Thank god I was able to catch him. Please don't blame yourself. Bad things happen to good people. I hope Penny helps you heal.

I lost my Cody in sept,2012, and I still cry over him. He would have been 12 today. I miss him so much, but am beginning to think more on the good times, and that I got to be the one with him and loved by him during his time to be on this earth. At first all I could think of was his illness and the day he passed but have began to think more on the things I loved about him and things about our life together. We celebrated his brother's 12th birthday today and sang Happy Birthday to Cody too! They are litter mates! Cody and Clipper, my boys! My first gsds! Remember that, that you were the one to get to share her life and love with her and each treasured memory is sealed safely in your heart!

I'm so sorry for your loss Diesel will always be in your heart. Always. The pain will eventually lessen, but he will always be apart of you.

This new puppy, will eventually warm her way into your heart, and you will love again, and bond again. It just takes a little bit of time. Don't think of it as a betrayal. Our hearts are bigger than we know, and your animals love you for it. You need no forgiveness to love another dog. Just go with your heart.

I am sorry. That was just awful to see. And terribly sad.

It will get better. Love this little one and let her help you heal.

I am so sorry that you lost your Diesel. I know the feeling of thinking you never will get over it. I have had to say goodbye to several dogs over my life but the pain does heal, although you will always miss these beautiful creatures. New dogs will come to you when you are ready and Penny came to you just then. I hope you can love her for who she is.

You should talk to a professional counselor, it sounds like you are suffering from PTSD to me.

I hope you refind your happiness with Penny. Penny is your new life---but because you have a new life, does not mean you forget the life that went before.

Counseling may help you get your life and your priorities back on track.

Ask your doctor for a referral to a qualified counselor.

I'm glad you're seeing a counselor, it does sound like you were badly traumatized by the event.

I hope things are getting a little easier now.

How is wee Penny? Do we have any pictures of her yet? I hope she's bringing you lots of joy after your terrible loss.
