I'm so very sorry for your loss. What a trauma for you and for your beloved dog.
Penny is not a replacement, she's a testament to your love and affection for Diesel, an affirmation that your relationship with Diesel was such that you need to share that love with another dog.
One day at a time.

Oh my goodness, look at her sweet expression on her face. What a cutie!
Diesel would not want for you to be sad. So enjoy your new puppy and while you will always miss your Diesel, don't feel any guilt about loving your little Penny. She is precious and was meant to come to you in your time of need. That's the amazing thing about the human heart, there is always room for more love.
Give her a big hug, she is too adorable!

Typed words on a forum cannot express how truly sorry I am for your loss of Diesel. I sat here and cried for a while. What happened to you is truly everyone's worst nightmare. My dog's sister slipped her harness and was hit by a car last year in front of her owner. Time has helped to lessen the raw pain but you never forget. I hope that Penny can help fill the void in your heart. Perhaps she is a message from Diesel that you need to go on. Remember Diesel and the good times with a smile....and smile while you make some new memories with Penny....

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.

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.

|wolfy dog||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.|
