i just went through this too...after 6 years in a relationship. fortunately my heart broke a long time before i actually left, so now i don't feel sad...but i too, told him that i was taking the dog. i did feel bad taking the dog away, but in reality...i was the one that cared for him 99.9% of the time. what has helped me during my transition is taking him for long walks in the park and having him with me when i run errands and what not. the dog is a good distraction...and they love you no matter what! in fact, i think his life is even better than it used to be. i'm glad you have your remy to keep you company...take it one day at a time...and if you need hugs you know you can always get them from your furry little beast.
