I didn't replace my son with a dog. After I lost him, I didn't want to die, so I purchased a valuable piece of livestock that I thought would work as a personal security system and a cat substitute.
Laurel was the one who decided to heal my heart.
I support you whatever you decide and will SQUEEEE over any new chi or chi mix. We are not being insensitive and of course no one will ever replace Coco or my child, we have just both learned that letting someone new into your life can be very healing while you are in mourning.
Even planting seeds and caring for houseplants helps me to feel that I am still part of the universe.
Please take good care of yourself and let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
