Depression, Broken heart.

My Sonny Boy was put to sleep yesterday. His partner, Sammie (female) was my first Chihuahua. She was "mama" to Sonny when I got him 12 years ago. They have been in-separable ever since. Last night was the first night ever that they haven't slept together.

She is lost. I'm giving her all the love and attention that I can, but she is looking for him and waiting. She already has lost weight during this last week that he was sick. Even though she is eating as much if not more from the extra attention and snacks that I keep feeding her.

What else can I do for her.

Frankly, I feel your pain, I truly do - I had my little 17yo Mini Foxy put down about 6 months ago and whilst I was devastated to lose him, I took so much solace from knowing that he'd had a fantastic life and now he was no longer feeling old with aches and pains but instead was frolicking with his mate of 15yrs, a Golden Retriever. When I managed to pull myself together and think along these lines, I was able to feel happy for him and privileged that it was me who gave him that life, my tears stopped and were replaced with a shaky smile.
