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.

Just comfort her. She is going to grieve like you do and it will take awhile for both of you. I am so sorry for your loss. I posted this in another thread but I am going to send it to you too. A friend sent me this poem when I lost my Chelsea.


They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

Thank you Huly. I didn't realize until today how much of a back seat Sammie had taken to Sonny over the years. We are both lost. I'm trying to comfort her, but in all honesty, I just want to go hide somewhere alone.
I have felt that way multiple times. Maybe both you and Sammie can go curl up in bed and share a good cry together. Also do you have something that has his scent on it that might give her a little comfort? It is not going to be easy and I am not going to tell you that time will heal your wound as that wound never heals you just learn to live with it.
