I really hope everything works out and you get another chi. No dog will ever replace Nemo, but it is always great to have another little one to love and care for. I wish you all the best! :)

I spoke to Nemo's breeder earlier she was devarstated about what happened to my little boy but said she knew how much I loved him and how happy he was, She said she was breeding Nemo's mum and dad again in a few months and if I wanted I could have pick of the litter so I would have a full brother or sister to Nemo. I know it wont be my little boy but part of him would still be inside this other puppy. I'm still thinking about what to say to her. The pup wouldn't be available for about 6 months so I would be able to grieve for my baby but also have his legacy live on.

I think it is a great ideal no one will ever replace your little Nemo but its good to grieve but it is also good to move on and care and love a new little girl/guy like you loved nemo and yes it would be alot of him in the new puppy. I hope everything works out for you...

Many blessings...

I agree that getting little Nemo's brother or sister would be a wonderful way of keeping his legacy going. I cant bear to think what I would be like if anything happened to Poppy but I do know that I would get another baby chi again, as they are all little angels who need a loving home :)

My mum and sister went to see Nemo's breeder today and to give her some photos of him and a letter from me because I wasn't quite ready to go in person. They saw Nemo's mum and his brother Alfie (moon , yes like eastenders to all the english people lol) who was over twice the size of little Nemo as was his sister Bonita. She told them that the puppy was mine and I could choose which one. Nemo may not be with me physically but he will be in spirit, I said yes to having the other puppy but it wont be born for 6 months so I wont have him or her for at least 8 months which gives me time to accept the loss of my little boy. Also we found out Alfie has a similar accident with bumping his head but with him it was falling off the couch, but they managed to save Alfie at the vets because he was soo much bigger (3 pounds). I was so lucky to have him even the breeder said he was the prettiest little chi she had ever seen. I was thinking of getting a little girl tho this time if there is one available that way Nemo will always be my little man.

Man i cry every time i read this.
I think getting a new pup, especially from the same parents as Nemo is a great idea. The timing will be good and you have the right attitude...nothing will replace Nemo, but it would be nice to have a part of him in the new chi.
Keep us updated!

I've had a few people who are involved in the dog world recommend I have bereavement councilling because of how I lost Nemo and to prevent prolongued bereavement and depression. Also due to the fact that I work with dogs it reopens old wounds on a daily basis when I see everyone else has their best friend and I lost mine.

I was so close to him my mum is even finding it hard to believe I went into work everyday this week, I told I had to for the dogs I look after they need me. I'm really finding it hard especially at night I miss him snoring on my pillow next to me and I even cuddle the pillow he died on every night and put his dog tag on a chain and wear it around my neck so I feel he's still with me. I'm so upset I just come home from work and go and cry myself to sleep, my family says I'm going through something similar to someone when they lose a baby because I was never apart from him for a minute and I tried my hardest to protect him. I loved him so much.

I'd be honored to leave a message for your baby, once the site is working.

I think bereavement counseling is a great idea and you could really benefit from it. I don't find it odd that you went to work every day. Sometimes sticking to your normal routine during a tragedy makes you feel more in control and less like you're about to fall apart from the grief.

I know you miss your baby boy even more than you're able to express. And don't worry, he knows it too. :)
