    Oh Karen just devestated for you - what a tragic loss.

    I know you will be feeling very raw at the moment, to lose Ozo and Buster so soon after Mondo, but in time that dreadful pain will ease, and you will be able to remember the happy times you spent together.

    When you feel a little better, if it would help, we would love to hear about them all and it might help you to share them with us.

    This website might also help you

    I really hope that you have family and friends who are being understanding and helping you to cope. Don't let anyone just dismiss this, you need to grieve in your own time, and often we are closer to our animal companions than family and friends, as we spend so much more time and have a special bond with them.

    I have been onto the pet loss website and have read about rainbow bridge - it's such a nice and comforting way to think of pur pets who have passed happily waiting for us to see them again - it's a nice thought.

    My babies who died were Ozo who was 3 and a half, Buster who was 13 and Mondo who was 4. Mondo and Ozo were the best of friends and did everything together. Buster was a little bit grumpy at times and was a bit more independent and kind of did his own thing (we called him Mad Buster - he was a character). We have a bit of land out the back and Mondo & Ozo used to go off hunting together and come back when it suited them. They were always in cahoots together. Ozo attened the eye specialist vet in Dunlaoighre as he had a low tear duct production in his eyes and was on 3 different eye gel's each morning and night (i know it's sounds mad but i used to speak in irish to him and he always understood!) We had kinda a closer bond with the whole frequent vet visits and doing his eyes each morning and night - it was so nice to think that this little doggie trusted me with the eye gel's etc. Mondo was a really loyal and trustworthy dog and companion - himself and ozo used to sleep together in Mondo's basket all snugged into each other. When Mondo died we were all heart broken but my poor little Ozo didn't know what hit him - he was lost for day's and you could tell how much he missed his friend.

    Himself and Buster never really got as close but there was a bond starting slowly but you could always be sure of a disagreement over a toy or jealousy if 1 was petted before the other -little messers. We had gotten another German Shepard - Podge ( Podgey 11 mths old) - shortly after Mon died and himself and Buster hit it off - thick as thiefs - little and large. Podgey would pull buster by the tail for a chase - it was all in the name of fun.

    Poor Podgey is now lost on his own - he came to us when there was 2 dog's here and now it's just him. I've thought of another dog and have the adoption form filled out and ready to go, but stop each time i think of sending it - it feels so wrong and the guilt just kills me. I'd never ever try to replace my babies because they are just so irreplaceable and the garden and house is just so quiet without them.

    It's nice to write about them and think of really nice and good times. Thanks everyone for such lovely comments and for wanting to know a bit about my babies - it's nice to know that there are other dog lovers who understand and now what it's like. My own family have been wonderful over the past few weeks - i never thought they would understand what my babies ment or mean to me.

    Thanks so much again, i'm so glad i found this website

    We're really pleased you found us too

    Thank you for sharing about your boys - it's a relief to know that you have one furry body to dry the tears, but I know that Ozo, Mondo and Buster are irreplacable. You can't replace them, but sometimes another dog helps fill the hole...

    It's good that you have found the strength to complete an adoption form, but it sounds like maybe you're not quite ready yet.

    Maybe doing fostering might help - you could see if you are ready to have another dog?

    So sorry for your loss Karen. I can only imagine how devastating that must be. I'm glad you took some time to write out your memories. I'm hoping that helps you to heal. I loved reading about them. They sounded like real characters. I think Nicki has some really sage advice. Don't let anyone dismiss your feelings of grief....you are allowed to grieve for them, in fact, it's healthy and healing.

    Sending you a big warm hug and hoping you are feeling a bit better day by day.

    I am in agreement with all of the above. But don't feel guilty for filling in and even sending the adoption form. No dog will ever replace your babies, but I know from my own experience that it is sometimes hugely comforting to have another, different, baby to love. It doesn't mean they have been replaced. But you are used to loving and a new one satisfies that need.

    They are not better, just different. What ever your choices, they are right for you at the time. God bless you xx
