I'm so sorry! I know how it is to lose a beloved dog, but my "heart dog" is still with me and I was just thinking yesterday of how impossible it would be to lose him! I am sorry for your broken heart.
If I can offer a suggestion... Go ahead and grieve at this time. And then move on. For the benefit of your other dog. Be a strong presence in his life so he can take a cue from you and know that you are strong and will take care of him.
RIP Chako, you beautiful boy!

I'm am so sorry for your loss.
You know, myself, I always wonder, why do we put ourselves through it? If we are lucky, we have them in our lives 10 years. We know what is going to happen. We know how bad it's going to hurt.
Then you fall in love again. And the pain lessens, until only happy memories remain.
And having had 4 dogs put down, peacefully, at home, in my arms, I would never want to do it any other way. No matter how many months I cry afterward.
You obviously gave him a loving, fulfilling life. Be proud of that. I would also say to remember to be thankful you had him, but it's pretty clear you know that already.
