I've just opened it in another tab while I reply to all the comments. I'll have a look at it in a few minutes and thanks for the site and the kind
It really helped me to understand I wasn't to blame for what happened. I went through the grief stages, mostly guilt. Why didn't I catch her illness
sooner? Why did I listen to my vet and wait to take her in when my gut told me she needed to get help NOW? (I ended up taking her to the Emergency
Vet in the very early morning)
I was upset that I wasn't with her when she passed away. Oh, and the anger at myself for not having enough money to pay for all the expensive tests
they did on her (I had to borrow from family). I then went through a paranoid stage. Maybe they thought I was a bad pet mom and she's really alive
but they're hiding her from me. I was going crazy!!
This website showed me that what I was going through was normal. And that pet owners go through the same grief stages that people who lose family
members go through (not taking away from family members: I lost both of my parents so I know how that feels, too) Losing a pet doesn't make it any
Your Playboy was very lucky to have such a caring, wonderful person to be at his side in his last moments. My thoughts are with you.
