Top Ten Worst Things About Losing A Pet
The heartbreak is the worst. The pain... The numbness... The looking around expecting them to be there. Awful feeling. Pets become much-cherished members of the family. When they're suddenly not there anymore, there is a void, a pet-shaped hole that can't be filled.
So sorry for you, PositronWildhawk, my friend.
My friends dog ran out the house the other day and was hit by a car. Him and his family were so frazzled and he had to try study for his English exam for the next day. Felt so sorry for him
It destroys a world for you. You've lost a much loved companion.
RIP my 2 rats and my chinchilla
You can't fully get used to it. There's always something missing after this.
I lost my dog in May this year and I still didn't get over it. My poor baby :(
Losing a pet is a heartbreaking moment. It's like losing a child or a sibling. It takes time to feel better again. But PositronWildhawk, you shouldn't feel pessimistic about your pet's death. I'm sure you did the best you could to provide him/her with a good life and that's what it counts after all. Your pet was happily clingy to you and was glad to receive your love and affections. Nothing really can't erase these moments. They left something positive in you that even the mystery of death cannot erase. Sometimes you may think that all are doomed to be forgotten forever, but they always come back to you...sometimes in different ways. Hold on to your other furry friends. You need time to feel less heartbroken.
Always sad to watch them wait and look around.
Dear anonymous, I should have said this a month ago, but thanks. That was very uplifting.
Keep thinking my dog's under my bed or out the back.
That is so true. Cats & dogs all have their own distinct personalities, just like people do. When our pet goes, you are missing a member of your own family.
Every living thing has its own personality. When a unique one is out of your life, you know you won't be the same.
You never expect it. When you get it, it is horrible.
Really sad if a predator(cougar or coyote) ate it!
When a companion is gone, what do you expect?
It's just so bad that you can't explain it to them.
Nobody sees it coming, but sometimes, once it happens, it feels just like it should have been obvious.
A unique companion is gone. It's irreplacable.
This is all the way down at the bottom?
#11 is ridiculous. A dead pet's ghost wouldn't come back to haunt you. This should be higher than that silly "ghost" item.
What the heck? My dog died and I took such good care of her. She only died because she was so old... She would never haunt me because she went to doggy heaven. I'm crying just writing this...
This wouldn't happen. Deserves to be at the bottom. I'm glad it is.
