Actually, get here a new puppy, it is solid solution for situations like u have, no joke.
Tell her, "We are all gonna die one day"
if you have the money, get her a new one. Its the least you can do.
how stupid people are who answer ’ just get her a new puppy ’
Just be compassionate and say you are more than happy to talk and listen to her. Honestly I’m not sure why she is so upset about it or how long she will be depressed for, but at the end of the day she hasn’t really lost much.
how do you cheer people up? go do something fun together.
Only time will help her, nothing else.
I lost 2 dogs and 1 cat in the last 20 years and it always hurts.
After a few weeks you're over it, but it feels weird and empty in your home.
I always had half a year break and got new pet.
Do not bury the corpse, use it to make some delicious bbq. Your gf will have a great time and meal
Thats really sad and always hurts. Most of people says they will never have dog again but with time you understand that u gave him love, and dog was happy with you and there is no your fault u just cant escape that it comes to everyone not only dogs. I think it will be easier for her also if u gift her same breed puppy or try to help and take dog from shelters.
Tell her that every animal dies at some point. Some sooner, others later. It's inevitable. We will all die in the end.
You can't really, my dog died of cancer last year and it was heartbreaking man after 10 years toghether. The best advice I can give you it's to not say absolutely retarded phrases like a lot of people say "just get another one" "It's just a dog It will pass soon". Be supportive, ask her often how is she doing/feeling and that's about it. It's a matter of letting time pass through, the first two weeks are the rough ones where you still imagine them being in the house. A good advice is to throw everything the dog had and just keep one thing as a memory.
Just wait 2 months and buy her another doggo
Give her time. It hurts when your darling die. My lovely dog died at 28.5.2019 and it still hurts...
just be there for her. nothing else u can do.
I'd acknowledge what she's going through and reassure her that her dog lived a life full of love and endearment by being part of their family. Maybe focus on celebrating his life instead of mourning his death?
Nice framed pic of the dog and her if you have one
Do something nice for her like a bit of wellness... Bathtub, massage... Take her out, so she gets her mind free.
If it's happened right now and the dogs still there, make a grave in the backyard. Else, if dog is gone, build something like a place to remember it... Some stones in the garden, a cross,flowers and its necklace or something. You can make some kind of funeral with your gf, so she can say some words to say goodbye and you also say some kind words about it.
Clear up the riddle of "who's a good boy" by telling the dog that it was meant all the time.
Lots of bullshit in this thread. "My condolences, if you need to talk, let me know" and leave her alone. It's not your mission to "make her feel better". She will grief how long she needs to, and that's it. My experience is that pets are forgotten faster than you can think. Don't do X Y Z for her as suggested in this thread.
Make her a compilation of memorable moments with the dog and add some funny/stupid things the dog did so you can hopefully make her laugh. Good luck man
Either get a collage of her dog or get her a new puppy
just let her mourn, give her space... you dont have to be personally involved in everything, especially not things you dont have any relationship with. But just say your there if she wants to talk or take her mind of it
Don't say anything. Just let her overcome grief with time and then find a new dog of the same breed.
