Actually, get here a new puppy, it is solid solution for situations like u have, no joke.
2019-07-12 09:55
-1 if you actually loved your pet you need some time to get over it, you don't just replace it with next one next day. This is dumb. When my cat died I was angry at people that just said: "oh just get a new one." It is part of the family, not some piece of clothing you go in store and just buy new one.

this is why u always want to get a new pup when ur doggo is getting old we've had this tradition since i was a child... our doggos always have a connection of our past family doggo
2019-07-12 11:51
That's actually smart and it makes it at least a bit easier on the owner. It took me 2 years to get new cat and I still remember old one and get teary eyed sometimes, thinking about him. Can't even imagine with dogs that are with you sometimes for 20+ years
2019-07-12 14:52
Cats live way longer than dogs and I've never heard of any dog ever living more than 20 years

lol it's illegal in Czech Republic, unless you have a big ass garden, since it has to be at least 100 m away from any building, 200 m from any water source, at least 50 cm under the ground for animals under 100 kg, the animal has to be wrapped in non toxic cover that is naturally degradable and the grave must be marked for at least 10 years.

how stupid people are who answer ’ just get her a new puppy ’
2019-07-12 10:07
you are stupid, if she is a dog person, a new dog will do the trick. My dog died in 2017, and to get over it and got a new dog in 2018, couldn't be happier

lmao thats stupid you cant just replace ur old dog with new one and feel fine
2019-07-12 10:10
I replaced my dog with a cat and have never felt better 😊
2019-07-12 10:12
you are not replacing shit, my dog lived his life, he had 17 years when he died. Geting a new dog and go over the process of bonding and educating her, made me and my new dog happy, you can't stop living life. I can't take people serious, that restrain themselvs from living life cause of the "you can't replace" logic

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.

I think you are being overly sentimental, judging by your other responses. Get over it, people have lost more. Why buy a being with a short lifespan, emotionally commit to it and then cry and expect sympathy?
2019-07-12 10:26
You have no clue how it is to have animal and love it as your family member, especially when you had it 10+ years. I wish you would have developed that emotional bond, but as it looks, you are incapable of. I actually feel sorry for you.

Turkey mustim 
Yeah, because I’m not stupid enough to give myself more reasons to get depressed over nothing. I bet you do feel sorry for me, I expect that from someone who has the logic and rationale of a dog.
2019-07-12 10:32
I am not going to comment further. Why make yourself depressed over death of your mother then. Or of your father. Why love in life? Why feel compassion? Just be a fucking robot. Peanut monkey

Because she’s my mother, and not a dog I bought for $50 bucks. That’s vegan logic right there, dog=human.
2019-07-12 10:35
Yea, maybe that's the thing. You bought it so now it is immediately lower grade. What else to expect from Turkey, India, and China. Then you question why people see you as the scum of life that has no value of life whatsoever. Miss me with your degenerate shit, I don't even want to talk to you anymore.

Hahaha. It’s ironic that you feel superior due to your empathy, and then you proceed to berate and insult entire countries. You’ve shown your true colours you filth.

I thought you said you weren’t going to talk anymore? Precisely my point, I don’t see the logic in allocating value on something that isn’t human or familiar. You do, and yet you find it ok to call people scumbags and reduce groups of people to a stereotype. How about you sod off, this was my comment. Your input wasn’t desired. I’m willing to bet that is true with your birth as well.

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.

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.
2019-07-12 12:31
Tell her that every animal dies at some point. Some sooner, others later. It's inevitable. We will all die in the end.
2019-07-12 12:22
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
2019-07-12 12:38
Give her time. It hurts when your darling die. My lovely dog died at 28.5.2019 and it still hurts...
2019-07-12 13:27
just be there for her. nothing else u can do.
2019-07-12 13:29
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?
2019-07-12 13:35
Nice framed pic of the dog and her if you have one
2019-07-12 13:36
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.
2019-07-12 13:45
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
2019-07-12 17:53
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
2019-07-12 17:58
Don't say anything. Just let her overcome grief with time and then find a new dog of the same breed.
