no need to thank me, that's why we are here, not only for fun, love of the breed and education, but also for those times that you feel that no one else would understand but a crazy pug person. i know the pain you are going thru, although my heart was broken because of a beloved lab, casey. she was my girl for almost 14 years...constantly by my side, helping me with my daughters and teaching them unconditional love and compassion. she was the dog that everyone wanted, even those that didn't really like dogs. we had to make that hard decision to let her go and it was the hardest thing i ever had to do. we mourned like she was a human family member. i have had dogs all my life growing up but she just had a special place in our hearts...even my husband took it hard. the house just was so empty without her...as my daughters said, it didn't feel like a home. that is when we got our first pug rosie. it took me 5 days to find her. i just couldn't live without the companionship of a dog. she wasn't like a dog, she was the first pug i ever owned and she was our little pug angel, chasing the blues away. we didn't get her to replace casey, no dog could, we got her as a tribute to the love we had for casey to pass that love forward, as they say. when you are ready, maybe you might consider getting another pug...maybe a rescue that needs you as much as you need them...pass it forward. charlie will always live in your heart, no one can take that from you, but passing that love to another is not a betrayal...it's a tribute. take care, let yourself grieve and know it will get better with time. you will think of him and smile...pugs do that to us.
I just want to let you know that my heart goes out to you for your loss and I understand completely how you feel. We've had to endure the loss 2 of these little gifts from God. I hope that someday you consider getting another one. I bought Phoebe about a month or so after we lost our first Pug Sadie. Not to replace her mind you, you can never replace something you've bonded with, I bought her to fill the void in my life that Sadie left behind and I thank God every day that i did because she's such a joy to be with and I love her as much as she loves me..
