"ABU" I miss you
We had 3 dogs already when my wife wanted a tea cup chiwawa that cost 450 dollars. I said no at first we already have three I said but I caved in and let her get him. He was so small he could fit in the palm of my hand. He grew rapidly and we soon realized that he wasn't a tea cup that we got jipped.This dog was so loving and cute and a personality that was very unique. Needless to say I fell in love with this little blue eyed fur ball. He was daddy's little buddy and loved to play fight with me and then cuddle under my neck. Im a 42 year old man with 6 children all over the age of 18. I'm a widower at 30 so I know the pain associated with unexpected death.I grieved then for a long long time. My daughter called me at work and told me boo was dead that he was hit by a car and is dead. I came home and we buried him in the yard. It was a hard thing to do. I miss him so much that I can't sleep and my stomach is upset and I'm sickened that we allowed this to happen to him. I feel we failed him. I know he was not a human but I can't stop thinking about him and am so depressed. Im the father of this family and know I should be strong for the rest of the family members but I can't. I'm actually so angry and upset I can't think of anything but my little buddy and the bond we shared.Someone have any advise for dealing with this pain?
