Well it’s a good to know, his situation is improving. I can understand it’s hard to go home without Jake. All he need is to stay strong, Take Care!!

Perhaps you should read the whole post...maybe you've made the mistake of posting on the wrong thread...it happens, but Quickly's father died over a week ago now.

Hello Quickly.

I am so sorry that you are still missing Jake. Animals can be every bit as important as people in our lives, and even though I've got Boris, and love him to bits, I still sometimes miss Pink Floyd, my last cat, especially on days like this - quite warm and sunny - when she used to lie on the carpet in a patch of sun and her fur had its own beautiful scent when she got warm. Boris is completely different in character, but I love him to bits too.

Now that you've had a spell on your own I think you should consider another dog if you can manage it. You've obviously got a lot of love to share and a dog-shaped hole in your life. Perhaps adopting an adult dog rather than coping with a puppy ? Maybe it would be easier to manage day-care for an adult animal ?

A week or so after my father died, one of my cats had a heart attack right in front of me and died in the Vet's surgery. Annalee was a sassy little cat with tons of personality and when I grieved for her I grieved for my dad too. I expect your grief for Jake is a bit mixed up with the loss of your dad and it's making it all feel worse.

Lots of us on here really do understand how you feel, and are willing you to feel better soon. And I hope to hear of a new addition to your family before very long.

With much love
Mo x

Quickly, I agree with every single word Mo has written, I sobbed and sobbed when I had to put my cat Oscar down 2 years ago now, like Mo I am sure some of the tears where for Trevor. I had tried to be so brave when I lost him, but it seemed okay to cry for our beloved cat, the poor vet I still feel for him with me awash.
I have decided not to get another cat, I have my little Shih tzu Missy so she is great company, but every know and then I still hanker for another feline in my life. take care love sandrax xx

Thank you for your responses. I think the problem is it's not a dog shaped hole it's a Grumpy and Jake shaped hole. Two personalities who cannot be replaced. On a brighter note Dad's dog George is happy at my sisters with his vizla girlfriend holly. My sister even posted a picture of him running the other day not something he often produces being more of a trotter. Big smile on his face too. Dad was devoted to G who helped him after Mum died so my sister is doing a great job.
