Okay, I decided to write something about this finally.
My dog past away 2 days before Christmas. We had her put down.
My whole family was crying when we drove to the vets besides me. I was holding her
not even dropping a tear. Is there something wrong with me?
She was a lab, shih tzu, & a chow mixed. We had since she was around 4 years old &
died when she was 14 years, so we had her for 10 years.
We grown attached to her, but why didn't I cry? I mean, yeah, I have another dog but
she was my favorite out of the two, always going to the beach with me, playing fetch
& tug-a-war & things like that. She wasn't lazy at all, & acted like a puppy most of
the time.
I always brought her along with me, but for some reason I didn't cry at all.

not everyone handles grief the same way. dont feel like you need to
feel a certain way or have a particular display or cry. maybe someday
when youre busy doing something you will be reminded by something
about yoru dog and shed a tear and maybe you wont. 

what matters is that while the animal was alive you loved it and
treated it with care not how you feel about it after its death. Its
clear that its sad and something that you wish hadnt happened. But
such is life. Coping with the death of our loved ones is one of the
hardest things we have to do in life.

Just honor your dog's memory by calling it to mind now and then. That
is all you need to do.

I hope 2010 is better for you.
