The loss of losing my beautiful best friend 🐶

Hi, I’m sure I’m not alone when it comes to the heart break decision of letting your beloved dog pass on. When living on ur own for a long time and it’s just the two of you at the end of the day , you share many experiences, good and bad, I suffer with depression so my dog was a very precious companion and bought many smiles and much laughter. It’s been 2 and a half months since her passing and I’m at the depression stage of grieving, unbearable at times. I recently adopted a beautiful dog from the dogs trust and she needs lots of TLC bless her. I hope I am helping someone who has had a similar experience with losing their precious companion :dog:and not feel so alone with thier thoughts x
