It is inevitable when you take in the old and sick I suppose... I lost 6 rescue dogs in the last 7 years. My tripaw never really got over my husband's death 2 years ago and I had to let him go last summer and knew that his best friend would probably not survive the next winter. Sadly I was right and had to have him pts last week. :(

Which leaves me now with another oldie who is likely the next to go and a young hooligan who really is going to struggle with being an only dog. He turned out to be much younger than we had been told when we adopted him but we couldn't hold that against him so he stayed. I hope that when the time comes he will adjust (luckily I work from home so hardly ever have to leave him), otherwise I might have to adopt again which I don't really want to do.

I’m so sorry for your loss, Cami.

With the younger dog, he may adjust; only time will tell. I used to have a very high-strung, sensitive cat. When we moved (twice) during his life, I was always so worried that he would hate it and have a hard time adjusting, but nope. Both times he settled right in very quickly. Your dog may surprise you and end up being OK with being on his own.

Again, I’m sorry to hear that you lost your older dog. Thank you for giving a home to so many creatures for their golden years.

Very sorry to hear, Cami. You're a special kind of person, taking in the ones most in need, knowing you're going to go through the difficulty of letting them go more often than most of us.

Dogs are one of the most adaptable things alive. They're made for it, I believe. I'm betting your rowdy pup will be ok, after a period of adjustment.

Thank You All.

I just can't believe this is happening: I lost my old girl on Wednesday!
It happened so quick! :cry:

So this is me now left with the young dog and we are both in bits.
I am sooo done with this shit show.... in the space of little over 2 years: husband and 3 dogs gone. :cry:

Cami, I’m so sorry that this has happened to you. So many losses in such a short time must be so difficult.

Hold tight to your remaining dog. Give yourself time to grieve.

Again, I’m so sorry to hear about this.
