    I want to comment on this a little bit. You know...if you are grieving for Terry that much right now...this is not a good time to get another dog. Your head needs to be in the right place for a new dog...just IMO anyways........

    Mum saying that is what triggered the grief I had bottled up and put solely into getting another pet.

    I know what I'm doing and what is best for me.

    Mandy, that's great! So many Inka's around here now! You must be so excited babe! I am excited for you!

    That's fine, but how can you say in one thread you can't even think about getting another dog and then post this...it doesn't make any sense Dis

    I posted this first Clea. Then hours later I had a breakdown over Terry.I've already stated what happened. How I grieve doesn't have to make sense to you. Everyone grieves differently.

    lol, everytime I see Sumo & Ruby looking at me from your siggy Clea I melt!! They get me every time.

    The grief process is a ba*tard! OH and I have been to visit Henry's sister twice now (even took her food down last week)! and although we want to welcome her into our fold, the time is still not right for us. So we pack our cut lunch and drive a couple of hours to visit her weekly. One day we can say OK lets start planning and the next day it's so not ready. So we wait, we visit and we assume that at some point we will know when the time is 100% right. 50% or 99% is not the right time, as that roller coaster ride is not fair on Rana (who I think we will probably rename to Dakota) or for us. Like Dis, we will work through the process and like Dis, we have the support of the current carer of Rana/Dakota, no matter how long it takes. Slowly, slowly we work through our grief and one day to come we will know where to place that grief and acceptance of this miserable time.

    You always post things so eloquently Mandy darling. I didn't realize how much I actually missed him until mum suggested another dog. It was just like my brain went wow: he's really gone.

    Don't take what Clea is saying personally DGP!!! She is trying to understand your thought process, one which she is also living atm given her recent loss. 1 step forward and 2 steps backward. I know my emotions are still all over the shop about my recent loss, as are yours as are Clea's, I imagine the same with Judge and today my Glenn joins our "club". Be gentle, be kind, be self-supporting and try to accept that others, especially others who are living their own version of what you are, are just trying to give you the "other" side to think about. Lord knows I flip flop all over the place atm. Yes ready, no not ready, yes ready, no not ready. Everything will be right when the time is right. And the first step in moving forward is to accept what's done is done, THEN you have to be ready to take the next step and there is often a time period between these two. Take a breath and be relieved that you have taken that first step toward moving forward. The next step will come when it is ready to do so!

    I wasn't taking it personally at all Shar. As someone (I think it might have been you!) said, the written word can come across very differently to the spoken one. Water under the bridge was perhaps making me sound a tad tight.
    I just think that everyone grieves differently, and there really isn't a way to explain how or why that is so. Maybe doctors can, but to me it's just about the individual.

    At the moment I can't even begin to think about considering the possibility of another dog in my life. But as you said, the time will come.
