    Default She'll Be Alone Now

    My 10 month old staffy x rotti has always been with another dog but looks like that is soon to change. How will she go on her own? She will sometimes be at the back door jumping up to get attention with another dog with her, I am presuming this will get worse? Are there any suggestions on what I could do?

    I have had dogs for 30 years and after an initial fretting occasionally mine have been fine. Don't project human feelings onto a dog.
    Just watch a while to see if she is ok.

    Given the age, I don't think it will be much of a problem..She may fret for a short while, but age is on her side..

    Thanks guys, that's very reassuring, I keep forgetting that animals work different to humans... really appreciate both of your comments Di and mitte.

    I thought my reply sounded snitty. I meant to write don't make the mistake of projecting human emotions.....

    Dogs live in the now but yes, some can grieve the loss of company but most move on very well.

    Not snitty at all! Totally agree with you but always forget the dogs think so different to us

    Is it wise to show the remaining dog the dog once it has been put down so she knows it has died?

    I would never do that, though I am no dog phychologist or anything but I think that would either do more harm then good or just be plain unessesary.
