How Do You Get Over Losing Your Dog?

The death of a beloved dog wounds us each in a uniquely terrible way. We fear the day we’ll lose them, we are shattered the moment it happens, but what comes after?

Three years after losing Eko, I finally have the perspective to appreciate all the moments his love still makes possible. There’s no getting over the pain, there’s just getting on with it – knowing the unimaginable hurt is the price we must pay for a love that will guide us for the rest of our lives.

  1. Will, your blog is helping me so much getting through the loss of my beloved Golden Molly. You so beautifully expressed things I have felt, but have not been able to articulate. You are two years ahead of me in dealing with the loss, and your words of wisdom are such a comfort. I think of you guys so much when memories of Molly consume me. Thank you so much for your wisdom and beautiful insights.
