Welcome! I'm sorry for your loss - just about everyone on the forum will know how terrible you feel. And, yes, another dog does help! Let us know how it goes with the 8-year-old you are thinking of adopting.

Hi and welcome! Don't feel bad for your lowsy days - you are allowed a few years of them after you loose a pet Wink. Indeed we all know how it feels.

Hi Chrissy, so sorry it is never easy and I know the roller coaster ride emotionally we can take with these beloved old dogs. It is soul destroying.

"But she surprised me by struggling against the initial sedation. I still feel terrible and guilty. Maybe I should have waited longer and had more time together."

I'm so sorry that you lost your best friend.  Please don't feel guilty.  When a dog is stressed they will act more energetic and even happy.  Last November I was certain my German Shepherd was dying. I had to have my son help me roll him onto a blanket and we struggled to get him out the door and into my van.  My vet had told me to go to the emergency vet and when I got him there they managed to get him up and walking, it was because he wanted OUT, he wanted to go home.  Once I got him back in the car he was back to my dying dog.  I got him home and there was no way I was getting him out of the car.  I called my vet and told her I was bringing him in.  

I usually get through my day nicely until the evening, after dinner, and then I miss him so much that I feel like my heart will break.

Another dog will help.  My Tasha and Mattie have been a great comfort to me.  I think people that love dogs have a little space in their heart that is reserved for loving a dog and when there isn't a dog that space is so empty.

Sorry for the sad story.  Welcome and I hope you find another dog to love soon.
