  • Dogs mourn for their companions the same way humans do, it's very normal.

    • do you know how long that will take?

    • I'm not sure. Our dogs mourned for about two weeks before they got over it, I think. It helps if they see the other dog's body or if they have things that smell like the other dog, it helps them come to terms with it, I think, whereas if you just remove everything, they're really confused and worried and they don't get what happened.

    • oehhh two weeks... well we will see. Thank you for your advice

  • Yeah it's normal, dogs are really social creatures so they can still go through mourning for the loss of a companion.

  • That's completely normal. It's mourning the loss of its friend/family member. He or she notices the other dog is gone and misses him/her.

  • Yes. It is like losing a friend or a sibling. They have to grieve too.

  • First of all sorry for your loss. My grandmothers dog who often hung out with my dog died last year. My dog would often look for him and other things so as far as I can tell yeah it's normal.

    • will it go over?

    • when one of my two dogs died the one was depressed and didn't want to eat. it took a lot on our part to help her but she finally can around

  • Don't get upset if it lasts more than a couple of weeks.
