I've lost my dog about a week ago (was a dachshund) She was very important part of my life (she meant a lot to me) and i really cared for her and made sure she got everything to make her happy. She was like my baby. would like to know whether is it normal that i am still very affected by it? The day of her death i cried so much and my parents even offered to get me another dog i said i don't want anymore pets (even tho she was more than just a pet for me). But yea i'd like to know whether is it normal to still feel somewhat depressed and sad about her?
Even while typing this question my eyes are getting watery
For those who will say "it was just a pet" .. keep your comments to yourselves!

i Lost a cat named Castro about five years ago. his owner didn't want him and i took care of him he was old already we owned him for a few years before we had to have him euthanized i couldn't stop crying. My parents are jerks and don't like to take responsibility for anything let alone animals especially when they get old they tend to push the responsibility on someone else. i had another dog named ginger a Bassett hound she caught cancer a few years back every dog i see reminds me of her once again couldn't stop crying, I love animals and feel bad for all the times I treated one unjustly it hurts to be honest. I have had parrotkeets that died all of a sudden. my little bro accidentally stomped a kitten we had I'm still not over that and I was nine. I have had cats and dogs that we had to get rid of cause my mom was a bitch. one time we had a declawed cat an my step dad abandoned it in a park. couldn't get over that one either. and the first dog we ever owned Tara my dad used to abuse her and it was fucking sad. i even cried when my ex girlfriends dogs died they were annoying but I loved them so it's not a bad thing to get an animal after you have lost one just dont ever be afraid to love again. Animals are family and friends even if they have to eventually leave this mortal coil. I used to have a cat in NY named Dusty I'm here in Wyoming now it's been eight months and I miss that little bastard. I wanna visit him soon.1

That's absolutely normal! I'm so sorry for your loss. :( Losing a pet is very hard because for many of us, they are more than just pets, they are part of your family. One of my dogs passed away over a year ago and I still feel sad when I think about her. I cried for days after it happened.
Pets bring great joy to our lives so it's understandable for anyone to be upset and grieve when they lose their pet. It will get easier as time goes on and maybe one day you will feel like it's time to get another pet. That doesn't mean you are replacing her, it just means you have enough room in your heart to give love to more animals who may need you which is a great thing! I know it sucks right now but you will get through it, I promise. ❤️1
