On May 15th 2013 I lost my dog Angel. Angel was the inspiration for PitBullLovers.com.

Angel was without a doubt the best dog I’ve ever had the pleasure of having in my life. Losing her was devastating. I have spent the last few months thinking if I will ever get another Pit Bull Terrier. I will be getting another dog eventually and that’s what inspired this post.

Many times folks seem to bring in another dog quickly. Most of the time this can lead to issues. Projecting your late dogs behaviors and personality on the new dog in the house. Moving on to another dog is tough. Moving past the hurt, loss, and emptiness can be hard as well. While to some it may be corny talking about your issues with a close friend or loved on can go a long way to figuring out how to deal with the grief.

I found this pretty cool website that has a lot of information about dealing with the loss of your pet. You can check out the link here: http://www.helpguide.org/mental/grieving_pets.htm

Losing Angel hit me a lot harder than I thought it would. I thought I had prepared my heart for the day it was going to happen. I thought wrong. Dealing with grief is a serious business. People will say things like “it’s just a dog. Why are you so upset?” Those folks don’t get it. If you let those people get to you it can stall the process of getting over your grief. Learn to deal with it and face it. As I said before seek out a close friend or a family member. Talk out with them. It helps.
