Loss of my fur-baby

I'm having some trouble finding time to properly grieve over the loss of my 14 y/o Husky that I had to have put to sleep last Tuesday. I raised her from a 10 week old pup and have been through a lot with that dog. It's been very difficult for me to watch her health decline, and heartbreaking to have to make the decision to put her to sleep; but it put an end to her suffering. My husband and his two kids were not that attached to her, having only been in the picture the last couple years, and couldn't enjoy her because of her decline.

I've been busy with baseball schedules, kids getting out of school for the summer, and so much else that I just feel overwhelmed and need time to cry and recover. But there doesn't seem to be any time. I really can't even hardly think straight, and don't know what to do to help myself. I feel selfish for wanting to take a little time away from the kids and hubby, but I can't keep trudging along trying to bury my pain. What to do? What to do?

Awe Raye, I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard losing our beloved pets. Your husky lived a very long life, and clearly you were taking care of her for her to live such a long life.

You HAVE to take some time to yourself to grieve. Even if it is just a couple of hours leaving the home. Your family will support that, regardless of how attached they were to her. They love you, and they understand how much you loved her and need to grieve. Take solace in the fact that she is no longer suffering and is at peace. Your heart is going to grieve no matter if you give it time or not.
