Ginger's picture is now my screen saver

Today is the first day since Ginger died that I have seen a picture of her. DH was trying to be sweet and he put a picture of her on my computer as my screen saver. I appreciate the love he put into it but I am not sure if seeing her picture isn't making things worse. All I do now is look at her picture and sob. I know many of you have lost beloved four legged family members. Did you find it difficult to look at their pictures?
On a positive note we baby sat my daughter's two year old miniature schnauzer Pixy this weekend. Pixy never left my side and was even trying to lick away my tears. I am glad she was over.

I am so sorry about your Ginger, I know how hard it is!

We had to put our dog to sleep last September, he was 14 and his back legs went so he could no longer walk. It was honestly one of the hardest moments of my life and I cried for days after. Everyone who said sorry or asked me how he was would make me burst into tears.

I can still look at his picture and get tears in my eyes because I miss him but I also enjoy looking at his pictures because it reminds me of the great life he had and how much he was loved. When I see his pictures I always think of a funny moment I had with him like how when he was a pup he got up on the table when my mother called us for dinner and ate a whole roast!

I am sorry for your loss.

It was a sweet thing that your husband tried to do but I am also one that cant look at the photos for a long time after a pet passes. When my childhood doxies died I boxed up all my doxie stuff, including their pictures. I go through it every so often and still cry, it has been 12 years. Misting up now actually. It took my parents 6 years before they were ready to even get another dog. But they loved seeing my Chis, they just werent ready to jump back into ownership.

Everyone handles it differently, hopefully you and your husband can find a middle ground that allow you both to grieve in a way that is appropriate for each of you.

When I was 18 my 1st real dog I remember died. She always layed in the drive way in the sun. I was leaving for work and saw her laying behind my brothers car, I ran in to tell him to let her in if he leaves cause she was behind his car. My dad called me at work to tell me he ran over her and she was dead. I cried for days! She was 14 went every where with me for years. I had to take a couple days off work I was so upset. I don't know how long it took till I looked at a picture but I know how hard it is.Just remember the good times and everyday will get easier.

Thank you all for the posts. Still finding it difficult to believe that my Ginger
is really gone. Sometimes it feels like a bad dream that I know I will wake up
from. It is getting a little easier. At least now I can start to remember some of the
good times. I found a site on the internet that helps. If any one still mourns for their
four legged baby this is the site to go on. Pet Loss Grief Support, The Rainbow Bridge Poem, Monday Candle Ceremony
hope it helps someone.
