Man lost both dogs within three weeks. Now he's having the best birthday ever!
|About||1 week ago|
iz that a mini polar bear?!
That looks weird. But I'm glad it has healthy nostrils!
the power of dog compels you!
Thought it'd be a cat seeing g as he loses his dogs so easy
That lil poodle picture on the wall...
YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP! YAP!
Are rebound pets a thing?
I'm not crying, you're crying!
I would need some time if I lost both my cats. That'd be a big hole to fill and a new kitten alone wouldn't handle it.
Its been 2 years since I had to put my dog down and I'm just now at the point where I can think about him without getting emotional.
The picture on the wall makes me sad. I'm happy he has a furry friend again. Nothing compares to it.
Picture in background + OP's name = Perfect post..... Or least really consistent post
I’m lying awake at 1am sad about my cat who died yesterday. This would be a perfect moment to get off imgur.
I have three and a house without them would be too painful and quiet. Id rescue within 6 mo. Each person is different and mourns diffeeentl
Is this how John Wick 3 starts..?
Damn onion ninjas
Sorry to hear about your kitty. My sympathies.
Get 2 kittens
Just like his pillow said
This is so goddamned adorable
Damn that is a ruff first day at work for the pupper
The picture of the dog on the wall...
The people who downvoted this are dildos
My kitty died 3 weeks ago so I extend my sympathies to you.
Sometimes people adopt a kitty when their cat is getting old as it may not be easy to deal with an empty house after the older's death
That pup is going to be well-loved.
It's not to replace the passed pet. It's a conduit for you to pour that love into something else. It's a symbiotic relationship for healing.
Damn. He looks tough as fuck, he must've loved those dogs.
That's not the best day, that's a sad happy day
I lost my cat and my boyfriend brought home a cat the next week it hurt so much. I was in no way ready for a new pet it hurt so much
Yes always 2
Notice the picture on the wall behind him...
It helps some people
Agree. I'm at 1 year and can almost talk about him without crying
“Good Things Are Going To Happen”
I think the best way to have pets is get another about halfway through the first life.
Maybe just me, but I feel like a mourning period should be observed...
Wow I am crying like a baby.
New pupper is so gentle! Sweet baby.
Depends on the person and the circumstances, I think. We've a rebound doggo, and he's a perfect boy
Legend has it, that dog is still being held to this day 6 months later
Literally made me cry... :(
So they found one?
Who THE FUCK downvotes this
That sucks mate, good luck
I grew up with dogs and yet never understood why my mom was so upset when they passed. Then i got one of my own as an adult. She is my life
Man, there has been a lot of real tear jerkers on imgir in the past few days. This. The cop saving the infant. The parade for the 21 yo...
When my cat died I went out the next week and adopted two kittens. Having them made all the difference.
My old roommate got the same dog and named it the same thing, boy or girl. When I met her, they were on Fang IV...
I honestly thought someone turned the dead dogs into those pillows and that was why he was crying.
my sister's cat died a couple weeks ago and she wants a puppy now cuz she's been having trouble falling asleep alone
Damn this made me tear up more than the video of the little girl getting a puppy.
It definitely makes you feel better. Ive lost 3 in my life. When the last one passed a new cat helped me get through it.
The fact there’s a framed photo of a dog on the wall... I think this guy loves his dogs...
Life is a series of dogs. - George Carlin
Six years ago
That fluffy is gonna be SOOOOOOOO spoiled! good for you.
everyone heals differently. i know in my experience when i lost my last dog my current wasnt a replacement, just a pup to love and nurture -
was way too lonely without a dog after 15 years of having my boy. my current could never replace, only gets a new spot in my heart
This looks like it could be an SCP.
We did that, now I'm feeling like my elder cat is going to go for another 10 years and outlive the younger.
This kinda shit makes me cry every god damn time.
Poor puppy is gonna have tears on his fur hope the man grows to love him
I watched a whole YouTube video of older people getting pets and I cried through the entire thing.
I would need a couple weeks, then I’d be ready to fill the hole.
If one of my doggies passed I feel like I would have to get my surviving dog a friend quickly (6 months ish) or they would be too lonely.
It's more of something to help deal with it and a puppy takes up alot of time and no one can be sad holding a puppy
That is a man who knows he's going feel heartbroken again in 15 years.
Make me think of the movie ‘ a dogs purpose’ when Bailey finally come back
I love the fact that that pupper doesn't exactly know why he/she is needed, but does understand that he/she is needed
Same thing happened to my family. Both our girls died a week apart, i'd never seen my dad so upset even when family died. He drove 3 states
Over 3 weeks later to pick up a new Springer puppy because he couldn't stand how quiet the house was.
Dosent say if its 20 years since he lost his dogs though.
The doggos probably couldn't handle the 840hp.
I'm not crying, you're crying.
Nah, it's definately part and parcel of the disposable mindset...
Thanks for making me cry at the dinner table.
I put my puppy down last August. Still can't even think about getting a new companion. I hope this guy and his new pup will work out ok
Oh god, at first I thought they had them stuffed as the pillows...
Looking at the title and thumbnail, I assumed those fluffy pillows were made from his late puppers. How wrong I was.
It's a way to cope. Animals can be awesome.
I just love the gentleness this man shows.
They are soo much harder than a kitty though.
lost it when he said, " hi baby boy"
This is... emotional porn, I think. And boy, do people buy into this!
I see it as more of a healing process, another animal to put all your extra love and affection into
I'm not crying, you're crying
Those were tears of happiness. That pup is well loved and appreciated.
Yes they are. We did this for my mother. It does help to ease the pain.
Did he turn the deceased dogs into a set of throw pillows? Or what are those made of..?
Yes. But unlike a normal rebound, they usually help heal your grief and make themselves comfy in your heart. And they're adorable.
Well, now that dog is gonna die.
It's almost like you fell off a cliff as you wrote this lol
I do that with chicken nuggets.
It's ok, I'll save theeeel
I lovingly dip them into those sweet, sweet sauces. Sensationally.
Then put them up my ass.
This is very sweet, but results vary. When my rabbit died coworkers who knew nothing of rabbits got me 2 sick rabbits. Died within the week.
This is beautiful. He will love that dog endlessly just as the dog will love him.
And I really wasn’t ready for more.
He should put a bell on this one so he doesn't lose it. Maybe a GPS tracker
"You trying to replace me you uppity ape? Heh. I'll show you, ya damned presumptuous bastid!" - cat, probably
Some people do deserve dogs
Naw, once a dog fills that emptiness in your heart, they’re there forever.
Maybe that’s just me . But I will need time to grieve when my dogs go.
There's nothing quite like seeing a smol pupper make a grown man cry.
Well I'll be god damned....well put
Dogs are incredibly special animals.
My family had a pug, wasn't even 1yr old. Ran into street and was hit by a car and killed. We only got over it bc we received a friend's pug
I dunno. I’m uncomfortable with something that raw and personal shares this way. It’s neat, still
My god people are vaginas, seriously man the fuck up.
Dude...there are some things I would have no idea how to explain...and you nailed this one. It's not about forgetting what you lost
I get that you miss your pet, but the vide
Thank you for this.. I fear every day how I'll react when my two pass on. This was just so calming and reassuring for some reason.
Oh fuck it happened again someone help theeeeeel
This. My mother has done this my entire life. I've never been without a pet.
On Mad Men one of the young women wanted to move in with her boyfriend and told her mom it was because she was lonely. Her mom said, "If /1
Yo that's raw emotion right there and it's beautiful
I get that he misses his pets but his reactions in the video are a little over the top. Come on guy, you're embarrassing yourself.
People shouldn't get rebound pets if the person didn't ask for them.
Would not want to get in any heavy shit with that guy... unless he can cry or pet his way out of it
The sauce caused much blubbery.....
you're lonely, get a cat. When it dies, get another. When it dies, you're done." I don't know why it's stuck with me. I guess thinking of /2
Yes, I have had and lost pets. Yes I mourned them, but come on.
We don’t deserve the effortless companionship and joy of pets. I wish my cat would outlive me so I didn’t have to deal with her death.
the lonely life people were expected to lead if they didn't get married. It sort of just sums up that whole way of life for me. Also, /3
He's crying because he knows how this will end. And how many amazing memories he's about to have with this soon to be boofer until then.
Purchased a new one 4 weeks later. Yes.
imagine getting that last cat. It would feel like you're admitting you're done. So sad. /4
100000% would not want a dog after that. Source: me. Do not want another dog for a long time.
I felt like I needed time when my rats died. They were with me through a hard time, I didn’t want more cos I felt like there 1/2
God bless you whoever gave him that puppy, cause he happy now!
You said big hole to fill :)
THIS! You need time to mourn, but when you lose one companion, you just don't feel whole without one.
They're all jumping again aren't they?
was nothing that could ‘replace’ them. Three years later I have more, wish I have done it sooner, there was a void that needed to be filled.
Your dog wouldn’t want you to be sad they’re gone. New puppy. New beginning. New story. Doesn’t mean you forgot the one before.
Depends on the person. I know a few people who’ve gotten new pets within a month or so of losing their old ones.
"U got any games on your phone"
My eldest of 14yrs passed and a week later I found and took in two feral kittens. Nothing about what happened involved your bad viewpoint.
I bet that's the best birthday present the dogfucker ever got. Feeling sad for the little guy :(
Maybe get a leash for this one and stop losing dogs!
Men that get emotional at the right times are the best men!
No, I don't want to eyes. Stop releasing water........damn
I lost my two old lady cats (22 and 23 y/o) and adopted within two weeks of their passing. It makes a difference for everyone involved!
Walking naked outside is embarrassing, doing it at home isn't, unless someone films you doing it and puts it on the internet.
I think the pupper will understand and love their human a lot.
I lost two of my pups in eight days. One was 14 and it was coming; the other was 6. I almost had a breakdown. So happy for him <3
I just wish that if they were going to do that, they get an older dog.
Some men are sensitive, and do cry. I can relate to to this guy.
My mother got a new golden the week I moved out, I suppose she needed a rebound son
Aww I didn't even notice the picture! So sweet! That pup is going to be so loved!
Always with the onions
So sorry for the loss of your baby. Big hugs <3
Any dog under 50 pounds is a cat.
No they are dick heads
I also have a furry friend. He's a gay man, tho
My family got our current dog 3 days after the last one passed suddenly (at age 1.5, that was part of it)
Definitely. Not replacement of the pet, but more of a way to channel your energy into something positive.
Got me this time, Roode.
I met a furry friend outside my house that left the next day. But man that one day she was here it like melted my depression from my body.
"Hey, did your life SHATTER quickly as two animals you nearly considered died in one month? Here, have another one to say goodbye to!"
Don't film a grown man crying, come on... Bc now I'm going too
*nearly considered family. I accidentally a word.
+1 seems very sincere
mom has a terrier who has a lot of health problems that cant be fixed, we just adopted dog3 to help when terrier goes, to give an outlet to.
Yes and no. You get used to that little (or big) life being there and when they're gone things feel empty for many reasons. Yes, you miss >
maybe it's just me, but this seems uncaring. I have always needed time to grieve over a pet before getting a new one. pets aren't a 1/2
Getting another pet as soon as possible helps IMMENSELY. I've waited months to get another, and not very long another time, HUGE difference.
phone. you don't just get a new one. it seems like some people are more attached to the idea of a pet than their actual pets
We have more love to give and there's enough animals that need good homes, why not?
> the friend themselves, but also the noise and life they bring to the house.
That video fucked me up
That's a man who knows a dog's worth
This comment simply makes me smile. Thank you. :)
It also looks professionally done. He really loved his dogs.
big tough as fuck sweet daddy dude loves his tiny floofies. yes he does!
Is he a furry or a bear? Serious question.
Didn’t he also just lose that election in New Jersey?
Shut up you.
I lost my cat of 8 years, got another one 6 months later. I still accidentally call her by the previous cat's name.
Is this guy on some kind of medication because this is a lot of tears for a 40-50ish blue collar dad. I’m asking sincerely.
Dammit why are men's tears so infectious
I think that it would honor the pets memory to love another and give another pup a good life and home, but I cry thinking about losing mine
Looks just like the new pupper! Intentionally, I’m sure.
Exactly. I wouldn't have recovered well when my cat passed if I hadn't had my chihuahua to hold on to.
But that’s not going to happen for like 50 years.... right???
Holy shit. I'm actually tearing up. I never tear up!
Play...play it in reverse.
Im not crying... you’re crying
I thought it might be a maltese.
I lost my 18 and 20 year old girls recently. I can’t even consider a new family member yet.
I remember when my cat, the youngest in the house (We have a lot of cats. It comes with the job), left us like it was yesterday. (1/?)
Her name was autumn and she was a little gray Maine Coon, well not really little. She was very large for her age. and had a big bushy (2/?)
The man just has so much love to give though
Why did I read that as legs instead of dogs?
good choice :)
DAMN! Why do I chop those onions for no freaking reason?
tail. Well, my family and I went to Disney World with the relatives for New Years. I think it was 4, maybe 5 years ago. Well, it was (3/?)
so they got him a fucking snowball! Shits gonna melt within a month
I'm not crying, you're crying!
You’re my spirit animal
Dust in the eyes! LOTS of dust!!
January 2nd of the new year and we got a call from the house sitters, Kinda need them to keep the pets fed, you know? Well... (4/?)
Whatever it is... I'm not pulling out magnifying glasses n shit. Lol
Yeah but now I have tears in my eyes. Also I have to get out of bed to go love my puppers.
Dogs cannot be replaced. You can get another one, but you cannot replace one.
Autumn was on the floor, shallowly breathing and the house sitters rushed her over to the vet. My brother freaking out and I was (5/?)
I hate that pain of losing a pet. Makes me not want another pet because the loss is so hard.
Let this be proof that if you thought you had value... you are easily replaceable.
I grew up with a cat. She was 1 year younger, bottle fed at same time (literally). 17 good years. Within months, I needed new companionship.
struggling really hard to be positive when I screamed at him in front of everyone about his negativity. We lost her. About a year later (6/?
No, they shouldn't be. JMO, I'd need time to mourn and get myself together before I'd consider getting another pet.
Sway (puppy) loves Sparky (old man doggy) so much, but Sparky cannot stand Sway. It's so cute. And y'all don't worry, Sway doesn't ever
My father was a Canada Goose.
We're fostering kittens and there was a black one we were fostering and she was so weird and eccentric that I had to have her. (6/8?)
When my last dog died I had to wait nearly a year before getting another one. I just wasnt emotionally ready until then.
even touch Sparky. If Sway gets too close, Sparky gets rly mad and Sway runs away.
I lost both my labs (sisters) a week apart about a year ago. I can't bring myself to raise another yet, but I will one day damnit!
I'd take some time to grieve, but after a couple months or so I'd get a new dog. I don't really want to be without one.
I named her Mobi. She walks up and down the hallway howling for pets and attention. But she doesn't like my room. It reminds me of Autumn.
When I read that he lost 2 dogs but was having the best birthday I thought the dogs ran away and were found on his birthday.
Autumn would do this little dance with me when it was time for bed, I'd follow her, say good night to mom and dad, and she'd jump up on my
Anyone who doesn't choke up watching this is a frickin' robot!
How did he loose them? Op I need answers!
bed. I'd wake up every morning with her at my feet. Even now I still say goodnight to my parents before bed but I don't have Autumn there.
I sure hope that dog is ready.
To make a story short... er... Yeah, getting a new pet helps when you lost the old one. Never replaces them, but it helps a lot.
I'm not sure this is a good thing. Have some grieving time first.
This breaks and warms my heart
That pup will have a good life.
It's not a replacement. It's a successor.
Eventually, yes. As all living things eventually do.
I was waiting for the second one to come too. Then I realized that they actually died and this one was new. So sad. Such a roller coaster.
Good things are going.........?
I hate this
And that's fine. Every person is different. Sometimes dogs will have successors. Sometimes they won't.
I guess it's technically a dog
That works for some people. But for others, it doesn't. And the dogs would have wanted him to smile again. This is their successor.
...and had them made into blankets?
Yeah. New pets aren't replacements for old ones. They're just successors.
A new pet isn't a replacement. It's the successor to the first one(s).
Absolutely. Just like rebound children
DO YOU HAVE A MERLE COLLIE!!?
Some people will need a grieving period, while others need the distraction and the uplifting. It's not a replacement. It's a successor.
I'M NOT CRYING, YOU'RE CRYING! When they say you don't fuck with another man's dog it's not JUST a saying
I've had multiple cats in my life. I still feel sad that I lost my old one. My new one didn't replace her. He helped me grieve and move on.
Lost my dachshund 2 months ago today. This hit me hard. So glad he has a new fur baby.
Sounds like the PERFECT rebound to me
That’s hellllllla old right? Wow!
Think it works w ex-boyfriends too? Break up? Get a puppy! Pet rebound from shitty broken heart yayyy!!
Holy shit did I read that title wrong... I thought it said he lost both legs within three weeks...
Sometimes furries are bears, sometimes bears are furries, and sometimes they're just fuzzy. Who even knows at this point.
When I had to put down my Great Dane mix, my mom and I were hesitant but were casually looking. Three months later and we got a puppy.
this is a good thing you do here.
It's been 2 yrs for me. I still can't.
They're not real enough to be called dick heads
Congrats, you also have a soul :)
My dad's only cried once in my life, and it was when his dog died. Didn't even cry when his dad died.
What do you meeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaannn
So much grief man, he must have truly loved those dogs. Hope he finds happiness with Lumo
Oh my god. When he said "you came back to me" I started crying. Actual, manly, loud crying.
Oh, for God's sake, pull yourself together, man.
How can you not though. My newfie's death was harder to deal with then some people I've lost.
Hahah good one. bald overweight man curled up on the sofa crying like a girl
You’ve just described my 12 yr old Chihuahua & 2-3 yr old rescued Dachshund. He runs circles around her while she barks @ him & glares @ me.
We get an “auxiliary dog” when the current model is getting older. Makes for an easier process.
Mmhm. I doubt that’s the best birthday ever.
We did that with our dogs.Our kids are super attached to our old dog so we got a puppy in case the worst happens so the hole left is smaller
"Hooman was sad today. Tomorrow, I will do better."
This is why I come to imgur
I lost 2 in a week. I still mourn after months. I feel his pain.
21+ is absolutely record-setting, though some cats can live up to 30 years old.
I'm sorry for your loss. Gone but never forgotten
That's the rule right? A master and apprentice
I just lost my cat and this made me ugly cry
Oh boy, here I go crying again.
That’s low key fucked up
At least he was able to preserve the memories by making them into throw pillows
I'm not crying! You're crying!
Not a given thing on the internet...
Not what'd I call it, but we lost 3 dogs in 18 months. 1 month without a dog was the loneliest time of my life. Now we have this derp...
It's a terrible day for rain.
Girlfriend adopted a cat about two weeks after her dog died. So yes
Been 6 months for me and I can’t bring myself to get another one.
the number of pets in my home is limited by the size of my house. it sucks to lose a pet but frees up a spot for another that needs a home.
HELLO GOOD DOG NOSE I AM GOING TO CUP YOUR SNOUT WITH MY HANDS AND BLOW ON YOUR FOREHEAD
1. It may be a bit soon based on how he grieves. You know what though? He made that dogs life better by giving it a loving home.
I thought he converted his dogs into the fur pillow. Jesus.
God damn onion cutting ninjas!
2. He may not be ready. They will grow and become ready together. One ready to love, the other how to support and learn what makes him smile
For my family yes
When my mum lost one of her dogs she adopted a new one a few days later. Not for her, but so the other dog wouldn’t be lonely.
When my pooki died I thought id never stop crying. My other dog was also incredibly depressed. A new dog made us both feel better.
I'm the exact opposite. I don't think I will ever have a dog again after mine died years ago.
Oh god that's awful, I'm sorry. I'd like to think that whoever got him the puppy had had a convo with him if he was ready to move on...
2 That's what I'm telling myself, anyway...
Ok well fuck you then.
That you know of... Sometimes our guard isn't down until we're alone. Not me, I cry over plenty of things and I'm a fairly big dude.
It's different for everyone. Some people need time, others use this as part of the grieving proces.
Yup but he still got cried on ive shed many tears on my dog for various reasons
The real answer of course it to get like 7 cats, and then you'll be entertained by their social shenanigans forever.
People are different. Some people need uninterrupted time to grieve, others use the companionship as part of the process.
A lot of expectations on that pup.
My mom cant have another dog cause the loss of our good boy boxer was too much for her :(
My childhood cat did that. Outlived 3 of the younger cats. Little bastard lived to be 21; had him since I was 2.
Don’t get me wrong - I love my dog. She basically rules the house. I’m not going to organise a prof. photo shoot for her though.
is he crying from happiness at the new dog, or still crying the loss of the other dogs?
I'm not crying, your crying
Why tf did I read that as legs instead of dogs . . . I was so confused when I saw that he had both legs. . . ????
Looks like white dog depictured on wall so may well be.
I have two dogs similar to this dog! Am I a man hoe then? :0
I feel uncomfortable referring to this person as a man.
You will in your lifetime. It just takes time. New pet is not a replacement. Just a new friend.
All. The. Time. Something fuzzy to replace the hole. Wait.....
We've investigated and confirmed that he is indeed a good boy.
That's not kind of you to say. I see that you're trying to be coy and snarky, but leave this one alone.
I mean just trying to replace the grief with a new dog/girlfriend/whatever isn't really healthy if you've not dealt with it
She'll need another slave/staffie to care for her who MUST deal with that. We lost 2 eldest in a month; rough.
I’d criticize the guy, but I was a total mess for a few weeks after my first dog died. Glad he has a new friend.
It's not necessarily replacement for them though. If it would be for you and you'd need time that's completely fine, but for other people
2 welcoming and giving time and life to a new pet can aid their grieving process. When my father died the best thing for me was to go to
3 work and stay busy. I know that's not the case for everyone though. I think if my current cat died, I'd need a little time but I love
Grown men weeping = kryptonite
I think it makes a big difference how old they are when they die. Your girls probably lived long happy lives.
4 animals and for me I'd want to honor and remember her by giving the time and love that would have been hers to another animal in need.
They'd understand you'd need a new companion.
Maybe don’t make them into furniture then.
rebound in like reaping the souls of the dead dogs and putting them inside a living vessel?
Hey man, he's holding that dog and loving it, and the dog is loving him back. Hurt doesn't stop hurting, but you move with the flow.
Totally. My mums dog died very suddenly. She was completely grief stricken and lost all her lust for life. She thought she could never 1/
I'm not being judgmental, but man I would NOT want a new puppy right after my dogs died. I need some time to reflect man!
Blooming onion ninjas, get lost! It's 4am!
Wrong- I'm bawling!
That would be way too soon for me
bear the thought of having another dog but my stepdad persuaded her. The instant change in their happiness & energy has been astonishing 1/2
They gifted him a lil fluffy cloud?
As someone who recently been through this I can relate. It makes a difference knowing you rescued another pet, though it will still hurt...
Im not crying. It's just raining
Man up bitch tits. It's just a dog and you are a big boy now so you can buy your own fucking dog. All the dogs you want.
Nah, I would be really insulted if someone gave me a replacement pet. Fuck that
We all need floops in our lives
I wish I could upvote this 100 more times
Well that sent me down a YouTube rabbit hole of men weeping when they are surprised with puppies. Time well spent.
but how many times can this be in front page? maybe i’ve been here too long..
When my dog died back in December, I didn't think I'd ever want another. But I fell in love again. It could happen, don't lose hope.
Every pet after the first is a rebound.
Way worth watching source.
I'm not crying, *you're* crying.
I want to give you two upvotes. One for your comment and one for your name.
your mom sounds depressed
No, just a double hoe
My 13 year old best friend (dog of course) died in my arms and I couldn't stand the silence in the house, after a week I got a new puppy and
I always think of her as a gift from my old girl to me ❤
Aww, they found them Where were they hiding?
+1. Not saying I'm tough but I watched my sister slip out of life 3 inches from me after a car crash and only felt comfortable crying alone
M sorry about your kitty. I know they were loved.
Love this quote
I’m feeling all the feels at this video. Such a bittersweet moment.
I adopted a cat a week or two after mine passed... the house just feels so empty without one.
Those puppers would want someone to watch over their hooman... that's how I feel anyway... I have 3 yorkies and 3 kitties currently but (1)
my vet calls my dogs the geriatric puppy ward... She's right :'(
Oh man im crying at 5am on the way to work
In reverse it’s the whole situation all over again =‘(
Fuck. I've been struggling with the loss of my boy for two years. This actually meant a lot to me.
We haven't lost any cats yet, but they are 17, 11 and 4.
Always 2! That's how I got up to 6 cats. It's chaos but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Also, the younger pet can sometimes inherit traits from the older pet so it reminds you more of the pet you lost.
Wait. What happened to the dogs...
Damn , those feels though
It’s been 6 months for me. Still hurting.
My cat is 9, in good health, but I’m thinking of getting a kitten for her so she has a friend to play with and feels young again.
Love your username
On the bright side you never fuck up their name!
Please allow me to exploit your emotional pain for meaningless internet likes from faceless strangers.
My dad lost his golden retriever Dawson (after the baseball player) and didn't get another until 3 years after because 1/?
One of my mom's clients lost her beloved cat, she didn't think she'd readopt for years. Last Friday she took one of our rescues home.
It's not for everyone. Some people need some time before they're ready for another. I speak from personal experience.
"Nothing can replace my best boy" and even when he did get another he didn't want a golden retriever because "I don't want to forget my boy"
She came by after hours to give us a thank you card. I wasn't aware her cat died, and told het the cat she was petting is adoptable jokingly
I would be crying because I missed my old dog too much from just the sight of a new one...
same. mine passed almost 3yrs ago and i thought about rescuing but i don't want a new dog. i just want her back
Do people usually appreciate being recorded when they are crying?
What strange hell have you suffered through, that that's the first thing you thought of?
I’m so glad I clicked on that link
He said he was a furry. Didn't ask any more questions
I'm only 17, but the same is probably going to happen for me. My parents plan on getting me my own dog when I move out to keep me company.
Some people need the companionship and they're ready to welcome a new family member. They're not trying to replace their lost pet.
*furry was used as a general term
Ya like dags?
Youre not alone, i saw all that fur and thought that was extremely strange for a memorial...
Oh man, the source is fucking precious. That dog is going to be SO loved!
Can you imagine if we did that with humans/kids. “My 18 year old son died, but now I get another one!” It’s late go to bed snip
When the master dies, so the apprentice becomes the master and requires their own apprentice.
My cat died a couple weeks ago. We had her 14 years, and did our best to keep her happy and healthy. We're adopting a new kitten soon. :)

This is why I hate Imgur when I'm drunk. My heart is warm and my face is covered in salt water.
The Queen Elizabeth philosophy of life.
He has a studio picture of his late dog! This man is a legit dog dad! He deserves to always be a dad to dog!!
Gtfo you shitty ass
Unless it’s a dog
Yes, I have one. Got her 2 weeks after losing our pup suddenly. I love her to death. Wasn't sane when we got her, but she sure helped us.
She makes me laugh a lot.
Man you could've fit the y but you choose to go with 3 E's. I can respect that
Can we look at relationships like this?
My dad lost his cat last year and just gave his dog back to the actual owners. But if I showd up with a new pet,I know 100% he'd yell at me.
Becsuse dogs are our lite. ❤❤❤
Doggos- the only source of unconditional love in this world.!
Cool demon shirt
When my bird died I was totally destroyed emotionally. My sisters got me a kitten after 3 months and he really helped me heal.
My hubby and I cried like little bitches when our pup passed. I've never seen him so emotional... It's been a year and we still fucked up.
There isn't much that's perfect in this life, but dogs are damn sure close to it.
Honestly, imagine how your dog would react to find out that you're living dogless now! How could you! Every house needs a dog!
I don't look at it as 'rebound'. I'm a responsible, loving pet person. I adopted 2 days after a loss. Because I have a great life to give to
To an animal.
Absolutely. When my wife left me, i would have gone insane if i didn't start fucking my cat right away.
Sorry, I'm a lurker, messed up comment thread.
Cats believe Queen Elizabeth lacks ambition.
I lost my old puppo a month ago. I'm not ready for a new puppo yet.
It’s unfair that our canine companions don’t live as long as us :( but there are other doggies out there than need you!! :)
Dogs cannot be replaced. Only thing you can do is find another one to love.
No onions here, just real feels. Great post.
I think the grief would be worse not having a dog at all in your life, even though it's not the same dog.
I believe the proper term is player.
Damn that video made me cry
the 7th and 21st of april we lost two dogs a few years ago. Sad :(
Hair of the dog.
Went back to look, good job being aware of your surroundings
Grieving is easier with a kitten and a rescue cat.
This. I try to "schedule" my breakdowns for when Im alone, extracting it like a poison in private bc ppl have a need to comfort the 1/
crying girl when all I want is to get the pain out of my system so I can keep on keepin' on.
I do not know what [deleted] said, but this is the 2nd time I've agreed with a crackhead based on gut.
Who are the fuckers that downvotes this?! You need more love in your life!
Get a turtle :)
hullo new fren
you have to be very careful when buying a pet for someone who's just lost one (two), looks like they make the right choice though.
Always wonder what the puppy’s thoughts are as they are handed to a bawling human
Let me explain it this way: If all your friends jumped off of a cliff, would yooooooooo
You know, not to get all foreboding, but there is a non-zero chance you will regret those words. That being said, I haven't either.
is it the same dog or a new one?
Something’s in my eye
But what are those furry things living on the sofa?
It's okay I just tripped off the grand canyon...nbd. tis merely a scratch
Looks like he used the dogs to make his couch decor. But I am happy for him. That guys needed another dog.
Oh my God, my heart. Bless that beautiful man!!!
My family went a week without a dog...it was just too painful to come home to an empty house. Even our cat was sad.
Good for him. Now take that one away too, so we can see his reaction. Then tease him again.
Look at it this way. You gave this small creature the best time of their lives. Honor them by doing the same to another small creature.
That pup is going to have the best life ever.
Dooting this for later
Same, the video was brutal.
I don't like being touched. People always touch n "comfort" you when you're upset. I feel the same way as you
Particularly if that man is named John Wick
My dog passed away last week. I can barely imaginethe pain of losing two.
There's something heartwarming about a giant man turning into mush at the sight of a pupper.
Oh, god, my dog looks like that. Quick, next image!
I know for sure he isn't as though as he looks. Don't judge a book by it's cover.
I seriously doubt this is the best birthday ever for him considering the circumstances. -_-
And it's white and fluffy like the dog in the framed portrait!
You bastard, I’m in the DFAC on deployment and trying to hold back the fucking tears after watching that video.
Theres always a dog that needs love.
Saw the video and drowned 5 tissues and my keyboard. Totally worth it. Highly recommend.
Children or adults ... dogs always brings tears of joy ....
Sometimes it doesn't hit you until you're alone. Sorry for your sister.
We did this and the best it ever got was “tolerating; hissing less frequently.” The older cat was way too used to having us to herself.
I punched a cunt for making fun of me because i was distraught when i put my dog down
Sadly, I've seen some people who treat them like replacements - giving them the same name, identical toys, grooming, etc.
My dogs had the same ending. Had him since I was 6. Then got him a pall when I was like 14. Both died within a month.
Why the fuck would you do this to me first thing in the morning!? Fucking ruined.
Or until you're in a car with OPsMom...
I'm so sorry for your loss
I think he gay. Nothing wrong with that..
But he lost two dogs and he only gets one?
Happy ending though.
My cat died and I've never been so upset. Lost all grandparents and didn't feel anything really. Feel bad about not feeling more...
I Just finished not thinking about my dog that died like 7 years ago and now FORK YOU OPT.T.
Dad grew up on a tobacco farm. Fought to make money in college. I saw him cry twice publicly. When him mom passed, and our 15 year old pup.
Time and a place, bro.
3 years for me. Don't know if I'll ever get another one actually - hurts so much to lose them.
pst it the dudes username
Idk, I think it depends on the person. I've had both cats and dogs and dogs are def easier for me.
That's what I'm afraid of. 2 years ago I had 5 cats. Now I have 2. It wasn't unexpected, 4 were old, but the survivor is the eldest.
Now I'm reluctant to rescue a new cat because I don't know if she'll hate them for five more years, or what.
My condolences.. as soon as you’re ready, hit the kitten room at your local humane society... lots of little furbabies
why are you making me cry at 9 am
Are... Are we related?
Then why does he have dog-skin rugs on the couch?
you should ask for his fursona to see if he’s a furry
I had noticed.
He got new that he can lost it again?
I felt the same for most of my pets. but ...I rescued some kittens from the street not long after my catto was murdered & it really helped
Well if you lose a dog you are left with a hole in the family. Almost all dog owners I know of got a new dog after their last dog died.
I'm usually against gifting pets but this dude seems like he really needed that dog.
A lot of people seem to think I'm super mellow, calm and kinda cold. Not very emotional. Truth is I'm an emotional mess, stressed AF.
here, have some tears with your morning coffee.Damn.
My dog is at the average age his breed dies at. I can't imagine waking up without his retarded face watching to see if we're really 1
Getting up or just going to the bathroom and back to bed. I don't want to get a puppy while he is alive cause I don't want him to feel 2
Jealous or unloved but I also want him to totally imprint on a puppy so it knows how to be the best dog ever
Yeah that sounds about right. Nothing like a good solo sob.
That’s the most bad-ass looking chihuahua I’ve ever seen.
This is why I love Imguuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrr...... *splat*
And now I'm crying at work and missing my dogs. Just...take my upvote already.
well he's got a picture of one on the wall
The dogs who died were irreplaceable, ohhhh wait.
That’s gonna be on spoiled little fluffball!!
Have you tried this? You would seem only an expert in small arctic fowl, how can I trust you
Also ru a *small human* who studies tuxedoed flightless birds, or ru a human who studies *small* tuxedoed flightless birds? plz clarify
It's different for everyone. As long as you still move on from the last, but not forget them, getting a new one can be healthy for you.
Ah, it looks like it's beginning to rain.
Are you big enough to be considered "An absolute unit"?
Never a last cat, my kids/grandkids will inherit any pets I still have :D
Omg “you came back to me!”?!?! And I’m fucking bawling
Sitting in the office trying to inconspicuously wipe the tears from my eyes.
Yes, and in many cases it turns out badly. Many people who replace a pet before they're ready end up unhappy bc the new one isn't just like
the last. They'll be so attached to the idea of Fluffy 2.0 that they don't get to know their new pet as the individual they are.
I always feel that's the better way to go. Especially cuz puppies and kittens often seem to help perk up an older pet and keep them going.
What are you on about?
Not technically. But my old dog was always a great comfort during breakups. Also, Arctic is north, penguins are southern of equator
I don't think anyone really knows how quickly they'll be ready for a new pet until AFTER they've lost current ones. I thought it would take
me a year or more but just 6 months later I'm getting ready for a new puppy. Some people DO take years though, and others are like same-day
It's just important to make sure when you do it, you're of the mindset you're getting a NEW pet. Not another last-pet. And you're past the
depression phase enough to actually have the energy and drive for training/caring for a new pet.
he deserved it. im sorry.
I think he is repeatedly saying "That's my boy" looking at his lips. ;_;
This is wonderful. I wanna give him a hug!
That is the correct way to ask.
dang.. u made me cry
Don't watch the source with sound if you need to be productive and not be an emotional wreck for a few minutes.
It’s weird. She even said in passing once “that you can just replace them” like it was nbd. She was pretty f’d up too
It doesn't say how long it's been since he lost them just that it's his birthday.
These kind of vids always get me man. I remember my parents asking me if I wanted another dog the day after my childhood dog past away - i
said no. i was 17 at the time and knew i couldn't handle it. 2 weeks later they got another dog. took almost 10 years to finally give that
Strong men also cry, Mr. Lebowski
dog attention. always felt so guilt ridden that I couldn't pet him but damn i was mourning, ye know? i really did and still do feel horrible
He lost 2 dogs so thet give him another one to make him suffer more when he die also?
Thanks. It's been a while since the accident. Doing just fine now.
hope he remembers where he puts this one
Awe what a cutie
I feel you. I rarely break down but when i do its usually around my gf. And when I ask her not to touch me she gets really upset.
Sorry not sorry m8
I think its hard for them to understand. Crying was a weakness to take advantage of in my family so my husband doesn't get why I wouldn't 1/
want to be consoled when all I'm worried about is tamping down on the water works to hide that weakness - which means I'll just need to 2/
reschedule a time to be upset because the process needs to happen in full so best just to leave me alone to get it out. But I see he often3/
struggles w/ that. We've taken to us going in a dark room so I can cry where no one can "see" me & he tries to minimize his consoling lol.
Dog picture on the wall says he cherished them. Damn
That's exactly what I did. My old guy has been around for a third of my life. It's going to be a mother fucker when he goes.
It's from a TV show...
Her name Bubbles...
My dad was like this. Burst into tears when our 23 yr old cat died. Didn't even cry at his own mothers funeral. dammit i miss him
Well at least we know ONE dog that will be spoiled to death. Congrats!!
You are one of those clowns who walks around in a blizzard half naked because you think you are stronger than nature itself aintcha?
"Good things are going to happen" pillow is very prescient. Yay for baby doggos!
Tough enough to not be afraid of macho tryhards judging him for showing emotion, I'd say.
If you never had a dog you will never know. They are a family member. People didn't leave there homes during a big fire because
The government couldn't take the dogs with them.
Did he have them made into pillows?
Yes, because physical appearance dictates emotional stability.
Omg I cried hard watching this.
I’m not crying, you’re crying....
Hm. Good point. I think I need a dog. Also, Anarctic fowl then?
Something similar happened to my mom: 1 dog got hit by a car and died in her arms but the reason everyone was outside was to take (1/?)
dog 2 to the vet. We later found out he was in kidney failure. This all happened on her birthday. It was a very tough time. (2/2)
That’s what I’m worried about, but I also worry if she gets bored when I have to leave for work or whatever.
Me yesterday for sureeee
It's 10:30 am and i'm now crying.
I think that you can tell someone they were loved and they will understand. It’s hard to know if an animal knows they were loved. 1/2
And that uncertainty makes it harder to accept the death. We instinctively seek confirmation.
I know that's how I'm going to be. My outer family has never really been close. Hell, neither is my immediate family. We're private people.
Antarctic lol and I would love to study them but the ones I study are local and don’t swim that far south. Dog or a cat, both help a lot
AND playing with a younger pet can sometimes increase the lifespan of the older one!
And your mother smelled of elderberries?
I thought it read "Many lost both legs..." No he didn't, I see one and what dafuq is a dog gonna do?
Same , I lost my cat in 2001 .. I couldnt bear getting a new one . In 2003 my mom got me a kitten for my birthday due to my depression .
When my dog Luna died (17 years) as sad as it was I could see a empty space at home to a new stray dog who need it
Yeah I have a14 and a 15 year old.
I always wonder if it's traumatic for these puppies to get handed over to weeping humans
living on an onion farm never felt more devastating than right now
Damn. He looks tough as fuck, he must've loved those dogs.
Thank you :)
Thank you :) i have two older cats so there probably won’t be a new kitty. The one that died was only two years old and my favorite :(
"My baby boy, you've come back to me"...
Thank you <3
I'm not crying, you are crying!
So extremely loved <3
I need thissss
Thanks I have two older cats so there probably won’t be a new kitty for a while but the one that died was only 2 years old and my favorite:(
This is lovely <3
If you need to talk or vent, PM me and I'll help :)
aaaand now I'm crying. Great.
Yup...a week after my lil man had to take the long nap I went to a rescue “just to look” and came home with a new lil weirdo.
Took me 3 years to get another dog after my last one passed. I probably shouldn't have waited so long. Dog's are love.
I would have to. I couldn’t bear losing my dog and coming home to an empty house everyday.
I cry all the time over nothing, mostly when I have to talk to people. I'm probably an actual mental case. Scrawny dude here
Who put these damn onions here?
Unfortunately yes. And it's not the right reason to get a pet.
Awww. Poor dude, but I'm really glad he got another pupper. I recently lost my dog, and I understand the sorrow of losing a dog. The new guy
will definitely help with the pain of losing his 9ld furry friends. 2/2
This one gets it, thank you friend.
From time to time I would say.
The joy they bring to my life outweighs the pain of their leaving. For me each one has left me with cherished memories.
There'll be more posts...
Great.. now im crying at work.......
Yessiree. And I always have more than one. I call it back stock so the house is never empty.
Two would. Or three.
This thread is wild lol
I have no idea what I said, but it was nice.
I like this, i just lost mine today after 12 years of loyal friendship
I think I get more in return, though. I can bring my dog to the park, and she greets me when I come home, and she knows what words mean.
Trust me, they ain’t as cute when they’re pooping on you & biting you. Plus they’re covered in fleas & mites & have lots of parasites
So if you do wanna hold one, stick to zoos…
Kills me every time. I squeeze my dog so hard she doesn't know wtf is happening.
Your dad is good people.
I had that problem too. My grandparents lived out of state so they gradually faded out of my life. It didn't hit me hard when they died.
Dude, he loved that pupper from the moment he saw it. And pupper knows it.
Thats fine but puppers still gonna have happy tears all over him hope they have along life together with many balls to chase
