@gabelovescheese, Sorry to hear about Sprout. My apartment building burned down in Nov of 2011. My 7 month old puppy died in the fire. The fire actually turned out to be the best thing that could’ve happened to me. Although I was devastated by the loss of Andre (my puppy), I learned to accept things and not to put labels on events. Death is a part of life and life itself has no meaning; it’s us who give it meaning. When we lose loved ones, it hurts. That pain is a natural part of life. However the suffering that we feel is from attachment, and that is a choice.

You have the choice to feel guilty and to feel sad, and you can choose to do so for as long as you want or need to. However know that this is your choice.

This is the story of my loss. Maybe it’ll be of some inspiration for you.
