Two days ago I lost my guinea pig Archie. He got sick overnight and I took him to the vet to see if she could cure him. A few antibiotic shots later and with some critical care I went back home with Archie. With hope in my heart; I thought he was going to be okay. He died in my arms a few hours later.
The worst is when time has come for a pet to pass on. It's horrible to see them slip away and not being able to do something about it. You feel so powerless.
When a pet dies, people often say: ''just get a new one.'' As many people know, you don't just 'get a new one'. Our beloved pets touch our hearts and each and every animal is unique in their own way. They have their own personality and you love them so much for being silly, sweet or crazy. Even when they make a huge mess or when they pee on you.
Sometimes people think you are or should be over it after a few days or weeks. That's not the case. When animals touched your heart and were a part of your life, there is a high chance you will never get over losing one of your furry babies. You just learn to live without them.
