Hi everyone. So 5 weeks ago we got a little terrier type dog, 14 months old. He's the first dog we've had together as a couple, we've both owned dogs in the past but when each one of them died, they took a piece of my heart with them and I could stand it no more, I was heartbroken. 12 years has gone by and my heart has only just healed, so we got this little chap. I love him so much. So much that I can cry just thinking about him, I cry at the thought of losing him or him getting ill or getting hurt. Out walking the other day a dog went for him and bit him on his side, not seriously but there's a scratch and there must be a bruise, and it's nearly killed me to think that he's upset and hurting. I look at his little face and feel so responsible for him. He's at home alone now, for 2 hours while I work then I'm going home to walk him. He's safe and cool in the house and loves his peace and quiet, that's not why I'm upset, it's the fact that I'm missing him terribly. What on earth is wrong with me?
