Hi, it is with a broken heart i write this, yesterday i had to give up my 2 7yr old dogs to a rehoming centre through no fault of their own. Back story, i have had them since they were puppies and 2 & half years ago my ex & i split leaving me with a child, 2 dogs & 5 cats. I rehomed 1 cat straight away but found the process traumatic & decided to keep all the others. In the meantime the house had to go on the market & i knew that at some point i'd have to make the difficult decision again. Nothing happened until now & the house is now being sold and i have to move to rented and i know finding an affordable rented place for all of us would be very difficult so i made the painful decision of rehoming the dogs & 2 cats. The dogs went yesterday and i am struck with grief, i have a dog shaped hole in my heart, the house is so quiet & empty without them and i feel i have made a huge mistake and just cant stop crying, i know it will take time but i worry about how the dogs are coping, i just feel like the world's worst person & knowing they are no longer in my life i'm just so inconsolable, how do i cope with grief?
