I know how sad firsts are but you have Beanie and she needs to have experiences and fun just like Wonka did! I have taken each successive Pug to the same beach spring and summer since Sassi. I try to give them special moments as those memories make life work. I miss Sissi so much at Christmas she would go round and round under the Christmas tree!
Hope you feel better and know that Wonka loved you to the moon and beyond.

Thank you all. Yesterday was really rough, but I knew PVer's would understand and I do so appreciate your kind words and support. I'm doing a bit better today, but feeling "drained" after so much emotional crying yesterday.
Thanks for letting me share

We never touch people so lightly that we don't leave a trace.
Thinking of you, Amy. Had to have been such a hard day. Wonka was a lucky boy to be so well loved and remembered by you. When the time is right another one will come your way. Hang in there!

I understand, Oct, is Scruffy birthday, and she died 2 weeks before turning 16, I remember like it was yesterday what last year was like with her and her falling over etc.
Everyone is different and I know Scruffy and Maggie are so glad that we, and Bo have Lucy,the smiles she puts on our face, and Lucy is probably the cuddliest pug I ever had, also she will be the biggest, but everyone is different and you will know when it is time, and just like Patricia(beechykeen) she got a puppy because it was so hard adopting older dogs and not having that much time with them, so that is something else to think about, or at least a younger pug.
Go to the pumpkin patch, in honor of Wonka and Nilla , make new memories. Wear a mask and social distance.

Hugs. The anniversaries are rough and the first ones are the roughest.
They say you'll know when it's time for another dog. I can't say because I haven't had that feeling and at the moment all I know is it's not time for me. We had always planned to have a dog free period after Snifter and Toddy so we could go travelling more spontaneously and for longer periods (ha! Thanks, Covid) but right now I just can't see myself with another one ever. I know that sounds kind of maudlin but it isn't. There are times, two and three years on from the losses, that I will burst into tears over them, but the memories now are generally positive and happy. Only yesterday we were laughing our heads off at the memory of how Snifter hated my peg apron and would attack it on my person every time I hung laundry.
Hang in there x
Bella, mummy to Snifter and Toddy!
