Sorry if I alarmed anyone with the title, as my heart doesn't literally hurt, it's just breaking. :(

As you all know, I've left my job as a dog walker. I was hoping to help out with training the new girl next week, but my boss is gonna do it. I am so sad! That means that this Friday is my last day with my beautiful puppies! I had 2 dogs that I only walk on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so we had a very tearful goodbye just now. Am I crazy to be missing these dogs this much? I've only been a dog walker for 3 months, but some of these dogs I see once or twice a day, Monday to Friday! I've been so depressed and crying off nad on for a while. This is so painful for me...... :(

i'm so sorry to hear u'r in so much pain. i think it's very natural to feel such a loss. it's something u have to go thru and it will take time.
remember the love and joy u shared with them and don't let this pain stop u from feeling attached, loving and sharing with other animals in the future.
stay strong

Heelers,sit down on the floor,let your menagerie take care of you,they'll comfort you,your doggies will lick away your tears and the cats, purr their little hearts out :love: The froggies..well,I'll leave it at that :)
You'll be ok,just give it some time,remember you are doing this for you and your husband.....soon enough you'll be back to doing what you love :thumbs up

Thanks you two! Chico, good advice. I know my pups and kitties will take care of me. I'm just gonna curl up with some hot tea and a big bucket of ice cream!!!! Weird combo, I know....:o
