It is very hard, but it does get easier with time.
We recently lost a Husky 3 months ago that we were very close to.
It was quite difficult and we shed many tears, but now I tell my wife that at the Rainbow bridge Rex gets to eat homecooked meat filled lasagna with TONS of parmasean cheese. He gets to have triple portions.
It makes her smile, me too.
Only good happens at the Rainbow Bridge. There is no suffering there.
To all who have lost their furry/furless bundle of joy, you have our condolences and our support.
