Red face Hello, again

I was an active poster on chaz several years ago.

I'm sad to report that my first dog, Milo, passed away at the age of 10 after a brief and painful fight with bone marrow cancer.

Here is a thread I started back in 2007 that shows him with McGee
-- then a rescue puppy, now nearly 5 years old. We're both terribly lonely and miss Milo very much.

I am considering how to move forward from this loss and help McGee and me get through our grief. I came back to chaz to seek the advice of you good people as needed. I've never lost a dog before so it's all new territory for me.

As a sidenote, McGee and I are currently working on "click to calm" techniques since she gets nervous around people she doesn't know.

I learn so much when I am here and am thankful to be back.

Welcome back to Chaz. I'm so sorry to hear about Milo; try to remember all the good times & love you shared. It takes time to heal; this shows just how much you meant to each other. Try to take each day one at a time. I'm glad you have McGee in your life to brighten each day.

It's so good to see you back, Malmo. I'm just sorry it is under such sad circumstances ((((((HUGS))))))

This is something that has stuck with me since I was very, very young and struck a deep chord of truth -- it's helped through several losses.

Hi, welcome back! I am so sorry to hear about Milo.

We have another awesome Maltese person and her dogs on the board now too, Katooka.

Many thanks to all for the welcome, the warm thoughts, and condolences. This is probably the worst loss/grief experience I have ever gone through so it's nice to know that others can relate. Even my "dog-people" friends aren't totally understanding the depth of my sadness.

I have been lurking around chaz for the past 3-4 weeks and noticed we have new Maltese friends here. Awesome! I am to the point where I am trying to decide who/what/when/where my next dog will be. Of course I have considered getting another Maltese but am hesitant to get such an obvious "replacement dog."

I look forward to getting more involved here. I really value the depth of knowledge and experience of the folks here.
