Surrendering - September 8th 2014, 03:43 PM

My mom has two dogs and she is poor and can't afford them. So she is surrendering one of her dogs. The problem is the dog she is surrendering is the dog I love the most. She is my little depression dog. She knows when I'm upset and she stayed in bed with me for a week when I was depressed and didn't leave my side. I'm going to miss this dog so much. They have found a foster home for her so it's just a matter of days before she leaves. I don't want to relapse but it's going to be hard not to.

I asked my grandma if I could get my own dog and they said no because we already have four. I understand that but I wish I had one of my own.

I am so sorry that you are going through such a tough/difficult time right now. Is there any way of whoever may get your "depression dog" if you could like visit her from time to time? If you are able to visit, then great, but if you are not able to then at least you still have the other four dogs. Are you close with any of the other dogs?

Are you currently seeing a therapist/counselor? If not, then I highly suggest that you try to see one as this situation/issue is starting to affect you in some way that you are thinking about relapsing. If you are currently seeing one, then tell them about this situation/issue. Let them know how you are feeling and how you think it is going to affect you in the end.

So, right now, cherish the moments that you have with your "depression dog".

I'm really sorry to hear about this! I like Cathy's idea if seeing if you would be allowed to visit your dog periodically. Maybe you can take pictures/videos and make a scrapbook of some sort so you'll remember your dog. Also, if you want, you could always get a stuffed animal that looks similar to your dog!


When I look into the eyes of an animal
I do not see an animal
I see a living being
I see a friend
I feel a soul.


They whispered to her
you cannot withstand the storm
she whispered back
i am the storm.

It turns out my grandpa said yes to a puppy. But we have to see if we are the right fit. But I'm still upset and worried about what's gonna happen when Beas gone

Couldn't you take this dog she is getting rid of instead of a puppy?

No because she is a runner and my grandma doesn't want a runner.

That sucks that you're not allowed to keep your moms dog, would your grandma consider taking your moms dog?
You could always try to explain how important she is to you, plus your moms dog already knows you.
If you aren't allowed then you could ask if it would be possible to visit the dog occasionally as it was suggested above
Good luck

We just gave her up today not even an hour ago. It's really sad but it was for the best.

I'm so sorry this happened to you. However, it was the best thing to do. Please don't blame yourself,

I really don't think it would be the right time, or place to get a puppy. One of your dogs was just given, due to her being a " runner". Puppies are a LOT of work. You need to potty train, which can be difficult,& is time consuming. It takes anywhere from a few weeks to few months.There will be accidents. You need to socialize. To different stimulus, such as people, animals,& environments.

If your really stuck onto getting a dog, I'd either the rescue route, or go to a breeder, that has retired breeding dog. Their usually housebroken, know a few commands,& you'll know the temperament of the dog. You could a older puppy, if your stuck on that.
