Exactly two months ago he passed away. I still get really upset talking about him, he was my baby. He meant the world to me. His passing hit me hard, he went so suddenly and if I’m being honest, I don’t want to move on for fear of forgetting my darling. EF38C072-8C6C-4014-8CA1-A462930EA51E.jpeg

I'm really sorry for your loss. It can definitely be hard to move forward after a loss. For what it's worth, I've had many pets over the years and have never forgotten a single one of them. Pets can't be replaced, they are each unique and hold a special place in our heart. But there may come a time when there is enough space in your heart for a new pet... not as a replacement, but as a unique individual in their own right. You will know when you get there. ((HUGS.))

You will never forget him. He was a gorgeous boy. He will always be with you, in the love you had for each other, in the memories you shared and in the photos you have of him. It's only been a short amount of time so things will still be feeling pretty raw at the moment. The longer the grieving the more you have loved.

So sorry for your loss. Each piggy we let into our lives is special and unique.
Your little one has taught you to love piggies, getting another one won't be a replacement but an extension of the love you shared.
I never forget my of my piggies, the funny little things they did and their little quirks and personalities.
Hugs at this difficult time.xx

So sorry for your loss. Grief takes time and 2 months isn't that long
You will never forget - I still remember and treasure the piggies I have lost. Their successors are still loved and have made their own places in my heart.
The nature of love is the heart has and endless capacity for love and the more we love, the more there is to pass on.
