We had to put two of our dogs down last year, one of them being my best friend and my ride or die,my barn recently lost a horse due to colic, as well as another horse 3 years ago around Christmas time.
I think its a plausible method of coping to get a new pet.
A really super sweet and super funny hen of mine passed away two weeks ago exactly and my immediate reaction was sad/disbelief, but then I thought maybe we should get new chicks to bring up the moods of the household and the coop.
My betta died the other day and I am going today to possibly get a new one I had him for like 2 years though ;-; And my hamster died a week or so ago and I had to get a new one or I was going to fall into depression
Sorry Dead, that sucks. I just had my 16 year old dog die this year. What was nice for me to think about was how good and long of a life she had, and that she finally gets to go. Not HAS to like it something bad, but that she had a great life and now gets to rest
