I grew up in a multi-pet home (rodents, turtles, fish, cats and dog) so I always tried to think of them equally. My dog was my best friend though, there is nothing in the world that can take away the relationship I had with that dog. He passed away last year at 14 yrs old and I fell into a depression that lasted a few months. 14 years of multiple daily walks (bc my parents stopped taking care of him after a while, only bought the food until I began working) and he was a terrier so we played with him a lot so. The transition from such an active lifestyle to a sedentary one (no reason to go for random walks now) was hard on me. Oliver spruced up inside apartment life but I'm counting the days until I can get another dog. I'm not going to lie.
