    There's a band interview in Norwegian I'd like to be able to read, but in hindsight it's probably a lot to ask for someone to translate it.

    I was searching for an old HBB classic to add to my sig and stumbled across this gem:

    Pretty good 4th yesterday. Brother, his wife and 4yr old nephew came home from Texas.
    Family came over to my house and got in the pool. Also grilled hot dogs, brats, pork steaks, and corn.
    Awesome greek salad. Veggies. And a strawberry dessert thing.
    After the late lunch we went to my parents and had a late dinner. Hamburgers and shit. Success!

    Try deepl.com. It's a lot better than Google Translate.

    hey @Slammed, so we just lost a pack member(and my best friend of 13 years), and my other dog is completely devastated. She's not eating, drinking water, paying any attention to me. Shes going and laying in weird places and facing the walls. She was with him since she got here almost 12 years ago :(. I remember you saying you've had a lot of doggies so i thought i'd ask for some advice.

    Everyone is taking it hard. That dog was a huge part of my life and was with me through some of the my hardest times. He was more than a best friend tbh. He truly was a part of me, a part that's gone now.

    @TechnicalBarbarity Sorry for your loss man.
    Just like most people fur friends attach themselves to people are other furies. There is no magic solution to grief in other pets just like their is no single solution in humans.
    The points brought up in the first link old country posted are quite good and definitely worth looking at.
    Like humans, animals are all different, text books don't always explain them but they can help. The thing is you know your dog and you know her behaviour, what you're seeing is real and there is nothing wrong with it but it does pay to keep an eye on what is happening so you know when/if it's time to step in. The dog was a big part of your life but he was also a big part of her life she needs to grieve so let her, but keep an eye on her. Moping around and being a bit off food is common, don't force yourself on her but let her know you are there. If she growls at you when you pat her or get close you might need to seek help, same as if she's eating and drinking absolutely nothing, but otherwise watch her, let her know you are there for her and hopefully she'll come around.

    Sorry about your loss TB. Losing dogs is the worst.

    Good advice.

    yeah, im definitely giving her space, but also keeping an eye on her and letting her know im there. She kind of wagged her tail for the first time today and took some food from my hand a little bit ago. I'm honestly not handling this well myself but i try not to be around her when im in that state of mind. We'll be going for a nice long walk today. Not worried about biting or growling, she's a harmless sweetheart.

    yeah, losing a dog is different. They're just so innocent, so pure ....

    So sorry for your loss, TB... I'm also a dog kind of person and I simply love them all. They shouldn't live such short lives, they deserve all the best for their loyalty and devotion to humans.

    I think the fact that she wagged her tail and took some food is a positive thing.
    There is no reason to not show her you're struggling as well. Maybe not breaking down and showering her in slobbery tears and blubber but showing her that you miss her friend as well might be good for her, it might help her realise she doesn't have to go through it all alone. It's hard to know exactly what dogs are thinking but we treat them almost like they human in life, why not treat them the same when death comes into it.

    She knows i'm struggling, she saw me break down a few times. We go and sit next to his bed, bowl, toys(mostly balls, he loved tennis balls the most) etc and i actually try giving her comfort by "talking to her" about it. Basically letting her know that were going to ride this out together. Here are their last few pics together ...

    ... btw they not only have dog beds, but a full sofa and couch set in the garage. But Duke was having trouble getting in/on them and tbh has always preferred to sleep on the ground. The girl always preferred the couches and beds, but she decided for the past few months that she was gonna be hanging out next to him.

    Here they are playing with each other when they were just a few years old ...

    Here's a few pics of their one and only litter of puppies they had back in the summer of 2009 ....

    Those pups are cute
    The two of them look good together, it's no wonder she's mourning.

    @TechnicalBarbarity , sorry to hear, losing a furry family member is one of the most devastating things to deal with.

    Drinking a lager in the office before I go to lunch to the poop canteen. They can't cook for shit but hey it's the only food around. There's no beer either in the entire fucking compound, wtf, I had to bring my own beer to work. Shit is so relaxed during summer, most of the people are away on vacation so it's like a haunted palace.
