Yesterday my mom told me my dog Strawberry died. I had her from when she was very young, about 2 months old. From then until now, it's already a few years. I cannot accept the fact. Crying, I cannot stop. Today I stayed in the office with no mind to work, I miss her. Can anyone give me advice on coping with it?

    Grief eventually passes. Make sure that your manager knows why you are so sad. You could always get another dog.

First and foremost I'm very sorry for your loss, I can't even begin to imagine the wreck I would be if I were to lose one of my cats.

To answer your question there's no magic bullet for the grief of losing a pet - just like there is none for the grief of losing a human loved one. There's no schedule or time limit on these things and different people cope with grief in different ways. What I can say though is that time is a great healer and while it's very raw right now you will feel better as time passes.
