Oh, I feel SO awful for you. I recently lost my sweet boy very suddenly to illness, and it was just devastating. I can't IMAGINE what it must be like to have lost a pet in such a tragic, senseless way. It must doubly hard to deal with! My thoughts and prayers are with you. After I lost my Zach, I, like you, did not feel like doing ANYTHING. I work from home and barely anything got done...I'd wander around the house, sit and stare into space. For days, I just went through the motions of feeding the cats, and was barely eating myself. I felt like if I ate, I was going to get sick. I finally realized my cats were acting really weird and not eating much either so I had to shake it off and start paying a little more attention to them and playing with them to distract them...especailly the older one ADORED the dog and would sleep with him and follow him around. It will take time, maybe lots of time, to recover from this, but, in the meantime try not to blame Monse for not being your lost dog. He or she is probably puzzled and disturbed by her friend's absence AND your obvious distress. Hold her, comfort her, and play with her, even if it's not with 100% of your heart and attention. Even if you're just going through the motions at first, healing will come of it for both of you. Take comfort in the fact that you gave your baby a warm loving home for the short time you had her instead of her living a harsh life on the streets for her too brief life.
