Chihuahua passed away, Havanese not wanting to eat
Our 14 year old chihuahua Paco passed away peacefully in his sleep last weekend. Our two-year old Havanese Lucy is definitely not quite acting like herself. She seems to be less active and hasn't been wanting to eat much. To be fair she's always been kind of a finicky eater but this morning I had to give her canned food (no kibble) to get her to eat breakfast.
For those who have lost a pet, what can I do or what can i expect for the next few days with Lucy? She definitely senses the sadness in the house and we're trying to do our best not to drown in our grief but when you've had a member of the family for over 14 years, it's impossible not to notice their absence.
My husband has already nixed the idea of getting another dog for at least a few years which I actually agree with. Having two dogs for our family was a bit of a handful.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
