Take her for a walk. Give her some very special treats. Keep her active and eating and just BE there for her. It is awful that this happened but the pain will pass. She will always be with you.

She doesn't really go for walks, she just romps around outside with me. Everytime I let her out she looks under the deck to see if Ruby came back, then she just lays by the door. Thank you for your advice.
My deepest condolences. It is always a hard thing to go through. *Hugs to you
Thank you. *Hugs back

I don't know how you feel about it...I would think the remedy would be to go out and get another doggy friend for her. It would be something I would do if I had two dogs and one died.
I just read your story and I was ready to ball. I lost my heart-dog 5 yrs ago and I was still hugging her when she laid lifeless on my lap.
Right now just give coco lots of hugs and if you can...keep her with you to keep her stimulated.
I don't have much for advice to give because I never had two dogs at one time.
The pain and grieving eventually subsides...but they'll never be out of your heart.
I'm sorry for the loss of Heart. Another thing I found out yesterday is that it paralyzed her back legs. The day before she was walking around just fine. My mom didn't tell me because she though it would be too much. WE always have two dogs, because for 8 hrs there's no one around and Coco needs someone to keep her company. We've been looking into getting another dog, but the problem is my sister wants to get another corgi, but we don't want to have to deal with the health problem they have. (Such as hip hip dysplasia) But everyone else wants to get a mini goldendoodle, aussiedoodle, or labradoodle. She starting thowing a fit because she said I always to get to pick the pet. (With is really funny because she HATES animals, and she's 3 yrs older than me. A little old to throw a fit.) Thank you for your advice and condolences.
my condolences to you and your family and coco. just spend some extra time loving her and she will come out if this.
I'm so sorry for your loss....
I'm really sorry to hear about the loss of Ruby. :(
It's going to be hard on everyone for awhile. But, just think of the great life you provided Ruby with for those years. Think of all those happy times you had with her and I hope you can find some peace in that.
As for Coco, she is probably confused. Spend extra time with her to keep her mind off the fact that Ruby is missing. Play her favorite game, take her for walks and give her treats. Perhaps you could even teach her a new trick. Just do your best to keep her mind active.
Thank you for your advice. I've been trying to play with her but she just doesn't seem up to it. She just looks at me and lies back down. I'll try to keep her busy though.
Condolences on your loss of Ruby. So, so sad for you.
So sorry for your loss. I agree with the others, to spend extra time with Coco. It will be good for both of you. Take care.
