Can someone help me get through this first day? I got my dog, a Chow & Lab mix, 10 years ago from the SPCA. She was two years old at the time. She had been terribly abused and it took months of constant loving attention to get her to warm up to me. I had her for over a year before she would let me touch her face. But of course, we finally bonded and she became a huge part of my life. She was so loving and adored affection. About a month ago, she began going downhill. I spent weeks preparing myself to let her go, but I never even thought about what it would be like when she was gone. It's torture. I have no routine now, everthing is out of wack and nothing is right. I had her put down about 1:30 this morning when she showed me she was in pain. The tumor on her spleen had grown a great deal and was bleeding. She had a belly full of blood. I know I did the right thing and I know getting rid of her excruciating pain is so much more important than my grief, but my house is torture without her. I'm so lost and don't know what to do. I can't eat, I can't sleep, but I can still feel the supersoft fur of her forehead against my lips when I would kiss her repeatedly on arriving home from work. God I miss her so much. Please, someone help me get through this first night without her. I miss my Serena and can't stop crying. I'm completely lost.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
