I swear I'm losing it. I adopted a puppy and have been a complete mental case every since. I haven't stopped crying since about seven last night. My stepmom thinks it's "adopters remorse". All I know is that I can't stop thinking about Husker and how different she is from him. I know it's horrible, but I almost resent the puppy right now for it. I intentionally got a dog that was completely different, hoping that it would help. But it's not.

Now all I want to do is return the puppy. Her brother is still at the shelter, so she could go back in the pen with him and it would be like nothing ever happened. But even thinking that makes me feel like a scumbag, because who returns a living animal? So instead my brain is coming up with other excuses - she's part terrier so she'll probably run away without a closed fence. Grover probably won't like her. Think of all the money I could save by not keeping her. But they're still just excuses. It keeps coming back to Husker.

I know it hasn't even been a week  yet, and I should give it more time. I'm hoping my three day weekend will give me plenty of time to bond and get over it. I just don't know how many more days I can handle all this girly, emotional stuff.

The same thing happened with me last summer. I lost my dog two years ago in August, and my parents surprised us with a dog as a birthday present (my sisters and I all have June birthdays). My sisters took to Westley quickly, but it took me a while to warm up to him. Partly because he was more energetic, partly because everybody else was fawning and goo-gooing over him, and partly because he wasn't Sammie.

Now, though, I love him a lot, though I love him in a different way than I did Sammie. I do hope that things settle down for you, and that you become happy with your new dog.
