Do you miss your old pet(s) so much that you refuse to adopt new ones?

Animals are part of the family and their death or absence can break our hearts. Part of the grieving process is treasuring their memory but putting it in the past and moving on. That doesn't mean we love them or miss them less, just that life will go on anyway and we need to move with it.
Perhaps a new animal friend, especially if you can give a home to an abandoned animal from a shelter, will help you more than you realise.
actually, we don't get another dog because putting the last one down was so traumatic that we want to avoid the pain.
We lost our dog after 14 years. This dog was wonderful and like most dogs, he thought he was human. We tried getting another pet, but, my husband just could not accept one. He seemed to compare any pet we got with the dog we had years ago. So yes, we missed our old pet so much, we could not adopt new ones.

Why do the ones who protest so much and point out wrongs, are so often with evil intentions?Do you think that people who seem to pounce upon social upheavals of the broadcasts in recent news, are undermining and perhaps have an agenda, not favorable to humanity, itself?
