Thread: I'm feeling conflicted.

  1. #1

    Default I'm feeling conflicted.

    My user name is RocoesDaddy. However, Roscoe died in my arms last June after having a massive seizure. It came out of the blue since he had never had a seizure before. I am not ashamed to say i shed many a tear over him.
    Months have passed and my family felt they were ready for another bully in the house. Well, my wife came home with a little brindle bully pup. My wife and daughter are ecstatic but I can't seem to get that instant bond I had with Roscoe. Chewy (the pups name) lives in my lap and stumbles around the house doing puppy things. I can't help but compare everything he does to Roscoe. I am sure things will change in time but right now instead of feeling the joy of having an having a new pup running around, I miss my Roscoe and I feel guilty for doing so. I'm sorry this isn't a very uplifting post, it's just how I feel right now.

    Oh!! I am so sorry for your loss of Rosco. No other bully will replace him. You just need to open your heart for Chewy. Not replace but open a new spot. Remember every bully baby is different. Give Chewy a chance and give him some lovins too.


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    I cannot, and more, refuse to imagine losing my bullies. I just know that it will change me forever. Remember that bullies are like snowflakes...there are no two exactly alike! Chewy needs your love now, and the gift of Roscoe will remain with you always.

    Trust me, chewy will be spoiled rotten and very much loved. It's just right now it feels like a scab has been ripped off and it's like old emotions from roscoes death are still there. I don't mean to come across as an overly emotional blathering idiot but Roscoe had my heart you know.

    Maybe coming here will be the best thing EVER for you, Chewy and even Roscoe

    Even though Roscoe is gone, I'm sure he'd love to know you had someone to blow snot on you when he sneezes. No bulldog that has ever walked the earth would want their person to be lonely, and I'm sure, as much as you loved your Roscoe, Chewy will be such a lucky person!!

    I've had my girl for years, and just joined this site last week. I have to admit, I kind LOVE it here. Looking at all these little puppies (especially in the intro section of the forum) makes me think back to all the cute little things Pais did over the years. Perhaps.... looking at all these floppy ears, warm loving eyes, and wrinkles wrinkles wrinkles will make it more fun to love Chewy for the pup he is, but also give you a smile and chuckle at all the good times you and Roscoe had

    Ohhhhh is your avatar pup Roscoe, or Chewy? And, if it's Chewy, I'd LOVE to see a picture of Roscoe

    That was Roscoe when he was around 6 months. Guess I need to somehow change my user name to chewysdaddy now.

    I'm so sorry about the loss of Roscoe. The hardest part of giving your heart to a dog or cat is the hole left when they leave us. I've been in your shoes so many times and remember too well the empty feeling and sadness. There is nothing we can say or Sweet Chewy can do to let that hole heal. It will happen..but we all heal differently. And all of our critters are different. It sounds like you feel a bit guilty over Roscoe's sudden passing. Just know there is nothing you could have done. You did your job by loving Roscoe with all your heart. Now it's time to open your heart again and it's hard. But I know it's going to happen. No way can you have a beautiful Bully Pup without falling in love. One way or the other...he's so getting in to your heart. I figure you might as well love him totally while he's a young bully...because he'll be grown before you know it! Don't compare..share! And start here with pictures and stories of BOTH your Bully Boys! Glad you are back!

    I feel so bad for your loss. I can"t imagine loosing my Gunnyboy he means the world to me. I love this boy so much and the thought of him not being there someday makes me cry and I was a combat marine and he stole my heart 9 yrs ago. I have a wonderful wife and grown kids but I am 67 yrs old and when he goes I don"t think I will be far behind him, another bully would not be the same. You can"t explaine to someone how these guys take your heart . He has changed my life in many ways, but most of all taught me how to Love.
