Allow grieving: Pets become family. The loss of any family member is difficult at best. All the things that occur with any death in the family can occur when one loses a pet. Two or three months of grieving is reasonable, any longer runs the risk of developing disabling depression. Talk to those you trust about your loss, especially if you live alone. At the appropriate time you may want to get a new puppy.
