He has had this dog from a puppy. She is 15. She has been with him through his single years, a marriage, a divorce, another bad relationship, and now me...so longer than anyone except his immediate family. She has lived a long life but I know when she goes, it's going to be a really really sad day for him. I'm not sure how to handle this. Help him cope? Give him space? Alone time?

I still grieve the loss of our dog that died a few years ago. Just let him know that it is ok to grieve as if this dog was a human. The dog has been with him when he couldn't count on others. The dog is just as much family as a human. I prey for his aching heart.
