Fill hole in your heart with some puppy love

  • Print

DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS: I've gone into a deep depression over the recent loss of my dog, who was my only friend in the world. Would it be bad of me to adopt another dog only month later? I wonder if you think it is too soon. I will always love my old dog, but my life is unbearably lonely without a dog to talk to, care for and to take for a walk every day. I have no close human friends. My old dog is always with me in spirit. -- Broken Hearted Over Her Death, West End

Dear Broken: Your dog always wanted you to be happy. That's for sure. You know how loving dogs are and how sad they are if you are crying. If you can think of it as both of you -- by that I mean you and your old dog -- taking in a homeless pup, you will not feel like you're being disrespectful to your old doggie. Leave a picture of your old dog up on the mantle and she can watch while you heal and give some of that wonderful love you have for dogs to a homeless new dog -- a lively puppy might be what you need and won't seem like a replacement.

 

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts: I met a married woman at my wife's Christmas party who I know from being online. She saw me and her eyes got big. She whispered: "I didn't know you were married," and I said "I didn't know you were, either." I didn't realize she was going to use the threat of this secret to her advantage. She is constantly sending me messages and photos. I don't want her! She's a real pest. If I tell her to get lost or block her, she will let my wife know I'm messing around on her again. What should I do? -- Bad Husband, Winnipeg

Dear Bad Husband: It's hard to work up any sympathy for you or her. You're a bad actor and so is this woman. Write her back and tell her you've decided to be true to your wife and you think she should be true to her husband. That will turn her off. Then get off that service and make it true -- invest your energy in taking your wife out for dinner, movies and walks in the snow.
