Projecting my sadness/anger at SD14
My dog died Tuesday night. Totally unexpected...she was four years old. I have no bio's. She was MY baby. I was and am devastated. I have always promoted my dog as our dog. Our family dog.
When my sweet baby dog died on Tuesday I called BM#2...she immediately dropped her plans and brought SD6 over. We took my dog to her fathers field where all of SD6 and families pets had been laid to rest. We were up until after 10pm dealing with all of this. She (BM#2) fed me and DH, she put gas in our vehicle, SD6 cried with me and was very loving and concerned. It was a blessing.
In retrospect I simply sent my SD14 a text that our dog had died. The response I got was "What?" I did not respond again. I posted that night on FB what had happened along with some "memorium pics of my dog...some of her and her cuteness, some with SD14, some with SD6, myself, and DH. SD14 has been on FB...I can tell by her activity. No acknowledgement, no comment, not even a " " face. Nothing.
I know that I am upset and depressed and grieving and I know I am angry at the universe that my sweet dog who was only 4 years old died so young and there was nothing I could do about it.
I am also angry though that SD14 has not acknowledged this. I just feel like it's a big EFF you to our family. If it were BM's dog it would be a family tragedy and if she were with us we would probably have to immediately return her. My dog LOVED her....the excitement of her life was on the Fridays that the girls return home. I am so disappointed and yes angry that my SD14 does not even care. I am so heartbroken and depressed and to SD it is not even worth a comment or condolence. Irrational or not...projected anger or not....I feel angry (offended?) at SD14 for this.
