Needing guidance. So I’m about a week and a half from deployment. Things are looking bright for the most part. Except one. My beloved canine companion had been missing for a few days. I live on a reserve installation with thousands of acres of woods, I worried of course. But she is a strong, youthful pit bull and figured she’d be ok until I found her or she found me. Unfortunately today, I found her corpse being torn apart by buzzards. I was overcome with guilt, anger. I’ve raised her from a pup, rescued her from the streets after belonging to a very abusive breeder. She always seemed to feel safe with me, and was extremely protective of me as well. And now I’m realizing she died alone without me, only to be consumed by scavengers. Many people would say she was only an animal, but she was my best friend to me. I feel somewhat lost
