Hi, sorry to hear about your GSD! 

When my Border collie died, Smokey my Husky took it hard (and still misses him today 6months later!)

She wouldn't eat for about a week and cried the whole time ... Only thing I did that helped was getting another Husky puppy ;) she started eating and then played with Tsunami so it made it a little better for her I think ...

But she will still look for Wollie and cry if she finds a toy or something of his... I have no idea how to help, but I'm sure others will give you good advice on here :D

I second Loudlucky's comments   Lunar went off his food and was very very depressed when Cain went over the bridge just before Christmas  -  then we got Marley and for the first time in his life he started to play, and then he started to eat again  -  he still looks a little depressed on occasions - but when puppy Marley starts to play with him he seems to forget his grief.

Yes, its unfortunately the only way I know how to help them... The Husky needs canine companionship 24/7 they do not do well when losing a furry friend in my experience ;)

I'm so sorry for your loss.

It will take time for all of you to grieve for the loss of Reeko.

I wish I could suggest one thing that would magic away all of this pain but sadly I can't. Exercise is good for mental health and advised to help treat depression in both humans and dogs alike, so plenty of long walks together may help a little.

Run free over the rainbow bridge Reeko. :runfree:

Thank you so much everyone .. i am trying to keep him to his routine as much as possible .. my dog walker is amazing with him .. he takes him on 8 mile runs and through rivers which kaiser is loving .. i have seen signs that he is lonely .. although i would love another dog .. i have to consider my options .. ive stopped his breakfast as he has never really been a big breakfast eater as he hates getting up of a morning .. for a husky he does enjoy his lie ins .. lol .. tonight i made him his favourite and he did eat some of it .. and he seemed to enjoy it .. which was good to see .. but i can see he is a bit depressed and grieving for Reeko .. i hope i can get him through this i really do .. thank you all
