Remember Your Beloved Pet
Visiting my best friend again.

It's been three months since I have said goodbye to my dog. I got her as a three week old when I was 18 and now I'm almost 29. The decision to give her to a friend was heartbreaking but I had no other option.

Would it be damaging to her if I visited her? My friend says that I am always welcome but I am afraid of how it will affect my dog. Any advise?

Hard to say. She will be undoubtedly happy to see you again. Perhaps visit once as a test, then ask your friend if she seemed really sad after you left? She may be happy in her new home, so it might not be too hard for her. If she is really sad and mopes for days after you leave, then you might not want to visit again.
