My boyfriend and I started dating over a year ago, and when I caught him cheating last week, I kicked him out. I bought Bear while we were together. I'm doing okay, but Bear keeps looking all over for him. Everytime we go outside, he checks the parking area for his truck, when I go upstairs and call for him to follow me, he sits at the door, looks at the door, looks at me.

When my boyfriend stopped by the other day to get some more of his stuff, Bear of course was ALL over him and when he left, Bear sat by the door and howled and barked.

This scene brought me to tears.

Does anyone know how long it will take Bear to forget? When will he stop looking for him? I think Bear loved him as much as i did.

I'm so sorry this happened, and it must make your own pain worse to see your dog missing him too.

Your dog will not forget him, but he will learn that life is still good without him around. Now might be a perfect time for both of you to take up a new doggie hobby; rally or obedience or agility, hiking or swimming. It would give you both something positive to focus on to make your forget the old routines.

Hugs to you both.

There's no real time you can put on this. (just like your heart) Bear will start bonding fully to you but in his own time.. I recommend taking him out to the dog park and spending a little more time then usual with him. Use this new found time to train him more and go out and make more doggy friends :)

Im sorry for what happened and it'll help when your X stops coming around. I hope a speedy recovery for you both.

Bear will never forget him, but he will learn to live without him. And even be happy with the new situation. Because Bear's heart is totally yours always and forever. Don't despair, hang in there. Just take one day at a time. Spend more time with Bear, playing, going to the beach, walking, just driving nowhere in the car. Forgetting somebody is hard work, but we must do it for our own happiness and sanity. Big hug for you!!
