Hi All

I have a little dilemma. Today I found out that my ex-boyfriends dog died. His dog lived with me for 6 months last year while he was away for work. We broke up while the dog was living with me and I still looked after her for 6 weeks afterwards, then my ex came and picked her up.

We have been broken up since July last year. We were speaking for a bit but haven’t for about 6 months. I sent him a happy birthday message but I got no response.

He has a lot of issues. He gets extremely depressed, anxious and has PTSD. I worry about him now as his dog was his world. Should I send my condolences? I just don’t know what to do. I loved his dog and she was a part of my life for 1.5 years.

Thank you so much I’ve had a few people tell me that it should be ok. I just don’t want to trigger him if I message him but I also know that he wouldn’t be handling it very well and worry about his state of mind. I might wait a couple of days as he would be feeling very overwhelmed. :)

It is heart breaking when a pet dies and him with PTSD, I would send him a card in a couple of days and let the hurt go out of him a bit:D

Thank you all. He moved a couple of months ago so I don’t have his new address. I can text him a nice message though :)
I just worry about his headspace and hope he has support around him.

Wellll tonight I sent him a nice text. I think I have been blocked. At least I tried to do the right thing and try and be civil.
